And, HAPPY FLAG DAY!!!!
Kim, from The Scrap-a-Teeny Girls here!
2 years ago, my son, Jacob, participated in a re-enactment of the Revolutionary War with his classmates. Being a snap-happy-scrapper, I was ready with my camera!!!
I began with an 8x8 album with some tabbed, acrylic & chipboard pages; some covered in patterned paper by Karen Foster & Sugar Tree, but the rest I left raw! Unfortunately, the Soldier die is not from CC&M, but from Little Extras.
all from Creative Cuts & More!
On pp 3-4, I got really creative with Hinges!
I trimmed the decorative pieces off & used them for the tab & to make a little banner on page 3. then I used the leftovers to make a flag pole on page 4. I also used that sweet little banner at the top from CC&M!
On pp 5-6, I used a small star cut from a sheet of acrylic & then I used some of Tim Holtz's alcohol ink on it! Also on this page is a small antique-style frame around my silly boys face! I just love the little filmstrips Terry has! The are great to use with the proof sheets you get when you pick up your photos!
As you've see in the past, I love to think of different ways to use my supplies, so also on page 6 is a card to showcase some more photos of my son in action! (By the way, pg 6 is an acetate one - so things show through the back too!)
I finished up the last couple of pages with a few more fun dies from CC&M: another great filmstrip, another nameplate & buckle & that adorable schoolhouse!
Other supplies I used were as follows:
Various ribbons from my stash; digital images from Vintage Holidays Shop on Etsy; vintage book pages from the story of "The Dare Boys" by Stephen Angus Cox; Tim Holtz Filmstrip stamp; Teresa Collins; Crystal Sticker Elements (stars); Reminisce & Cosmo Cricket Stickers: 7 Gypsies decorative book edging.
If you'd like to see close-ups of all the die-cuts, you WILL! Just follow the blog hop & when you get to "The Scrap-a-Teeny Girls" blog, you'll see some close-ups at the end of my sister's post there!
