If you’re like me, you’ll have a tonne of photos from Christmas Day you want to add to your album, but the dilema is which ones to use + which to leave out?

It’s great to make use of all those snaps of little details in your layouts – it helps build up a picture of the ambience of the occasion. So, Question – how to use lots of photos in a LO, without looking overcrowded? Answer – Select about 16 or so interesting photos, print a contact sheet onto a good quality photo paper, then trim them all with a small white border [I love to trim mine so they look like mini polaroid photos].

You can see I’ve arranged the photos in a scattered fashion – I want it to look like a bunch of photos almost dropped on the page. Notice I’ve ‘contained’ them inside the smaller piece of the PP, so that there’s still quite a bit of ‘white space’ on the background where the eye can ‘rest’, despite the large number of photos on the page.

Here’s how I did it:

 

Hope this helps you get all those Christmas photos scrapped!

Basic Grey Lemonade range + my pink & cream Cupcakes… what better match?

 When I saw the luscious lime green, pink & yellow colour pallette of the Lemonade PPs, I knew I had to scrap my cupcake photos!
Q – How to fit lots of photos + lots of gorgeous patterns into one simple, clean LO??
A – Grids!!  

I cropped my photos to square ratios, then chose the print multiples, contact sheet option in the print dialogue box, & out came 5 perfect 2″ x 2″ square photos!

Here’s my video – enjoy! ;]

 

btw, I did some digi work on the photos prior to printing – a little square border + text. I was inspired by this great Cathy Zielski tutorial [watch it, you’ll love it!].

e Basic Grey has come up with a wonderful concept – punch out & fold up a tiny gift box, place a tiny gift inside [chocolate is good…, jewellery is also good!], and you’re done!
 

 

e I’ve put together this little video so you’ll have no trouble assembling these BG Lemonade favour boxes – pause & rewind q and we can work on them together!

 

e They’re such good value – so beautifully decorated, inside and out, with lots of bonus die cuts – flowers, tags + journalling spots. Head over here to BlueMoonScrapbooking.com to buy your own! ;]

My latest project – an Art Journal I created for my wonderful daughter. It’s a really simply, low cost project that gives her plenty of scope to be creative & record some of the gazillion things going round in her little head!
I’ve used the fab Zutter Bind-it-All Machine, plus a piece of Basic Grey Urban Prairie Weather Vane PP (this PP actually inspired the whole project! It just screams doodling to me!!), plus the Basic Grey Birdcage Stamps (LOVE!) and Heidi Swapp Clear Alpha Stamps + Making Memories Puffy Alphas.
[I’ve linked these images straight their listing instore, just for your shopping pleasure!]

I wanted to keep this project simple & sturdy – it’s going to go from bookshelf to backpack to messy desk to the floor!! So it can’t have too many ‘bits’ hanging off it!!

 I hope you like, & if you’re thinking of investing in a Bind-it-All, (or you have one stashed in the back of your cupboard!!) l I hope you get a clear idea of how the machine can work for you.

Enjoy ;]

 

Thanks for watching!
