Mosaic Moments

This new product isn't really new at all. They've just taken an awesome product and made it even better! In this post I will show you how I took this

and turned it into...


Mosaic Moments is an awesome product that has been around for years. Back in the day when I had more time I used to achieve this look using a metal ruler and a cutting mat. Now they have taken all the work out of it and made steal rule dies to use in our Big Shots, Cuttlebug or any roller machine, I love you people!!!!!

So here we go...I chose a Disney photo to try this out on only because I'm so many years behind and these are what I currently have out cluttering my desk along with all the matching Say Cheese line by Simple Stories. Another company I love because they are sort of like Geranimals back in the 70's. I remember school clothes shopping with my Mom and running around matching tags so all my outfits were perfect together. Ahhhh the good old days...

I trimmed down my large pieces of paper to place on the grid paper next.

The next step was my favorite, I used the new Mosaic Moments One Inch Grid Die to cut coordinating 1" squares to put on my layout. Can you just imagine how long that would take the old fashioned way?! Btw did you notice my new colored cutting plate, it's pretty awesome huh? You can pick up a set of your own at The Pine City Scrapbooking Co. They come in pink and purple too, call me (320-629-9960) if you would like a set and I can send them out to you!

I'm also loving this number die from Mosaic Moments as well. No surprise they are 1" square so they fit perfectly on the grid paper. 

For this project this is my adhesive choice. I like using the Scrapbook Adhesives E-Z Dots because they are re-positional for a time and then become permanent. The Quick Dry Adhesive worked awesome for the number squares because there isn't much to glue down. It is actually always my wet glue adhesive choice. It has a low water content so the paper doesn't bubble when you use it.

Time to assemble! The grid paper makes short work of it, everything is evenly spaced.

And there you have the finished product! It was super easy, this would work to use up your scraps as well.
