for years they have been putting out “must have” products, and this school line, “learning curve” is no exception.
i immediately printed out pictures from the first day of school this year. and then grabbed the paper pack to work with the colors in my pictures. i loved the green and a was immediately drawn to the “learning curve story time die cut”. once i put in on the background of the green paper there was so much blue, and so little room for all the pictures. so i started moving things around…and then is when my genius husband jumped in. (yes, i have to give him credit on this one!) “why don’t you cut it along this line here?”
well, wouldn’t you know, it totally worked. i cut that 12×12 die cut sheet and spread it out over the whole paper, leaving room for the pictures i wanted to add, which i adhered with the Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive Runner, and it was magic. i even used the permanent runner on the delicate scrolls taken from the larger piece of paper. the adhesive runner will allow you to follow a curve without lifting the applicator from the paper. that comes in pretty handy!
i added a few embellishments, used the fun rub-on script letters. once i got over my initial “what am i going to do?”, it all came together so well. it helps when all the products are coordinated – to solve any creative block.
