Nobody is more girly than one of my friends who has a birthday coming up this month. I purchased the beautiful Betty's Boudoir digis back when they were released....and then kind of "hoarded" them in a way! haha. I'm sure we all do it with scrapbook supplies; I do it with digis too. I save them until I can make something special with them, looking forward to the first time I get to colour them.
Considering how excited I was to make something with her, it did NOT go smoothly.
First, I keep seeing these awesome shabby-chic makes with Frantage. Well apparently there's more than one kind, and I bought the wrong one. I heated and heated waiting for these to melt until I scorched the paper. It smoked so bad I turned it over to make sure it wasn't on fire!
Second, I've been saving this awesome rub-on and gem combo...but when I used it, it barely showed! (both pictured below. Thankfully the frantage covered most of the burn)
Third, I had the perfect frame picked out for my Silhouette, but the paper I wanted was just too flimsy and all the fine flourishes ripped. I tried again with a more sturdy paper, but only slightly better results. In the end I cut out just a portion of the frame to use.
When all was said and done the card took WAY longer than it should have to put together, but I really love it!

If anyone has some tips about Frantage I'd be grateful if you left a comment! I think I'll need to do some YouTube research before I try again. Thanks for stopping by!
