The thin cardboard discs holding images that depict the scenes of our favorite characters have not only won a place in our hearts, but have snuck into our scrapbook layouts as well. This favorite childhood toy was an instrument in storytelling; now it's an aid in telling our own stories as we use it in our pages and projects. We couldn't leave it out of our Focus on Photos series this month!
Master View by Nancy Damiano
Nancy has used a large-scale View-master reel to hold photos that help tell the story of her family in 2011. One perk of a digital cut file is that you're able to scale it to the size that works for your project.
Happy Hour by Kasia Tomaszewska
Kasia leaves the windows open to her viewmaster reel. By cutting it with a specialty glitter paper, the die cut is a strong accent piece all on its own.
Toy Time by Marcy Penner
Marcy pulls from this icon's original roots to contribute to the toy theme of her page.
Loud & Clear by Jossiah
Jossiah tucks two of the circular elements behind her photo mat; their shapes help pull your eye in to the focus of the page - the photo.
Life is Good card by Julie Campbell
A reel makes a playful and unexpected card design like the one Julie demonstrates on video here.
My Viewmaster Life by lynniemariepea
Lynnmarie reflects on her childhood, journaling how this toy made it possible for her to go exciting places and see new things. She's used an actual vintage View-master reel to embellish her page.
SK&B by Kinsey Wilson
And finally, here is one more way we see this icon used as a photo frame. Kinsey describes this layout as the most closely inspected layout she's ever done. We love how her journaling and title are placed in the center!
