The other day I received this e-mail message from one of the visitors to this site:
“I made 5 pages using your sketches, and for the first time I think they turned out okay. I just have a hard time using colors that look right together. I also am not sure when to use paper and when to use card stock.”
I had the same problem when I first started scrapbooking! I had no idea when to use card stock and when to use paper on my scrapbook layouts. In fact, I even remember “googling” it and still not being able to find an answer.
Well, the reason I could not find an answer is because there really is no wrong way or right way to go about this. I think it all really comes down to personal preference. However, I want to share with you what I do. However, if you have an entirely different way of looking at the paper or card stock dilemma, that’s ok – after all, scrapbooking is art and is open to creative interpretation!
