When I received this months kit from Simon says Stamp all I could think of was using pics of Mum and I couldn't get past that, to think of a card so I put it away again. This weeks challenge at Everybody Art Challenge was for something Old and once again all I could see in my head was the Simon Says Stamp kit and Mum's Photos, I decided to stop fighting it and just do it.
I'm so please how these pocket pages worked out. I used the cards for the smaller photos. I cut round part of the butterfly so the photo would slip under it and then embossed the back so the butterfly was rounded. The other small photo I place inside a Spellbinders die.
I used the Lavish Branch and the Hydrangea punch for the smaller flowers and used the Flowers on my Mind stamps from the kit which can be brought separately if you wish. Also in the kit was Liquid Pearls in Black that made the small pearl like dots for the flower centres.
You've been on my mind sentiment is also in the stamp set and again I knew I had to use it and I added the Simon Says Stamp Mum die, along with the Love, Small Doily Hearts finished with a Holiday Shapes heart.
I also finally used the Cup of Tea die has a reminder that a cup of tea would always been offered when you visited.
I'm going to do a one or two photo 12 x12 page to go next to these pocket pages. Maybe I will be able to do something similar for my Dad.
Do pop over and check out the team, also hope you can join us this week with our something old challenge.
