Scrapbook Time

Time to Scrapbook!

Scrap-booking is what started all this craftiness in me as an adult. I've always been a paper crafting girl. In elementary school I used to get crafting books from the Library and after school I would make crafts and give them to my grandparents. :) 

When I had kids I started scrap-booking. My oldest is 22 now. She has a great scrapbook until she was about 7 or so....then I fizzled out. I think because by then I had another little girl and so then I was trying to do 2 scrapbooks. I just couldn't keep up. Then the digital world exploded and all my pictures were on my computer and on my phone, and scrap-booking took a back seat to all these pictures that I had available to see anytime...I didn't have to wait to develop them. 

Well instead of worrying about all the pages that I haven't done. I think I'll just start where I'm at. My youngest is in high-school, and I'm sure when she graduates, she would love a scrapbook of her high-school years. :)  

Do you ever feel like you aren't sure where to start when making a scrapbook page? I've heard many Stampin' Up! demonstrators say, "Use your card design". So I decided to try it. You know what???? It was so nice! I had the design and the colors already figured out. I just had to move it to a bigger canvas. 

I took this card...

and turned it into this scrapbook page...

It was so easy to take the colors and the decorations on the card and transition them over to a scrapbook page. And with Stampin' Up! and it's colors and how it all coordinates, that even made it simpler. 

Right now there is a gorgeous 12x12 Scrapbook on-sale with Stampin' Up! You can also get the 12x12 page protectors. Get started today! Don't waste another minute. You could even get some of the retiring 12x12 designer series paper and your whole book would coordinate :) What a great Mother's Day gift!! Maybe a quick page for each child and grandchild in your Mom's life :)
