Today, we are on installment #30 of Use IT Tuesday! YAHOO!! And have I got a treat for you :O) I have been using all of my “ugly paper”!!! Ok, really, the paper is not ugly, and there is nothing wrong with it (I don’t want to hurt the paper’s feelings!!) But, it just. . . let’s just say. . . it isn’t my favorite paper.
So today will be part 1 of the using up the “not so pretty paper”. . .
IDEA #1 Use that ugly paper!! I know you all have some paper sitting there that you think “oh no!” Well think of a way to use some of it!! For my project today, I used 4 sheets of my ugly paper. I am sure you can use some of yours too!!
IDEA #2 Scrap some Scraps!! Your layouts don’t always have to be just photos. Put some real life scraps on there.
I pulled out some memorabilia from my to be scrapped pile and just scrapped it. I didn’t use ANY photos at all today. It is all really plain and simple, but they are DONE, which is what matters. :O) I did a lot of journaling and the memories are there.
This first page is a layout I made of my planner covers from the last two semesters. I made both of the covers (and showed them on my bloggity as I made them) and now I can keep them forever.
The next four pages are certificates I received from Stampin’ UP during my first year as a demonstrator. My year anniversary was in August so I did a lot of journaling about what the last year of being a demonstrator has meant to me. And of course, you know, I HAVE LOVED IT!!! I hope to make a career out of it.
