While I am not giving up scrapbooking by any means. I have recently come to the realizations that blogging is very similar to a scrapbook. I can post a picture, write a story and wa-la... virtual scrapbook. Others can come and view what I've done and where I've been just like opening the pages of scrapbook. This blog is my way to be able to share more, with more people, more often by keeping up with this blog on a weekly basis.
But what Scrapbooking Blog Post would be complete without a Scrapbooking tip??? I have discovered making a basket weave pattern for a border or edge on my pages. I simply take one of my hole punches, and punch evenly spaced holes in my paper. Then I take a narrow strip of paper, in a different color, and weave my way in and out of the holes to give it the basket weave look. I have sometimes used ribbon to weave on the paper and this gives another nice look, and adds some texture to your design. (I think the ribbon can make it look cute and "girly" too.) Happy Scrapbooking!!!
