may the fourth be with you + a free minc printable

One of my most favorite days of the year! May the 4th! With 3 Star Wars loving males in my home the excitement that comes around each year is contagious. This year in Australia the 4Th of may fell on a public holiday so at my school where I teach we decided to have a fun “May the 4th be with You” dress up day  on the Friday before to create connection between students learning from home and students of essential workers learning at school.  We all dressed up in our favorite Star Wars character and sent photos in to our community Facebook page. I decided to remember this story in my Storyline Chapters notebook that I have been working on to record stories of the Covid 19 virus. I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to my pages so I created this fun printable ( that I am sharing as a FREE downloadable for you too) and foiled it with the gorgeous Gold Star Minc foil. You can find all the supplies needed for this project at JOANN!



I love how the gold stars in the foil adds to the whole Star Wars theme! I printed my printable onto a transparency using my laser printer and then as mentioned ran it through my Minc machine with the Gold Star foil.

I printed a full size photo in black and white and adhered it to my page. I then added some of the Colour Fresh stickers to my photo to create contrast to my black and white photo.

I adhered the transparency to the following page using a thin piece of washi tape.

I love how the transparency  lifts up to reveal more photos underneath.

I trimmed a piece of that water color pattern paper from the Color Fresh 12 x 12 paper pad and adhered it to the right side. I then added my photos in a grid design. I used some of the clear stickers from the Color Fresh sticker pad to create sub titles around my photos and added some of the cardstock stickers to my photos as well.

To complete my spread I stapled one of the Color Fresh tabs to the side of the transparency to show that it can be lifted up!
