Two of the biggest obstacles facing scrapbooks are 1) a lack of time and 2) a lack of money.  So often we see beautiful layouts with lots of intricate layers and details. And while we admire these creations most of us don’t have the time to create such detailed designs or the money to buy all the supplies needed.

Well I have the perfect answer for you. Bisous, pronounced (b-zoo), has the product for you. Their PDQ™ lines, with pre finished scrapbook papers will eliminate these obstacles but leave you with pages that have all the intricate details and the look of layers you desire without the cost or time.  Attach your photos; add some journaling and your done. From beginner scrapbookers to seasoned veterans, the PDQ™ lines have something for everyone. Weather you just add photos, build on the foundation to create your personal style, or cut the papers into pieces, you’ll find you have endless possibilities with the PDQ™ lines by Bisous.

Here I used Side B of Hot Paper 3.  After attaching my photo, I added chipboard for the title and as a few embellishments. I completed my journaling, and added a few rhinestones to the stars surrounding the heart. 

Tip: To add some more dimension and make the designs on the paper pop, I traced around some of the designs with coordinating markers and black Sharpie pens.

Here’s a quick, little Valentine’s Day gift I made for my mom.  Instead of just sending a photo for her to hang on the refrigerator, I altered a magnetic frame. The reds from the Love Letters Collection added great contrast to our photo that a lot of black in it. As a finishing touch, I added some bling and a flower on the outside of the frame to give it some extra pizzazz.
