Hi everyone, it’s Pam here.
‘Time Machine’ is a great collection, with, unsurprisingly, a time theme! It’s full of rich dark colours, greens and browns, and the coordinating die cuts have sentiment strips, clock, cogs and gears which makes it a fantastic collection for masculine layouts. However, it has it’s pretty feminine papers too, and that’s what I used for my layout of my daughter, her gran and her cousin.
As you can see I was in the mood for a bit of distressing. First I tore a piece of ‘Gears’ paper in two, and inked and distressed the edges. I used a craft knife to rough up the outer edges and applied ‘Vintage Photo’ distress ink on the edges. To cover the gap between the two pieces of paper I tore a strip of the ‘Gadget’ paper. I constructed the layout and then machine stitched around the edge before adhering it to the card stock.
The layout has been embellished with some of the die cut collectables, some clock tape (love that!) and a decorative strip from the sticker sheet. Some of the die cuts are raised on foam tape to add a little dimension.
I’ll add some journalling under the sentiment strip later.
I hope you love this collection as much as I do.
