Hi! I’m Samantha Star and this is watch mojo. Today we’re going to be matting our photos with two different color cardstocks and were going to be using a pattern paper for our base and another cardstocks to enhance a page.
So the first step is going to be cutting our cardstock down to size for our photo mats because were working with two photos. We’re going to need two pieces of paper that are four in a quarter, six in a quarter. We are going to double matte our photos meaning that we are going to put two frames around them. So we’re going to cut our second color, in this case black. It’s a 4½ 6½ so now what you have to start doing is gluing your pictures down to your mattes and then gluing back down on to the second color.
So what we’re going to do next is cut the black for our title two and a 2½x11 and then I’m going to glue down my title block near the top of the page. A good trick is to use an ink cube and run it along the edge of your card stock. Something new that I’ll be showing you today our eyelet, you do need special tools to set this. I prefer to use the whole punch a setter to it. Then you want to position the whole punch where you want your eyelet to be and then what you do with a hammer is you give it a couple of whacks and that makes the hole in the page. Take your eyelet ands slip it through. Turn the page over and on the backsides you’re going to have the little end of the eyelets to catch. They need to take the tip of your eyelet setting tool and insert in that little end that sticking outs and hit the hammer again and that sets.
So we’re going to put one of this on each end of a piece of cardstock. So now that we’ve got our title block then, what we’re going to do is we’re going to glue our pictures down on to the page. Now we’re going to be using this pre-cut title and in order to make it just a little bit more interesting I thought that we put some 3D adhesive underneath what we call pop knots which are basically little foam squares and a little bit of thickness to them.
For the last step, what we’ll do is we’re going to add a couple of pieces of cardstock down here so that’s we can write in the names of the people on the photos. I think we’re going to use pieces that are a 1x 4½. Our last step is going to be inserting the brads onto the page. So you just want to stamp that right through there and that makes a hole for you to insert your brad easily. So it comes out the backside and then what you want to do is you just want to turn it over and open it up.
So now we’ve completed our page. The only thing left to do with is to add some text into our textboxes below. So now, you’ve seen some more tools and embellishments that you can use on your pages so you can imagine all the possibilities that are available to you in the world of scrap booking.
