look again at your supplies

I love to look at the scrapbooking supplies I already have and use them in a slightly different way.  I actually like to do that with many things besides scrapbook supplies too actually.  I had my Tim Holtz stencils out and I was thinking about the sun burst one and if I could turn it into a rainbow to co ordinate with my Granddaughter’s dress in her Easter photo…. sure enough, it can be done!  I used painters tape across the part of the stencil that I didn’t want to use to block the areas. (you can use regular tape just make sure to stick it to your clothes a few times first to decrease the stickiness, that way it won’t ruin your layout when you take it off)  I used distress ink in the colours of the rainbow.

When I was happy with the rainbow, I added lots of die cuts and used them as a frame and accents for the photo as opposed to a card base as the large frame is intended to be used as. (I believe all of the dies are from Spellbinders that I used and the title was cut with the Silhouette)   The thread I used was from my Mom’s sewing kit from many years ago and the buttons are antique as well.

I like the final layout very much.  I can’t believe how different that stencil looks just by colouring each ray a different colour.

Are you registered?? Will you be coming??

I hope all you pretty ladies will be at the Spring Crop in April because oh my stars and garters, have I got something fun to show you!!

Have you noticed gold foil is EVERYwhere right now??  Well, if there’s a bandwagon in the neighborhood you know I’m going to be jumping on it.  Considering I’m not a fan of anything glittery or shiny, it surprises even me, that I am so felled by gold foil.  Purple and teal foil now?  Nope.  Nada. Hate.  But GOLD.

So here’s a peek at what I’m going to be demo-ing for a Make and Take at the crop!  And let me preface this by apologizing for the weird angles and not great photography.  Foil shine is hard to capture on camera.



What’s even better, is how comically simple this process is!  Print your sentiment with a laser printer and run your paper and foil through a laminator.  Boom.




Gonna also show all y’alls an easy way to foil up die cuts and such like.




This is going to be more fun than should be legal, so I hope to see you all there!!
