Hi everyone, yesterday I shared this layout on Scraptastic Club's blog and today I thought I'd share it here too. It's a layout created with the amazing “I Am” collection from Simple Stories! As soon as I saw this collection pop up in the Scraptastic Club Store I ordered it! I’ve always loved Simple Stories, but this collection is definitely one of my favorites.
Here’s the layout I created: a photo of me with two friends enjoying a day out! We were with a group of 7 women and we had hired these scooters (one for each of us) for the day. We had such an amazing time!!
I always love to include chipboard elements on my page (like the banner), but what I don’t always like is the adhesive on the back. More often than not I want to use foam adhesive to adhere chipboard (or stickers) and that is hard when there’s already sticky. So what I do is, I just peel of the layer with the adhesive like this:
And add foam adhesive:
And then I can adhere them in the way I want:
And the same goes for stickers. When I’ve got stickers I want to adhere with foam I make them “unsticky” by sticking and unsticking them a couple of times to my jeans. Because of the fibers that will stick to the sticker they won’t be sticky any more after that:
A simple trick to be able to adhere my stickers like this:with a bit of depth instead of flat.
Here are a few more close-ups of my layout. Love the gold in this collection:
and aren’t these golden overlays awesome:
