It's All in the Presentation

Here are some more tips from the team about how to layout your pages:

  • Keep your caption letters from looking crooked by adhering them on the edge of a ruler. Position ruler so letters are straight and centered then press the letters onto the page while lifting off ruler. Voila!
  • Z eyes have it! Add instant visual appeal to your layout by creating a "Z" pattern that encourages the eye to move naturally across your scrapped page.
  • Create a weathered look with chipboard – the popular new way to enhance your scrapped pages! Try rubbing the edges with distress inks, or use a crackle medium finish. Chipboard is heavy enough to withstand mediums such as paints and crackle and it's easy enough for even the most inexperienced novice to use. First, apply a base color on the chipboard. This will show through when the top layer cracks. Then follow the manufacturer's directions for applying the crackle medium. Finally, apply your topcoat of paint. Once the paints dry, embellish the crackled chipboard with rub-ons, stickers and more.
  • Keep an eye on color. Visit your local linen store seasonally to see what color combinations are hot for the season.
