And you know what? It's a bit of a shame, that.
Today we're going to celebrate people who take 'getting-stuff-off-your-computer' one step further. Scrapbookers! MOO cards and stickers are all acid and lignin free (took us a while to research that one, but people asked, so we thought we should check.) This means they're perfect for adding a unique and personal touch to your scrapbook designs... Something you can't buy in a shop.
It also means you can make a scrapbook full of images about your life, loves and friends and get everything lurking on your hard drive *off* and turned into something beautiful.
Here's a lovely example by Relly, who used MOO MiniCards for this design:
And another example using MiniCards - this time in a journal, by Heather:
Taking a different tack, Jamie Bloom made this beautiful calendar:
and Gina created this mix of painting and collage.
Relly has also taken advantage of MOO Stickers - to great effect. Look at this! Its a page full of a whole StickerBook's worth of images, detailing an entire year:
(If you fancy making Stickers, now's a good time - we've got a special offer!)
But some people do scrapbooking a little differently. These beautiful cards have been made by Renske. She creates collages and then photographs them. The resulting pictures make great MiniCards themselves:
and I've just spotted this - a scrapbook style design, made of the MiniCards which feature photos of Renske's scrapbook style designs!
Scottish scrapbooker, Emma has done something similar, and used photos of her beautiful collages, for MOO Postcards. Her designs are fantastic - check out the more detailed photo.
So, the moral of the story? Get out the glue, get your photos off the computer, and get creative!
Happy weekend, everyone!
