Y is for Scrapbooking With Your Favorite Fonts

I love looking for free fonts when I make my scrapbooking pages. When I had a printer, I would type out my title using a favorite font on my acid free paper. Then I would add it to my page. Here are some examples of free fonts that start with Y.

April 27 – Letter W for Wonderful Weddings

Valentine'S Day, The 14Th Of February, March 8W is for Scrapbooking Wonderful Weddings

 

What is there to say about scrapbooking weddings? It is the perfect occasion to take tons of pictures. I joyfully then make an album for the happy couple. It is a gift of love. At one wedding, the photographer ended up shadowing me because I knew all the important people that needed to be included. I kept telling him, that if I was in his way, please let me know and I would move. He just thanked me for knowing what shots were important. Weddings are a fun time to get natural shots of the happy occasion.




Blissful gatherings
Filled with lots of joy and love
A new beginning

 

April 26 – Scrapbook Letter V for Vellum

V is for Scrapbooking With Vellum 

I don’t use vellum all that often, but it is beautiful and softens a scrapbook page. Vellum is a delicate paper you can see through. Vellum can curl up if you don’t keep it stored properly. You need to attach vellum differently than other papers because of its opaque nature. It comes in a variety of colors, weights, and even textures. With the right printer, you can even print on vellum.

I have used vellum as the entire background paper as well as pieces on a page. Vellum adds highlights without adding bulk to your scrapbook page.  I have cut clean edges and also torn edges to give a different look. You can even use vellum to frame out a picture covering parts you don’t care for. A thicker vellum can even be used as a pocket to add ephemera to a page.

S is for Scrapbooking with Stickers and Stamps

Scrapbooks wouldn’t be complete without the addition of appropriate stickers and stamps. I have learned to only use acid free stickers because the others mess up the page. Stamps are more time consuming, but allow the page to be very unique because you get to choose the colors.

Sometimes stamps and stickers are used as embellishments, backgrounds,  borders, and  titles. However you chose to use them, they add personality to the page.

Stickers add to the page idea of moving.

Stamps can add a personal touch.

Add special items
To personalize the page
The results are great

April 20 – Scrapbooking Letter Q for Quilt Patterns

letter q png Q is for Scrapbooking with Quilt Patterns

I was always looking for new layouts when I made my scrapbooks. I was making multiple books for family and friends of the same events. Silly me, did not repeat the layouts on everyone’s pages. When I found pages that looked like quilts, I was hooked. Many I found that others had done, only used a few pictures. While they are beautiful, I typically like to add more pictures to my pages.
