#2 - Using Enamel Dots and Stencils on a Scrapbook Page

I've been seeing people making faux enamel dots for their scrapbook pages but they were using glue guns. Well, my glue gun glue is not very pretty so I thought, why not try this with ICE Resin?!

Disclosure: I received product to create this post. This post contains affiliate links from which I make a few pennies if you make a purchase)

I created clear and colored faux enamel dots with ICE Resin - here's how:
After those cured (it takes a couple days for ICE Resin to cure, about 6 hours before these can be handled), I used them to make a scrapbook page:

(yeah, I spelled "Renegade" wrong...but I fixed it on my page after I took this photo - doh!)

I also used a Stencil Girl stencil to create a fun mixed ink patterned paper background for my page. Here's how:



To Make Enamel Dots:
I hope you try to make your own faux enamel dots using ICE Resin - they cost PENNIES compared to purchased dots and it is a great way to use up any ICE Resin left after making resin paper, jewelry, or other resin projects.

#1 - Scrapbooking With Printables

Yay! Layout-a-week is back in business! I took an extended break and am oh so glad to now be back scrapbooking and sharing once again. I hope you find these pages inspiring and useful in your scrapbooking and creating :) Now, let's just get down to the nitty gritty!

Printables are HOT in the blog world and I kept thinking they would be perfect for all of us scrapbookers. Yesterday I blogged about how to use Silhouette Studio to convert a FREE online printable into a Print + Cut file for your Silhouette Cameo or Portrait die-cutting machine. Click here to see how to do that.

After all the pieces were cut, I created a scrapbook page with them - this is a super easy, less than 10 minute page.
