|This just might be my first monochromatic card!|
If you saw my recent Anniversary Card with the TIP about Glimmer Mist Containment, you may have remember I pointed out that in gluing some of the letters for "Always & Forever" there was some glue seepage, which looked a little messy when it dried. I usually like using a glue pen for those smaller pieces, but lately I've really liked using my Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive, which is a wet glue. The problem is that I get in a hurry and sometimes put too much on, and it seeps out from under the smaller pieces.
So here's my TIP for today: Before the wet glue dries...just add a bit of glitter, or flocking. When the glue dries I simply brush off any remaining loose glitter. It works great to camoflauge the glue, and adds a bit of texture to your project as well. In this card I used Martha Stewart's tinsel glitter, I just thought it added to the wheat & harvest theme. You can use this tip for dry ahesive as well, but stay tuned for another great adhesive tip next week -- another idea for removing stray dry adhesive (and one I use all the time). =)

If you're not a member of Cricut Circle, not to worry -- you can find lots of inspiration on the Cricut Blog, open to everyone. On the Cricut Blog's right sidebar, you can view projects posted by a particular cartridge. You can do the same thing in my sidebar under Search LoveLee Notes, by typing the name of the cartridge you're interested in. If I have made a project with that cartridge, you'll be able to see all projects I've made with that cart. And it's updated after each blog post so you don't miss a thing. =)
I've got a few more projects to share, so I better scoot along for now.
Thanks for stopping by! Lisa
