With simply paper and creativity anyone can create art

Monday, April 4, 2011


I'm doing a little series for the Ideas For Scrapbookers blog on turning some of your old "newbie" scrapbooking layouts from lacking to lavish. Sometimes the original design concept is good but the layout lacks in dimension, texture and details. I won't be blogging about all the layouts I update for this feature series but this one I changed so much that it even warranted a re-post in my scrapbook.com gallery... so I thought I would post it here too. The original layout was inspired by Gabrielle Pollacco, but now with all the changes I really made it my own. Head over the the Ideas For Scrapbookers blog to see the before on this one and the other layout I updated too. The papers are Prima and the vine I won from a challenge on scrapbook.com from WendyG-SA a few months ago (she purchased the vine on from Etsy.com at http://www.etsy.com/shop/KatiesKreations4U). Thanks Wendy! BTW the wavy distressed edge was created with a Fiskars tearing ruler - so easy and no messy edge distressing tool needed.

If you're curious, the first post in this series can be found here too from last month:

Thanks for stopping by!
