Studio Forty CT | Fun times

I don´t know about you, but I am loving the latest Snapchat filters! We often snap eachother funny photos and have a laugh. With that, I have quite a few Snapchat photos to scrapbook. 

I knew I wanted to use some of the yummy stickers that are in the shop! I like to go through the products I have whenever I start a project and select the ones I want to use.

I´m going with these label stickers this time. I really like labels! They can be used for so many different projects, right!

I wanted to use one of the big tags that I got from the shop. They come plain in different colors and I wanted to make some kind of background. I went with the purple label stickers and put them on the tag on the edges, cut them of and then used the other half on a different place on the tag. I love how it turned out! And also that I didn´t have to use any glue since they are stickers! 

I usually put some thread in the hole on the tag. I use embroidery thread my grandmother left me when she passed away. And here is a quick look at how I do that.

I hope that you can figure it out from the photos, but I basically cut about 5 or 6 threads to around 17 cm and then fold them in half. I thread the loop part through the hole and then secure it by taking the edges through the loop. 

Here is a look at how it it turned out! 

I used one transperent sticker and then this word sticker to add something more to my tag. Then I just adhered my big tag to my traveller´s notebook and I was done!

I quick and easy projects, just the way I like them! I love, love what the labels do to the whole page!

Have an awesome day!

Studio Forty CT | Do you like coffee?

I like my coffee, I really do. So I take quite a few coffee photos and I like to add them to my scrapbooks. Today I´ll show you a very simple way that I used that circle stamp up in the photo above to make it work for my coffee shot. Let´s go!

When I was going through my supplies I saw that if I just covered up the heart portion of this stamp It could look like the rings that my cup makes when I spill my coffee. At first I thought I would use my trusted black ink, but I really wanted to make the rings look like coffee, so I got out a light brown ink pad and started working. 

I do like the result if I do say so myself! 

I have wated to use that wrapped banner stamp forever, but haven´t had the right idea until now. So I used it to hold that cute coffee stamp. Doesn´t it look festive?! I also thought about stamping that cute coffee cup, but ended up using the die cut from this pack instead.

So, do you like coffee?
