Pin It

So as the week has been going on I was taking a few minutes each day and adding a bit to the 6" x 6" Scrapbook pages. You remember the pages I did earlier this week? Just click here to be reminded of how awful they are!!! They are proof that what you picture in your mind can sometimes be difficult to see on paper. I set them aside and thought I'd just start fresh.

These were much easier to make and quicker too! I think I do much better without a plan! I need to stop listening to the pictures in my head!! LOL

These have room for photos and sentiment. I kept it simple too! Notice how I got the "joy" stamp SO perfectly centered??? I cheated. I stamped it on white card stock and cut it out on the paper cutter. I tried to stamp it and even with the Stamp-a-ma-jig I couldn't get it the way I wanted it. SO the next best thing was to "fake it!" Hey, it works for me!!! The "joy" and "tree" images are only taped in place on the dotted paper side This allows for a photo to be attached much easier. It can be taped down later or left as it is. If it's going in an album with sleeve protectors than it can just be left as it is.

I just noticed I forgot to add the other two white brads to the left page. DUH!!! Once I'm done posting here I will be adding those. If you'd like to see what it looks like with the white brads you could just use a bit of white out on your screen in the proper places!!! LOL Just kidding, don't really do it!!! I'm not sure if that would come off your screen or not. I would have to say it wouldn't but I'm not going to try it to find out.

The brads are actually silver. I put then in a clothespin and heated it up and then dipped it in white embossing powder and heated it just a bit more. Simple as that!! Whatever color EP you have you can have a brad to match!!!

So here it is in al it's brightness! My pages for the scrapbook swap. Now all I need to do is duplicate them so I can swap them!!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by!

Ingenuity should never be mistaken for faking :)
