Tips and Tricks for My February Creative Kit Layouts
I admit it. I look at the My Creative Scrapbook design team gallery sometimes and think - "hay I didn't get that in my kit" or "where the heck is that?". Amazingly the products are really in the kit! The design team is so creative with the products they are given that they are sometimes hard to recognize. I thought I'd share some of my not so secret tips on how I created my layouts this month. My first layout features my son, Charlie. I created my own chalkboard looking background using a piece of black cardstock, a white gel pen, white ink pad, and the rub-ons from the kit. I just drew a boarder around the cardstock using my gel pen then added some ink on the edges. A few other white lines around my rub on and I had a chalkboard background. A couple other notes on this page; I tore apart one of my flowers so part of it is used on this page. I also created the small flowers using a flower punch. Lastly, I did add some of my own red twine.
