Tips & Techniques!

We had a great class last night and everyone was quite impressed with a simple technique I taught them. The look of paper ripped out of a notebook can be a fun addition to your scrapbook pages. There is an easy way to achieve this look using regular scrapbook paper.

Choose your paper and punch small holes along one side of the paper. Make them about ¼-inch in from the edge of the paper. I used the large hole punch on my Crop-a-Dile.

Rip across the holes (being careful not to make it too perfect) and you have your 'notebook' paper!

You can take the look to another level by distressing your paper. Wrinkle your paper slightly and flatten with your hand. Take a brown ink pad and add ink lightly across the surface. The ink will only touch the raised areas. You can also add ink to the edges for a completed look. Add a title, a photo or some journaling and you have a great element to add to your page!
