Scrap It Friday is here again!
Go on a cruise this summer? Or planning on going on over Thanksgiving or Christmas break? Here is a great title page I made a few years ago. It’s from a cruise my family and I went on back in 2008. This title page is one of my favorite, out of the ones I have actually made over the years. It’s simply named “Captured Memories.”
Things You’ll Need:
- 5 by 7 Photo
- Cricut Machine (at the time, I used my Expression)
- Cricut Mat
- Paper Cutter
- Bright Pink and Bluish Cardstock (2 each)
- Black Cardstock
- White Cardstock
- Piece of Velum
- Eyelet setter (I like the Crocodile and have been using it for years)
- Black Eyelets
- Blue Glitter Brads
- Xyron Sticker Maker
- Paper Piercer
- Versa Mark Ink Pad
- Pearlescent Chalks (Shimmers) by Pebbles Inc.
- Small Recording Box
- Xacto Knife
- White String
- Bluish Curvy Ribbon
I chose the bright color because I love bright things and it just so happened it also match my swimsuit coverup. To start, I cut a piece of the bright blue cardstock to 3 by 12 inches and then cut a 5.5 by 7.5. I also cut two more pieces out with the bright blue cardstock, one 4 by 5 and the other 4.25 by 4 inches. Next, I then cut a piece of the bright pink 3.5 by 4 and another piece 3.25 by 6.5. I also cut a piece of the white cardstock about 3.5 by 2.25.
Once I cut all that out, I then used my Cricut Expression to cut out my title “Captured Memories: Ecstasy Carnival Nov 2008.” If I remember right, the “Memories” is cut in a 2 inch letter size in Black Cardstock while the “Captured,” “Ecstasy Carnival,” (in Black Cardstock) and “Nov 2008,” (in White Cardstock) are cut in a 1 inch letter size. I then cut out a ‘sand dollar,’ pair of ‘flip flops,’ and an ‘anchor;’ about 1 inch each.
After I cut everything out, I used the bright blue 5.5 by 7.5 to back my 5 by 7 photo and used the bright blue 2.5 by 12 to place at the top of the page using a couple of eyelets at each of the top corners to add a little something more and added a piece of the blue wavy ribbon at the seam of the two colors. Then attached the “Captured Memories” letters to it, and then placed the 4 by 5 bright blue in the right hand corner after using the Versa Mark ink pad to stamp that says “When an original is always hard to find, it is easy to recognize ⋅ One of a Kind ⋅ Original ⋅ Priceless ⋅ Unique ⋅ One of a Kind ⋅ Original.”
I used my Pearlescent Chalks to ‘color’ the words in different colors. As you can see, in the middle I used a ‘cruise ship’ dimensional sticker and a couple small pieces of a bluish ribbon to use as waves. I also used the Vera Mark ink pad and chalks to ‘color’ the ‘flip flops,’ ‘anchor,’ and ‘sand dollar.’ Instead of using adhesive of any kind to attach to the main cardstock, I used my crocodile to put some black eyelets at each corner so it could be made into a pocket for my journaling.
Before wrapping the recording box in the bright pink cardstock I cut 3.25 by 6, I went to You Tube to find the horn going off specifically on the Ecstasy Carnival. I attached the ‘flip flips and ‘anchor’ with my blue glitter brads, added some white string using my paper piercer to make the holes on each side of the bright pink cardstock, and then wrapped it around the recording box attaching it really well with some glue dots. Then I used my crocodile to punch a hole where the button is to make the recording box sound, which you can click here to hear.
**Sorry the audio is so bad. I think the batteries are bout to die unfortunately; but you get the idea..**
As best as I could at the time, I centered the letters I cut out on the Cricut Expression “Ecstasy Carnival” (flip-flopping the words on purpose) and “Nov 2008” on the side of the photo between the top and bottom bright blue cardstock.
Using a computer and printer, I typed up what was going on in the photo and printed it out on the white cardstock cut to about 3.5 by 2.25. Then I attached it to be centered on my bright pink cardstock cut to the size 3.5 by 4; which was then attached to the bright blue cut to the size 4.25 by 4. I used the ‘sand dollar’ and attached it to the bright blue cardstock under the bright pink to make it as a tab to be able to pull out of the ‘pocket’ I made as explained above in a previous step.
After place my title page into the page protector I was going to keep it in, I used my xacto knife to make a slit where my journaling box could easily be pulled out to read.
And that’s it! It’s a semi-difficult title page to do but I just love it! Hope you do too!
