Paper Crafting Tip #38: Easy Photo Corners

Sorry it's been so long since my last post.  Life has been crazy, and I've been sick, but I'm back!

Here's a quick little photo corner how-to:

1.  Punch or cut out a square. (1-2 inches is usually a good size to start with, but you can play around
     with the size once you get the hang of it.)

2.  Cut the square in half diagonally, so that you have two triangles.

3.  Line up the triangles so they match back-to-back.

4.  Cut a strip off the long edge.  The width of the strip that you cut will determine the width of the photo

5.  Now, align the edges so that they form a corner. 

6.  Adhere to your page, and you're done!

Here is one of the layouts I made using this technique.  If you have any questions, please email or post a comment.  Enjoy!

Paper Crafting Tip #37: Title Tip

Mom & Me Luncheon(L)Mom & Me Luncheon (R) 

I have a great tip for you that is sure to make your titles more fun and
interesting.  Instead of using just one font for your titles, try using
2 or 3.  In this layout, I used stamps (Hero Arts) for the main title
and diecuts (Cricut) for the supporting title.  Each font is different
and adds a fun touch to the layout.  If your title is more serious, you
can choose other appropriate fonts.  Serious does not mean boring.  Try
this tip, and add some spice to your next layout.  Happy Crafting!
