Using up your rub-ons...

If you love rub-ons then I'm sure that you have had the usual problem of ending up with some that stuck to the plastic backing already because it has not been used for a long time. Well, I have had that problem and I realized I had to start using my rub-ons soon. So for this PRIMA layout, I made a page with no patterned paper but just used all rub-ons to create the design. It sure was fun! You should try it too....

Multi-Layered Transparencies...

Here is another addiction of mine... transparencies!! I love that you can layer so many, yet keep the page from looking so heavy. This new paper release from WEBSTERS PAGES went so well with my Hambly, MME, and Making Memories transparencies...


An October Afternoon Album done in one afternoon...
I love the new chipboard album of OCTOBER AFTERNOON. It came with lined and scalloped pages. I simply adhered the pages over the patterned papers from the new "Hometown" line, added some embellishments, applied rub-ons over the journaling pages, and I was done!
