Oh I'm wired! This is a pretty basic layout -- except -- did you see!? The Wire!? I actually added this wire on the advice of a fellow cropper buddy. Why? Well, because my silly letter would not stay stuck! HAHA! I'm not kidding. These acrylic letters would not seem to stay put when traditional liquid glue. I didn't want to use glue dots because I felt that the dots would show too much. So, when in doubt -- use wire! I actually really like the added touch to the layout. Here is a close up.

Also, I've decide that I'm going to try and start listing all the products - or at least those of note - in the blog. I hope this will help with any layouts that I want to submit to challenges or for those reading to know what materials I used.

  • Blue pattered paper - DCWV, Tahiti Beach Stack
  • Drk-brown dotted pattered paper - My Minds Eye, Breaking Free Collection
  • Brown-rusty colored pattered paper - Dream Street Papers LLC, Remember The Moments - Christian
  • Cardstock - WorldWin Papers - Double Mates
  • Circles cut with EK Success 1 1/2 " circle punch
  • Random ribon
  • Unknown acrylic alpha
  • Gold 24 gauge wire
  • Zig Memory System - Calligraphy - Chocolate pen


  1. i seriously LOVE the way the wire looks wrapped around the letters...

    when in doubt, if you can find it, grab some E-6000 glue (i get mine at WalMart, but i think even hardware stores sell it) - that stuff will TOTALLY adhere your acrylic pieces and just about everything else.

  2. Oh! Thanks Leah the Orange -- I'm going to have to pick some of that glue up!

    I call this funness with the wire and the letters not sticking a SCRAP-O-TUNITY! haha - I learned that little term and love to use it. When something goes wrong with the project -- work with it and use it as an element of fun!
