One or two

Post by thriftycrafter on Sun 18 Jan 2009 - 21:32

Ok Maria here goes, some of these are a few months old now but I didn't realise I hadn't bucketed them so here they are, mostly for My brother and SIL's balls album of do's they went to mainly in the Sgt's Mess. He's retired now, so no more posh frocks.

]
I have done the journalling page for this but I didn't get a photo of it. The theme was round the world.
]
I bought a magazine with some beads on the front and this purple glass one was just the job for this.
]
I started this one ages ago, last year sometime and have only just got round to putting the journalling on.

]
a ladies night in Blackpool with the buffs, I haven't done the journalling page for this one yet.

More more balls; Battle of Britain this time, doh I don't know why it's underlined thinks it's an image


I thought I'd put this one on ages ago, but it's not in the bucket so perhaps not, apologies if you've seen it before

For my brothers 'balls' album, sorry I'm not great a photographing these and scanning them is beyond me, I have to get three scans then try and find the instructions on welding them, forget it. Had fun with the snaps on this one, in their table place cards there are pics and journalling, under the bumper car one too, I used the picture it 9 thingy to give the same pics neon edges which was quite funky and V fairground, he was impressed, bless him. It was a real job trying to find papers for this LO though as the frame for the photo had all sorts of colours in that didn't really go with their clothes.

Wow Karelyn, you have been busy. Its great to see them.

the smart ones are all very posh and stylish but I love the Paris one best- it has so much atmosphere.

I love the big purple glass bead and adore the lacy cardstock and the letters on 'funfair' but my very favourite layout has got to be the 'quel heure est il' one. Is that clock stamped? or is it an overlay? and how did you do the clock with roman numerals or was it a set piece? I love everything about this layout.

Not as busy as you think, some are quite 'old', but I've been doing a lot of finishing off jobs lately, and the ball ones are fairly recent.
The clocks have all kids of things on, the big silver bit is an acetate overlay, and the roman numerals one is also an acetate piece rescued form last years mystery kit effort form the CC over the road, I took my thing I made apart and reused it on this. There is also a real watch face on there and some pics from a sheet of vintage clock parts.
Thanks for your comments on the Paris one, as I was thinking it was quite boring, possibly because all the photo's are straight LOL

They are all fabulous but the clock one has that extra something.
Love the black swirly cardstock. I just ordered some from QVC and it came this
morning. 12 pieces, 12 x 12 in 6 colours. It's very nice and I am pleased
with it. Wish I'd bought 2 packs now.
Where do you get your from ?

Ooh, your eggs are cracking! Goaty
Wow Steph, I just bought the one sheet, so far I've used it on 3 LO's with careful cutting and I think theres about a 3" strip left LOL, I must have got it in the states as it has a price in dollars on the cellophane, enjoy yours, it's lovely stuff. I've got similar in blue that came in a pack of KI memories papers, but it's a larger swirl, not quite as sophis.
