I hope you aren’t getting sick of the scrapbook layouts.  I guess I saved them all up to show at one time.  This next one is a layout that I made this month.  After I made the clock card using the Sense of Time stamp set and the Faux Mother of Pearl technique I decided I wanted to use that on a scrapbook page too.  So that is what I did.  The actual layout idea was from my friend Wendy Randall.  She is so talented when it comes to scrapbook layouts.  I often go back through the ones I have from her and use the layout again for a completely different idea – changing colors, stamps, and themes.    The title I used on this layout is TIME TOGETHER –

As is typical – I don’t have any pictures on this one yet.  Looking at it later there is one thing I am changing – and that is the “TIME” on the left page is too light – it is in Crumb Cake – so I’m planning to switch it to be the Soft Suede card stock.  There are several Last Chance List items on this layout – Sense of Time stamp set, Define Your Life stamp set, Elegant Soriee Designer Series paper, and the Cogs Punch.

The base is Crumb Cake and there is a strip of Baja Breeze.  I stamped the gears from the Sense of Time stamp set randomly around the corners.  The strips of DSP are cut and then torn at the bottom and arranged at different angles on the page. And tacked down with a brad at the torn end on the bottom.

The clock face is the Faux Mother of Pearl technique – you can see how to do this by going to my card post from a few days ago – click here .

The large circle and the cogs are cut from Soft Suede card stock.  There is also an antique brad in the center of the clock.

The right hand page is pretty much the same.  The circle has the rest of the title cut with the Big Shot and the Billboard Sizzlit Strip die.  The circle is tied with some Very Vanilla seam binding and Linen Thread.

From the Define Your Life stamp set I used the definition for the word “Together” punched with the Decorative Label punch.

I like the Faux Mother of Pearl technique and just finished 105 3×3 swaps for convention!  I used that technique and one of the new In-Colors called Pool Party and a new stamp set from the catalog.  Next week I’ll show you some sneak peeks and the new In-Colors.  Thanks for stopping by today.
