8 Scrapbook Starting Points Using Designer Scraps

8 Scrapbook Starting Points Using Designer Scraps

I bet you have designer paper scraps stashed away. It's time to pull them out and get creative! I've found that I like to design a layout without a photo in mind and enjoy digging into my leftovers to see what kind of mix I can come up with.

By starting a scrapbook layout with paper scraps from a specific company or kit, it's easy to mix complementary designs and colors. And it's more fun to see how the layouts change once photos, titles and embellishments are added into the mix.

Let's have a closer look at my scrapbook layouts made with designer scraps. All layouts are 8.5 x 11 inches.

    I love all of your layouts. The ankle surgery wasn't cool, though. It was you hubby, right? I hope that all is well now. By the way, your designs are awesome. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!
