This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

Large prints...

on papers are a problem for cardmakers. A pattern that looks beautiful for a scrapbook page is often too large to use to make a card. A solution for using up your scraps of large print papers is to use the paper itself as the focal image. Just add a sentiment and some ribbon to complete. Not only does it look pretty, it is really quick to do.

This is genius-I love this idea! I need to go through and find all those big print papers I always neglect.

great idea. I think I need to do this with my stamp club ladies to give them some ideas for using up their larger prints. Very few of them scrapbook and a lot don't like the big prints.
