Li'l Davis Memory Trends
Sneak Peek!

It has been so fun to be playing with Li'l Davis goodies again. They are innovative in design, and beautiful in style and color.

My first assignment for the tradeshow was use the Crillon Collection. This is such a gorgeous collection. With papers, chipboard letters, gorgeous ribbon, chipboard rounders and chipboard sliders, there is an endless supply of fun things to use and try. This really is a beautiful collection and a definite "must have" to add to your sophisticated collection. (I really do find this line gorgeous! LOL!)

Fun Techniques:
* Add a chipboard heart to the title to emphasize how much you love home.
* Add buttons to the chipboard flower centers for added dimension.


My second assignment was to use the Patterned Tape. (Make sure you're wearing sunglasses because I went a little BRIGHT!)

I really haven't grasped the concept or the fun of the pattern tape until lately. You're gonna LOVE it. Seriously! This tape ROCKS! It's tacky, but if you carefully place it first, you can pull it up and fix it. Then when you are ready you can gently rub it in place. Wonderful!!

I wanted to lead your eye from the photos to the tile, so I created a grid of several different patterns of the pattern tape. So much fun to try!

Hint: Cut the top tape's corner diagonally to match the seams.

Ten Things to Do With Pattern Tape:
1. Use as a border.
2. Frame a photo.
3. Wrap around a circular shape.
4. Use instead of ribbon and cut the tape's edge to look like cut ribbon,
5. Use Staz-on ink and stamp journaling onto strips of the tape.
6. Create an arrow by using a long strip and two smaller strips to create the arrow tip.
7. Create your own pattern paper by running several different types of ribbon in a vertical or horizontal line on your layout.
8. Create fun shapes like stars using the tape.
9. Use the tape to create the title (sketch title in pencil first).
10. Wrap tape around a paper project or altered item. It's much easier to adhere than regular pattern paper or ribbon.

There are lots of fun things to see at the Li'l Davis booth so make sure to stop by. Keep an eye on the Li'l Davis blog as well as they are adding lots of new fun things!
