Hello everyone! Dana Tatar here today sharing the first project I have created as part of the Guest Design Team. I created a fun layout featuring Keepsake Envelopes and photos that my daughter and nephew took themselves with an Instax camera over Christmas vacation. The 4.1 x 2.1” clear self-adhesive envelopes were a fun way to attach photographs to my layout.
I always enjoy looking at the world through my children’s eyes. When you give a kid a camera, you never know what you’re going to get! My daughter and her cousin certainly captured the joy of the season and the silliness that ensues during the time they spend together.
I used the E-Z Runner® Permanent to secure patterned papers and journaling cards to the base of my layout. Next, I used Creative Photo Corners Mix in Gold to hold the photos in place inside the clear Keepsake Envelopes.
In addition to helping to keep the pictures in place, the photo corners added a fun pop of gold to the page. It coordinates with the other gold accents I added in my design, and also helps play up the overall festive feel of the layout. The Keepsake Envelopes are a great way to easily secure objects to projects without covering up the elements below.
I used one Dodz Adhesive Dot Medium to secure a metal flair button to the outside of the Keepsake Envelope. Note: Keepsake Envelope comes with a re-sealable flap. Because I left the envelopes open on this project, I removed the adhesive from the front of each envelope.
Finally, I embellished the layout with wooden snowflake buttons that I secured with Dodz Adhesive Dot Medium. The strong bond is perfect to hold heavier embellishments to the page.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’ll be back in a couple weeks sharing a fun off-the-page-project.
