Being Gigi Makes Her Heart Sing


If you haven't noticed by now, I have a few staple items that I always reach for when I'm creating a layout. These are the things I consider the "little black dress" of scrapbooking; as every wardrobe needs a little black dress, every scrapbook page of mine needs these things:


(of course, I'm subject to change my opinion of these on a whim, but for now...)

masking tape
manilla shipping tags
inking
and the latest trend, thanks to Britt, matting my titles

*a common denominator of all of these things is that they are a cheap way to add extra oomph to your page, and they coordinate with nearly everything!

(This page is about our sweet Gigi, aka my Grams. I adore this picture I caught. Man, can you get any more genuine than the expressions on Sabby & Gigi's faces? It makes my heart smile. I created this layout with the beautiful Sweet Sue kit- 7 left!)
