Whew, it’s been a busy summer, but I did manage to get a few things made. These album pages were part of a scrapbook I made for a fund raiser. It was a blast! Some of the die cuts were cut with my Cricut (palm tree, letters,) and others were die cuts from Sizzix and other miscellanious dies.
To give die cuts some definition and interest, I like to sand the ones made from white core cardstock, I also add chalk and glitter or embossing too. Another thing I do often is to pop them up with zots to give more of a 3-D design. Enjoy 🙂
Have a hard time remembering events by the time you get around to scrapbooking? Here’s an easy tip. Keep a regular spiral-bound notebook handy. When a memorable event happens, simply write it down in the notebook, along with pertinent information (people, place, date of event, memory), taking one page for each event. When it’s time to scrapbook, simply start on the first page of your notebook. When you are finished scrapbooking, tear out that notebook page. No more trying to remember what happened! Each time you’re ready to scrapbook, grab that notebook and start on the top page!
