Here's another layout I completed when I had the house to myself Sunday night. I used 4.5 x 6.5 patterned papers from the "Glitter Cardstock Matstack" (48 sheets for $8.95) and "The Glitter Mat Stack" (60 Sheets for $8.95) and one sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock. I used free chipboard to cut out the letters and a Bella Chips swirl in the bottom right hand corner. The ribbons are left overs from my christmas projects.
This layout shows some digital techniques. I used the "oil painting' feature to create this effect and then wrote the quote over the photo.
The quote reads: All kids need is a little help, a little hope and somebody who believes in them. Earvin Magic Johnson
I have added another quote: Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad. -author unknown-
To save paper I laid each piece down and then traced around them with a pencil. I then cut out the paper you wouldn't see. (Making sure to leave 2mm or more of overlap). So I have plenty left over even from such small pieces I started with to make a few cards maybe? Or another layout? I'm not sure yet but I'm sure it'll be fun!

...." I don't have a CLUE about what to do next...an embellishment? Journaling? Arghhhh!" That's the little voice in your head by the way - lol. ...and don't worry - you're not alone. We've all got one. Without a doubt, the toughest part of scrapbooking is coming up with new ideas .... ...And when the ideas dry up, so does the motivation... ...But don't let a lack of ideas stop you from PRESERVING your memories.... ...Because behind each photo, there's a STORY... ...A story that needs to be told... ...So people aren't forgotten and those special occasions will always be REMEMBERED ... ...So if you get stuck for new ideas, I want to help re-ignite your creative spark, so you can: • Make SERIOUS progress on that pile of photos you've been meaning to turn into pages.... • Get more CREATIVE than ever before...and produce layouts that looks like art. ... • Create pag
Scrapbooking is a wonderful hobby! Besides being relaxing and fun, it also allows you to be creative and to spend quality time with your family and friends. Plus, it results in a storybook of lifelong memories. One very important element of scrapbooking is getting it all organized. This includes, but is not limited to: storing all of your supplies in an organized fashion so they can be found instantly when you need them. remembering what supplies to pick up at the store, and eliminating duplicate purchases. finding time to research new and creative ways to spruce up your scrapbooks. finding enough time to enjoy the art of scrapbooking in your busy life. TELL A STORY. Plan your photos, before you shoot. Instead of taking random shots of someone standing here, or someone else sitting there, tell a story. For example, let's say it's Halloween. You may plan on taking four photos of your child: on the hayride taking him/her to the pumpkin field.
