Today, am sharing a layout using Leigh's Pages with Papertrey Sketch #6. Am glad to have found Leigh's challenges because it made me use (or think of using) the stamps i've been, ahem,cough,cough, hoarding, ahem, keeping :) Thank you, Leigh!
Title: These Moments
The February blog hop at Papertrey was going on while i was making this page and the hop's theme had been interactive cards/projects. I knew i wouldn't be able to finish this to meet the deadline, but in the spirit of the hop :), and because i love interactive elements on pages, i've put my journaling on a slider. It's a spur of the moment decision too haha! (There's a mini step-by-step near the end of this post.)
Here are some close-ups:
Have stamped Tiny Tags hearts and sentiments. Flower Fusion sentiment on Half & Half die cut. Placed some bling on the buttons, and of course, Stickles :)
More bling and Tiny Tags hearts.
More Flower Fusion and Tag-Its sentiments, bling, Stickled buttons. More Tiny Tags hearts. Have also stamped the "happy" banner from Tag-Its #10 on the tail of the plane of the patterned paper.
And here's the mini tutorial. Since i decided to place a slider impromptu, i really did not go into detailed planning/measurement. I guess i slipped into express-countermeasure mode (sorry, shades of my engineering profession).
i've adhered the stripey paper on top of my "peeking" piece to act as stopper and as paper guide when sliding in/out. This stripey paper should be wider than the "peeking" piece.
2nd (middle) photo: Slip the stripey paper in the slits on either side.
3rd photo: Finished! :) Ok, you've to do some sliding tests first. And tweak if necessary.
I hope the above is clearer than mud. If ever, let it only be a guide, somewhere to start with, because mine doesn't slip back in easily; i've to move it from side to side while slipping it back :) I've made some LOs before with interactive elements where i really measured and made "prototypes" first (ok, i like to see how they work and how they wouldn't work, heehee!) HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.
Thanks so much for spending time with me!
