What you need
October and August Photocentric downloads to make stamps
Text stamps with names from your own design, feather stamp own design.
A nice set of coordinated papers. I used the Teresa Collins Vintage Finds collection, Twine, ink, bling and an edge punch. 7 small photos. Shrink plastic and jewellery details.
What to do
My kids are the ‘thing’ in life I am the most thankful for so I wanted to make a mini showing that.
I stamped several times with the October Give Thanks stamp and cut out. I used this on every spread of the mini as well as the front and back to give the design a repetition.
I made 3 stamps with the names of my kids. I used ‘1942 report’ font.
I used the chevron stamp from the August download and stamped on shrink plastic to make a piece of jewellery for my mini.
I cut 2 different PP 4x12 and folded in half. I then cut the edge of one piece (both front and back) with an edge punch so that the middle part will show outside when put together. I made two holes on the edge and tied a piece of twine to hold the mini together.
On the front I added several layers of embellishments. I stitched the edges before gluing it down. I also inked all edges.
I printed 7 photos from when my 3 kids were all babies. I made all photos black and white to make them coordinate.
I then put one photo on each side of the mini and decorated. I used one ‘bingo’-decoration on each spread for repetition.
Time taken: 3 hours in total ( over 3 days)
TIP: Make sure you stitch everything before you glue it down so that you will not get stitching on the back side of the design.
