I used some lace and ribbons on these pages. I found that Sticky Dots Adhesive (which comes in sheets) work well for the lace, while glue lines, besides creating bulk, didn't hold the folds very neatly.
Framing the photo all-round helped it sit better on the page. Unlike these photos which are bulky only along the top.
Also these lace edges were held in place by glue lines, adding unnecessary bulk.
I spent some mindless minutes stitching half a yard of ribbon to make the ruched border.
Fabric certainly adds texture to the page and cost-wise, you get a lot of mileage out of it. I'm off to make more fabric embellishments.
