Fun Technique

A common complaint for those of us that read scrapbooking magazines is the high ratio of ads to articles. Here's at least one reason to feel better about all of those ads...

Love You A Latte

Basic Gray often has super interesting ads, and those cute coffee cuts were cut from one of their ads for their "Infuse" line. Just a little careful cutting. I mounted the red cup on chipboard and popped it up. Inking the edges helps cover up all of the little imperfections. I'm sure you can find something fun to add to a layout! If you're worried about it being archivally safe, you have a few options. You can use archival mist, you can laminate the non-archival parts, or you can scan and print the images on archival paper.
