Memories Scrapbook layout with ScraPerfect
These are some of the supplies I will be starting with. The cardstock look's black in this photo, but it is actually brown. The sticker sheet is from a "Birthday Boy" sticker sheet I picked up at Dollar Tree. The cream, and brown photo mat is actually an invitation cardstock item. There are also some photo holder's, and a couple of brads. This is by no mean's everything I will use but this is a starting point.
However you will notice that in this photo I not only used a piece of the tear away portion of the cardstock sheet, but I also cut the center out to use as the second piece of matching cardstock that will be used elsewhere on the page. I don't always do this, but I find that it helps out not only my budget, but it also cuts down on the bulkiness of my finished albums. So for me it's a "win, win".
In this photo you will see I use an exacto knife to pierce the paper prior to inserting a brad. I found this makes inserting the brad so much easier, and it keeps me from tearing my paper as well.
Now I am on to adding the stickers, and photo turns. Even though these sticker's are for a "Birthday" theme, they fit easily into the subject of this page so don't pass by sticker's just because they are for a theme you are not currently working on. I purchased these at "Dollar Tree".
So here is the finished layout, I hope I have taught you something today, or at least you had fun. The smaller word stickers are from "7 Gypsies" Life sticker sheet. I also added a little bling to the "I" in the title, and on each side of the bow. So till next time "Happy Scrapping". Love Penny
