Christmas is on the horizon and I’m busy planning for the holiday. I realized that I had photos from last year hanging around that I hadn’t scrapped yet. So why not tackle those now and share some tips and tricks with you on some festive elements you can add to your Christmas layouts?
In this video I show three ways to use Nuvo drops as embellishments for layouts.
1) Spell out words with the liquid.
2) Create little ornaments to sprinkle around your page.
3) Create frames for photos. (How-to details in the second video)
I love the shine the drops add to this layout. It totally reminds me of frosting on cookies! And that is a bonus tip. You can create some die cut gingerbread or sugar cookie style cutouts and then “frost” them with Nuvo drops!
In that first video I mentioned having already created my frames. In this second video I show you a kit build and then toward the end of the video I feature how to create these frames. Since creating this video I’ve realized that if you create your frames on a nonstick craft sheet instead of parchment then you are likely to get a smoother end result. However the craft sheet can be harder to see through (depending on your brand) and will make working a bit harder.
