Creating Keepsakes

Hey there, scrapbookers.  I get questions often about pages I do for Creating Keepsakes, so I thought I would share them here.  But first…

Thanks for all the kind comments.  You all rock.  I read all the comments and get a lot out of them, so thank you.  I would love it if you shared links to things you like, too.  It's all about the sharing. 

And, I picked a winner from the comments of a previous post.  Lucky Sandra won this punch from Fiskars.  (I emailed you.) 


I have some more prizes lined up for soon.

Back to Creating Keepsakes.  (By the way, did you know they have a great blog HERE?  Today has Brittany Beattie – one of my favorite people.)  These two layouts have been asked about a lot, so I thought I would bring them up here.

First, this one was for my article on trims – people wanted to know how to mat with trims.  I first put all the photos and such on a large piece of white cardstock – one giant mat.  I then flipped it over and put double-sided tape around the edges.  I laid trim onto the adhesive, allowing to stick off the side.  Once I had all the trims done just right, I put drops of Glossy Accents here and there to hold it in place for good. (And, yes, I shot this on a Thomas the Train table. πŸ™‚

A few people just asked about the dark blue paper on this with the big scalloped edge.  This is actually punched with a EK Success Martha Stewart punch – HERE.  Love it.  The loopy frame is actually created from Doodlebug border stickers.  (And, yes, this was shot on my messy floor.)
