Happy Tuesday Tutorial!

I just love Tips and Tutorials. Today’s in no exception. Design Team Member Shaunte Wadley created this awesome layout today with her daughter. What better way to preserve memories than having your kids do it with you?!

If you want to see how to do this…keep reading! This is going to be two part series. Today we will be talking about how to make the title and the next part will be how to print on those cool Core Tags!

First, grab some Black Magic Cardstock and a stylus. Have your child press firmly and spell out there name. You can write lightly with a pencil if  you need to but very lightly. The pressure from the stylus will blend it in to the black cardstock.

Also, you need to work on a craft mat of some sort NOT a hard surface.  The stylus needs a soft surface so it can make an impression in the cardstock.

With your Sand It Gadget sand..sand …sand! Notice we are sanding the negative space. Doesn’t it look awesome?!

All you need to do is add some of your children’s art work and you have an awesome layout that not only preserves those memories of your children but truly makes them a part of it.

Other products used: Core Tags, Spotted Collection, Whitewash Cardstock.
