Q: I have one and two page layouts, but how do I go about filling in empty spaces in the albums?
A: When you reach a one page layout and have the next page to do, you can turn that one page into two pages by simply creating a page that pulls the theme and ideas of the first together using such things as extra embellishments and journaling cards and tags to continue the theme.
Q: My photo on my layout looks so plain. What can I do about that?
A: You can use a piece of cardstock or patterned paper to mat the photo and draw attention to it or you can use a distresser on the edges to give them their own new look.
Q: I’ve read where things like tape and papers that are archival safe, but what about the pens that I’m using for my journaling?
