An Easy Way To Add Fun Backgrounds To Your Photos!

I love a good light and bright white background for photos, but sometimes I like to do something a bit different.

I have been a stationary addict for as long as I can remember and I simply cannot walk through a discount store, craft store or any store for that matter that stocks things papery.

The other day I was in the Reject Shop looking for stickers for my planner, when I spotted this big cardstock pad.

I have never been into scrapbooking (surprisingly) and I almost put it back on the shelf, but the glittery one caught my eye and I could not put it down.

Glad I didn’t now…

An alternative use for scrapbook paper

I don’t take the sheets out of the pad, I just open it up to what I want to use, that way the sheets don’t get any crinkles or marks.

You can buy scrapbook paper from Kmart, Big W or any craft outlet and it is incredibly good value.

This would not work for large items that need a big back drop, but as long as your item is not more than 30cm across they will work perfectly.

It might only be August, but one of my friends is getting in early with Christmas planning and I got this invite in the mail!

What a good excuse to use my sparkly paper….

A quick snap with my iPhone and on to Instagram it goes!

Does not get much easier than that.

Do you experiment with different backgrounds or are you are a pure white girl?
