Square Mini Scallop-11 1/2 inch SQ631G.
The papers , chipboard letters , overlay, and stamps are all Fancy Pants.
I have been wanting to use these photos of my cousin Patti's little grandson, since I took them at the last family reunion. Isn't he a cutie? I thought it was so cute when I noticed , he was a pirate/batman. lol Hey... if you dream .. dream big... I'm sure he can be BOTH , if he really wants to. lol
That map sticking out of his pocket as his walking away.. is just priceless.
I thought I'd share a couple of tips with you, that I've found work really well for me. I always love it when people share things they've found to work for them .. so thought I'd share these.
Sometimes I want more definition on the edges of chipboard .. especially when it has lots of tight spots, or intricate detail, ( in this case .. letters).
I cant get in the tight areas with a ink pad without getting messy, and I've tried a marker and it I just don't seem to be able to keep it right on the edge without messing up.. so I use one of these q-tip type applicators. I just pick up a little ink from my ink pad and rub it around the edge lightly. I works great.
This is the something I seem to be doing alot lately. I love the look of sanding the edges of my photos and papers...but I started doing something a while back and really like the look of it... esp, when I'm wanting to .. kind of "frame" the photo ( or edge of the paper).
I use my handy big $ store emery board and line up the edge of my photo ( or paper) along the straight edge of something like my work table or work mat. I line it up straight , about 1/4 inch ( or however wide you want your border) in from the straight edge of the table or mat, and just
take my file in a downward motion , all across the photo (or paper) , from on edge to the other.
*Making sure not to do it do hard and cut the paper.
Just kind of a fun new way to frame my photos for certain projects that need a little something.
Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week... I'm off and running to the post office. Catch you tomorrow kids!
