I picked these noodles up at Target to try wanting something good but fast to fix and not have to stay in a hot kitchen with it being so hot outside. They are not as salty as Ramen noodles, and Emma and I enjoyed them while Dennis was out of town a couple of weeks ago.
So the main pages are the rounded banner size. I took the leftover pieces of Hambly overlays and made different sizes to add even more of a layered look.
In the picture above and below, the classic negative camera film frame and the polaroid were also cut with the Silhouette. I cut those first, measured the opening, and cropped the photos in Photoshop Elements to fit them.
I got the idea from Sassafras Lass' blog...someone else had made an album using transparencies with the stickers. It inspired me so much, I had to do it. And so glad I did. It looks like it took hours, but this was the fastest and quickest album I've ever done.
Everything just flowed together without having to think too hard.
Unlike some of my other albums and some of my fault in adding too much bulk, I did not add thick embellishments at all on the pages inside, so it lays flat when closed.
It feels good to use product that you already have and it goes together so easily.
Emma loves to work with me in the scrap room, and she will pick up whatever she sees. I didn't think she would pick up pages of the album as I was working on it...until I went to work on it a little and some of the pages had disappeared. Luckily she hadn't cut it or marked on it ;)
You can see in some of these pictures that I did cut patterned paper pages to the size of the album and then did the same thing I did with the Hambly, used leftovers to make smaller pages in between for added interest and layers.
So with the pages that were patterned paper, I did have to worry about using stickers that were the same size and shape.
Didn't really have to add as much journaling as I normally do. This page has the most. I used letter stickers and/or stamps throughout most of the pages...
My favorite picture and page...
Fun little album to make...hope it inspired someone else like it inspired me.
