How to add value and Uniqueness to your Scrapbook Pages

It is very easy and affordable to add value and uniqueness to your scrap book pages with loose Gemstones. Gemstones come in so many shapes, sizes and colors, so it is very easy to incorporate them into any theme. I have been using gemstones in my scrapbook pages for quite awhile, and I always recommend them to my friends and family. There are many advantages to using gemstones as well. Gemstones are very easy to apply with glue dots, they will never fade or tarnish and it doesn't take any special techniques to create a very dramatic page.
What I like best about using Gemstones in my craft projects is how easy they can be added to finished pages as well. If you are like most Scrapbookers you already have expensive 3d stickers in your creations that have plastic stones in the design. All you have to do is carefully take the plastic stones off and replace with Genuine Gemstones. Here are a few ideas of ways I have used Gemstones in my pages:

 Square sapphires for butterfly and bee antenna tips
 Super star page with diamonds in the background
 Polk-a-dots on Easter eggs
 Eyes on the 3d animals
 Ornaments on a Christmas tree
 Birthstone Pages
 And much more.

There are many other crafts you can use Gemstones in as well so the possibilities are endless on what you can create. This Christmas I will be giving away shadow box frames with a Scrapbook page with Gemstones accents. They will be a very special and truly unique gift!

I hope you have enjoyed my article and Happy Scrapbooking!
And remember be Creative Gemstones are only the beginning to using Jewelry in your Scrapbooking!
