Four Tips for Using Summer Splash Specialty Paper

November 15, 2017

Have you seen the super cute Summer Splash Specialty Paper?  It is so bubbly and just perfect for your beach-side projects!  How can it be incorporated into a layout, tag or card I hear you ask? Well today the Design Team are highlighting Four Tips you might like to consider when creating with this paper.  Let’s take a look at their inspiration.

******

Tip #1 – Use the Specialty Paper as a Die Cut Sheet on a Layout

“Wet and Wild” Summer Splash Specialty Paper Layout by Rikki Graziani

Rikki doesn’t own a cutting machine and this is why she loves the Summer Splash Specialty Paper.  With this Paper Rikki achieves the effect of a cutting machine with minimum effort.  The paper is cut for her and ready to go onto her gorgeous beach side Layout.

Tip #2 – Spray the Paper to use as Texture Embellishment on a Tag

Tip #5 – Fussy Cut your Stickers

“Your smile” Layout ~ by Jowilna Nolte

For me, stickers mean layering and trimming close around the edges to make them look less like stickers and more like fussy cut elements but with the ease.

Here I layered the tiny bird sticker from the sticker sheet on top of a cut out from the patterned paper.

The rose sticker is sandwiched between a cutout flower and cut out element from the patterned paper sheet and finish off with a
butterfly from the specialty sheet gold leafed on the back to create a stunning element.
