Today I’d like to share some ideas with you for using the Lifestyle Crafts Letterpress Tool on your Albums Made Easy layouts. Take a look at the layout I made about my daughter’s birthday party. Can you spot the letterpress elements?
Here’s how I incorporated some fun letterpress designs into this layout. First I picked out some patterns from the Nautical Printing Plate Set that I thought would coordinate well with the Captured Journaling Cards I used. Then I ran them through my letterpress tool with some Black Ink.
I created one 3×4 horizontal journaling card with the letterpress by cutting down an A2 White Flat Card, rounding the corners, punching a sparkle shape and backing it with patterned paper. I also added some grey Enamel Dots to emphasize the word “congratulations” on the outside of my Photo Sleeve so the pocket would lay flat.
I also used the letterpress to create some borders for my journaling cards and photos. After printing them I trimmed them and added them to various pockets on my layout.
The designs on the printing plates coordinate so well with the Albums Made Easy Journaling Card designs. Using the letterpress is a fun way to add something extra to your Albums Made Easy layouts.
