Scrapbooking tip: placing letters

I've been doing this for a while now and find it really handy for checking I've got enough room for stickers and letters etc before actually sticking them down.

Basically what you do is find some clear plastic - the easiest place to find this is usually the packaging that alphabets or other stickers come in.

Place your stickers or alphabet letters onto the clear plastic in the order and arrangement you want them. You do not have to press them down hard, just lay them on the top as this is only a temporary measure.

Then lay the stickers (on the plastic) where you want them on your page to check they will fit.

You can rearrange as necesary before the final stick down on your actual layout.

Saves all those times share you stick something in the wrong place or don't leave enough room for all your letters and try to peel them back off and leave a mess.

Hope this is useful :-) Apologies for the quality of the photos but my crafting tends to happen at night once baby is in bed and the light for photos is not so good!


I love getting comments and will always try to come and visit you if you have your own blog or reply when I can :-) Thankyou
