T{ippity} Tuesday!

It's time for another T{ippity} Tuesday post and I'm happy to say I thought of something great to share with you all today. It's one of those tricks that I use all the time and I remembered how brilliant I thought it was when I first heard it. It's something I learned from Lauren Meader years ago. If you ever get lost trying to find the perfect placement for a sentiment, try this.
Have a piece of scrap acetate on hand (your stamp-a-majig clear sheet also works great for this). I keep mine in the side drawer of my desk, so I can pull it out quickly when I need it. I stamp the sentiment I want to use on the acetate and because it is clear I can see through it and move it around my card front to find the perfect place for my sentiment. Sometimes I find the sentiment I want to use just isn't the right size, so I need to find something else that will work. The acetate makes this process easy, without messing up your finished card. After you see where you like the sentiment, ink your stamp again and stamp it on your card.
Hope you are having a great week! We are working on changing up this Tuesday blog post. Stay tuned for some new and exciting stuff!
Many Hugs!
