As I was making this layout today
I was thinking that I should share a couple of tips with you
So I will :)
And hope you might learn something new
Or be reminded of a technique that you haven’t used in a while
Or none of the above but your happy to amuse me and read along lol
The layout :)
and the journaling
Ok now on to some tippy tip tips
see the heart??
It is an epoxy sticker
Instead of sticking it to my page I stuck pattern paper on the sticky bottom (insert giggle at sticky bottom)
I then cut off the excess paper
Used a nail emery board to sand back to the edge
Inked around the edge
added the heart pin
and there you go.. almost like new for old or something :)
Here is another one I made
But I cut this sucker in half, as I do :)
And see the pink pattern paper on top?
Was actually a paper pocket that I cut up
And the white doily/pink paper?
Was also a pocket/envelope
The bit seen below was the flap
and the little purple “happy”??
Also cut from one of those them there pockets :)
Love making something into something else
Love making things S..T..R..E..T..C..H!
Look at products and see them in a different way
Give them new life :)
All the papers, epoxy stickers etc are Grace Taylor products
See the tag below?
It’s a sticker :)
Another quick tip…
When you use dymo tape add some double sided tape to stick it down
Why would you do that when the dymo tape is adhesive I hear you ask
Well you are right it is
The tape doesn’t stay sticky for long and because it is stored in a spiral it usually lifts from the page
So to stop all that happening a little piece of double sided tape goes a long way to making life a :) one :)
Ok that’s all
As you were lol
