cuts - Cut outs from paper made by die cut machines, which cuts
out fonts or patterns which then can be glued on to your scrapbooking
page. A die cut machine is (unfortunately) quite expensive, but
sometimes they have them at libraries or if you are attending a
workshop they might have one for you to borrow… If you like
to scrap together with friend, you can buy one together.
Digital Scrapbooking - Scrapbooking projects done with the help
of a computer and associated software program. The same basic structure
for scrapbooking is carried out (that is to create and preserve
a specific happening with the help of photos and a journal), but
the methods are different.
Embellishment - Scrapbooking decorations added
to your scrapbooking layout. Soft embellishment include ribbons,
flowers and tags, while hard embellishment could be items such as
buttons, charms and clips.
Embossing - A scrapbooking technique were you
add a three dimensional design to your layout. Dry embossing or
heat embossing are two most commonly used methods. A embossing tool
are used to press down the paper above the stencil, similar to when
you used to place a paper over a coin and go over it with a pencil
as a kid, but without the pencil effect.
Focal Point - The focal point is the area which
you want to high light in your layout, usually the photo, but it
could also be something else, such as a memory item, like a train
ticket or the journal.
Font - The specific style of letters or type.
It could include a specific calligraphy handwriting style or computer
Journaling - The journaling in a scrapbooking
layout serves to expand and explain the scrapbooking layout. It
could explain when and where the photo was taken or describe memories
or feelings around the photo.
