Chic Tag's Let's Go! Collection; Road Trip Edition

Hello there!
Suz here, and I am back today to share with you a bit of the Let's Go collection; one of two newest releases from Chic Tag's CHA 2014! I also will be sharing a few simply ways to adhere down the super fun turquoise acetate alphabets in this collection.

The Let's Go collection is definitely a favorite of mine because of it's clean, bold, graphic lines and colors. And of course, because of it's theme; travel! Something I have been able to do a bit of this year with more travel in the plans soon. Super excited for that and to use this awesome collection to document my travels!

Recently, I took a road trip with a dear longtime friend of mine to Kansas City. It didn't matter that more than a foot of snow had fallen recently! LOL The interstates were cleared and I had 4WD to take on the side roads. So off we went!

Here is a two page layout of our road trip (I haven't done one of those in for-ev-er!) that I created highlighting many of the patterned papers, tags, and embellishments in this collection. I am still swooning over the badges/flair and the wood veneers. (As in SWOON-ING!)

I had a bunch of fun pairing up the flair and mixing it with the acetate alphas and wood veneers!

 I stitched the acetate letters in my "Road Trip" title work and adhered the "KS" (for Kelly and Suz's road Trip) with a Glue Dot then adhered the wood veneer "road trip" over it. That way the adhesive is hidden. Those are just two different techniques for adding the acetate letters to your designs. I often use my Tiny Attacher too, but sometimes it doesn't have the reach I need it to,  and that's where the aforementioned techniques come in handy.

Zooming in a bit to see the details here: 

Love the "go see do" wood veneer in this collection too! (*Note-the wood veneer "fun" is not a Chic Tags product).

So, what's your favorite item in this collection? If you are like me, it is so hard to pick just one!!
