Friday’s Five: Trends You Can Incorporate Into Your Scrapbook Pages

#1 Chalkboards 

Try using pastels or chalks, white sharpies, milk paints or chalk inks on your dark paper backgrounds for a fun chalkboard effect.

#2 Dress Forms 

Vintage dress forms can bring a very feminine feel to your layouts.  Try using the shape of their silhouette for a bolder look or in a beautiful background for a softer feel.

#3 Embroidery 

Adding a few floss stitches to your pages—or even an entire design can really liven things up!

#4 Buntings

These little beauties can offer a little bit of flair to your celebration layouts or a nice flowy effect perfect for those Spring-time pages.

#5 Ornate Frames 

Just as they are perfect for framing your prized art possesions in your home—ornate frames can also draw attention to those beautiful photos on your scrapbook layouts!

Thanks to everyone who participated in my little riddle I stated in the comments I believe I may have tried to be a little too tricky!  So because no one came up with the answer I was looking for--instead I took everyone's name who offered up a guess and entered it in a drawing. The winner of the issue of Green Craft Magazine was MISCELLANEA.  Congratulations!  Please contact me at with your mailing information and I'll get that out to you right away!
