These pages have been created by our guest scrapbooker for this month, Michelle, inspired by a layout idea from The Weekly Sketch (click here to get yours each week, its free!)
Michelle has matted and layered each photo to make it stand out from the printed paper background. A double mat adds extra emphasis on certain photos. Shes also cleverly made a landscape photo by trimming a normal size 6x4 print horizontally.
I especially love how Michelle has used a pen to highlight the borders, such an effective technique and easy. Simple techniques finish the page off but take very little time and hardly any money.
All the papers are from the August 2022 Scrap Box kit. Using paper strips as embellishments is a great way to use up odd bits and pieces of cardstock
Lindas tip: Keep a folder of cardstock and printed paper offcuts, organised by colour. If you have this close by when you scrapbook, you can pull out and use the contents to add to your page without cutting up a whole 12x12 paper.
These page were completed using a selection of items from the Memories and Photos August 2022 scrapbox kit, (see the whole kit here) The kits are while stocks last, but you can guarantee your kit every month, and save money by joining the Scrapbox Club subscription box
