Angry Birds Meet the Space Needle

Thursday, November 15, 2012

Yes, you read that correctly. Only in Seattle would you find an Angry Bird being shot off the Space Needle to promote the release of Angry Birds Space.  No, I am not living in the past, but I did just do a page documenting this!

You see, after we went to the Space Needle to see the Bird, I of course bought some themed paper.  This paper came complete with the Space Needle and the word "Seattle" on it.  Uh Huh, I hate it when I do that.  I have no idea how to use pre embellished paper so why did I buy it????  Thankfully for me, the latest *thought* at Thinking*Through*Design is using pre-embellished papers.  

I used a technique I learned about pre-embellished paper. Cut out some of the elements, add some pop-dot adhesive, and place them in the same place they were cut from.  It adds dimension and interest to an otherwise flat page.

I hesitated using these photos and paper together at all.  The sky in my photos is the same color as the paper.  I matted them on white card stock to make them stand out. I didn't want to take away from the photos or paper, so there really wasnt much else to do but add a title and journaling.   I found the logo and font on the internet, printed it and cut it out.  I decided to journal around the edge of the paper to frame the page.  I used a green pen to highlight the logo title.

So It wasn't as complicated as I made it out in my head.  I need to look at pre-embellished paper as less decision making, and therefore faster pages for me!

I hope you will join us over at Thinking*Through*Design!


  1. LOVE how you cut out the space needle and the white border was just what it needed :)

  2. What an awesome event! Made me laugh.

  3. This is such a fabulous page, Devra! The choices you made with the white framed photos and the journaling around the edge are perfect!

  4. What a great and fun layout! I agree with Steffanie. The white boarder around the pictures is a nice idea. It really makes your pictures stand out without interfering with your PP.
    I'm sure all those that play Angry Birds Space will see the humor in this too!
