My dear friend, Stephanie, introduced me to Zinio. It’s a free online library-related magazine subscription and I recently had time to check it out. The scrapbooks etc. magazine included an inspiring page that I plan to use for the first page of my next family album. Using the Snipping Tool*, I snipped and pasted the page and the directions into my This ‘n’ That album (misc. inspiration, pages for future albums and misc. projects).

Remember that you can make good use of the space around your project – it’s kind of like making a mess all over your dining room table when you used to have stickers, die cuts, papers, scraps, tools and photos scattered everywhere! I also refer to this concept in another post called Two Pages @ Once.

* The Microsoft Windows Snipping Tool is a handy, dandy feature that captures a screen shot of anything on your screen. It’s basically Print Screen but with immediate cropping options. I have it pinned on the taskbar across the bottom of my screen so it’s always on red alert. To see if your computer has it, click on the Start circle on the bottom left-hand corner of your screen and search “Snipping Tool”.
