Do you see themed scrapbook collections and are not quite sure what you would do with them if you bought them? This is a problem for me, especially since I am a scrapbooker that does not have kids. Here’s my tip: Think outside the collection. I have to do this a lot with my scrapbooking and it’s fun once you get in the habit of it.
My example layouts today show how you can create non-school layouts with school themed collections. I created layouts around some of the embellishments, instead of the entire collection.
My first layout is about a Nook color e-reader. Perfect subject for school paper with a book theme!
My second layout I created with a play on the word “measure” and the ruler die-cut.
So challenge yourself to create something out of collections that you wouldn’t usually use. You may just make your supplies go farther too!
Just leave a comment on this post letting us know what ideas you have for scrapbooking with school themed collections.
