Earlier this week, I purchased one of Kristina's digital kits. Don't we all love her? I love all the new stuff she's coming up with. I wish I had a digital cutter. Around the same time, I saw the following YouTube video from CK Media Online on how to create your own rub ons.
I printed the "thanks" on an acetate sheet (telling my printer that it was a t-shirt transfer, so it would print a mirror image of the word). I rubbed the word onto kraft cardstock. See...easy. The ink looks more blue than black and the letters are not as solid, but I like that effect.
Have a good one!

Here are Dawn's colors this week:
I got a nice email yesterday from Julie Allain. She asked me to join the Inspirational Team. Since I love looking at SO many blogs, I thought it would be fun to write articles showcasing the talent of so many great paper crafters.
