This month, I'm geeking out with pages from my Doctor Who mini album. For my first page (actually a two-page spread), I upcycled some clear plastic packaging to make a pocket for my Dr. Who bookmark, a trading card, and some festive confetti. Below you can see the bookmark (a reading tally that I've had for a very long time) and some of the confetti.

Next up is a page that houses a 1980's Dr. Who Fan Club of America membership pin. :)
|Project 2: journal page & die cuts from October Afternoon; chalkboard & floral papers from My Mind's Eye; tape from 3M/Scotch; pen from Ranger.|
|Project 2 detail: the pin changes color like a mood ring!|
My third mini album page has a solemn tone.
|Project 3 detail: I used a half-dollar coin to represent President Kennedy.|
Next up, I have three 12x12" scrapbook pages that use nearly 100% October Afternoon products.
|Project 4: stickers & patterned paper from October Afternoon; cardstock from Wausau Paper; chalk from Stampin' Up; wire from Artistic Wire; paper clips.|
|Project 5: previously blogged here.|
|Project 6: previously blogged here.|
For the following two layouts, I found ways to use up scraps of October Afternoon products by placing them against background paper from other manufacturers.
|Project 7: previously blogged here. Background paper is from Bella Blvd.|
For my final two projects, I reused the negative pieces from October Afternoon "Mini Market" stickers in interesting ways.
|Project 9: previously blogged here.|
For the layout above, I tucked pieces of the sticker negatives amongst the layers. For a rustic feel, I randomly bent and cut the sticker pieces.
|Project 10: previously blogged here.|
For my tenth (and last) project, I used the sticker negatives as a mask with Liquid Pearls paint.
Thanks for sticking with me through this long post! Before I sign off, I just want to remind you about the Scrap for Help challenge for this month. The T(ea) is for Tuesday crew, in particular, may be interested in this one: the challenge is to use upcycled bottle caps (perhaps from a bottle of iced tea, LOL?) in a project. You can make anything--a card, altered art, a journal page, or, of course, a scrapbook layout. For inspiration/ideas, see here and here.
Take care and enjoy your week!
