So i've been trying to find ways to cut down scrapping costs.  I found my buying habits getting out of control so i've been looking into cheaper but very chique lay outs.http://gibby.tumblr.com/post/2075012 http://gibby.tumblr.com/post/2074987

For this set of pages I used a Dymo labeller for the tags which runs about 9$ at staples to make the lettering, reguelar photo paper and neon labels for 3$ from stables.  It was a very cheap page to make and really stands out in the album with the neon colors. I was inspired by subway tiles to make the design. Plus plain white 12x12" is super cheap as well. Way cheaper than 1$ a sheet fancy prints of course.

Thoughts ? does it look cheap?

It looks very classy and modern, like an ad for an art gallery or something.  Using labels is a great idea, and it looks really unique!

I try to make fancy things for less money too.  Those glittery fancy papers from the craft store are WAY too expensive for me!

Tetris, pretty colors, and (of course) lots of knitting!

Doesn't look cheap at all!

It looks like a modern art piece. Very cool. I like the idea of the labels too.... the white of the page really makes everything else pop.

Aren't Dymo labelers fabulous? You can reuse them for so many things... not just scrapbooking!

i think i'll start dating my dymo labeller secretly cause it is one of the most useful things I own in my toolbox . . . it has infinite uses . . do you know where you can order weird dymo labeller colors . . i heard a rumor that there was a place online you could get a whole rainbow of dymo refil colors?

i love it!! i read your post before i looked at the actual page and all i could think of was big blobs of neon pink and yellow and green... but i love it! seriously, i love simple scrapbook pages so much more than fancy-pants ones... oh well, just my opinion : )

I think it looks *amazing*!!! I love the colors, layout, etc. Especially that it was so cheap! Cheesy

The only suggestion I have is that next time,you make the tiles a bit bigger so you can see more of the actual pictures (which is the whole point of making the page in the first place, right?) Wink

Hey great job. White pages can be a great thing if you know how to use them. Keep up the good work!
