PROM SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT
I called this Prom scrapbook layout 'In-Crowd - Out crowd', because it allowed me to eke out a bit of humour from the photos I wanted to use, always a goal if I'm honest.
In the UK we have only recently started this 'Prom' thing (I'm kinda jealous we didn't have it in my day), and we do have more than a passing interest in 'High School Musical! This layout - featuring some classic 'B' movie poses, is just a bit of fun to celebrate the 'ups and downs' of your average school Prom. The Management wish it to be known that no students were hurt or indeed dumped during the making of this layout.
BEING THE ENVY OF OTHER SCRAPPERS!
Well I tend to stick out from other scrappers anyway - just by being a guy! Gladys Potter isn't talking about this though. She has helped many scrappers produce stunning work (without taking weeks over it) thanks to her
'Ultimate Scrapping Resource Guide'
THAT'S NOT CRICKET!
No - it's 'Cosmo cricket' 12 x 12 paper, and it's one of several attractive options they offer. You'd be able to see it better if I removed those crying girls.
HANGING BY A THREAD
For my Title journaling I went for four letters on stars - dangled on red thread. These star designs were given to my by the lovely people at
'Scrapbook magazine', who were kind enough to feature an article of mine plus a couple of my layouts. I'm afraid I don't know the manufacturer. Sorry!
HOW ABOUT USING 'CRICUT' FOR YOUR PROM SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT?
A lot's being written about the 'Cricut', as well as the Cricut 'Expression', the higher-powered version right now, and most of it is very good. The only recurring moans seem to be about the Design Studio Software.....
i) Although Cricut doesn't require a computer to use, the DS manual does seem to assume more technical knowledge than it might. That can be frustrating for us 'technophobes'.
ii) You can burn through a lot of cardstock while you're 'trial and erroring'!
(iii) Lack of really helpful video tutorial support. I had to search around the web.
Fortunately Brandi Gore, a very experienced Scrapbooker has put together THE manual for using the Design Studio Software both for
- the manual that many people think should have come with the product in the first place. Get yourself a copy and save yourself a pile of frustration!
ALL THAT GLITTERS....
Pardon the misquote, but I tried my hand at using some Glue Dots red glitter for my journaling. I wrote the words with my Zig Glue Pen, and then poured the glitter all over. Next time I make a Prom scrapbook layout I'll catch more and vacuum less. I'll have to practise some more I guess! (Does that rhyme?)
