Once they're stuck to the tape I lift it off and put my glue in tiny dots on my letters.
I then take the tape and place the letters where I want them and gently peel the tape away as I hold by letters down exactly where I want them.
Then I do the next lines and Walla! The letters are all placed exactly where I want them!
Because I'm frugal I save my tape strips and use them over again, I just stick the strip to something in my work area.

four or five times with water. The final step is to lightly iron your
paper with a warm iron. This helps smooth out the wrinkles and
dries the water on your paper. You did it! Now you can go add
your amazing design to your layout or card!

For this weeks Watch For It Wednesdays Post, I’m going to share a tip on RECYCLING WHILE SCRAPBOOKING. Whilst most of us are trying to watch our wallets and stick to a strict budget, we don’t want to or should have to put away our craft projects just because we are a bit short on $$$$$ to buy that perfect embellishment.
When I did this layout of my son wearing his Favourite ‘Party’ outfit, I knew that he was never going to wear it again and Because I don’t want hundreds of my children’s old “Favourites” lying around the house long after the kids have outgrown them, I decided to make a true size colour photocopy of part of the outfit and use it in my layout. I then cut off the tags, labels, ribbons and buttons and attached them to the layout to give it a more textured 3 dimensional look. There you have it!!!! The perfect embellishments that also have a sentimental meaning and cost you nothing. Just imagine how many more CottageCutz & Quickutz dies you could buy from THE SCRAPPING COTTAGE if you don’t have to spend all your well deserved craft money on little embellishments that can be very costly.

This week I decided to make a Wedding Card using the QUICKUTZ MAY RELEASE REVOLUTION WEDDING CAKE die REV-0201-S. I chose this gorgeous cake die because it reminded me so much of my own wedding cake and I wanted to decorate it very simular – although mine did not have mice on top. Mine had a gorgeous cluster of roses.
I topped the cake with the mice from the QUICKUTZ EXCLUSIVE PRINCESS CARRIAGE DIE and used the bodies from the QUICKUTZ 2x2 BRIDE & GROOM DIE KS-0454. I inked the cake with TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS INKS and then made little flowers to decorate the cake using the little flower from the QUICKUTZ SWIMSUIT & HAT DIE KS-0569 and the tiny little leaves are from the QUICKUTZ TOPIARY DIE. In the centres of the flowers I have added little KAISERCRAFT RHINESTONES, which are so easy to attach because they are self adhesive and ready to stick.

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us, or we find it not.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
I made this fun little book as a gift for my children. I want them
to know how precious they are and how much they are loved!
I LOVE ink!! I was excited to use many different colors of
Tim Holtz Distress Ink to highlight the edges and create an
overall "Distressed" look for this book. The Scrapping Cottage
has an incredible collection of this famous ink! It is my
favorite ink of all time...I think I have one of each color! :O)
I delicately sprinkled a few QuicKutz dies throughout, as well.
See if you can spot them! Almost all of the die I used are
on sale at The Scrapping Cottage for $2.95!! Yes, $2.95!!
That is the best deal on the planet!!
QuicKutz Oval Clip, Tab Die Set, Tags (1 retired but available and
one that is $2.95!), daisies and many more to suit your fancy!
