Gooood morning y'all! Thank you so much for reading my posts this week and for sharing your thoughts in the comments! This has been really fun and not nearly as stressful as I thought it would be. In fact, I'd say it's been downright enjoyable :)
This post is just a random post about a few things I wanted to talk about but couldn't fit into any of my previous posts:
First is a tip: when I print my 4x6 pictures online, I always select the "Borders" option. That way, I can keep the border or trim it if I don't want any border. When I trim the borders, I can line up three 4x6 pictures together without them touching the edge of my 12x12 page. That's a big plus for me because I prefer that my pictures not touch the edge of the page.
Second is a favourite product that I forgot to share yesterday: the Fiskars fingertip craft knife.
Before I discovered this handy little tool, I hardly ever cut anything out of patterned papers. I'm a leftie and using scissors on intricate patterns is a little challenging. Now that I have this tool, I cut patterns out of paper all the time, like in this layout (oh look, more AC stars):
Finally, third is a sketch: I have a hard time scraplifting other people's layouts and I always think that my layout doesn't measure up to the original. On the other hand, I absolutely LOVE sketches. Sketches have enough detail to provide me with a starting point and at the same time allow me to add my own personal spin to the finished layout. LOVE sketches. So, here's my challenge for this week: create a layout based on the sketch below (I used this sketch to create my Swing layout, feature on Wednesday's post):
You can share your sketch layouts in the Write.Click.Scrapbook Flickr gallery. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with :) Thanks again for reading this week..and until next time, keep scrapping!
