Summer Scrapbooking Tips
For today's blog, I wanted to share a really beautiful scrapbooking page that was created by Lisa, who works here at Enchanted Lake. Lisa was inspired by the newest line of Pebbles paper called "Sunny Side". The reason why I fell in love with her page, besides the sheer cuteness of it, is because she uses a couple of techniques which are very simple to do and which add a lot of character to the page.
The first technique I would like to highlight is her use of a Micron pen to do some quick, doodle-like lettering. The simple dots and lines add to the fun and whimsical feel of the page. Microns are great for scrapbooking because they are archival and waterproof.
The last thing Lisa did was add a few dimensional butterfly stickers to one side of the page. Sticker embellishments are an effortless and often overlooked way to add that extra oomph you may be looking for. Most paper lines will have matching, pre-made embellishments to go along with their papers, like these adorable butterflies.
For more great scrapbooking tips, don't be afraid to ask any of the associates at our stores, many of whom are avid paper crafters and scrapbookers, like Lisa.
Hope you enjoyed the tips!
