An Idea or Two ~ Displaying your projects
Well, as you read this I'll be on hol's at my BFF's..... perfect time to schedule a post with what I'd been hoping to do this year. Which is share some ideas. I'm hoping to do this monthly. And I'm hoping they're helpful in some small way on your creative journey :)
So, how do you display what you make? DO you? I hope you do! I'd hate to think they just moulder away in your albums. Or [EEEK!!!] .....piles waiting patiently for an album!
I have particular spots around my house, where each week I change my display of pages.
Here they are:
On top of my china cabinet. On an old music stand of the boys' that I 'fussied up' a whiles back:)
From a distance:
On the side of my fridge. Luckily mine isn't built in! Those pegs are from TYPO. They have magnets on their back! Clever idea. And inexpensive:
On our lounge room wall. Simply hooked a page protector over a cup hook, then I slide my new page in each week!
This space is dedicated to Our Trips. So I pop a holiday LO here, to remember where we went....
Beneath is a wooden MM project I did a whiles back, using the image transfer method. DH actually wanted it inside! That made me feel pretty smug:)
On our wall unit shelves:
The perfect spot for smaller projects that will sit in a stand!
And finally, a while ago, in my kitchen, I'd done up an old cork notice board. Another plastic page holder [side on].
This time I've simply used drawing pins to hold it in place.
This page was actually published by Scrapbooking Memories last year, in memory of my Aunt who died from breast cancer:
When I'm doing the dishes I have something fun to look at!
And finally, on the table near our phone.
This is a little stand I picked up at the Op Shop, fussied up. Added some clips to match, to hold the pages on. On this stand, I generally place my A4 pages, which are mostly flowers or landscape photos of our local area, or from on holidays too. More 'scenery' type photos:
The stand takes both landscape & portrait pages. This is a cut down one that I 'rescued' from an old calendar I had made.....so it's actually of Nervi, in Italy, when we were on holidays! And it's only about 6 inches in length...
So, there you have how I display my projects. I'm hoping if you don't, that this will inspire you to DO!!
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
