Organize your Stuff: Week 6 (round 4): Photos part 1

It is ironic that it is photos week this week, as we sent about ten layouts worth of photos to Costco on Saturday, and the photo printer has been broken since.  The POW is not happy. Last we heard, they might have the parts tomorrow night…. Hmmm…

Go figure, Creative Me finally has a little free time with the WMD asleep, and Awesome Auntie and the Toddler at swim lessons, and no photos… during photo week!

However, Creative Me and the POW did complete the tutorial as promised for Tuesday Trio and their pink and black challenge for Sketch 65. (sketch is flipped upside down).This is a pretty easy technique that we have seen floating around the net, most recently at Operation Write Home a few months back.
Paper pieced embossed papers

Step 1: Hand cut, die cut, or punch paper shapes.

Step 2: Glue shapes to desired area of paper.

Step 3: Place paper in an embossing folder and run through die cut or embossing machine (I have a Cuttlebug).

Step 4: Remove custom papers from embossing folder.

Step 5: Embellish!

Hopefully, the planets, the pets, and the people will cooperate!

Becky said...

Oooohhh, way cool how you did this! I probably would have tried to emboss the bottom piece separate from the die cut pieces. Beautiful!
