Take Your Scrapbooking Out of Bounds Life is full of rules, both written and unspoken-and scrapbooking is no exception. Rules are great guidelines, but they can quickly become boundaries that stifle creativity. It's time to Cut Loose and break free from the confines of typical scrapbooking to breathe new life into your pages.
With tons of great layouts that illustrate how to break 30 common scrapbooking "rules," Cut Loose is bound to spark a bit of rebel in you, and get you creating in fresh new ways. Layouts illustrating how to break rules like "only good photos should be used" and "patterned paper must match" will open your eyes to conventional rules you might not even realize you're following, then show you how to push yourself to create without limits.
