Acetate shapes have become more and more popular throughout the years. The printed pieces in the Felicity collection are great for layering and adding a subtle touch to your scrapbook pages, cards and other creative projects. Nancy Damiano and Janna Werner each share a project, highlighting the 'Felicity' acetate shapes.
Hi there, Janna here. I am a huge fan of acetate shapes, though I have to admit that I find them tricky to adhere sometimes. Using a stapler is a great way, but what if you´d rather use glue instead? I tend to solve the problem by adding a layered look to my embellishment and title cluster, just like you can see in the following pictures.
If you´d like to adhere printed shapes, you can usually use double sided adhesive - at least if the colors or patterns are in a darker color.. but what to do when you´d like to add a transparent acetate shape as the word 'loved' in my title?
It´s quite easy - I used double sided adhesive on the backside of the 'happy' shape and stuck the word 'loved' beneath it. Then I added the Felicity chipboard alphabet on both acetate shapes and glued down the pink 'loved' on the 'loved' acetate shape and background paper.
Have a great & crafty day,
Don't you love that acetate cluster? Jana has some amazing design skills! I used the acetate shapes to create a mini album about a vacation to California.
Creating a sheer cover is a fun way to use the 3x4 polka transparency in the September Felicity kit. I love how you can see all the fun patterns in this month's kit straight away.
The stacked chipboard title is divided with the acrylic word "beautiful". This mix of a small script font, and a taller, block font create a nice contrast and let each line of text stand out.
Let's take a peek at the inside of the album. Here a favorite picture is highlighted on a bed of patterned paper. On the opposite site, the acetate "happy" title is used to underline the sentiment of the stamped checklist.
Following the theme of "clear", here a sheer pocket was added to include some fun embellishments. The black sequin stars and more acetate shapes add some movement to the spread.
An acetate arrow underlines a really important place we visited - our favorite restaurant and view!
Adding an acetate title, flair and a stamped sentiment is a great way to use the "white space" in a photo. It's the perfect embellishment!
Using an acetate title right over a photo is a great way to add text. The sheer embellishment highlights the photo without covering it up!
Thanks so much for joining Jana and I today. We hope that we've given you some fresh ideas on how to use the beautiful acetate shapes in your Felicity Jane kits!
