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.)
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. 🙂
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.)
OK… off to watch a movie. Night!
