“Hope is the thing with feathers,” according to Emily Dickinson. But according to some scrapbookers, frustration is the thing with feathers – at least when it comes to figuring out how to use them on your digital scrapbook layouts. Many of us love the way feathers look in a kit preview, but when we drag them onto our layout, we just don’t know what to do with them.
Well, today’s SugarBabe Sunday has the answer – or several answers – because there’s lots of ways you can use feathers on your next layout! We asked the SugarBabes to share some of their favorite layouts they’ve created using feathers, and they totally came through for us. They use feathers to dress up their pages in four main ways:
- by hanging them on their pages,
- as large background elements,
- as scatters, or looking like they’re falling on their layout, and
- as part of element clusters, often replacing foliage or leaves.
There’s lots of gorgeous layouts to enjoy in each of these four categories, so keep on scrolling!

I hope this gives you new ideas and new confidence to try using feathers on your next layout! Is there another type of digital scrapbooking supply you struggle to use or would like more ideas for? Let me know in the comments, and it could be the topic of a future SugarBabe Sunday!
