Welcome to the Everything ABC's Blog Hop!
For this hop we will be featuring the letter F. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment. Whatever the crafter has chosen as their F element will be featured in their post.
If you have just hopped onto my blog, please start at the beginning at Linda's blog ~ Scrappy Therapy
If you came from Judy Faye Garner at Judy Faye's Place, then you're on the right track!
For the letter F, I chose to use Close To My Heart's 6" x 12" Flip Flaps. I came across a version of this on Pinterest, and thought it would be a great way to add more photos plus an interactive element to my layouts! The original post is from Janene Wawro over at Create with Janene.
These pictures were taken by a photographer friend a few years ago. We only had a mini session shoot, but we stayed for about an hour afterwards checking out the location. I had such a great time capturing my family in exploration mode! The more formal portraits are on the front two pages of the layout.

Last November, I was able to capture an adorable picture of my two kids, my niece and nephew stacked in a pile of oldest to youngest. They also posed in a picture with their Great-Aunt. She doesn't have any children of her own, so my children and their cousins are very close to her.
For her birthday, I wanted to create a special keepsake for her including these two pictures. I immediately thought of Close to My Heart's 5" x 7" Hinged Photo Display. There are 7 opening for either pictures or décor elements. I chose to include the two pictures from November as well as one of my two kids and one of my niece and nephew. All pictures were secured into the display tray using Liquid Glass.
For the remaining section, I really wanted to include a paper rose. I have seen lots of people make these, but was very intimidated to try my own! I found a video tutorial by another CTMH Consultant, Cathy Derouche, that gave me great ideas and the confidence I needed to get started. I didn't have all the tools that she uses in her video, but was able to adapt other tools I own to get the job done. I used the CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge to cut the main portion of the rose. As recommended in the video, I cut two flat flower shapes from the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to add a few extra petals to the outside. I love how the rose turned out!
The background paper and the two little strips are all from the Ivy Lane Paper Packet. I added a small sparkle from the clear assortment to the center of the rose, then added a clear sparkle flourish coming out of the bottom right of the rose.
I'd love to help you create your own Hinged Display! I can also put together a kit for purchase if you are interested in creating the display as shown. Contact me for more information.
