 *** 70'S HOP DAY ONE (January 15):
70'S HOP DAY TWO (January 16):

For my project today, I created a layout about a Time Capsule our class buried in 2nd Grade.  We dug it up  in 6th grade.  I only wish I remembered some of the things we put in it!!!

I wanted a brick background and remembered that the Batman cartridge had one.  I cut out the shadow and  the layer at 8.70 inches.

The bricks in the background of my photo were darker so I grabbed my inks.

I used Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo to darken up the brick and give some dimension.

I found this jar from Doodle Charms and sized it to 7.71 inches.  I hid the inside cuts with Hide Contour and copied and pasted a second jar and hid everything except the highlight detail.  I cut both out of vellum.

I made one more copy and moved it off the mat for the jar lid.  I cut this out of white cardstock to match the  jars in the photo.

I used Hello Kitty Font Shadow letters for my title.  I sized them at 1.12 inches.

I cut out the letters in black cardstock and saved the negative piece to use as a template.  I ran the letters through my Xyron.

I adhered the letters using the template as my guide.

I peeled off the template and my title was perfectly lined up!

I journaled on my jar lid after I inked the edges.

There is a huge macreme wall hanging in the background and I just had to add some twine to tie that in (no pun intended).  If my memory returns of the items we put in our jar, I will add those.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Your next stop in the hop is Rachel.

Oh I love this. We did a time capsule when I was in school too. Fun times. I don't remember what I put in there either. Wonder if the kids from the school ever went and dug those items up.
