Back to the Grind


Welp, our long weekend at Aunt Amber's is over. Why does it go so fast???

We had so much fun! Anyone else a day behind? I can't seem to get it straight. I did some cleaning today and was so excited that I cleaned on a Monday. OOPS! Well, still impressive for me on a Tuesday ;)


I wanted to share a tutorial with you that I created for the Scrapdango newsletter. You know me and my wax paper! It seriously is a staple in my scrapbooking arsenal of tools. I use it for so many things, especially for my Cuttlebug.


So..what do you need?
Alpha stickers
Wax Paper
Embossing machine & folder

Place the letters you want to use in your title on the wax paper....



And run it through your embossing machine....


And here is the layout,. I used lots of Studio Calico goodies and how much do you love this color combo????? I was inspired by one of their challenges over NSD.
It was perfect for these Easter photos.

Have a great week!

I do this too, but instead of the wax paper, I just neautalize the adhesive off the stickers with baby powder and then adhere the stickers to my project with dimensional adhesive. This is a great tip though if you want to keep them sticky!

Fun page... Henry looks so grown up!

Glad you had a great weekend even if it went by quickly!

This is a really great tip for the title. I like to paint and glitter my my letters as well. I think the cuttlebug folder idea would add even more character. I will have to try this next time.
