Kitchen Fairy


One of my goals for 2015 is to pick one hoarded product each month and use it up completely.  This month it is the turn of a packet of Maya Road rub ons.  They were one of the first things I bought when I started scrapbooking so we are talking years of hoarding them.


I used the rub ons on a background, randomly placing them in an L shape, with the Sketchabilities sketch number 133 in mind.


I then watered down my neon acrylic paints and used them as if they were watercolours.  I added a good amoint of splatters - partly because I got carried away having fun!

I added some neon 3mm ribbon tabs (from Crafty Ribbons of course!) under my photo, and added Heidi Swapp photo corners.  Then I was ready for my title/journalling...


I typed up "on tiptoes and a stool the kitchen fairy helps to wash up" using neon tape in my Dymo machine.  I loath this tape!  It  will  not  stick!  It is self adhesive and I've tried three different extra glues - any tips?  Every now and then I hear a ping from my shelf and 'the' or 'to' has flown across the desk!

Thanks for dropping by!

  3. This is such an adorable page and reminds me of when my girls were this small. I must take a leaf out of your book and use up my old stash as I am running out of room to store the lovely new goodies that are always so tempting! I have the same problem with the Dymo strips and I found the extra strong double-sided tape works quite well. Here is a link to the one I use. xx http://www.cuttingedgecrafts.co.uk/cart.php?target=product&product_id=31904&category_id=510
