Quick and Easy Graduation Layout


 Talk about quick and easy. This layout took literally 15 minutes to assemble once I'd gathered my elements, thanks to the quick stick of Best Glue Ever and the Perfect Crafting Pouch for drying my inking. I love how the Best Glue Ever works with all kinds of materials including the glossy, slick finish on the Program and tickets, and of course the plastic of the Dew Drops.




I layered the programs and tickets with a tag I had made earlier and some purchased embellishments. I also had the border piece - leftover stamping from an earlier project.  I inked the edges of my photos instead of matting, using the pouch to dry them quickly. I placed a few bits of bling with the Embellie Gellie as always. I used highlighter pens to color parts of the black and white images. I raised the tickets with eco-boards.

My last task - cleaning my stamps with Best Cleaner Ever.

Materials:
Papers: Colorbok
Chipboard tag: Krazy Kate Designs on Etsy
Stamps: Just Rite Cling stamps, Rollagraph
Inks: Colorbox pigment and dye inks
Embellishments: Making Memories Design shop stickers, Fancy Pants brads, Eco-boards, Dew Drops
Tools: Perfect Crafting Pouch, Westcott trimmer, Embellie Gellie, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
Glue: Best Glue Ever
Stamp cleaner: Best Cleaner Ever.

  2. Thanks Susie, yep that sure made it easier - plus the journaling seemed self explanatory, so I didn't feel called to add anything.
