Center of Attention Product Spotlight - Thickers
Once a month half of the Baker's Dozen participates in a TE Product Spotlight. It's so fun to showcase products from the TE Store that you might not be aware of or might just like to learn more about. This month we are featuring Thickers self-adhesive dimensional letters by American Crafts in a variety of styles to add a special pop to all sorts of projects. You will love how easy they are to use. The size makes them great as a focal point or large sentiment on cards. They're also perfect for scrapbook pages of all sizes. The fabric styles can easily be customized with a variety of coloring mediums. Whatever your message, you can say it with Thickers!
For my projects today, I used the Thickers Patchwork in aqua. My first project is a scrapbook page. I LOVE using Thickers for scrapbook pages because you can overlap the Thickers on the picture. Also, the sentiment doesn't get lost on the page because it's nice and big. If you notice on the scrapbook page, some of my letters are red. That the other thing I love about Thickers. If you don't like the color you have, or it doesn't match your project, you can use a coloring medium to change their color! I used a Chili Pepper Acrylic paint dauber to change the letters in "man".
For my second project, I paired the Thickers with one of the A la Carte Animals in Love images, Scotties in Love. I love how I could change the feel of the stamped image by creating my own sentiment, in this case "Ruff Day?" Again, the sentiment doesn't get lost because it's nice and big!
