Friday Faves!

It's another fabulous Friday and time to swoon over some store favourites at Let's Capture Our Memories. I'm sure that you have already scoped out the latest goodies in the store, but just in case you missed something, I will point out a few of my own favourites. ;)

These cute little bottles from 7 Gypsies are a lot of fun. I like them for beach layouts or altered items. For example, when we went on our Caribbean cruise, I saved some white sand from St. Martin. I added it to one of these little bottles and glued it onto an altered frame. It looks really cute and adds a memento from our trip to the project.

Crate Paper Storyteller Altered Frame

Next up, we have Heidi Swapp Color Magic paper. I love this stuff! It's so much fun to play with and the possibilities are endless!

Here's an example of a project that I did using one of these papers for a background. I chose to do a soft colour effect. This paper takes bold colours very well as well.

Remember Everyday Moments

These are new from Jillibean Soup, they're called 'Banner Bites'. You can't go wrong with these punchy little stickers for only $1.50! Add a toothpick to make them into a flag, or use them with twine or on their own.

Here's another fun product from the store, Studio Calico wood veneer cameras. These are fun and adorable. You can paint them, stain them with ink or leave them raw. I used them on my altered frame above.

Last, but not least, one of my must-have tools is the Ranger Inkssentials Heat It Craft Tool. I love to heat emboss on anything and everything. To create more interest and texture on a layout, I will often take a large background stamp, like the new Unity Christy Tomlinson stamps, and stamp all over my page with watermark ink, then I add embossing powder and heat emboss the paper. It's fun and satisfying. I had another heat embosser before this one and it died on me. Donna Downey swears that these are the best ones out there and I'm now convinced that she's right about that.

Thanks for tuning in!
