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!
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.
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!
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. 🙂
