Tacky Glue Review with a layout Tutorial!

Hello Ladies!!

Brace yourself as this is going to be one LONG post!
Are you playing along with us at Lulupu's Challenge #60 - Moodboard

There are projects where you need a super fast glue that will dry quickly and stick strong! Aleene's Tacky Glue is one such glue that will definitely make layers and embellishments adhere firmly! :)

(Disclaimer: My review and opinions are stated here, after I have actually used this wonderful product myself!)

Alright! So, today I am going to give you review about three types of Tacky Glue.

Masculine Layout / Picture Tutorial

Hello everyone,

It's Roshni here, and today I have a picture tutorial for a masculine layout using Papericious - Naturals  paper pad that I received in my DT kit. So let’s get started :) 

Step 1

I took a piece of white 12x12 thick cardstock and applied Gesso on the two sides where I was going to apply texture. Then using tim holtz mini stencil and sakura modelling paste  randomly applied texture on the sides.

Cards showcasing 'We R Memory Keepers' Embossing Strips

Hello and good morning folks!

Jasleen here today and I hope you are enjoying this month's Mood Board challenge and the DT inspiration work shared so far. :)

Today I'll be sharing three cards showcasing True Stories embossing strips by 'We R memory Keepers.'

For starters, these embossing strips are 2 by 6 inches sized little embossing folders that help to add texture and dimension to the paper craft projects, such as greeting cards, scrapbook pages, tags or photo albums. One pack includes six different designs of these strips and they can be used with any brand of die-cutting or embossing machines.

Here's my first card where I used the 'Celebrate' embossing strip :

Moodboard Inspired CAS Cards

Hello, Everyone!

Suchi here with you all today! Hope you are having fun making wonderful projects for our current April Challenge #60- Inspired by Moodboard?

I made 2 CAS cards using a fabulous stamp set from Hampton Art. Lovely stencil and stamp set is available at Lulupu store HERE.

Now, let's check out my cards! :)

I was inspired by the Bokeh part of the mood board in both the cards! For the first card, I used the overlapping technique. :)

I have used Shabby Shutters distress ink for the background. I used different colored papers for the speech bubbles and stamped using Archival ink. The pattern paper panel is from "Notes & Things".

For the second card, I used different distress ink colors- Mustard seed, Wild Honey and Picked Raspberry. I have used the Bokeh colors from the moodboard.

Hope you like my cards and got inspired.

You can link up your entries HERE. The general guidelines to enter the challenges can be found HERE. Do mention in your post what it was that inspired you from the moodboard.

Hope you have a great week ahead!

Suchi :)
