So I am a bit of a foam tape junkie. Love the stuff, love to pop up elements on cards and scrapbook pages. The X-Press It Foam Tape makes it easy.
I used to buy all kinds of dots and squares, and I just got frustrated with all the waste. The squares were the wrong size, the circles have all the extra scraps around them. Any way I just found myself cutting them all to pieces to suite my needs anyway. I love the tape from X-Press It because now I just cut off exactly what I need in the shape I need it and don’t waste any.
A week and a half back I actually got to go on a scrapbooking weekend! The first in a year and a half and a scrapped three days away! I used my X-Press It Foam tape a lot. Here are some of the results: (These are all from the summer and fall of 2013, boy my girls are growing up!)
Here is a close up of the little apple elements I fussy cut then popped up. They were a perfect accent for the page and the detention made them shine a little more then the flat paper would have made them. I love that I could even trim a tiny piece to fit up under the leaf.
Then of course a zoo page. I have one of these about every 3-4 months in my albums. Our family always LOVES the zoo. we just wander and enjoy the animals. I try to select only a couple photos from each time we visit since we go so often and the giraffe was a highlight of the day. so I fussy cut him and his neck and head pop up above the page. I love the tape to run along his neck supporting the entire length so the photo will not get smashed when I add it to my album.
Here is a close up of Mr. Giraffe:
Lastly a series of Halloween photos, all are 4″ x 4″ so they fit across a 12″ x 12″ page perfectly, but then they all run together. Solution, pop up the focal center photo. And with the X-Press It Foam tape you can use nice long strips to support the edges and center of the photo.
Here you can see the dimension a little better, this one was hard to get a good shot of, but it makes a big difference in the layout.
the trip was a HUGE success 44 pages complete and OH SO MUCH FUN WITH FRIENDS. I ate too much, laughed too hard and enjoyed way too much. Always good to come home to the family and look forward to the next time 🙂
If you are a crafter that loves the pop up effect you will want to check out the X-Press It Foam tape. Scrapbooking, card making and general crafting I know it is a staple in my tool bag.
Have a scrappy kind of week!
