Welcome to Day 1 of the All About the 70's Blog Hop! I was so excited for this hop because I grew up in the 70's!
If you found me first, please go to Lynda's BLOG to begin the hop.
For my project today I created a 2 page layout.
I started with one piece of paper that I found at Michaels and I cut it into two pieces. I originally was going to mount the two pieces onto these light blue cardstock papers, but then I noticed the ipod....
I trimmed off the ipod and skull (not a big skull fan) so it all worked out.
I used my Gypsy to create and size my title. I used the font from Feeling Groovy sized to 1.42 inches.
I grabbed the heart from Cricut Stencil and sized it to 4.52 inches. I copied another heart and sized it to 2.45 inches. I used Hide Contour to hide the inside cuts. Then I grabbed 70s from Cindy Lou and placed them inside the heart (sized at 1 inch). I did NOT weld, just grouped them so the numbers would cut out.
I cut the images out of red cardstock.
I wanted to fill in the "V" so I cut two more by opening a new Layer and copying one on it. I hid all of the other cuts then copied it again. I cut out the "V"s in orange and yellow.
I adhered the orange one inside the heart, and trimmed (by hand ~ almost forgot how) about 1/8" off and adhered it on top of the orange one.
I did not want too much color as the patterned paper is pretty busy!
Here is a close up of the heart!
Here is the first page ~ Aren't I cute? It is hard to see, but in the center photo if you zoom in you can see that I knocked out one of my front teeth!
I stitched along the bottom of the papers using my We Are Memory Keepers Sew Easy piercing tool and yellow DMC floss. I always think of my jeans with the rainbow stitched up one leg and down the other when I think of my childhood!!
I took the 70s from the inside of the small heart and adhered them onto this page. I outlined them in black with my fine point sharpie so they did not get lost in the background.
I added some pictures from summer time along with my dad's boat. I have a ton of great lake memories from the 70s!
I had a great childhood, so I really liked the 70's. What I did not really like was the clothing styles and the music!!
Your next stop in the hop is JANET!
