Glossy cardstock

Trace Geworsky

I just wanted to share a layout with you, that I made using glossy cardstock, and a clear resist pad.
I stamped my butterfly image onto the glossp paper using the clear resist pad(I stamped it all over the paper)
Then I took the Zing! embossing powder(American Crafts) and randomly sprinkled some over a few of the stamped images.
I didnt use my heat tool to heat emboss it, because I wanted to use the embossing powder more for the raw, glitter look.

Gaffer tape

Trace Geworsky
I wanted to share with you 2, super quick ideas for using gaffer tape on your cards.
Card #1 "Hi"
I cut out the word "hi" from tape and positioned it as the flower centre.
I also used 2 strips as patterned paper, and adhered stars along the strips.
Card #2 "Sweet"
I adhered a strip of gaffer tape along the bottom of the card, layering a patterned paper strip along the top of it.

5 minute mini layout

Trace Geworsky

One of the things I really like about the mini Teresa Collins bind it all papers, is that if You want to make a mini layout that takes less then 5 minutes to create, then these are perfect for that!!
I layered one sheet on the printed sheet to use as a photo mat, trimming the excess from the edge.
i used one jumbo wallet picture, added fake "stitching" around the sides.
I limited the embellishments to one prima flower, some alphas, and one sentence for the journaling.

A challenge for mementos

This week, I challenge you to use non-scrapbooking mementos to accent your layouts. The two layouts above are from a family vacation to Florida. The top layout features the hole-in-one free game token that our son won, along with the score card from our game. The bottom layout features bording passes and the airline logo from the envelope that held our boarding passes.

The slice

by Trace Geworsky

I wanted to show you how versatile the slice design cards really are.
On the layout "Bloom where you are planted" I used the fa la la design card(which is a Christmas themed one) because I liked the tree designs on there, and wanted to prove to myself that those trees could be used for projects other then Christmas projects.
I cut out two, 2'' trees from patterned paper, sanded the edges, and messily outlines around them.
For the title I cut the letters 1 1/2'' and then outlined the letters using stickles.
I also took a thin white piece of paper from My son's paper stash and rolled it through my cuttlebug (using the swiss dots embossing folder)
