Welcome to My Week of Sale-a-Bration: Day Two. Throughout this week, as Sale-a-Bration wraps up, I’m featuring the items you can earn during Sale-a-Bration. Don’t forget that the countdown has begun, so make sure you earn all the wonderful rewards you want to stock up on before it goes away on Friday, March 22.
This stamp set reads “Wishing You a Day as Perfect as You Are”. Every time I made a mistake as a child, Mom would say, “We all make mistakes, Brian. No one is perfect.” Mom said it a lot. 🙂 If it is true that no one is perfect, then this saying isn’t quite the friendly salutation you’d think it to be. It’s like saying “I hope your day is less than perfect – because you are fallible.” Hmmmm… Anyway, I think it’s lovely.
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Labels Collection Framelits. When the Labels Collection Framelits were revealed, I almost passed out. What an amazing shape that can layer and layer and layer. Woo hoo! Then Window Frames Framelits were released, and they were my everything. Once the Ovals Collection Framelits were released earlier this year, the Labels were a past memory. I’ve pulled them out again as of late, and I so adore them. I didn’t know how much I had missed them until they made their way back into my life.
- Layering. It’s fun to play with the shapes available in the framelits. I didn’t want to stop with three layers of Labels Collection Framelits. What to add? What to add? I lengthened the layers by adding one of the shapes from the Apothecary Accents Framelits. I snipped it down the middle and then positioned it along the sides of the Labels Framelits pieces.
- Anchoring the image. The layers of shapes work well together, but then they are left to just float in the middle of the card front. I added a long strand of Calypso Coral baker’s twine, wrapping it around the piece between the card base and the card front. The twine adds a nice dimension but also anchors the image on the card front.
