Spinning photos...

This layout is a great design if you've got multiple photos along the same theme that don't all need to be seen at once... Fireworks, sea lion show,etc, or of course a trip on the London eye ;) 

Firstly select the photos you wish to use, and decided if you would like to use all landscape or portrait photos, then you can decide on your 12x12 where you wish for the appartures to be cut, select the 
depth of the frame around your photo you wish for and then cut the aperture, of course landscape apertures can go either side of the page with portrait photos being at the top or the bottom. 

Now for making the wheel.. Simply draw around a large dinner plate on cardstock and cut it out, attach your photos equally spread out around the wheel, remembering that the photos need to be stuck on to the wheel in all different directions so as the wheel spins they arrive in the aperture the right way up :) 

Next up cut a small grove in to the top of your page where the point of your wheel will be
(I used the bottom of a cup to Ho get my dip), and cut out.

Now using a brad, pin through the middle of your wheel and then pin through your page lined up so your photos appear in the aperture. I have my wheel slightly off centre here, favouring the right side of the page, also don't forget to make sure even before cutting your aperture in the 12x12 that the wheel will be slightly proud of the top of the page so you can get hold of it to spin it without having to remove the page from your album.

Attach a ribbon across your page.
Now mat and layer two more photos, and foam pad them over lapping each other, and the original photo window. 

I then used blue washi tape to frame around my photo window and one of the layered photos.

The flowers are made using quilling dies from a check 12x12 (only39p!) and added tiny blue buttons to the centres (10p each) 
Ive used my trusted Kaisercraft alphabet stamps for my ''London' title and then heat embossed them 
with silver metallic embossing powder

The backing paper I have used for this project is one of my beloved kaisercraft 12x12's - this time from the key to my heart collection - 'flattered' (in stock now!) 

I hope you like this idea and can hopefully put it to use in your own album :)
