Hi Vicki-Ann here for Helmar today. Hope all the Fathers had a wonderful day yesterday. I have done a scrapbook page layout that could be used for all those photos that were taken yesterday. I made this scrapbook layout for my daughter to use for her Husband. It's his very first Father's Day this year and with a new baby (my first Grandchild) I thought it would be nice for her to have a page that she just has to pop a photo on and it's done for her photo album. I used a free downloadable image on the page, just so you got an idea of what it would be like with a photo and finished.
List of items I used.
- Helmar Acid Free Glue
- Helmar Liquid Scrapdots
- Kaisercraft 12 x 12 scrapbook paper
- Tim Holts washi tape
- Gears (I used a Punch but metal gears would work)
- Vintage Photo Distress Ink
- 6 1/2 paper pad called 75 cents
- Black Cardstock
- Free printable image. Man with Plane. http://www.public-domain-image.com/free-images/vintage-photography/vintage-photo-man-fishing-on-lake
- Free printable image. Fathers Day quote. http://simpleasthatblog.com/2011/06/fathers-day-printable.html
I used a Kaisercraft 12x12 sheet of scrapbook paper for the background. I added some Tim Holtz washi tape on top of that in 3 places just strips randomly. I then grabbed some cardboard and ripped the top layers off to show the corrugations. I inked this with the vintage paper distress ink. I used some tags and random papers from the Kaisercraft range 6 1/2 inch paper pad called 75 cents. There are tags and shaped papers in the back of the pack so these were perfect for this layout. I inked all the edges with the distress ink so it all blended together. Some domino paper and scrabble papers from scraps of Kaisercraft papers just to add some other collage elements. The printables for the Fathers Day quote and the photo image are free printables and are above in the list in items used. The gears are a punch that I punched out in some scrap cardstock.
I laid everything out and took a photo before I moved it to glue it all down into place. I find this helps me to see if I need to move anything and what I have missed doing. What I want to add dimension to add a bit of interest.
I used the Helmar Acid Free Glue on the back of the cardboard and all the papers.
You need very little to get it all down well and the tip of the bottle is great and very easy to do thin lines of glue.
For dimension on some of the pieces I used the Helmar Liquid Scrapdots You need small amounts, just tiny blobs in a couple of places and do not push it down, so you get the dimension. Just lightly pop it in place. Some pieces were flat on the page and half off on the cardboard. So I added the Helmar Liquid Scrapdots to one side and the Helmar Acid Free Glue on the other side. These elements were only on copy paper so I added cardstock to the back for stability.
Tip... I do all the dimensional pieces last as the Helmar Liquid Scrapdots takes time to set and go hard.
