This is the Day Printable

Now that it's spring, it's time to switch out my my seasonal printable frame (you can find Valentine's Day here, winter here, fall here, and Christmas here).  For spring I created a This is the Day printable.

Did I also mention that I got a new toy to play with, too!?! I picked up this laminator and a lot of different colored Therm O Web Deco foil from A Walk Down Memory Lane. Here's a picture of how the whole frame works.

I printed the Psalm 118:24 picture in black on white card stock. To get this to work with the Therm O Web it needs to be printed in toner (so printed from a laser printer or run through a toner copy machine, a regular ink jet printer won't work).

 Then, I ran the printable through my new laminator with Therm O Web's Gold Deco Foil (I'll make a video of this process soon, but it's really easy). The only small change I made was to run the foil through on the low temperature. To get a smooth, perfect transfer, I use the high temperature setting. I wanted to see what would happen if I used the lower temperature setting. What I got was an imperfect transfer that looks like cool, vintage gold leaf. The black is peaking through in places, and I love it, so I decided to use the imperfect transfer instead of the perfect one.
