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!

  2. that's a fab idea, love the layout and the photo is super cute!

  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

  4. So cute, the title work is perfect emphasizing the stretch going on there.
