Scrapbooking: Cardiff (Dr Who)

There's something rather exciting when you get a shot of inspiration and you sit down to get started. Its also rather relaxing to get a pair of scissors out, guillotine and start working on a new paper piecing project. I had this spark of creativity while looking through photos to see what could meet Shimelles 9th challenge, Fancy Cutting.
Theres certainly plenty of cutting here....
I used a small star stamp as a border punch, and also cut around photos of the displays to use (my fav Dr Who baddies are the weeping angels). Of course the most time consuming part of this page, and my favourite part of it is the TARDIS. It is all handcut by scissors or guillotine. A labour of love made mainly out of a single sheet of 12x12 blue card that has been inked to add shadow & make it look older/worn. The "police telephone" sign was printed as was the sign at the top. The windows are strips of blue card over inked up vellum, which is place over peachy-yellow to give it the illusion of a light being on inside, I used this same technique with the light at the top except, as this is much brighter, I didnt ink it.

Ruth brought along some glittery 12x12 sheets the the bloggers weekend in May for a challenge, I kept mine untouched as I wanted to use it on my Dr Who layout with the thought of a starry universe, which fits in perfectly with Shimelles 11th challenge, make it sparkle. I couldnt just stop with a bit of glittery blue paper though, oh no, this person who oh so rarely uses glittery products went on to use a sheet of black glitter card, silver glitter card to mount half the photos on AND a glittery chipboard title!
Other features of interest on the page (apart from the photos) are...

The wrist band I wore to get in the exhibition multiple times, and...
A Doctor Who stamp I received on a package that I felt was very in keeping.


  1. wow!! that Tardis is amazing I cannot believe you hand cut it all it must have taken ages! Wow and the glittery effect looks fab! I am actually watching Dr Who right now!!

  2. Siobhan says your TARDIS is awesome. I'm still deciding how to tackle my sparkly Doctor Who double pager - too many photos to choose from.
