DON'T LEAVE THIS PAGE until you look down below at some of my recent FUN AND UNUSUAL scrapbook pages!
I took one of the Big Picture Classes in May which was to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day (or maybe it was National Stamping Month??? - can't remember for sure!).... all I know is that it was FREE and lasted all day long and I loved it!
We had several challenges over a 10 hour period. What a blast! You would listen to the teacher, read her ideas and suggestions, and then go make your project, post it on the Big Picture Classes gallery, and be entered to win something fun and neat.
I was just looking at the different scrapbook pages that I made for some of the challenges.... and realized how fun they were and how "outside the box" they were!
I probably never would have thought of them on my own!
So thought I'd show them to you, just for the sake of "ideas and inspiration". I'm not adding how I did them, or cutting recipes, measurements, etc. I just wanted to show you the theme or idea that may just get you inspired to make a page or pages using some of your photos that are sitting in a box.
On this challenge, we were to make a page doing some handwritten journaling and talk about a relationship.
The next challenge was to make up a "bucket list" for the summer. What a great idea!
Never would have thought of it! So I ran to my little digital scrapbooking program on my computer (an old one I downloaded years ago), made up a quick little page, printed it out, and voila! I was done! This goes to show how fun digital scrapbooking can be.
Another fun challenge was to make a page showing the last 3 pictures we took with our cell phone!
Again, I NEVER would have thought of this! I literally blew this page out in about 10 minutes. I matted the photos, used some premade tags that I had in my stash, wrote on them, made a little title, added a couple of strips of paper top and bottom, and voila! was done!
I got carried away with "the last 3" so also put the last three friends I made and the last three meals I made. Oh... I see I also remembered to put a date on there. Just a neat little memory to keep.
I'll show you one more.. this was fun! We were to make a page using a technique we've never used before.
Then quickly chose one photo that would kind of match... cut the star out of my Cricut machine, added the date, and voila! done in about 10 minutes!
Boy it was HARD not to add lace!!
OK.. that's it for today. I just thought these was such neat, innovative ideas from BIG PICTURE CLASSES. I plan to take more classes down the road. Some are free. Some are a one-time only class and some may be a 4 to 6 week class.
(Note: Close to My Heart is pairing (once again) with Big Picture Classes for another Pajama party on July 31st. Go HERE to find out how to register and I think it's free. It will be covering the new Close to My Heart "Artbooking" Cricut cartridge and its many uses.)
Have fun scrapbooking "out of the box"!!
