How to add an easy POP to your projects with Transfer Foils

Hello and welcome back to the blog today.  Shelly with you, sharing a simple layout with a pop of metallic red.  I love pops of red on my layouts and ScraPerfect Transfer Foils are so easy to use, they make adding a POP to your layout a cinch! Today's layout is commemorating my life long passion for reading.

To create my red foil arrow:

  • Using finger (or small paintbrush if you prefer) cover entire surface of chipboard shape with a VERY thin layer of Best Glue Ever.  BGE will go on white, and then clears as it dries.  
  • Once the glue has become clear and tacky to the touch, place your transfer foil (color side up) on top of your chipboard piece
  • Rub with your finger all over entire surface
  • Quickly pull transfer foil sheet off of chipboard piece
  • It really is that easy!

Another embellishment technique I love using is to "deactivate" stickers with the Perfect Crafting Pouch.  This allows me to layer and build up the stickers and even add dimension.

Once I customized my embellishments, I put my layout together and of course used my Embellie Gellie to apply most of my components.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.

Have a creative week!
