Close To My Heart Spotlight Blog Hop: Scrapbooking Techniques

Hello and welcome to the March edition of the Close to My Heart (CTMH) Spotlight Blog Hop.  This month we are all about scrapbooking techniques!  Wether you are coming from Wendy or this is your first stop, welcome!  You will find the next hopper at the end of this post so sit back, grab your favorite beverage and hop along for inspiration today!

When I first saw the spotlight topic I thought to myself..."scrapbooking techinques?  What the heck is a scrapbooking technique?"  I could have thought of about a thousand stamping techniques but was truely drawing a blank on what technique I use when scrapbooking.  When I scrapbook I just do it and let whatever I do come naturally...basically, I don't think about it.  But when I really thought about it, pretty much anything you do when you scrapbook could be considered a technique...distressing, tearing, mating pictures, layering paper, using patterned paper, decorative scissors, punches, stickers, embellishments...pretty much everything and anything goes (and I have done pretty much everything!).

Today, I want to share a layout that uses a really fun retired paper pack I am hoping most of you have in your stash...Zippidee.  I did alot of layering with different elements to add some texture and dimension to the layout.  I mated the pictures in a solid cardstock and used punches and decorative scissors.  I also used the coordinating My Stickease as borders and to draw the elements together.

---> Now hop on over to Corina to see what technique she is featuring today!
