Hi girls, So how are we all recovering from the BIG news??? don't forget that there are still some tickets available, head on over to HERE to purchase your ticket, and please read the conditions before hand. I am dying to meet Heidi! I cant wait!!!

So for today's update I thought I would let you in on a fun technique....... 3-Ding! I have recently re-discovered it and am inlove all over again. This technique works well on those types of patterned papers you can cut out, Sassafras Lass is perfect for this.

Here in this layout I cut out some clouds from the Happy Place Dreamland paper, and using some Double Sided Foam Tape on the back of the pieces I applied them to my layout along with some felt cut out like a sun I have added an effect like the sky with a sun and clouds. On this next layout I have cut out more of the design from the Happy Place Over the Rainbow paper.

And again using some foam tape I have applied them to the layout to add a fun childish feel.

And this last layout as it was an outdoors themed page I decided to add the clouds out of the same paper as the previous one, only I wanted it to add to the outdoors feel to the layout, hence the reason to having them up the top of the layout only.

When using foam tape you can also layer other items, like flowers, by adding 2 or 3 layers of flowers you are drawing the eye to your embellishment, just remember your layout still needs to fit into your albums, so too many layers may make for a very bulky album.
Try using foam tape under your photos too, or with ribbons, or even titles or journaling blocks, the possibilities are endless!
