Use staples on your card or layout.
I love staples! They come in all sorts of color now and have the duel purpose of holding stuff on and looking good. I have found myself using them a lot lately.
Recently I went up to Portland to meet up with some peeps and shop the vendor fair at CK's convention at the Convention Center. It was a blast! There were so many great ideas and fun stuff to woo scrappers of all kinds. We then had dinner and I stayed over in a super nice hotel in downtown. I even met Megan Hoeppner! I just brought along my little point and shoot camera, but it worked out nicely and I thought staples would be a great embellishment on a layout about scrapping.
I also joined in the all day crop Saturday during National Scrapbooking Day at BPC. They had challenges every hour for 12 hours. That's a lot of scrapping in one day! I managed to do 9 of the 12. The very first challenge was to make a fanciful frame around your photo. Ah...staples to the rescue. I made an actual frame, even miter cutting the corners. Then I just stapled them together. They work quite well. The frame is pretty sturdy. When I was finished, I added a few more staples to "hold" the strips on the page; added a fun banner and bingo bappo! After I took the photo and posted, I realized that I forgot my journaling. Um, hello? I will be adding the stories behind these photos very soon, lol.
