Scapbooking Styles.... scrapbook a page CONTEST!!!

Okay, so we've established that I love to "scraplift" but today I want to talk about scrapbooking styles.

Everyone has a different style of scrapbooking. I like a lot of different styles and I like my pages to all be unique. So, I thought it would be fun to scrapbook 3 different styles using 1 sketch.

So, here's the sketch that I chose.  If you would like some great sketches, here is a link to 40 sketches on Creating Keepsakes.

The first layout that I did was a CLASSIC/SIMPLE look.  It has a lot of simple lines and clean edges.  You will see patterned paper, but you will also see a lot of matted photos.  You will also see rounded corners.

The 2nd layout that I did was a FUN & FUNKY style.  With fun and funky you see a lot of torn edges.  A lot of sewing on the pages and fun stuff like felt, fabric, ribbon, etc.  Thanks to my mom for letting me raid her stash of felt that I think she's had since the 70's.  I got some really fun colors that you can't buy any more.
My 3rd style was FASHION.  Fashion is the style that you will find the most in scrapbooking magazines.  Fashion uses a lot of fun patterned paper, ribbon, flowers and bling.

I can't tell you how much fun I had scrapbooking all 3 of these layouts in 3 different styles.  It was fun to use the same sketch... and it also shows that a sketch is just a guideline to get you started on your page.  As you can see, I used the sketch in different ways each time.

So, on to my CONTEST!  I would like to scrapbook a page for YOU!!!  All you have to do is leave a COMMENT about the scrapbook style that you use or which of my layouts you like the most.  Leave your comment by the end of the week.  On Monday I put everyone's name that left a comment in a hat.  Whoever gets their name drawn out will get a page scrapbooked by ME!  That's right, I will scrapbook a 2 page layout for YOU!   Doesn't that sound nice to have someone take a little of the load off your shoulders.  

Also, don't forget about our GIVE-AWAY!!! We would like to see some of your scrapbook pages.  Just send them to twiddle-thumbs@rocketmail.com

How fun! What a great idea! I hope you pick me. My favorite is the fashion one, although I love all of them. I think I saw this layout in my issue of creating keepsakes. It's fun to see someone else's take on it.

I love to scrapbook all three ways. It often depends on the pictures I am scrapping. I think my favorite is the fashion style. It was fun to see all three styles next to each other.

So I am really having a hard time choosing just one! I like all 3 of them! I really can't choose, but I guess I am a sucker for stitching on a page so I think FUN and FUNKY, but I love all 3 of them!
