Still having a few hiccups since the updates to the shop were done. Goes back to the old saying - if it ain't broken don't fix it. I must say I'm sure I've added a few more grey hairs over the last fortnight. Hoping to add some new products shortly - just not trusting the system at the moment until we sort out a few behind the scene problems.
Step two: Evenly measure, then punch holes down the left side as shown in picture above.
Step three: tear or cut (if you want a neater look) from the outside in towards the holes as shown.
Sometimes being innovative is half the fun in the papercrafting world.
Hope you are enjoying your week, the kids are back at school now, and the countdown starts to the silly season.
So lucky to have tui, wood pigeons and bellbirds in your garden. What a wonderful sound they all make. Really reminds you of spring. As Julia said extra merit would be given for things that are spring and you have included birds and cherry blossom, just lovely - great job. Email Fiona to receive your $20 voucher.
Good luck and have a great week:)
OK so to Top Tip Thursday. A simple one this week.
TOP TIP: when completing a layout, remember that it is your photo that should grab attention. You need to 'complement' your photo with the elements on your page. Don't fall into the trap of letting your elements/embellishments capture the viewers attention first. Rather let your elements 'compliment' your photo.
Hope you are having a great week, the school holidays are almost over.
Step 2: Using a Crop-o-dile or eyelet setting tool, punch small holes in the centre of the circles to resemble buttons.
Step 3: Completely cover the buttons in Dimensional Magic. Don't panic too much it the Dimensional Magic runs into the holes. These can be re punched CAREFULLY once they are completely dry.
Step 4: You are now ready to use your handmade buttons as embellishments for your cards and scrapbook layouts. You can cut any size circle you wish to make a bold statement or small for the more delicate projects. If you wish to have more dimension on your buttons, cut out more circles the same size as each other and layer them one on top of the other.
Making your own embellishments is also great if you don't have the 'real thing' in the correct colour to match your project.
