Sentimental Journey Briefcase Scrapbook, Part 2

I am continuing my post from yesterday with pages 3-8 of my Sentimental Journey Brief case scrapbook. This is really a Sentimental Journey as my husband and I went on this cruise in 1994! I had not done anything with the pictures so this ablum was perfect. On the covers and pages 1 & 2 I had sanded the edges of the Travel Journal Designer Series Paper.

On pages 3 & 4 below I sponged the edges after sanding:

On pages 5 & 6 below, I used the negative part of the Top Note die to accent the photos:

Blissful Bride Card with Apricot Appeal and Bride’s Specialty Paper

For thisBlissful Bride wedding card I used Bride's Speciality Paper. I brayered the striped pattern paper with Apricot Appeal and stamped the image in Not Quite Navy. This photograph does not do it justice. In order for the image to show up solid I had to turn off my flash. I hope you try it.

Watercolor Trio meets a Brick Wall Technique

For this Tuesday Technique I chose Brick Wall. I just received my Watercolor Trio stamp set and thought it would look nice on the brick wall background. You stamp your background stamp first, I used Stampin' Up!'s Sanded Background. Next stamp your main image using a "solid stamp". I chose Watercolor Trio from Stampin' Up!'s new Summer Mini 2010. Once you are done stamping, use your paper trimmer to cut 1/2" horizontal strips – keep them in order! Next using a ruler and pencil mark off 1" increments on the 1st row. On the 2nd row mark 1/2" then 1" increments for the rest of the row. Repeat row 1 & 2 until all rows are cut. TIP: Keep each row in order as you cut them, otherwise you will have a jigsaw puzzle!

Next I used the direct to paper technique to ink the edges of each "brick". Using snail I then adhered the bricks to a layer of cardstock that enhances the image. You will not use all your bricks, just chose the ones you need to complete your "wall".  This is a sneak peak of one of the 3 cards I will be teaching at my technique class tomorrow night. Enjoy!
