Hello Friends,

Yesterday, we talked about moving beyond Paper Hoarders Anonymous. Let's actually use our pretty papers to make cards, scrapbooks and other things.  We all have pictures (memories) lying around waiting to be shared.  Designer Paper is an easy way to pull your scrapbook pages together.  It simplifies the process.

How to Use Designer Paper for Scrapbooking

First, you can simply use a single sheet as the starting point for your scrapbook layout as I did in the Wild About You Scrapbook Page above.  I'll be using the Animal Expedition Designer Paper for all 4 Scrapbook Ideas that I will be sharing today.

To make coordination even simpler, I used the coordinating Animal Outings stamp set to embellish my tag.  Colten and Tenneson were trying to swing as high as a giraffe.

Or you can try using several different paper patterns.  Cut them into different shapes and sizes for a pleasing backdrop for your scrapbook layout.

Another nice thing about using designer paper for scrapbooking is that your designer paper can determine your color scheme.  It takes the guesswork out of choosing colors for your scrapbook page.  I love that Stampin' Up! lists all the colors in their designer paper!  It makes the process even easier.  For instance, the Animal Expedition paper includes Basic Black, Basic Gray, Berry Burst, Call Me Clover, Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Lemon Lime Twist, Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Poppy Parade, Shade Spruce and Whisper White.

For your convenience, I've included a  list of scrapbooking supplies used in today's Scrapbook pages at the bottom of this post.  What about you?  Do you have some designer paper that would look great on your scrapbook pages?


Have a fabulous day,
