I have a scrapbooking tip for you today! I know that most of you have probably heard the trick of lining your letter stickers up at the top of a ruler, right? Well, I rarely scrap with a ruler-perfectionism takes some of the fun out of scrapping for me. So, I compromise! Any straight edge will do for lining up those letter stickers-even the top of the sheet that they come on!
I am thinking of making Tips and Tricks Thursday a regular feature on my blog...but I want to know what you all think! Drop me a line-let me know what you are interested in, and if you have any questions, I just might be able to answer them (in my less than perfect way, of course!)
Here is a look at the layout that these letter stickers went onto:
A closer look at the layering:
This layout was very much inspired by Shimelle. I started by trying to follow last week's Glitter Girl prompt to choose colors for the layout without drawing on the photo's colors- choosing school/reading themed papers and scraps rather than trying to match my childrens' non-matching outfits. As I was putting my page together, I was watching this week's Glitter Girl episode about journaling, and was inspired to tell the rather funny story behind my childrens' cheeseball grins in both the journaling and title. I am also drawing on some inspiration for the page design and theme from Shimelle's Scrapbook Remix class.
Supplies used: kraft cardstock background, papers and scraps from Crate Paper's Storyteller line (so glad I got that paper pad-I know I will be using it a lot!), scraps from Making Memories, Creative Imaginations, Graphic 45, and Lily Bee, the orange butterfly is a digi element from Jenni Bowlin's line at Jessica Sprague, and I printed it on an inkjet transparency and fussy cut around the edges, letter stickers are American Crafts Thickers and Jenni Bowlin, and I was able to use some digital elements I printed for a previous Counterfeit kit from Echo Park's Everyday Eclectic line, washi tape from Target's Up&Up line, along with some o-o-old embellies- Bazzill button flowers and Making Memories metal signs (the word "learn") and the little green house sticker.
What do you think? Don't forget to let me know if there is something you want me to feature on Thursday's Tips and Tricks segment!
