Hi there! It’s Tina here with my very first blog post for the Clip It Up Blog! I am SO honored to be here!!!
Upon receiving my Clip it Up Main Base and Upper Tier, I immediately dug into it and assembled it! It took me all of 3 minutes! Good thing, since I was in the middle of cooking dinner! LOL! It is so easy to put together! Fabulous! I soon was digging into my stash and clipping things up. I realized some things… some ideas and some brain waves, which I will be sharing in my coming blog posts! I will start by sharing a couple today!
First thing that hit me… I have a LOT of Prima products!
I adore them, but have a tendency to hoard them away! Then, the new releases come out and I buy more… Upon adding SOME of my Prima stash to my upper tier I realized that it is TIME to start using my flowers and my bling!! So I did! Here is the project that I created!
To create this page, I began by cutting a strip of Basic Grey’s patterned paper from the Capella line. Then I matted it in green paper from the same line, and used a lacy border punch to give it a romantic feel. Then I cut out a 6 inch circle from another pattern and distressed the edges. It was at this point that the clip it up saved the day!!! I was searching around for something and came across the Basic Grey’s Note’s that I had bought to go with this line! I had forgotten that I bought them! I wouldn’t have found them if I hadn’t put them right there in front of me! I would have found them about 2 months down the road when that paper was all gone! Awesome! So I layered the paper note card and the transparency over my circle!
Next I painted some Magistical Memories chipboard, covered the inside with the green paper and added some rub-ons for my title! Then came the fun of adding the Prima pearl swirls and flowers! Gorgeous!
I printed my journaling and cut into strips, adding it with my Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive runner. For a final touch, I added lots of liquid pearls throughout the page for dimension and interest.
Thanks for allowing me to share my work with you! Thanks to the clip it up, it’s another project for the albums! Here are the 2 things I want to share with you today…
1. The Clip It Up will help you to see how much of something you have and help you to use it, rather than hoard it!!
2. When you purchase a paper line and embellishments to go with it, hang the embellishments on the clip it up so that they are accessible when you use that paper line and you will not forget that you have it NOR will you say FORGET IT because you can’t find it!! J
Until Next time… Happy Scrapping!!
