Timberline Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Divas’ Blog Hop!! If you’ve come from Felica Tortorici’s blog you are in the right place! If you’ve jumped here I encourage you to head over to the Damask Divas’ blog to see the full list of participants and to view all of their creations featuring Timberline! 

As I was getting ready for this blog hop, I knew I wanted to use the Timberline Workshop On The Go™ Scrapbooking Kit for my project. Every WOTG Kits comes with a recipe guide that gives you detailed instructions on how to create (4) 12″x12″ scrapbook layouts.  I typically like think outside the box and create my own scrapbook pages, but I LOVED the layout design that was included in this kit!! I followed it almost to a “T”!! BUT THERE WAS ONE PROBLEM….the layout on the recipe guide appears to be designed for camping pictures. I am not a camper, so I have no such pictures! Then I remembered our most recent Disney vacation and my photos from Tom Sawyer Island would fit into this theme pretty well! So that is what I’m going with, and here is the finished product!

#1-I love the look of typed text, but I really prefer for my journaling to be handwritten. When I look at my grandmother’s pictures I love to see the handwriting on the back of the photos or in the photo books. There is just something special about seeing handwriting from generations past! I used a Versamat™, Ruler, and a pencil to create lines on the Colonial White Cardstock to help my handwriting be straight. Once it was written I simply went back through an erased the pencil lines.  With all of the embellishments/accents that surround the journaling block I added my journaling last. I wanted to be sure that I wasn’t writing in an area where an embellishment would lay.

#2- Liquid Glass was the best adhesive I found to adhere the Irresistables™ Frames & the wood veneer accents.

#3-The triangle Irresistables™ shape on the first layout started out as a square. Rather than tucking the other half of the square underneath my photo to create the appearance of a triangle I used a Craft Knife & Versamat™ to cut the Irresistables™ Frame down to the size & shape I wanted for my layout .

#4- I used Washi Tape to temporarily hold down the earth stamped image while stamping the boy/girl symbols. After the boy/girl symbols were stamped I was able to layer all of the accents, embellishments, and adhere the woodgrain B&T Duo.

 Free To Be Me  May SOTM

I stumbled upon this sketch by Sweet Paper Treats on Pinterest, and I knew exactly how I wanted to use the SOTM!

CTMH: Free To Be Me

Using resist patterned cardstock from the Free To Be Me Paper Packet, I added a layer on top of the white card base. Next I grabbed the Oodles Of Doodles Stamp Set, Lagoon Exclusive Ink™, and cut the banner using the Artiste Cricut® Cartridge. The sentiment is stamped using Black Stazon™ Ink on White Daisy Cardstock and another piece of cardstock from the Free To Be Me paper packet. That’s one of the bonuses of this paper packet. One side has a glossy resist pattern and the other side is just normal cardstock- perfect for stamping!! For the final touch I added a few Aqua Dots.
