Quick Tip Tuesday: I forgot to ink the edges!


Have you ever been happily cruising through constructing a layout only to realize you wished you'd inked those edges BEFORE you adhered your page together? Okay, well maybe not but I just did! Not only had I adhered my page together I had adhered it with my sewing machine! I can get just about any adhesive to release but I draw the line at clipping a jillion little stitches. For a second I thought I was sunk but then the little light bulb of inspiration went off. I simply used a piece some old packaging, slid it carefully under my edge and used my ink blending tool to apply the ink to the edges of my already adhered layers. Quick and easy. And for those of you looking for the follow-up to my twisted flower tutorial...it is on a snow-day delay...

Kristie,
I have forgotten to do this before to and I pull the paper up just like you!
Your project is beautiful, I love all the pinks and reds and those pretty pearl flourishes!!
