We love out talented design team members because they help us to think of fun and creative ways to use our product. Today, Candace Perkins is here to share a fun and unexpected way to use our newest metal die, Everyday Tabs. With our without the Everyday Tabs Stamp, this die can come in handy on your projects. Let’s see how she used it!

Hello friends!  It’s Candace with you today to share a fun project using the Everyday Tabs Metal Die.  I love working with dies and finding new creative ways to use them.  For today‚Äôs project I wanted to use the dies to create a layered background on a 12″ x 12″ layout.  Here is a look at the final layout and layered design I created using the dies:

Supplies | October 2019 Kit, Autumn Puffy Stickers, Wood Veneer Leaves, Gather Acrylic, Home Sweet Home 6 x 6 Paper Stack, Everyday Tabs Metal Die

First, I used the Metal Die to cut lots of tabs from the various cards in the October 2019 Kit.  Next, I started moving and arranging the tabs around the page to create a design that is both creative, but balanced.  

I chose to first put a base of tabs directly onto the cardstock and then I popped up additional tabs with foam adhesive to create more dimension and interest on the page.

To create my title I added the Gather Acrylic piece along the bottom of the photo.  I love that the white on white is an easy way to add a subtle and soft title that doesn’t compete with the bold colors and patterns on the tabs.  On the side of the acrylic piece, for just a bit more embellishment, I added two Wood Veneer Leaves along with a twist of twine and topped it off with a puffy heart sticker from the Autumn Puffy Stickers sheet.

I love this simple and clean layout created with a base using the Everyday Tabs Metal Die!  How will you chose to use the fun tool on your projects?! We would love to see how you use the tabs in fun and creative ways!
