Remember the Maya Road clear acrylic calendar stands from my Recipe Book post? I bought a bunch of them on my last trip to Archiver’s and used one, along with the awesome Cosmo Cricket Get Happy kit I ordered, to make a sit-around scrapbook of our time at UNC for Sophie! I think it turned out really great (if I do say so myself), and might end up making them for other people down the line.
I used two new products for the first time on this project and would definitely recommend them to others:
1. Glossy Accents clear dimensional medium: This stuff is really cool! You squirt it onto whatever you’re working on and it hardens to form a clear dome on whatever you put it on. Putting it on letters makes them seem like they were expensive, store-bought epoxy letters.
2. Xyron 1.5″ create-a-sticker: This is an AWESOME little tool. You stick whatever you want to glue down in the top, pull on the tape from the bottom, and it comes out with sticky on the back of it! It might eliminate the need to ever use glue pens again. If you’re thinking of getting one, make sure you don’t pay too much for it. I got mine for $10 at Hobby Lobby, but I’ve seen other places that sell it for $15 or $20. (And yes, I did buy the purple one.)
Anyway, without further ado, here are the pics of Sophie’s scrapbook stand:
P.S. I again used my Studio K alphabet rubber stamp set to make the captions. Don’t they look cool?
