I recently received a warehouse box from Webster's Pages, and in it, there are at least 8 packages of trim, which I don't typically use. I usually like the challenge of unusual items in warehouse boxes, but some of the bigger, flashier trims are leaving me stumped, since I'm usually a "clean and simple" type scrapper. Does anyone have any ideas on how to use these?

Here's a link to something similar (the silver one in particular): http://www.websterspages.com/scrapbooking/trim-packs/all-about-me-trim-card

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there! I am a more Clean & Simple scrapper like you...I use WP trims all the time...I tend to use them a lot in borders...along the top, sides, under photos...I like the texture they add to my pages and cards. I tend to tuck them under other papers. They are great for making flowers with as well!

Have fun! I am so excited for you!

Hi, Lizzi! This is a really great question! Stacey had some excellent pointers and I just wanted to add that if you do other projects such as mini albums, these trims are GREAT for adding detail to the edges of your pages:

The bloomer trims are especially nice for this!

I hope this helps- and I love that you're looking for ideas. It's always fun to try out new things or explore options for how to use what we have. Enjoy!
