Scrapbooking Classics making a comeback!

a classic layout from Scrapgirls

But really the classics never went out of style! Just like the little black dress for fashion, some techniques are timeless.

Scrapbooking classics are always in style--especially when you want to do pages on a budget. I have been scrapping about 17 years now and have seen a LOT of trends--and can pick out the classics too:

brads and ribbons
journaling and titling by hand
handcut shapes and paper piecing by hand
color blocking
paper folding with your scraps
computer journaling
computer border printing and titling

I heard someone comment yesterday they were never going to scrapbook because it costs too much! ??? Of course you CAN spend oodles on a page layout--but you don't HAVE to!

How do you save pennies on your scrapbooking these days?

I love this layout. Love the tear look but forget about it all the time.

P.S. I have alot of 12x12 paper that I cut into strips. I use CM albums most of the time so don't use the full 12x12 paper size.

Great point. I love the classic looks. I think I always use chalks and inks to distress pages.

I use gift bags as pages and also to make embellishments
