DT Projects Plus An Easy Technique

Good Tuesday morning everyone!!

Today, I want to share a couple of Design Team projects, including a quick and easy technique showing you how to add glittered polka dots to any of your projects, using Helmar Zapdots. Who doesn't live polka dots, right?

First up is a project featuring my 2 boys, Donovan and Xander, that I created for gonescrapbooking/examiner.com. I mixed products from several Pink Paislee and Basic Grey lines to create this layout.

Next, I created my card using Preferred Partner Products from Lily Bee Design, Clearsnap, PK Glitz, Hambly, and Maya Road, along with Helmar Zapdots and Professional Acid Free Glue.

1. I Started by randomly placing the zapdots on my card.

2. I sprinkled glitter over the zapdots and then tapped off the excess.

3. The glitter adheres really well to the zapdots.

4. Tip: I heated the zapdots, as if embossing them, so that the glitter doesn't fall off over time.

Here's the finished project.

Loving the extra touches on your layout with the stars and arrows---GREAT idea of heat embossing the glue dots! Never would've thought of that myself! :)
