Designer’s Tip: Fresh Frost papers are 6”x6” and are perfect for card making, but they can also work for scrapbook pages. For this page, I cut the coordinating papers into strips. Here’s a tip for stretching your paper, cut the 6” long strips in half, lengthwise, and glue them to extend from under the overlapped photos.
