I had a lot of fun last night teaching the Watertown Newcomers & Neighbors Club a couple of easy scrapbook layouts. I hope they came away feeling like scrapbooking is really very do-able--you don't need a lot of fancy doo-dads to start turning your pile of photos into something beautiful!
Had a couple of extra kits leftover at the end of the evening, so I made up some additional pages using all the same supplies, to show you a couple of different ways to place pennants on a page and a card. TIP: The trick is to group them rather than spacing them evenly, and use varying widths and lengths and even materials.
Here is a facing page I made to be a double-page spread with the original scrapbook page.
Here's a little different way to do the original page, and then the next one is the vertical version of the page. Those little pennant thingys are addictive! I like this last one best.
And then, while I was unpacking my kit this morning, I was inspired all over again by those pretty Designer Series Paper scraps (these are all from the Summer Smooches DSP). So I made some quick swap cards for convention next week. Since my sewing machine was out, I added some fun crazy stitching to these.
Lots of cute things you can make with just little odds and ends of patterned paper. Don't throw out your scraps without trying this fun technique! Pennants are really in right now.
