How Old Would You Be & Crafty Power Tape

Happy St. Patrick's Day, and welcome to our blog hop with Scrapbook Adhesives, makers of quality and creative adhesives. This is Holly, and I'm so pleased to be sharing with you today, along with Teresa, on our first blog hop day.
My two-page spread "Happy Birthday Blarney Style" fits right in today, and celebrates the birthday of two friends on March 17th.
I began by cutting these elements, designed by Suzanne Cannon-

HOW OLD WOULD YOU BE was stamped using Sepia archival ink, then cut out with the largest oval from Spellbinders Nestibilities Ovals Small  set. The green cardstock mat was cut using the same oval die, then cut in half, spread apart and attached to the top oval. The matted oval was then cut to be attached to both pages, using 3-d foam squares. The shamrocks were copper embossed and glittered, then attached using Dodz-medium adhesive.

The same oval was used to cut and mat this element. The pennants 3-d foam shapes were covered with design paper, then used along the edge of the oval to pop it up. White mounting squares were used along the other edge.

Crafty Power Tape was used to attach the narrow strip of design paper along the outer edge- the striped paper. White corner mounts were sponged with sepia ink then applied to the photos. More shamrocks attached with Dodz, scattered around.

Here you can see where I put down strips of Crafty Power Tape, then I laid on the Happy Birthday and Blarney cut-outs. Copper embossing powder was applied to all the exposed tape, then heated.

This tape stays put, doesn't shrink or curl- very heat friendly. Again, the tape strips and part of the cut-out had to be cut to separate the pages.

This was a fun party, these are terrific friends, and I'm so pleased by these pages and the memories they hold. I have the comfort of knowing they will stand the test of time, not discolour or fall apart.
It's all good!

I really like the embossed tape lines. It is a design element I haven't seen before AND a great way to tape down awkward shapes.
