Okay, I just finished a long post and it got deleted so here's the shorter version. Went scrapbooking last weekend, finished 30 pages, had a great time, thought I would share some of my favorite pages.
My style of scrapbooking is to fit a ton of photos on two page layouts, along with some fun titles and embellishments. My layouts are usually pretty linear and sequential because I do use so many photos. I love to use kit items such as pre-made titles, journaling blocks, embellishments and matching patterned paper. My Mind's Eye has several lines that are fantastic for this type of scrapbooking! I hope you enjoy my samples.
Scrapbooking tip: When preparing for a crop or organizing scrapbooking supplies, here's what I do. I purchase giant baggies that fit 12 x 12 paper. I purchase my patterned paper and at least sheets of solid cardstock and put them in the bags. Toss in other embellishments to coordinate such as ribbon, primas, metal embellishments, brads, buttons, etc. Add a sticky note that tells the who, what, when, where information. Then store these in a safe place. I do this as I purchase supplies.....usually my love of patterned paper dictates my layouts and I always seem to find photos that will match. If not, I just print off photos in black and white or sepia tone sometimes. Then when I'm ready to crop, I just pack up my basic supplies like trimmer, scissors, tools, etc. This helps me pack very light compared to the other croppers usually. Plus it cuts down on the stress and waste of time of not being prepared. Oh, I do love to scrapbook!
