Tuesday Tip...

It's time again for another Tuesday Tip! Do your layouts suffer from what I call the "plop, plop, fiz, fiz, oh what a mess this is" syndrome? This is where everything is just plopped here and there on the pages, and stuff just seems to be floating in space.

Whether you use stickers, flowers, 3-D embellishments, or paper piecings it is important to always anchor the item to something else on the page. Don't be afraid to let the embellishment overlap on a photo mat a little. This helps to make the items on your page flow nicely and give it some balance. If you have one lonely sticker floating by itself in a blank spot, it draws the eye there immediately and you don't see a nice flowing layout. I hope I am explaining this understandably. ;)

Have a great day and happy scrapping to all!


  1. I love your tip Tuesdays. You are able to give the "common sense that you never think about" answer to everything. Thank you! I cant wait for next Tuesday.
