Adventures Photo Box by Marie Browning June 13, 2013


Welcome to the Imaginisce/Tombow “Summer isn’t a Bummer” Blog hop! This is the final day of the hop and we’re so glad you’re with us! This week, Imaginisce and Tombow have teamed up to get you in the summer spirit.  Both design teams are excited to show you just what we have done with the Hot Rocks as well as My Endless Summer and Outdoor Adventure collections from Imaginisce, and Tombow’s Dual Brush Pen Markers and amazing adhesive products. I am the first person on Today’s hop!
IMG_1395For my post I am using the wonderful Outdoor Adventure papers and stickers from Imaginisce along with Tombow’s liquid Glues. I wanted to do something different with the papers and I decided on a photo box to hold photos from family adventure vacations. The papers were perfect for this and there were loads of stickers and die-cuts from the collection to choose from. I choose the papers to cover both the outside and inside of the box and both sides of the lid, trimming each panel  1/4″ smaller. I then used a coordinating acrylic paint and painted every edge on the box and lid. All the panels are attached using Mono Aqua Liquid Glue from Tombow, my go-to glue for paper onto wood. It goes on clear, dries clear with a matte finish and with no wrinkles! It also has the advantage of a brush applicator so no messy brushes or washing up!

IMG_1396I then designed some  ‘title divider ‘ pages to separate the different years and adventures of photos. Each divider was trimmed from the Outdoor Adventures paper to fit into the box. I then decorated the front of each divider with a photo from that year  and stickers from the collection. The photos are attached using Tombow’s Dot Adhesive Stamp Runner. It allows me to use it as a traditional stamp runner around the edges and also ‘stamps’ small squares of adhesive in the middle of the photo. I attached the little date tags at the top using Mono Multi Liquid Glue for a super strong hold for these soon to be tugged on pieces!

IMG_1398On the back side of each title divider page, I added journal tags and die-cuts from the Outdoor Adventure Collection, ready to add the details. Again, the Dot Adhesive Stamp Runner was used to secure everything down.

IMG_1399Here’s a peek of the finished box loaded with photographs from past adventures, with room for lots more! A great idea for those of us who have not printed out all our favorite photographs – now we have a place to put them!
