Transparenies and Blog Candy

First of all, don't forget about the Design team call here, or the previous blog candy here.

So most of you know that I just LOVE Hambly products!  What they are known for are their heavy duty printed transparencies (or "screen prints").  These can be intimidating if you have never played with them before, but once you do start to play, you will fall in love with them as I have.  One of the most common questions I hear about transparencies is how to adhere them without the adhesive being seen through.  Usually I layer a lot so I adhere the transparencies under which I have a layer that covers it.  But I also have another idea for you that actually adds to the design.  On this picture, I have used no adhesive.  I simply put the pieces together by making a line of 3D paint the overlaps it all.  Once the paint dries, it all just stays together.  Cool, huh.  :)

Here's the finished LO:

Yes, I know that I just showed you a different layout I made with this picture, but these layouts are for different albums.  :)  Besides, who says you can only use a picture once...not me.  

And for today's blog candy...

One lucky winner will get the AWESOME August Kit from The Coconut ScrapShop.  I designed this kit myself, and it even includes some fun transparencies from Hambly.  To see some LO's that I created with the August kit, look here.  In order to be entered into the drawing for this kit, you will need to post on your own blog or another website about this blog give-away, and then leave me a comment on today's post (include a link of where you posted about this).  The winner will be drawn and announced on August 23rd.  Good luck!  :)

Wow, you are a serious scrapbooker! I've gone from paper to digital so I don't have to manage the "stuff". I love it--but your stuff makes me tempted!

Thanks for coming to the state fair with me yesterday. I know, I can't believe I'm the only one from MN. Makes us look kind of backwards, but I always say we're one of the best kept secrets around--happy to keep it that way. ;-)
