Just the Paper Mam

What is the number one thing you have in your scrapbook supplies? What is the one item that you have the most of?


On this layout I basically only used paper. There is a lot you can do with paper. You can cut out shapes, distress it, punch it, fold it, sew on it... and more. I chose 2 double sided patterned papers and 2 sheets of elements - all from the FABULOUS Cosmo Cricket line - boyfriend.

After choosing gray as my solid background base, I cut and distressed my paper edges. Doing this adds some dimension to your layout without adding bulk. I also distressed the elements that I cut out.

Here's a close up of the cut out elements. I used some foam squares under the Happy Place element for even more dimension:

And the foam American Crafts Thickers I used for my title also add dimension without the added bulk:
