Nicole posted that great thread for Scrapbook Saves, where our scrapbooking projects, equipment, etc. "saved the day". My fave is that faux camisole lace Nicole made.

So now, let's share how we've used non-scrappy items to make our layouts, pages, etc.

Here's some of my fave tips/tricks/non-scrappy items -

Dental Floss - this is amazing to wiggle beneath pics or embellies that you want to move after you've put adhesive on them. It has saved many pages for me from being ruined, or tearing the paper.

Large plates - I only have the baby cricut so I'm limited to under 6 inches, and my circle cutter (Fiskars) only cuts up to 8 inches. Some layouts need a larger circle, so I use a large plate & a pencil to draw my circle then cut it out of the paper or to place my brads, flowers, or other items on top the drawn line to make my circle.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!

I've used bubble wrap as a stamp with paint and with ink.

I've also done the dental floss and the plate tricks.

I used to do the plate thing too. Nothing comes to mind at the moment but I'll think on it.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

I've used the plate trick and the dental floss trick

Another trick if you are using any sort of different colored core paper that you can sand is to put any sort of template under the paper and sand over it. Jaylen got a sheet of magnetic alpha letters for the fridge that the letters popped out of so it left the letter spaces like a template....I put that under the paper I used on her ABCMouse page and sanded over the paper (it wasn't the best color difference to see it on the page in pictures, you can see it fairly clear in the lower right).
