Dotty for You Artwork Tips

I’m crazy about the fabulous artwork you can create with the Dotty for You paper packet during National Scrapbooking Month! Each promotional paper packet includes an insert with a picture of the artwork, a recipe, and a unique technique, for inspiration. Here are a few of the fun techniques you can use to create the artwork samples shown...

Sweet Life Page

This page is my favorite one of the artwork ideas on the insert because of the adorable kids in the photos. Oh, did I mention that the adorable kids are mine? LOL!

Making Embellishments Stand Out

Add a bit of white, solid space behind decorative elements, such as this baker’s twine bow, to help them stand out on busy B&T Duos® papers, like this chevron pattern.

Kiss Page



Pin Flags Technique

Make a darling accent from your paper scraps by trimming a complementary banner and wrapping it around a pin from the Bling assortment (Z1466) to form a small pin flag.

Here’s a little bonus project that you can make. This one isn’t on the insert, but I had to include it because it is so cute...

Good Luck Card


Neutral Inks for a Clean Look

To create a card with a clean, crisp look, use the dominant neutral color to stamp your sentiment.

Yo-yo Accent 

Create a trendy yo-yo element by accordion-folding a long strip of cardstock every 1/4", adhering the two ends together to make a circle, stitching the center with thread all the way around, and pulling the ends of the thread taut to create a yo-yo. Secure the center with a button to keep your yo-yo flat.

Remember, you can get this great paper packet including 24 sheets of cardstock weight B&T Duos and artwork idea insert, for only $5 when you order just $35 of products in the current Idea Book.Plus, if you add another $10, you can get the stamp of the month for only $5 as well!
