Welcome to day 2 of the Papertrey Ink July release countdown! Today I have more projects to share using my new Library Card stamp, Library Pocket die, Fillable Frames #6 set, and Fillable Frames #6 die.
All of the new stamp sets and products I am sharing today will be available on the 15th at Papertrey Ink.
I mentioned about a week ago that I had spent the last 2 weeks of June on a road trip with my mom, aunt, and cousin. It was a really great trip and I saw so much - I still can't believe all of the things that I did! I am still getting pictures organized and ready to print, but I picked a few of my favorites for a scrapbook page that I want to include as part of my album. I printed all of my pictures 2" x 2" and had printed out several to use in the library pockets. I ended up using everything I printed out, both in the pockets and then also in the photo border at the bottom of the page.
Here's a look at the Library Pocket pieces fresh from the die cut machine. There are score lines impressed into the die cuts to make it a snap to fold and assemble the final pocket piece.
I used Scor-tape to adhere my pockets together, using a piece on each of the tabs - I don't want anything coming apart on my page. Fold the tabs to the back of the pocket, apply the adhesive to the tabs...
and then fold up the bottom to complete the pocket.
I started laying out the elements for my layout. I want to adhere photos to the library cards in the 4 pockets and do a border on the left hand side of the page. I used the Library Ledger patterned paper, kraft, Ocean Tides, Vintage Cream, and Aqua Mist for my color scheme.
Next I started adding elements: where I wanted my photos, a little title piece in the lower right hand corner, and felt, paper & sewing details on the border
This page is a little busier than what I usually do, but I definitely am loving the collagey look. I played with details and embellishments (buttons, vintage postage stamps, word confetti pieces) and arranged everything until I liked how it looked before adhering everything down. All of the library pockets are adhered to the page with Scor-tape as well so they stay put.
Here's a peek at the pocket elements. I used the tiny attacher to put the photos on the cards and then journaled a caption for each picture.
And a closer look at my title piece. I used the Fresh Alphabet and the year from my Mini Scrapbook Series: Library Ledger set (and yes, I have heard you about additional year sets... something that will come in the future for sure!)
Next I have a card to share using Fillable Frames #6:
For the last release, I created this card with the All About You set. Let me show you how easy this one layer card technique is!
The actual technique that I used was masking. The cool thing about masking with a die cut is that it is so easy to make your mask. I used a sticky note for my mask and I just ran it with the Fillable Frames #6 die cut through my die cut machine. Make sure that the die overlaps some of the sticky so that it will stick to where you want to mask.
I stamped the frame image with a sentiment onto kraft cardstock.
And then covered the image with the mask that I die cut from the sticky note.
Next, stamp over the mask and filling the cardstock with whatever image that you choose. For this project I am using Polka Dot Basics II in Hawaiian Shores ink.
When you are done stamping, remove the mask to reveal the frame image and sentiment underneath!
Another look at the finished card. I added a Simply Chartreuse button with Rustic Cream button twine with a bit of XL rickrack cut from Harvest Gold felt and attached to a Hawaiian Shores base.
I love this look that you can create with just ink and not a lot of layers of cardstock.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and thank you for all of the comments and excitement for this release!
