        Well, that DOES require some thought!!! The coolest? Honestly, it’s something so simple, but it makes such a difference: layering. Not just piling one thing on top of another, but layering with dimension by using packaging or foam tape to actually raise the elements. Not only does this (along with a bit of distressing and inking) give my pages a more completed look, but it gives me plenty of room to tuck in bits and bobs!

          Yep, I LOVE that, Peggy!

          I have two. One is from Robin- take pictures as you design! I take at least 10 pics while I design every project. It gives you great perspective to look at your options before you glue everything down.

          The other is faux stitching- love the look, hate the work of sewing.

            Yes, I love your faux stitching. THAT takes a ton of patience, doesn’t it?

              I love Rae’s faux stitching! I have tried it a time or two, but I need to keep practicing! Another really cool scrapbooking trick I learned from Jan. She showed us how to make paper ruffles to trim around circles. I have used that technique so many times! Love it!

                So true, Cheryl! I love Jan’s mitering technique. I do use that often as well.

                  Thank you!

                  Well, Rae, I’m surprised because I thought that was real stitching on your rolled card! So, how did you do it?

                    Maggie shared one trick awhile back. Rather than fussy cut, paint with water and then the paper tears right where you painted.

                      LOL! HELL NO! I don’t have the patience. I use one of those little sewing wheels that make holes, then I poke each hole with a paper piercer to make it bigger, then just drag a marker to trace the holes. 🙂

                        That is a good idea.

                          Really?! I love that idea, Rae! Now I wanna try it!
