The lesser noticed relation of the rub-on, iron-on's can bring a gorgeous dimension and texture to your layout pages. Check out our design team examples.
For this layout Mel has used an SEI Iron On (Boy Graphics) and ironed it directly onto the patterned paper, slightly onto the photograph. The trick to using an Iron On so that it doesn't warp your paper (and photo) is to place a tea towel (or something of similar thickness) over the Iron On before ironing. They're really versatile and can be used on a wide range of items - fabric, wood, paper and just about anything that you can heat slightly with an iron.
There are some really cute images in the SEI Boy Graphic sheet too - lots of boyish bugs, signs, tree and wording, which are just perfect for those hard to scrap boy layouts.
Steph had been wanting to use this SEI Iron On for quite some time, so when this chance arose, she couldn't help but use the Little Yellow Bicycle papers as a background. The iron on is actually flocked and because of this gorgeous texture Steph chose to continue the tactile theme by including some soft feathers which echo the little stork and baby softness.
Steph also used her favourite Glimmermist - Pink Taffy - which she used on the Glimmer Chips Butterfly Wings, and embellished them with an "m" for her daughter Madison. The Heidi Swapp crown finished off this separate embellishment perfectly.
Suz has rediscovered iron-ons with this challenge, and you'll see a lot more these gorgeous Heidi Swapp Apple Pie alphas in several layouts in the near future. And here's a tip: If you don't have, or can't be bothered getting out the iron, you can just carefully pull them off their backing and glue them down! Saves all that messing about when there's small children around, and means there's no risk of warping papers or melting any transparencies you might have lurking on a layout.
To create this cute little 8 x 8 wall hanging, Carole used the very cute range of SEI Doodley Doo Boy patterned papers and diecuts, but what made this project really special were the gorgeous Iron On Transfers - they were so easy to use.
Carole used some of the Iron On shapes on patterned paper, and then cut them out and layered them onto the wall hanging, she also used them on the Diecut Tags and also they worked really well on felt, which she then cut out and attached with pins or foam tape. Carole really loved the versatility of the iron ons, and how neat they looked when applied.
Carole also added some branches and then glued some cut out leaves onto the branches which held the Wall Hanging together.
Caz loves the Heidi Swapp iron-ons letters as they come in so many colours and fonts and are perfect for personalising clothing and presents for family and friends. They go on so easily and can be added to anything that is fabric and can be flattened over an ironing board end. They are also machine washable and stretch and bend really well with your clothing.
Here she has used iron-ons in Centre of Attention Lowercase, colour Sea, to personalise her daughters shoulder bag.
Create your own designer jeans with Heidi Swapp iron-ons. Caz glammed up these jeans belonging to her daughter with the sweet Apple Pie lowercase font in pink. Add a funky belt and you are all set.
