So, my first challenge (and feel free to play along too)
was to make a page using the current trend of banners. Here's what I set myself:
- Use a banner on the page,
- Other than the base cardstock, use only scraps from my small scraps box*
- use a minimum of other embellishments from my stash.
this page on Christmas 2006 for my daughter's album is what I came up with. Other than scraps, I only used punches, alphabet stamps and a bit of ribbon.
easy and fun! The bright colours really make it.
* A note on my scraps organization: I have always been one to keep the smallest of scraps, and the collection has grown . .. and grown . . . I currently keep scraps in two different places, depending on their size, and divided according to colour.
The other place for my larger scraps is a folder I made out of page protectors.(ones from a cheaper, older album that aren't quite 12") Some I have cut in half and zigzagged one and a half together in a co-ordinating colour to make pockets. I have added appropriate coloured ribbon as a tab on each pocket. The whole thing is held together by rings.
