Scrapbooking Tips


I currently have quite a bit on my plate for homemade gifts. I have a few christmas cards left, 3 scrapbooks, teacher gifts and some thank you notes. The other day I cleaned my stamp room so everything was put away neatly and now half a scrapbook later, it looks like i left my window open during the nor'easter.



I've been using the old scrapbooking set island blossom to make a book for my mother about our recent trip. I've cropped out the mess surrounding the book!!

Things I've learned while doing this book

1. I am a very messy scrapbooker and need your help for some tips to stay organized!!

2.The price on the new simply scrappin kits, which I thought at first was a little high, is completely reasonable. The new kits have so much more than this one which is only 2 years old. The paper and the die-cuts are so much better now and offer a lot more variety. I am super excited to see the new ones in the new spring summer collection.

3. 8x8 scrapbooks are fun but for a quick gift 6x6 is the way to go. Those 2 extra inches really add up!!

I'll post my other creations as I cross them off the list, 1st on the list is getting my daughter to take a nap(I like starting with the impossible)

Love your scrap pages. I need to start doing this more myself. I can't seem to break away from the other projects to get started on scrapping! I hope that the new catty has some must have kits, that will make me take the leap!

Lovely. I do agree about the sizing of things though - 6x6 is best for a gift. I hate giving them away as it is! Lol x
