Wild Whisper Kit Blitz 4 with Marcia

Hi Guys my summer of 1997 returns with our trip to the Hoodoos. I wanted to have a cool background like the hoodoos so I created my own.
  I took a piece of tissue paper and sprayed it with various TH sprays including Ground Espresso, Spiced Marmalade, the metallics and a few others.
 I also added ribbon for another texture that I inked with TH Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick and Blue Jean. I also scrunched everything up before gluing it down.
 I made my own Hoodoos by ripping up a light brown piece of card stock. These were then inked with TM Walnut, Vintage Photo and Lemonade. I added blue photo mats and orange titles and arrows to make things pop. Also added the ribbon from the kit around the 2 people in my picture to draw them closer and a navigational brad. I also used brown Dew Drops for more depth and something shiny.

 I did this as a double layout. Everything is pretty much the exact same. My title I layered so it stands out. This photo is by itself as my grandma reminded me of her memories and I want to add the story. As kids of 16, 13 and 11 we dared grandma (who at the time was in her 50's) to go down the 600 foot slope and back up. Well she did and quite quickly too much to our shock! It was a good day that is for sure!

Kit Blitz 3 Wild Whisper with Marcia



Hi guys. I am still stuck in the past. It has been great working on these old photos. It has brought back many memories and started conversations. My grandma even shared a story I had forgotten (more about that on another layout). This layout is pretty simple because I wanted to get multiple photos on it.

I started with a blue card stock background this time. I have been trying to make my pages lighter so this time I cut out the centre, and I now have another piece to use for something else. I layer on a piece of patterned paper, and cut out another piece of card stock.

Next I got all my pieces ready to go.
 This piece I used for the date is the leftover piece from when I made the punch out for layout #1. I have a habit of keeping all my bits and finding somewhere to use them.

 The leaves from the kit needed a little extra, so they got stamped with a random pattern. I just picked up the closest stamp and down it went with TH Peeled Paint Ink.
 My tag is a leftover from another project. It had a number on 1 side but the other was blank, so I flipped it over, and again used TH Peeled Paint Ink.

Assembly happened last. I added my journaling to the tag. Some TH Arrows to the top corner and some pearls from the kit that I have used alcohol ink to change the colour. I have no title for this page but it will find a happy home in my album.

Thanks for joining me. See you soon!!!

Fun Friday with Pam

Another long weekend is here. Gearing up for some family events. This usually involves me cooking for the masses! Wishing you all a safe and happy weekend.
 In the mean time, this is what I have been playing around with this week:
More pocket letters! This one is a series of fairies in jars! 
Stuffing Fairies in Jars! Always my favourite pastime!
For the Faux Mason jars, I stamped with the metal ink on a piece of mylar. Then cut it out and used it for an overlay effect overt the fairies. The lid was stamped on scrunched up metal duct tape. I like it because it has a sticky back and can just be trimmed and stuck to most backgrounds.
Apologizing for the terrible photos. I need a new phone......
Then I got out the 'shrink dink' clear sheets. I first stamped the image for the mason jar and fairy. Make sure and punch hanging holes before you shrink. To color I  flipped it over, so I could color the fairy in with out loosing the outline. The photo shows before and after shrinking.
.
Be sure to hold your shrink project secure as you shrink it. I use these old medical clips and my heat proof craft sheet.
There you have it a Fairy Charm.
Fairies again.
This is self explanatory, I started with a copy of an old photo. Then decorated her up with leaves from the stash.
Gypsy Pocket letter! I love ephemera. While attempting to tidy my 'happy place' I came across a lot of 7 Gypsies packaging I had saved. That was the jumping off point for this pocket letter.
 
Thanks Pinterest for the Easter Peeps!

Wild Whisper Kit Blitz 3 with Marcia

Hi Guys, I am back at it with more photos from 1997.  This turned out to be one of the best summers of my childhood. My grandparents took my sister, cousin and myself out touring around Southern Alberta. Amazing!!!

Today I wanted to make my own background. So I used sticky powder and foil paper at the top of my page to make a sky.
 And, the results are in... I really liked it. I think I will do this again  Next I cut out a whole bunch of trees and made a treeline.
They were inked with TH Peeled Paint and Hickory Smoke cut in 2 different sizes. The lower trees are popped up at the top to give some dimension. After these were glued down I added ribbon to the bottom of the tree line, added my title 'adventure' from the kit and added my bear (this wasn't in the kit but can be purchased at the store!) I also added a compass brad by my title. I used photo mats for my photos as the background was busy and I wanted to ground my photos. I only taped the sides down and inserted a journal card behind to keep track of my memories. Last but not least was the words 'my tribe'!
I hope you are having fun with this kit. I know I am!! See you soon!
