Greetings from the Rubber Room!
When I first started scrapbooking way back in the day, I started with 8.5"x 11". I was comfortable with that size. I'd work with that size for years when I was in Graphics with the military. All my friends and scrapbooking buddies were all doing 12"x12" and I sat in awe of all the gorgeous things they were doing. I didn't have room on my rectangular page, but remain true to my convictions...until I through my convictions to the wind and stepped out of my comfort zone. It was about the same time (I think) that CTMH stepped out of their comfort zone and converted all their wood mounted stamps to acrylics. Since then, I have slowly but surely converting my 8.5x11 pages to 12x12.
So here is the original page in the 8.5x11 format. It was one of the first pages I had ever scrapped.
Here is the page I just completed. This is in a 12x12 format. Same pictures, almost the same colors, but this time, I didn't hold back. I had so much fun creating this page. Papers and cardstock are from CTMH and paper flowers are from CTMH as well. Most of the other embellishments, I got from http://www.just4funcrafts.com/.
Jenn there at just4funcrafts is a gem to work with and so very very knowledgeable when it comes to any kind of paper crafting.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Don't forget to leave a comment of two about the artwork you see here. I love hearing from all of you!
So, till next time....
