Life Loves Album Part 3

Hi all!

Wow, this album sure is going to have a lot of videos! I hope you enjoy watching the interior pages come to life as my videos are posted. This one features my husband Greg and I, complete with some awesome Basic Grey paper and elements :). Since my album is chipboard, I love keeping these layouts 3-dimensional, as you can see in the video with the letters, grungeboard and flower embellisments. I've listed the items I used below - head on over to to get some Basic Grey and Claudine Hellmuth products for your own projects!

7 gypsies bookboard (12 x 12)
Basic Grey Kaleidoscope paper (Junebug collection)
Basic Grey designer cardstock
Basic Grey Olio rub-ons (Junebug collection)
Basic Grey Chipboard letter stickers (Junebug collection)
2" round circle punch
1.5" square punch
Tim Holtz square grungeboard
Tim Holtz distress ink (Fired brick, vintage photo, dusty concord, broken china)
Tim Holtz blending tool
Foam dots

I hope you enjoy the video! Thanks for watching, and as always, I love to hear your thoughts or comments :).

  1. These videos are just fascinating. Thank you so much!

    I have a silly question: the running time of this one for example is about 9 minutes. But you've speeded up portions and skipped parts. How long did it actually take to make this lovely page?

    I've learned a lot about inking edges and blending colors watching you :-D

  2. Thank you Eileen! The actual time to make the page was around 40-60 minutes. It takes me about 15 minutes to come up with a layout idea, and then the rest comes from that starting point. I haven't cut out any important details, just more of the same of me cutting, inking and painting away! :)

    Part 4 should be up next week, thanks for the comment!

  3. gr8 stuff - love those massive punches!! ;]
