Technique Tuesday

OK, girls, I'm starting a new feature every Tuesday called "Technique Tuesday!" Each Tuesday, I will post a new scrapbook technique for you to try! This week, I am featuring a technique from the Autumn Leaves Design With 2008 Calendar {If you haven't got yours yet...GET ONE!!! They ROCK!!}

Here's our technique for today:

"TRIM YOUR PAGE TO ALLOW FOR OVERLAPPING ELEMENTS"

How To: To ensure overlapping elements- like the orange scroll shown here- don't extend beyond the edge of you page protector, cut the top of your page to allow space for it. The resulting page is still only 12" tall but allows you to have a decorative accent extend off the page!
This is such a simple technique that adds interest and fun to you pages! C'mon, give it a try!!
AND NOW................. MORE BINGO WORDS!!!!!!!
Here ya go:
FELT
AUTUMN LEAVES
EMBOSS
Good Luck Girls!!! How close are we to a winner??!!
