4 Tutorials to Freshen Up Your Layout

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 09/23/2021 - 22:00

In this post I'll be sharing four tutorials that can help you add a little flair to your layout. All these layouts are ones that I use frequently myself and hopefully at least one of them will be new to you.

The first one is quite simple, but one that I use on pretty much every layout I make, and that's adding a simple border to a photo. You can also use this same technique to turn a stamp like element into a sticker, which I often prefer on my layout as well.

Over the summer I took some time to consider scrapbooking myths here on the blog. One of the myths I included was needing to have perfect pictures to scrapbook. There can certainly be a lot of pressure to get that perfect photo so you can include it in the scrapbook. But most of us are probably working with less than ideal photos most of the time.

By Marisa Lerin Sun, 09/05/2021 - 22:00

I have been really feeling the mixed media look lately, definitely working on more for the future. I love using these random pieces on my layouts, and the freedom of not really having any purpose for my layout except putting on things that catch my eye. Although first I have to create these graphics that will inspire me later on.
