Inspiration post by Margaret - What you can do if you don't have scrapbook paper to match your photos

It is my turn to do the inspiration post.  I have been trying to think what to do as others have been doing some great techniques but I don't know many.
I decided to share some scrapbook pages I made a while ago before I had my blog.  I think they were for scrapbook shop competitions.

If you don't have scrapbook paper to go with your photos there are lots of things you can do.  I am showing two.

1.  I scanned Sarah's dress and printed it onto card, added photos, stickers, staples, etc.

2.  For this one I stamped the page.

These are two simple layouts that anyone can do.

There are other things you can do, painting, masking, etc.     I will try to do a new page for the next inspiration post I have to do in August.

You have 6 more days to join in the card challenge No 91 
and 21 more days to join in the scrapbook challenge No 92
Just link up your entry on the left hand side bare.   Here are the sketches as a reminder..

There will be a new card sketch on 15 June.


  1. These backgrounds are fantastic Margaret! What a neat idea to scan the dress and use that as your background. Thanks for sharing these ideas.
