Hello We R fans! It’s your blog hostess, Aly Dosdall again. When planning photo display projects sometimes it’s fun to think outside the box a bit. For example consider die cutting your photos into shapes rather than using traditional rectangles like I did with my Summer Snapshots Photo Display. With my Evolution Advanced and the Hexagon Nesting Dies it was easy to give this framed photo display a unique look.
Summer is such a fun and memorable time for our family, so I wanted to create something to display our favorite photos from last summer. Photo tip: I converted all of my photos to black and white and then printed them since all of my photos were from different moments during the summer and I wanted my project to have a cohesive feel. After printing my photos I selected three of the smallest dies from the Hexagon Nesting Dies set. I used the larger one to cut my photos, then skipped a size and used the smaller two to cut my patterned paper and journaling cards.
I placed my photo on my Evolution Magnetic Mat B and then my die upside down on top. Then I ran it through my Evolution Advanced, and repeated this step for all my photos and papers.
I then used a staple gun to attach three lengths of baker’s twine to my frame. Next I cut a matching back for each photo and paper out of white cardstock, covered it with adhesive, and attached my photos and papers to the twine by sandwiching it between the photo/paper and its backing.
To finish off my project I added some stickers to my photos and papers from the fun summer-themed Citrus Bliss collection from our sister company, Pink Paislee. I love how the unique die cut shape of the photos and papers looks for this photo display. And I love how easy it was to make using my Evolution Advanced! If you love to create projects with your Evolution Advanced, we’d love to see them on our Facebook page.
