Welcome to my Beginner Scrapbook Project known as 5Ws.
The Ws standing for the who, when, where and why of Scrapbooking and The Class will be run every Wednesday here.
Today’s technique is making your own paper templates. Scrapbook paper comes in square sheets 12”x12” and we usually cut them down into smaller rectangular shapes but that can quickly become boring both visually and creatively.
Some paper company sell shaped sheets to alleviate this but not everyone does and often they cost extra and never in the perfect colour or pattern you wanted. To get around that we will make some templates that we will use throughout the course so it is worth having them to hand.
so using the template instructions, I used the Sketch in the PDF to make the following two layouts:
I rotated the sketch sideways to allow me to use a landscape photo
I wish you creative joy in this part of scrapbooking as this is where you make choices about all the pretty parts of scrapbooking.
ps my video experiment was a disaster so hoping i can add it tomorrow...
