oh baby baby

I have a secret...actually, it's more of a tip. I'll share it at the end (this is really my way of making sure you look at my whole post--hee hee).

Quick and easy layout here... I used the other We R Memory Keepers Lucky 8 punch that I received for my birthday...this one creates a large circle shape and the punch is called Tatted Doily (it's my favorite). I love being able to create large, shaped, die-cut paper out of any paper I own.  If you missed my first post about the other shape I have, click here.

There is a secret journaling tag behind the top photo, but that is still not my secret.

Here is the secret...the blue, pink, orange plaid paper that I used for my background frame. I didn't "waste" the whole sheet of paper as my background.

Here is my tip...
as you can see in this photo above, using a ruler, I framed out the edge of the paper (1 inch on all sides). I cut out the center square and just used the frame as my background. This way I still have a 10" x 10" sheet of this paper.

Here is what the layout looks like from the back.

This a great "trick" for paper you love dearly and don't want to part with. Do you have any of those?

Here is another secret...I do.
