Allison's Tips and Tricks!

Hey Guys! 

I want to thank you so many of you for donating your services to make cards for New Brothers Fellowship that is awesome!  I hear that a lot of people are receiving Rub-On's as a special surprise... lucky!  I adore rub-on's!
But, the first time I bought rub-on's I thought they were stickers and I had no clue what to do and I totally ruined it; Sayonara $2.95--nice knowin' ya! So we thought we should give a little demonstration on how to properly execute beautiful Daisy Bucket Rub-On's (as well as any other Rub-On). 

Here is a picture of what they may look like...
Step One: 
Acquire product and tools.
Product:  The Rub-On and Paper you want as background.
Tools:  A Popsicle stick--- or something similar.

Step 2: Peel off of the background

Step 3: Place where you want it on the paper.

Step 4: Rub Rub Rub.... Use the Popsicle stick to rub over all parts of the print/picture.

Finished Product!  (sorry it's sideways)

Working Break....

Hi Friends Allison here!

Long time no blog.... sorry about that.  Pretty much the only excuse is the one we here EVERYDAY.... life has been REALLY busy!  

However, in all that busy-ness I haven't taken my mind off scrapbooking.  I am eager to get working on my 2010 scrapbook.  I've been sorting through my pictures and planning how many pages I want to do and trying to come up with those cutesy titles all the cool scrapbookers do--- with little luck, I might add (I'll have to pick Joy's mind).

I have been looking at lots of pages and scrap-lifting ideas and altering them a bit for my own use and taste. 
Also, I've been more mindful of the photos I'm taking. 
For instance I've been trying to take more "interesting" photos...
  Instead of my usual face close ups I'm trying to take a different more "artistic" approach. Along with face shots though I'm make sure to take full body shots and just change it up a bit.  

The above pic is of mine and my husbands shoes at the Blazers vs. Celtics game for his birthday. --Notice that I made sure you could see the floor, crowd, and scoreboard that says TD Garden.  I'm thinking this will be the main photo in a 5X7 for my book.  

I just bought more adhesive so I am ready to start scrapping again!  Can't wait to get rolling with my 2010 book!

What have you been up to?
