Today Debby Lewis is our guest designer.
My son Jacob was my best photo model growing up. However, he is now 17 and a typical teenage boy - photo shy. That was until Michelle came into his life. He now loves having photos taken of the two of them. When I was asked to create a layout for the Making Memories' blog, I decided to do a teen layout so I could include them. They both jumped at the idea.
Michelle and Jacob happily posed for me. After our photo shoot they helped by picking out words they say. Michelle picked out Jacob’s phrases. Jacob picked out Michelle’s phrases. They had fun helping me design a scrapbook page about them - their way. Making Memories Just Chillin’ collections and and the Slice helped me create this layout from them. We all had a great time creating this together.
Coin: a token from a historical museum and punched a hole
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink Scattered Straw
Texture Tool: Tim Holtz Hammer
From the Slice:
-People Figures: Two layers with the top layer raised with Pop Dots.
-Peace Sign: I cut one on the front of the paper and another from the back of the paper and glued them together.
-Crowns: I used the Slice to make their crowns from
copper. The thin layer of copper
metal is best. You may have to
practice a little in order to get your blade on the proper setting. It should cut and then you will have to
go around and probably pop a little out or snip a few times. I used the heavier piece of
copper. I engraved the crowns very
deep using the Slice and then I took scissors and cut it out. It was very easy.
