Posted on : | By : admin | In : Arts, Entertainment and Music

Today, most of our scrapbooking materials are digitally printed or hand crafted by scrapbook experts. Also, we now have so many equipments available for scrapbooking such as star shaped punchers and embellishment kits to make our work easier, neat and fast. The formed cardboards and those thematic photos with glue backings, cut shapes and of course, those delectable cut-out letters are some of the little stuff that could make your scrapbook delightful. Most of the time, we just cut it out and paste it then it’s all good. Sometimes, we tend to forget the real essence of coming up with a scrapbook.

Scrapbooks are given to persons dearly to us. They may be our sister, mom or a friend. But haven’t you thought for awhile that nothing could be sweeter than giving your friends and families hand crafted designs for their scrapbooks? Designs that are made by your hands from the smallest to the very last detail is the way to go if you want to give that someone special the best gift for her birthday or for a very special occasion. Sometimes, you just want to create something extra-ordinary for a special person in your life who has always been your crying shoulder and your emotion bank, your best friend. Best friends are the people who you always trusted no matter how stupid your actions are. They have remained as your protector and adviser who never get tired of hearing your endless rants and wishes. Oh well, maybe it’s time to give them a simple token of appreciation.

Patterned Paper
Old photographs

Cut out letters from the magazine spelling out your best friend’s name. Make sure to cut the larger letters enough to be seen in a 3 meter distance. Cut out your patterned paper in a 3.5”x11” size. Make it as artistic as you can. Now, paste the alphabet on to your patterned paper and leave a space on the right side for some of your pictures together and some notes. Glue them and you’re done. And in order to maintain its quality, get to your nearest shop and have it laminated. Leave a small space on top at least an inch for the string.

They can use it as a décor on their doors or walls. Either way, they get a good memory of your friendship.

How can a Building Block into a Photo Cube?


Posted on : | By : admin | In : Scrapbooking

The best way to keep the memories alive is through storing them inside a photo album or having a digital scrapbook. Pictures from family vacations, reunions, out of town trips and even parties should always be kept in a secure place. Scanning the photos and finding them in your storage boxes after how many years might need so much time and some might be misplaced.

Photos always show how much fun you have with your family and how important every shared memory is. It really feels good to see your family portrait upon waking up each day for you can get to realize how thankful you are to have them in your life. You can even put them on your office desk so your colleagues could see how much happiness you and your family have. Or just for decorative purposes, either way, they would really look great.

Have you still remembered your daughter’s building blocks? Did you know that they can be turned into a fabulous photo cube?

Photo cube let’s you place the picture on at least five sides of the cube. Just leave the bottom part to serve as your base. The steps in making a pretty photo cube are actually simple. All you need to have is glue, fabric hook-and-loop fasteners and the pictures cut accordingly to the size of the cube. If you have found a bigger cube then that would work best, it doesn’t matter whether there are letters or numbers engraved on it since it will be covered by your family photo.

First, print some pictures or cut the ready ones into the same sizes with the cube’s face. Then, glue one side of the fabric hook-and-loop fasteners onto the photo and the other one in the cube. After which, just stick it on. And just do the same with the other sides of the cube. It’s really fast and easy.

You don’t only get the chance to create another pretty decoration but at the same time, you’re giving value to the memories you and your family has spent. It could be a great Christmas gift too!
