Tutorial - Alter a book for Scrapbooking 1 by Lisa Moorefield

Lisa Moorefield has done something that I long to do, but am scared of: altering a book to use for scrapbooking! Yes, taking a perfectly good book (albeit a vintage one), ripping pages out, and then using the book as a scrapbook album. She explains how she went about it. She was also hesitant to “destroy” a book, but I think she is very happy with the result.

Using Kids Artwork at Buttons and Paint

Is your house overflowing with your kids’ artwork? Mine certainly is, and I’ve been collecting ideas on how to use them in projects instead of just tossing them out. Over and Buttons and Paint they are sharing a few ideas. You can cut shapes out from the art to use as embellishments on cards. These could easily be used as page embellishments too, you could even use them on a page about how much your child enjoys making art.

Scrapbook Organization - How to Organize Rubber Stamps

Scarlata shares how she cataloged her rubber and acrylic stamps in a spiral bound journal. She used a solid journal with sturdy kraft covers, and thick page to prevent ink bleeding through. Then she went through and stamped her images throughout the book, using the same color ink for stamps that came in a set, and noting the set name below. That way she can easily flick through and see what stamps she has when looking for a design for a project. This is a helpful idea that you can complete in a Sunday afternoon!

Scrapbook Inspirations from Home Decor - Triangle Wall(original source: Outlaw Creative)

Bear with me a moment. I know this is a scrapbooking blog, and that’s a home decor project above. But I think this technique could easily be transferred to a scrapbook page! It sure would make an interesting background. All you’d have to do is use low tack tape, tape up a design on your card stock, then fill in the triangles (or whatever shape) with paint, or ink, or markers, or other media like watercolor paints or gelatos. Anyone want to join me in trying? I’ll post my result on Saturday.
