Altered Mouse Traps

A few months ago, the latest craze was Altered Mouse Traps.
Take a look at my 3 creations.  Of course they are all Timmed up!
Love all the metal embellishments.

"C" is for Collector

Hi, Everyone,
What do you get when you combine Tim Holtz, 7Gypsies, & a lot of Good Junk?
well. . .  you get . . . "C" is for Collector. . . a unique staggered mini-book filled with lots of great things & stuff!  This was one class offered at a Tim Holtz Inspired Extravaganza that my friend, Tiger, and I hosted at Treasured Memories several months ago.

Check it out!

p.s.  The lens on my camera has been giving me grief lately & has finally died.  Please forgive the blurred images.  I'm off to buy a new camera.

Mini-Albums Displayed

Hi, Everyone,
As you will see, Mini-Albums are my thing.  The more tabs, flaps, folds, & varying page sizes the better.  These are only a few of my favorite ones!

12x12" Travel Page Layouts (pages 6-10)

Today we are going to see pages 6-10 of the 12x12" Travel layouts I created last month. 
Tim Holtz's Globe & Camera dies look great 2-toned when two different coloured papers are run through the dies and layered ontop of one another.  Then to further embellish the cameras, Tim's Filmstrip Ribbon was added to his Memo Pins.  Layering Tim's Filmstrip die over photos is like peaking through a window. . . and the ripped papers at the edge, the torn tissue tape, & the distressed edges of the photos really give the layouts a worn look.  Enjoy!

12x12" Travel Page Layouts (Pages 1-5)

Hi, Everyone,
Recently I made 10 Travel layouts for July's Monthly Page Kits at Treasured Memories.  They were displayed at the front of the store on their huge fabric board.  Today I am showing you 5 of these layouts.
I used the Tim Holtz Film Strip die, Camera die & Globe die.  The layouts were a great success and the page kits sold out in 1 day.

See how I double cut the Camera & Globe then layered the teal over the navy.  The effect was beautiful.  What do you think?
