The Image Garden software that came with the printer has tons of creative options so I decided to play a little bit. I used the Collage function to add a simple white frame and the date before I sent it to print. It was fast and easy!
So, are you ready for a simple tip on how to stretch your scrapbook paper?
Use stamps and inks to create custom backgrounds on solid cardstock!
I had just a couple of paper pieces left over from the Earth Wind Fire Collection from Quick Quotes. The colors were a great match for the blues and greens of my lakefront picture but there just was not a lot to work with - just scraps! Fortunately, Quick Quotes has a wide selection of PowderPuff Chalking Inks that coordinate with their paper collections.
I used Bora Bora ink and then I emphasized the outdoor theme by choosing a background stamp with lots of trees.
In addition to creating the background, I also stamped the location of the photo along the edge.
Take advantage of all of those coordinating PowderPuff Chalking Inks to stretch your scrapbooking supplies!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today! Susie
