I messed up… | Lettering Disaster | Scrapbook Layout Fixes

This was a disaster. I should have just left the title alone. It was fine. But nooooo…. I had to try to outline my nice die-cut, already-adhered letters with a white gel pen.


Who knows. It looked crazy, and I also dragged the pen a bit by accident. So I wanted to pull the letters off and redo them.

Except the cardstock ripped, and then it looked worse.

I should have just left the layout alone!

My “fix idea” was to go with the “cover-up”.

Fortunately, the layout already had nice symmetrical blocks on the bottom-left and bottom-right side. So, if I used paper from the same paper collection and cut it to the same size as the existing blocks, it should cover up the mistake nicely.

“Should” is the key word here…

I measured the existing block.
I chose paper scraps from the same paper collection.
And I basically just adhered paper and cardstock right over top of my mistake.

This seemed to fix my issue!

Looks great!
Check out the finished result!

Don’t stress over your scrapbook layout mistakes…

Instead, just see what already exists on the layout and go for the “big cover-up”. Most of the time, this will work!
