Are you a fan of adding layers to your scrapbook pages, but hate the added bulk? Rub-on transfer images may be the perfect solution for you! In this video, you’ll learn just how simple and effective they can be. These transfer images effortlessly add contrast, texture, and color to your pages, making them pop with vibrancy.
In the past, rub-on transfers were a popular tool in the crafting market, but they were often challenging to apply and would not transfer entirely onto the project. However, like many other products in the crafting world, transfers have evolved and are now significantly more user-friendly.
For this pop of color, look no further than the Simple Stories Collection that came with the March Hip Kit. With a variety of vintage floral and title designs, these elements truly enhance your pages.
I started with a layer of butterflies above and below my photos then created a striking color-blocking effect using a combination of large and small butterfly images. I then layered additional elements on top to complete the look.
To create a layered look without the added bulk, I cut a border from coordinating cardstock using a circle die and then adhered it to the bottom of my floral pattern. This overlapped the butterflies slightly, resulting in a lovely finish.
Over the top of the butterfly images, I added additional stickers, die cuts, and rub-on transfers. These opaque transfers can be layered on top of others to add contrast and texture to your page, eliminating the need for foam tape.
Adding texture and dimension to your projects is always a good idea, and with transfer designs, it couldn’t be easier. The package includes a multitude of printed layers that can be easily cut out and applied to your design.
If you would like to learn more about how to use rub-on transfers to add dimensional interest to your scrapbook pages, I have a simple process video for you.
Rub-on transfer images take your page to the next level without the need to add bulk to your page designs. There are multiple options to choose from to fit your creative style. I hope you give them a try.
