scrapbooking and living the empty nest life
Great article! Thanks for sharing your beautiful layouts. I'm a fairly new to scrapbooking and I found your blog a few weeks ago. Very inspiring work. And I like your scrap space too! Michelle
Welcome! So glad you stopped by, and thanks for your kind words. The online scrapping community is very friendly, so feel free to ask questions and share your work. We love this amazing hobby!
Oh thanks! I have a question but didn't feel right asking in the first comment. I'm sorry I don't remember which blog this was, either organizing or one of the scrap room posts, but you referred to 12x12 paper with a or b sides. I may not have the exactvwording. But anyway, on ddouble sided paper , what would be the main side? I know my personal preference is to use muted type papers as my initial background. I like patterns, but I take a long time to decide what I'll use. Along with taking so long to decide everything else. It can take me weeks of thinking and moving pics around. I'm sorry I've taken so long explain. Thanks for your kind welcome. Michelle
That is a great question! It comes up frequently. The A side (front or main side) of patterned paper is usually more patterned, with more colors and busier. It captures your attention but can be a challenge to use, depending on your personal preferences. The B sides are usually less busy, with fewer colors. They often make great backgrounds for layouts. One good strategy is to combine an A side with several coordinating B sides, so the papers don't overwhelm your photos. Funny you should ask, today I've been working on my next online class, all about using patterned paper like a pro! Hope this helps.
Thanks Sue! I've been wanting to look into classes but I'm not tech savvy. I don't know how to load layouts. I will check out your classes. Thanks again for answering and I look forward to seeing more of your work. Michelle
Off to check it out. :)
