Hi Macy,
I always listen to soft music when preparing the best of making scrapbook and cardmaking. It gives me the perfect relaxing mood of understanding creating and designing. Give myself a theme and remember wonderful memories. That is my very first step to begin the scrapbooking / cardmaking tips.
Try to be more simple, not to be too complicated, and make it look elegant. Then sketch an outline with your own imaginative to have it look more constructive picture idea. Try to have not more than matching three colors. Then followed by little embelishments with 3D effect to make it more lively. I hope this helps with the tips and techniques.

Am I first? Hehe!

Hm, my favorite scrapbooking tips & techniques.. since I'm new to paper scrapping (been doing it digi since 2007), I don't have any tips to share, but for those who are on a budget (like college students like me), I'd suggest making your own embellies using papers. It can be scrapbook-brand papers or your favorite wrapping papers (a.e.i.o.u studio, etc). I love doodling, and I think we can make unique embellies using our own hands and creativity. If you love butterflies, draw a basic butterfly shape on the back of a paper you want to use, then cut it out using a blade or a pair of scissors. Add some bling or maybe "glitterize" it a bit, or add buttons or some pretty Prima flowers. Stylize it, make it your own. You'll be amazed at what you could actually make yourself.

Happy creating :)

Oh btw, I linked you up on my blog!

Thanks so much for the chance.

I like to make LO with a a torn paper. It is a simple way to add texture to the LO. it is so simple to create this torn paper. You hold any size of paper on your left hand and tear the paper using your right hand. Make sure you tear the paper toward yourself(this is a part where you don't want to use it). The next thing is to spray the paper with water. Then you crumple it (water is the best way to crumple the paper). After that you iron the paper and sand it using sanding block. Last but not least add some color to the torn edges or leave it just like that. It depend on your creativity...mine i like to add with paint into it....

i have already link you to my site.

Good Day Macy,

I have always pick the different techniques in scrapbooking and cardmaking.

I love distress ink technique as many ways can be done which look more antique with the combination of different colors. in this technique, I would also apply on the stamping method with few color mix and match. Flowers can be distress inked softly on the petals.

BesIdes this, I also like to watercolor the backgournd by using sponging different combination colors that works well and then stamped by my choices of stamp pictures.

I do use the layering techniques by using patterned availabie papers like Basicgrey, Doodlebugs etc which can be bordered as well as cut into different shapes.

And then I always use some embellishments to beautify them as the final touch of my project.

Wow, I love scrapbooking and cardmaking.!

And thanks for the great chance for winning the giveaways...
