As many of you know I do not classify myself as a scrapbooker. I am more of a cardmaker, however I do enjoy documenting the story of my life for my kids. I make a family album for the year. Just like many of my other scrapbook friends, I find that I'm always behind. This past weekend I was able to go to a weekend long scrapbooking retreat. 48 hours of scrapbooking...my goal was to complete 2008. 62 12 x 12 pages later...I accomplished my goal.
Below is one of my favorite pages.
In the next few posts I show you more of my scrapbooking and also talk a little about how I prep for scrapbooking.
How do you organize your pictures and memorabilia for scrapbooking?
I started stamping in 2002. I went to my first workshop quite skeptical thinking I did not need another hobbby. Needless to say I fell in love and was instantly addicted to Stampin' Up! One of the things that I have loved about this hobby is that I'm spreading joy with a card or a gift. It took me several more years of stamping to become a demonstrator. Finally in 2006 I turned the hobby into a business and became a demonstrator and the joy of stamping grew. Not only was I making cards and gifts for friends and family but I began teaching others to do the same. It may sound a little silly but Stampin' UP! is my way of spreading a little more joy in this world. Sending a friend a card is like sending them a smile.
