Trigger Tuesday Moxie Gingham Splatter...




Inspired by this weeks delicious Tuesday Trigger Bright BitesGingham Challenge in Moxie Fab World and the Splatter Challenge in Moxie Fab World together with CAS-ual Fridays Punches Challenge.  Love the bright colours and circles from this weeks Tuesday Trigger inspiration photo, I punched circles of solid colour from my Basic Grey and Pink Paisley scraps, and the checks, waves and spots are all Lily Bee Designs Double Dutch - a fantastic resource for gingham addicts!  The splatter was created by flicking the tube of Glimmermist in Olive Green, Cherry Red and Harvest Orange. This gorgeous sentiment is from My Favourite Things.

I discovered a really neat trick while making this card - I usually get really frustrated when I design a layout for my card (or scrapbooking) and then have to attempt to move all the overlapping pieces to stick it down, I thought what I need is a big not-so-sticky sheet to adhere to the top of my layout which enables me to turn my pieces over all at once, to adhere it to my cardstock base, then peel off the sheet.  Apologies to those who already know this trick, but I realised the answer to my problem was staring me in the face - POST IT notes!  So I was able to stick my layout down, in the right place, in no time flat!!!
