Tuesday Tidbit: Shimmer Trim

    Welcome to the last Tuesday in July! This summer is flying by isn't it? Today I have a fun and helpful tip to share with you about CTMH's Shimmer Tape!

    I absolutely love Love LOVE our Shimmer Tape! All the colors, the easy application, sturdiness, and of course the shimmery glitter! Who doesn't love a little bling?  However, taking the protective backing off to expose the adhesive side is a bit of a pain! I have a solution for you, though, and I promise it's not a painful and time consuming effort!

Just a little sneak from the new Annual Inspirations Idea Book releasing August 1st!

    When you first get your roll of Shimmer Tape you will notice that the plastic backing is hanging as a tail off the edge for you! Take that idea and roll with it (pun intended.....Emily that was for you!)!!!

Sorry this is a little blurry, but it was hard to capture the tiny plastic tail on the end!

    When you use the Shimmer Tape for the first time, peel back the plastic overhang first. Then dove-cut (or angle cut), lay your tape down, and trim it to the size you need while it's still on the roll and the plastic coating is peeled away!

    Now you can cut your own plastic tag overhang to make it easy to peel next time you use it! See??? I told you it was a simple solution!

    I hope you enjoyed this little Tuesday Tidbit! I would love to see what you're making with Shimmer Trim these days! Post your pictures on Candid Captures' Facebook page under the "Shimmer Trim Album", and one of you could be drawn to win a  FREE upcoming Workshop seat! Until next time:

Here's to life, love, and creativity!
