Hello everyone, Kim from Australia here to share with you a couple of tips for attaching your overlays to your layout. People often ask me how I attach the overlay without the adhesive showing. Here are two tricks I use.
Adhere your base cardstock or pattern paper down and then lay but do not glue down your photos where you want them to go. Lift up the photo and apply some adhesive such as double sided tape to the card stock and then remove the photo.
Now cut your overlay to size and using the adhesive on your base cardstock attach the overlay to your layout. If you want you could now return the photo to its original position and the adhesive is hidden under the photo. Easy!
To further enhance your layout and to ensure the overlay is secure I now use my sewing machine and stitch around the edge of the over lay, usually using a zig zag stitch.
Now you can go ahead and adhere your photo down on top of the overlay in its original position.
Go ahead now and complete your layout. I have used the baby buggy in blue over lay, onesies over lay in blue, blue script washi tape, wood grain alphabet letter stickers and a butterfly from the butterflies and flowers sticker sheet.
I hope this gives you a few new tricks the next time you use one of our overlays.
