Pages in Time Interactive Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Pages in Time Interactive Blog Hop!  We call it an “Interactive Blog Hop” because you do more than read a blog, you actually get to create a layout along the way!  At each stop you will collect steps for completing a layout!

The Interactive Blog Stop starts at the Pages In Time blog with the Pages In Time Weekly Sketch.  From there, you will hop from blog to blog to collect the steps to create your layout!  You should have arrived
here from Anna C.'s Blog.  If you stumbled upon the hop by accident, please play along (just make sure you hit all the blogs)!

The step you are collecting from me is Flowers!! You need to use a flower on your completed layout. This does not have to be the flower from the tutorial you will find below but a flower is required!

Here is my flower tutorial, for those of you that frequent my blog I have posted this tutorial before but have decided to use it for this hop because it is basic enough for anyone of any skill level to be able to complete it, as well as I think they look fantastic... so lets get started!!

To make this flower you are going to need 3 - 6 petal flowers, the ones pictured above were cut with my cricut the size is 1 1/2" (Note: you can make these any size you wish)

Cut the flowers as you see above, 2 petals off of one, 1 petal off of another, and a slit to the center off of the third. 

Then you will glue 2 petals together on the 3 larger pieces you have left (the 6 petal flower will become 5, the 5 petal flower will become 4 and the 4 petal flower will become 3). This is also where I shape my flowers using anything small and round (I usually use my making memories piercing tool), I curl the petals down.

Leaving the larger of the 3 layers whole, snip the bottom off of the two smaller layers. (This allows the flower to fit together better)

Glue the layers together, over lapping the petals when you are finished it should look something like this. 

Take your piece with 2 petals on it and curl the petals the same as you did when you were shaping the main part of the flower, I then roll 3/4 of the piece one way and glue it down then roll the rest the opposite way, when you are finished the top should look something like this.

Take your single petal and curl the petal out then press it into a cone, should look similar to what you see above. 

I then glue that onto the piece you created out of the double petals. 

Again we snip off the bottom to ensure a nice fit. 

I then glue the center into the flower and the finished product looks like this. 

Here is a what my flowers look like on this LO of my niece on here birthday, I also of course used the blog hop sketch!

Here is my completed LO I would tell you the paper line but I am re organizing my craft room at the moment so I can not find anything. 

Here is a close up of the title I stamped the words with little yellow handprints!

A Great shot of my lovely little flowers on this LO, as well as part of my flourish, the rest doesn't seem to show up in pictures but its there!!

here is another one of those flowers just made using an 8 petal flower!

Be certain to write down the steps along the way, because you will need to incorporate them into your layout to be eligible for the overall prize!  Speaking of prizes, take a peak at the grand prize:

To be eligible for the prize you must incorporate the sketch and five additional steps from the hop.  The order of the hop is as follows:

Anna C:
Lili: Blog is on the pages in time site...

Finally, you will need to upload your completed layout at Pages In Time.  If you are not already a member, you will need to become one.  Once you are there, you will find a Forum entitled “June 30 – July 6 Thursday Sketch”.  You will have until midnight on July 6th to upload your layout.  All layouts that are based upon the sketch and have incorporated at least five of the steps from the blog hop will be eligible for the prize.  A winner will be chosen by the Pages In Time Design Team.

You can earn two extra votes!!!  If you follow all the blogs listed in the hop and leave a comment on each blog, you will be eligible for an extra vote.  You can also earn an extra vote if you incorporate the step listed at each stop in your layout.  That means, if you do your layout based on the sketch and include all of the steps, you get an extra vote!

I will also be offering a small RAK from my own stash here, unfortunately I don't have a picture of it ready, but it will include some handmade flowers by me, as well as other goodies, lets see how many of you will enter for a mystery RAK!!

Can't wait for the sun forever... (PIC HEAVY)

So I finished my Curtain-Call mini album a few days ago, but as usual around here I was waiting on the sun in order to photograph it. Well... We don't really know what the sun is around here anymore, and it is suppose to continue to rain until Wednesday, I really want summer.. I gave in a photographed it a crappy way, but I couldn't wait anymore...

Anyway now onto why I am posting this, I made this One Flip - Two Flip mini album with Laura's pattern from Following the Paper Trail, I stared at the directions and red them at least 30 times trying to figure it out, but if you decide to purchase and make one I advise going to watch her recorded Ustream video from her doing it and then it will all make sense, it is super easy once you understand it. This album is LOADED with space for its size, I love this album and am already planning my next one with this design....

My supply list was very simple, I had the Curtain Call line from Graphic 45 , Bazzil Cardstock, liquid glue, glue runner, and random lace, trim, ribbon, and fibers.

Okay because this is so pic heavy, and remember to excuse the quality of photos on this one, I am not going to write under every picture, just look through it and enjoy, it shows the page itself then the next picture is the tag, then the other side of the tags (if there is one) and continues on like that, there are lots of little things in this album, I still can not get over all the room. Hope you all enjoy. Thanks for looking!

I will have another mini for you all to look at very soon from the G45 Once upon a springtime line.
I am also working on my flower tutorial for the blog hop all of us at Pages in Time are hosting.

Happy Crafting!
