BFF Altered Book/Mini Album #8

Woo Hoo!!!

We're almost finished with our BFF Altered Book/Mini Album Challenge!!!

Today we're up to #8

The sentiment for today is...

8. When you fall, I'll pick you up and dust you off - - after I laugh my rear off!!


The Challenge for today is....

Use at least 3 different stamps


3 colors of ink ~ Not including Black!!

How's that for a challenge!

Do you think you're up for it?

Well here is my finished pages....

I started by stamping a variety of images...a ruler and mini tickets (both Tim Holtz) using black ink and dots (Queen Kat Designs) with Barn Door Distress Ink. (that's 3 stamps and one ink color for those keeping count!)

Next I inked up the images as follows:

Ruler - Wild Honey & Vintage Photo

Tickets - Stormy Sky, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Victorian Velvet

Dots - Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Mustard Seed

BFF 8 003

Mounted the paper on my beer coasters then edged each page with Vintage Photo.

After I added the photo I stamped a flourish (Fancy Pants) using Forest Moss.

BFF 8 005

BFF 8 007

BFF 8 006

That's 4 stamps total and way more than 3 colors :)

So there you go!

Only 2 more challenges left


our Altered BFF Books will be a book - LOL!!


  1. This is my fave page so far! I love all the colors!! I hope to play catch up on Sunday as Id gotten 3 weeks before because I wanted to paint my kitchen LOL
    How did you get all the tickets in different colors? I assumed you used the ink blending tool but when I start blending int he middle of a page I always get a really dark starting line from setting it down...help lol
    Thanks for another beautiful page!

  2. Hi Roni -

    While I loved all the pages, I think this one is my favorite! The colors are fantstic (hey rules were made to be broken, be a rebel - LOL)! The flourish on the photo page reminds me of the grass that grows on the dunes. Fantastic pages!!!
