CraftyKT is sponsoring a Kool Tak Manufacturer Challenge, the Fabulously Fall Blog Hop. Kool Tak has some wonderful products (I especially love the Super Tacky Tape!). I also received the Layer Perfect tool, Kool Tak Shiny Transfer Foil Sheets, Clear Foam Tape and Clear Adhesive Foam pads.
We have a blog hop going. Yep, that's right. Just click on the Designer Craft Connection button at left to hop forward or backward and see some other projects made with these great tools by eleven more CHA designers.
I had lots of ideas for my first post on this subject, but decided to start with a nice simple scrapbook page about Jim and Mildred Wilson, my maternal grandparents. I took a little artistic license with the Fall theme, but after all, brown, orange, peach and black are fall colors.
What's that? What do you mean there's no journaling? Of course there is. I tucked it into a pocket on the back because I just had too much to say about this wonderful couple. It leaves my layout nice and clean but still holds information about their wonderful love story. — and doesn't show off my chicken-scratch (as my granny would say) handwriting.
Here's how I did it:
|1. I started with these three layers. The photo is approximately 4 1/2" x 5 1/2", the peach layer 4 3/4" x 5 3/4" and the brown layer 5 1/8" x 6 1/8". All edges were sponged with Colorbox Chestnut Roan Chalk Ink.|
|3. Adding the third layer is a snap!|
|4. Once the third layer was aligned, I used this fabulously strong Super Tacky Tape to adhere it.|
6. I wanted a larger margin on the 8" x 8" layer, so my measurement is 3/8" on each side. I added the rose paper and only applied the Super Tacky Tape to the edges, leaving the center loose so that I could slide the photo in under the flowers. I used the Super Tacky Tape to adhere it.
At this point, I used Colorbox Chestnut Roan Chalk ink on all the flowers, cut edges and page edges, then wiped the flowers with a paper towel to remove excess ink and highlight the flowers.
I know this has been a long post, but I wanted to go into detail to show how easy it is to create beautiful projects using these wonderful tools.
