It's Monday again....that means a little fun with The Mad Scrapper!
How in the world do I follow such an amazing scrapping high with last week's CHA previews??? There's really nothing more fun than laying your eyes on some new scrapbooking goodies for the very first time... is there?
Well.... unless of course you're PLAYING with some of those new goodies!
As if the new Noteworthy Journaling books that come with each of the new lines aren't fun enough.... each one also includes a super cute transparency for the cover! I LOVE these and want to show you a few ways to incorporate them into your projects.
This Royal goodness is Cambridge. I placed the transparency right over the top of the photo (that's my Dad!) in this layout. I turned it sideways actually and then weaved some hemp through the holes to attach it to a journaling sheet from the same Cambridge Noteworthy book. I used Tombow adhesive behind the wings then also added some staples in the top left corner to secure it. This technique adds a lot to the photo and gives a similar effect as a large rub-on. FUN!!!
Next is my FAVORITE way to use these transparencies!! They are a PERFECT size to use on cards! I cut the upper right side of this one out to create a clear pocket to add some Halloween candy. Then I secured it with a zig-zag stitch using my sewing machine... added the ribbon and stickers... DONE and FUN!!! By the way.... it's my personal opinion that WHOO-LIGANS is seriously THE CUTEST Halloween line of ALL TIME!!! Hee! Hee!
Last I used the beautiful Petal Pushers line from the Spring release to embellish this small square frame. I trimmed around the flowers on the transparency how I wanted then used some glue dots to secure it to the frame. This is an easy way to add some fun details to any project. I also created a little dimension by adding the bow, brads and cut-out butterfly and flowers.
These transparencies are CLEARLY a fun new addition to the ever-growing collections by Bo Bunny! What do you think? Do you have some fun ways to use trasparencies too? Leave a comment... let us know! We'd love to hear!
Have a great week!
