Faux Polaroids on Travel or Project Life Page
These little Polaroid frames are everywhere and they are really easy to do. All you need is something that will cut a square. I used my Cricut and cut a 2 3/4" square leaving some border around the square.
Then I trimmed the paper with my paper trimmer to leave a 1/4" border around 3 sides and 3/4" on the bottom. That's it, an instant Polaroid frame.
Then it was easy to glue it over a 3" photo. You can make these any size you want.
For the rest of this overview page from our recent beach trip, I dug into my stash for some old stickers and some newer Washi tapes. Before applying those, I stamped some circles but not with stamps or ink. The video shows how to make these - really easy and fun. I've seen other people do these but hadn't tried them. I'll definitely do this again.
Next week, I'll start posting all the layouts from the 6x6 Scrapinar. Some of these have process videos which go through more of the layout than was shown in the Scrapinar. I still need to edit and voice over those. I think I'll do a label for these posts so it will be easy to see them all at once.
