Lovely Words Video

Hello, Crafters.

Earlier today, I uploaded my video showing how I made the Lovely Words card I shared here on Tuesday.

I received feedback from some crafters that they hadn't seen the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets in the Annual Catalogue!

It's such a shame when we have this amazing product, and crafters don't get to enjoy it because it gets overlooked in the catalogue!

I haven't seen any videos on YouTube showing how to use these sheets, which will also stop crafters from buying them.

I hope there will be more videos in the future as there are probably a lot of useful techniques and tricks to learn about using them.

With my card, I first decided which way round I wanted my Designer Series Paper (DSP) to be. I chose not to use two totally
different DSP's that introduced several colours.

If anybody does make one using an example of this combination, I'd love to see the result.

I'm sure they could work well, but I wasn't able to decide on two designs that I thought would work well together, so I stuck with the easy option! 
As well as using Whisper White, I stayedwith two colours i.e. Fresh Fig and Powder Pink; Crushed Curry and Basic Black; Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide.

With each combo I used, I used the design that had the colour as the background of the design as the top half of the background, and then I used that same design as the bottom half of the FRIEND image.

I love the contrast I achieved with the Crushed Curry and the Lemon Lime Twist cards, but I don't think there's enough contrast between the two DSP's on the Powder Pink card!
My video shows how easy it is to adhere the Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to the back of the cardstock and DSP you want to use on your project.

I wish you a very happy Sunday, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.



  1. So delighted that you did this video, Jan. I really do love that inlaid die technique. Your tip for lining up the papers at the bottom was excellent. Also, really loved the finishing touches on the card-inside. Wonderful samples, all of them! TFS!

    1. Hi, Geraldine. Sometimes when I write my blog, I wonder if I'd understand what I was reading if I didn't already know what it was I was reading(does that make any sense??). Then I decide it's probably best to demonstrate it! ☺ Happy crafting, JanB.
