Step Up Your Scrapbook Page

by Brittany Beattie



Step-It-Up Versions

If you have 15 or 20 minutes to create your layout, you can add extra touches to enhance the 10-minute layout.

15- Minute Layout

With five extra minutes, add these twists to your page:

1. Trim a slight border from the top, left, and bottom sides of your layout, and then mat the piece on a 12" x 12" cardstock sheet.

2. Add a phrase sticker to the journaling block rather than hand-writing a sentiment.

3. Staple the right edge of your ribbon.

4. Add three rhinestones overlapping the bottom-right corner of the ribbon strip.

20-Minute Layout

Enhance the 15-minute layout even more with these additional enhancements:

1. Draw a pen border around the top, left, and bottom sides of the white cardstock block.

2. Enhance the journaling block by using letter stickers to spell the name of your photo subject rather than using a phrase sticker.

3. Instead of adding three rhinestones overlapping the ribbon, add an entire strip of gems across the bottom of the ribbon strip.

4. Add an additional phrase sticker below the one already adhered to the right side of the layout.
