We are so excited about this weeks scrapbook page layout SIMPLY SCENIC! Inspired by mother nature herself, this layout offers a way to create beautiful pages, filled with photos and all the embellishments you could want!
A Day in the Wilds uses cropping techniques, clear rubber stamps, tags, stitching both stamped and hand stitched, embellishments and torn paper edges to complete an amazingly rich design.
To record the date on the coordinating tag the Let’s Call it a Date clear rubber stamps are used. Zig zag stitches are created using the Sew Artsy clear rubber stamps. On this page additional photo elements have been added, but photos can also be cropped into the triangular shapes that stand as sentinels on each side of the page helping to enhance the scenic wonder of the layout.
This page is enhanced with stitching, both done by hand and also stamped onto the page using the Sew Artsy clear rubber stamps.
Have a great TUESDAY and happy STAMPING!!!

So last week our scrapbook layout suggestion was to use select video game screens to design your scrapbook layouts in unique and fun ways. Below we have featured the layout patterned after the popular game Tetris.
The above scrapbook page uses the Triple Tetris scrapbook page layout and is combined with the Zoo Critters clear rubber stamps to enhance the zoo theme of the page.

An interactive scrapbook page is a page that has moveable parts. In this article you will learn how to create elements that slide across your page. Butterflies can fly over a photo, a horse can gallop across the bottom and pets can stroll along under a title or image. To do this follow the steps below:
Butterfly Beauties or a clear stamp of your choice
In the images above you can easily see how the butterfly moves across the arch.
First, create a border that will go across your page or over design elements. This border may be slightly curved or perfectly horizontal and should be no less than 1″ wide.
Cut 2 paralell lines about 1/4″ apart through the center of your border. This is where your interactive image will be moving. Cut a 1″ x 1/4″ strip of paper and set aside.
Next stamp your interactive image with your clear rubber stamps and color it in as desired. Cut the image out close to the lines.
To create the interactive feature, take the small strip of 1/4″ paper and feed it vertically through the two horizontal strips you cut. You should have a portion sticking out on the top and the bottom of the narrow paper strip formed by the two slits. Place a small amount of glue or a small piece of double sided tape on both tabs. Carefully place the rubber stamped image over the tabs. You should now be able to slide the image the paper strip.
Secure the border to the page being careful not to glue down the narrow strip that the interactive piece slides on. Once secure you are done!
VARIATIONS 1: Cut a single slit through the center of the border – it will need to be fairly wide. Secure the end of a strip of cardstock to your interactive element. Slide the strip into the slit. This will allow the image to not only move across the page but it can also be removed.
VARIATION 2: Cut two tiny slits on either end of your border, the width of a ribbon. Thread the ribbon through the slits forming attaching the ends together on the back side so that they will slide. Secure the interactive element to the ribbon. Depending on the width your ribbon spans this method may not slide as effectively as some of the other methods.

I love rubber stamping with my clear stamps. Since I am always looking for new ideas, I am usually trying new things all the time. A couple days ago I decided to enhance my paper scrapbooking flowers with rubber stamps. I had a cute clear rubber stamp set called Big Blooms that hosted the precise design I wanted to add. You will find many fun flowers to use among your flower rubber stamps.
I simply chose a darker color that complemented the flower and stamped a smaller flower upon it. Once attached with a brad the effect was complete. Try it out. You’ll love it.
