These layouts were designed for 'newbies' to scrapbooking and therefore are quite simple (but effective) in design.

Using Rub-ons on layouts
Here is another two 8" x 8" layouts, this time using rub-ons on the pages. I know I have met many people who will not use this technique because they are afraid of messing up their layouts if they don't rub-on properly. Personally, I think it comes down to the quality of the rub-ons. If you use good quality rub-ons this should not happen.I used Crate Paper Prudence Collection patterned papers for both layouts. I cut one sheet to 8" x 8" then layered the papers up, putting a larger piece on the top so I could use the rub-ons as a title. The word Joy is a rub-on too. I used a rub-on on the corner of the photograph also.For this layout I cut a piece of patterned paper 8" x 8" and layered different sized papers on top before adding my photo. I like the present trend of 'banners or flags', (or whatever you want to call them) to pages - just remember to cut them to size in proportion to the layout otherwise it overpowers the page. I added the rub-ons 'Love' and 'Life'. My journalling is added on strips at the bottom of both pages.
