I have only played around with foiling a little before now, but I can tell you I am addicted!! I don't have a laminator, and even though I love the look of the foiling techniques using them I honestly wouldn't go out and get one. So, I was really excited to see that you don't need a laminator to use these fabulous Foil Sheets! I played around with a Quickie Glue Pen, some Be Creative Sookwang Tape and Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder to get fun foil looks to create embellishments for this DIY Traveler's Notebook. I'll give you a close up look at each page, but be sure to check out the video where I show you all the beautiful details and how easy it is to add foil to many different surfaces! Here's the cover using some pretty Paige Evans paper, some CTMH stickers, Tim Holtz Botanicals Embellishment Diecuts and SpiegelMom Scraps sequins.
I love the effect you get with the Be Creative Tape and several different colours of foil. And, of course this little Julie Nutting paper doll needed a bit of bling on her pretty outfit!
A journaling card with a Tim Holtz Small Talk sticker turns into a flap using some washi tape.
Inside reveals a couple of sweet girls from the Tim Holtz Paper Dolls.
These adorable vintage papers are from October Afternoon, and I love the gold accents I was able to add to the cork arrow!
A cute little lady bug peeks out from this flap.
Seriously, you can add foil to everything!! I stamped on these Memory Box Postage Stamp Diecuts with a Dylusions background stamp, used the Quickie Glue Pen and foil accents and layered them with a pretty diecut flower from the SpiegelMom Scraps shop that I also foiled.
Using the same flower stamp directly on my paper with Versamark Ink and Ranger Sticky Embossing Powder allowed me to add foiled flowers to this page.
More diecuts accented with different foil colours and a chipboard star add a vintage feel to this page.
A little Kaisercraft tag peeks out of a pocket made from a diecut element in the TH Botanicals pack.
How cute is this Paige Evans sofa and the Julie Nutting doll?!!
On my last page I used a beautiful image by Jane Davenport cut out of some packaging and a few more foiled elements.
I was so happy with how this Traveler's Notebook turned out! You can see how I create the notebook, and how I add the foils to lots of different surfaces using the three adhesives above in my YouTube video HERE. I'd love it if you'd like and subscribe 😍
