Adhesive Winner & Creating on Busy Backgrounds

Happy Monday all!  Yes, I said happy Monday.  It’s raining and I’m off work today to that = crafty time!  Last weekend I was very blessed to spend a couple days with my best friend Jenn without any kids!!  I missed them dearly of course, but it was incredibly refreshing to just hang with her and scrapbook!  I created 10 layouts!  Here’s the first one I’m sharing from our special girls weekend.

My challenge with this beautiful Maggie Holmes DIY paper was to create a layout without covering up too much of the words.  I love the message in this paper and I definitely can relate to it with my crazy busy life!  To create with this particular busy background paper, I decided to use one 4×4 photo from my Instagram feed and add some simple layering and minimal embellishments.

If you remember a while ago, I was also doing a comparison between adhering sequins with Aileen’s Tacky Glue and Scrapbook Adhesive DOTZ.  As much I like the tacky glue for adhering ribbon and wood veneers, the glue dots by Scrapbook Adhesives is my winner for attaching sequins, hands down!  The sequins adhered with tacky glue could be popped off when the paper was bent, such as when a page is being turned in your scrapbook album.  It’s your lucky week because all the adhesives in my shop are 20% off with a special coupon code!!  Just use STICKIT20 to get your 20% off at check out!!
