snowflakes, the ice and the beautiful winter light, and make a mono
tone, white on white layout or card.
Graffiti. Put on your art smock! Each issue we’ll infuse a famous artist or technique into scrapbooking. Drip paint onto your paper as your background or get out your mists and splatter, it’s time to be inspired by Jackson Pollock. Show us your cards, pages, and projects. Let’s get messy!
Wall Street. Paper is cheap! When trying to save money, making
your patterned paper go the extra mile can help you save big, but we all
still want that dimension and/or texture that usually comes from the
more expensive elements. Show me your pages where you have used
patterned paper to create dimensional elements.
Daily Drive. Rise and Shine! Do you have a morning
routine that you (or your family) do every morning? Do you start
the morning coffee, make your children breakfast and then take
your furry friend outside for a quick walk? Perhaps you hit that
snooze alarm two times before prying yourself out of the bed or
do you wake up wide awake, singing praises to the day? Please
share layouts reflecting your morning routine with us!
Open Road. True Confessions! Scrap a confession...think guilty pleasures, a secret side of yourself, the most outrageous thing you have done, a job you would love to have!
Technique Turn: Three stamps are better than one! Get your image or background stamps out and choose three that will work together. Think scene, backgrounds, embellishments or paper piece one stamp with another. You decide how to combine three to create one outstanding card or scrapbook page.
