Fun Friday with Pam

Live Life in Color!! Have you seen these Bo Bunny papers? They are so pretty and detailed. Just perfect for this up-cycle project.
Okay, so this is a very large frame do over.
 Above is how it started, not ugly, but not very personal
Each square is approximately 6x6 inches.  They are popped up about one inch from the background and have an overall wave cut to them. If you find a frame to re do, in order to give it some tooth, first sand then go 
 over the pattern with a heavy gesso.
Allowed this to dry over night.  

I dug through the photo stacks till I found a nice selection to use. They had to be small to fit in the frames sheet from this Bo Bunny paper pack. I snipped, and clipped and fussy cut till I could mount them to a frame. NOTE: Cut the lower inside edge of the frames and slip your trimmed photo up from underneath. I also played around with and re printed a few in Cyan with a brick overlay effect for the photos I wanted to appear receding.
 This is a sun hand made gem from my sweet grandchildren. I mounted it over the 'Live Life in COLOR' logo from the border of a sheet.
Here are some of the close up shots.

Cut the frames apart and reassemble by stacking.
I may add a few more photos over time, as well as more bits and bobs from the stash. The frame below has pop up elements as well as actual key staples and fabric to mimic the paper pattern in the top left hand corner.  
Thanks Pinterest and 'aunty acid'!

Lavendar Haze Kit Blitz 4

The layouts for 'Lavendar Haze' June kit
 This Kaisercraft paper is so beautiful and versatile. I used it for summer photos and 3-D projects. However, it would be a perfect young child or baby set with the muted tones. The sticker sheet has amazing crisp cut edges, very little to no extra background color border. I LIKE that too!
 Get one before they are all gone!
I loved the wistful feeling of this photograph. I wanted to include the other photo, but didn't want it to compete with the main photo. I stacked them so the background was extended. Then made a simple flip forward photo. To do this use the ribbons to act as the pivot point for the flip, reinforce the fold with a piece of border trim. Then add a journal card to the larger postcard sheet to cover the back of the top photo.
 These layouts for my sweet granddaughter are flat. Not my usual look. I am thinking she might appreciate some simple layouts in her books! Love this child!

I used the heart emboss vellum sheet to soften the background matting. Then stacked a row of buttons along the center point.
The waves are cut with a die from the stash. I kept the background purposely uncluttered. Mainly because I wanted the focus to be on the fun the kids are having with Dad. I added minimal journaling along the waves. The photos don't need explaining. They will remember these hot lazy summer days always.
The water photos had odd heads of background people in them. So, I snipped and clipped till the focus came back to Dad and the kids. Although this is a double layout, they can easily be split into two to go in each child's album. The current tittle is chipboard laser cut from the kit, emboss with blue enamel with gold flecks embossing powder.
I always try to take the flower photos. These grow along the front deck. I am not an expert photographer. But, I found a fun way to incorporate several pictures into this LO. I snipped and clipped then layered with pop-dots under to give them a 3-D look. I did the same for the Poppies!
Most of the peonies originally were around the farmhouse where I grew up
