If you plan to store your scrapbook pages in an album, which most of us do, keep in mind that larger embellishments such as big beads, puffy flowers, fat buttons, and charms will mean that you can't close up the album properly without squashing everything and ruining your hard work.
Set these embellishments aside for card-making or even better, create a scrapbooking page designed to be displayed on the wall!
Look for great themes and beautiful stickers but don't use them all at once
stickers are fun, right? Especially when you first start collecting them and realize that you can get whole sheets of gorgeous themed stickers that look great together.
But like some other things in life, too much is just well ... too much. If you have lots of stickers on your page, your layout will just look cluttered and they will distract the viewer from the main elements on your page.
We want the stickers and scrapbook embellishments to complement the photographs and overall theme of your scrapbooking page and in most cases, they won't be the star attraction. I recommend embracing the space on your scrapbooking layouts!
You will see in the photograph below that I have used just a couple of different embellishments on the page, leaving space around the objects.
