The Perfect Collection with Shimelle Laine

Earlier this summer I purchased a stand alone video class by Shimelle Laine that she taught at True Scrap 3.

It is called The Perfect Collection: Using Your Favorite Collection Pack to the Very Last Scrap. She taught me how to take a paper collection and make beautiful, meaningful pages with almost every sheet of it. Did I mention I got about 16 pages done in about a week???
I chose a stack of summer paper from Michaels because it was bright and fun and I just felt like scrapping alot of old summer photos and stories. Here are my completed but naked layouts:

mostly single pages
a few double pages
even though these two pages weren't created as a double because the paper coordinated I could make them work together

I can't tell you how much fun I had making all these pages and reliving the wonderful memories as I created them. You can do this too simply by purchasing the video from the True Scrap archive.

  1. Love this! So glad you put to use your new info. :) Well done!!!!

  2. Love these layouts. Sometimes it is easier to just gather information than to actually use it. It is great to see you put your inspiration to use.
