I hate rub-ons!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, they are The Devil's Work..... aren't Papermania ones meant to be good? lol.....

As usual I spent aaaaages trying to work out this scrap page.... and had everything laid out and pondered about for days....

..I've even messed up entirely as I decided to .... Take Part In A Challenge!!!! ... but that was for scalloped CIRCLES not OVALS... Myz you are an idiot...no challenge for juuuuu :P

..and then things go even more wrongerer.....

I don't have many things that 'match' in my stash but as I said to my Bezzie only this morning that's something A Good Thing... you think more.... If I had a whole loads of bits that Fit Together I'd no doubt end up with the same thing everyone else is making... innit? :)

Aaaaaanyway... I had this:

Nothing special, but I decided less bling and changed the ribbons to less blingtastic ones.... and then

*music of doom* bom, bom bOOOOOOOOOm.......

I tried to put the rub ons on....

Hmmm... ok that didn't work

A panic and a fret later I thought ahhhhhhhh look I tried to use them over glitter... silly Myz! Ok, why don't you just rub them all onto card and cut them out?

As you can see that didn't work either....

So I had to break out The Big Guns..... and made some on the PC and cut them out.. with hindsight I think darker to match all the rest of the toppers would have been A Good Thing but the PC was upstairs and my creation was downstairs so I sort of guessed....

The rub ons would have matched :(

Anyway this is the finished article...

...it'll do I guess... *sigh*

One year old and 5 years old to go... and then I'll find out I can't work the Bind It All... won't that be fun, children? ;)

In case you are interested here is the finished one from last week (or was it the week before I forget lol)

I hope you are all having a nice crafty week. We've made hubby 40th birthday cards for The Big Event at the end of the week... pity about the no cash to send him out partying with his mates but at least we could make him some cards...

I won't post them here yet though as he lurks on my blog sometimes... not a clue what he thinks I might be saying about him ;)


G xxx


  1. turned out well in the end.....run ons they either behave or they don't in my case :)

  2. Too much lilac though but I can't expect to get it right immediately lol


  3. It's lovely Gail. I actually think it's one of my favourites of yours.

    And if you want to see someone getting in a pickle - me trying to put peel-offs down and not sticking them to my fingers or everything else. Grrrr. Hate them. That would be why I abandoned card making classes - plus, the cards were too 'clean'.

  4. LOL yeah you beat Devvie :)

    ....stickers I can do.... I put them on with a scalpel...try that... I tried it once and never looked back.... way better than sausage fingers ;)


  5. I love lilac! I seem to remember there being problems with Papermania rub-ons- read about it on the DoCrafts forum.

  6. Necessity is the mother and I am on your side when you say that a matching set would be the same as everyone else's, innit. The Papermania RubOns don't have a fab reputation but they should work a bit...if you know what I mean! Never mnd though, fab page created without them. Like both of these very much.

  7. fab page you're doing really well i've not even started one yet.
