Quick Tip: Baking Paper

Keep some baking paper close on hand at your scrapbook table. It's perfect for placing your titles and stickers on so you can see how they will look, or if the will fit in the space on your page. If you decide not to use the sticker/alpha you can easily retrun them to their sheet.

Love this Boy

 I've taken a simple patterned paper and added difference with a repeated stamped image to develop a whole new background. I've picked up the red in my sons shoes to add some interest with disruption of what was expected.

Supplies used: Bazzill Cardstock White, Pink Paislee Indigo and Ivy: Paper six and seven, and Phrases Expressions, Cocoa Vanilla: Bohemian Dream Stamps and Endless Summer Stickers, Tim Holtz Distress Ink: Fired Brick and Antique Linen

Gallery Pick - Judy O

 Each month on our Facebook chat we host the albums for the monthly and Cybercrop challenges. There is such a great wealth of inspiration in those albums I wanted to pick some scrapbookers work to share each week. This week we have 3 beautiful layouts from Judy O from our May and June challenges. Judy has such great versatility as a scrapbooker, her designs are lovely and she's great at combining colours and textures.  I hope you're as inspired by these LO's as I am. Thanks Judy for participating!
