I got my scrap space cleaned up these past two weeks. It really was a massive disaster zone. It was so bad that I just couldn’t take any pictures. I was feeling motivated to scrap so that helped me get things cleaned AND getting things cleaned made me more motivated to scrap! So I have a binder full of ready-to-scrap photos with page layout ideas. When I have a few minutes here and there, things will be waiting for me to put together.
Here is the page I got done this week. I am working on my kids scrap calendars back from April. It really has been that long since I have done any scrapping. When I lost my mojo, it got really, really lost. Now I think it is back, and hopefully not just for a brief visit. And I think I can keep it hanging around by cleaning up my space as I go and not letting the mess get so out of control. That is my scrappy tip for all of you today!
pattern paper: Fancy pants (background), Stampin’ Up and Basic Grey
punches: Stampin’ Up
journal marker: American crafts
other: bead chain, staples, wet adhesive, Photoshop Elements
For this one I pre-printed my main photo with some journaling (yeah I know one word is cut off a bit) and my title. I emphasized this photo with a border built in to the print. This saved me some time with title and matting. I went with some softer paper to go with my daughters softer personality. Throwing in some hard metal – bead chain and staples – helps support the dental theme. Using the bead chain for metal allows me to curve it and keep it softer and not too harsh. It felt really good to throw together a quick and lovely page. I hope I have more for you soon!
