I was on vacation enjoying our first real glimpse of summer weather, the last week of April and realized that I wasn’t able to do a Week in Review for April 21-27. So this is what was going on that week. Keep your eyes on the scrapbooking blog for some great new features and columns coming this week. I would love to hear from you all about what you would like to see more of, so please don’t hesitate to email me or leave a comment.
Swaps have been around for awhile, and depending on your hobby, they are the same only changing for the medium or craft or hobby that you have. They are a terrific way to get more scrapbooking done, or card making done or whatever you might choose.
If you have been reading the scrapbooking blog for any period of time at all, you would know that finding innovative scrapbook storage is a major goal for me. On everything from ribbon storage to finding a way to store pens and markers, to finding items in weird places, I am always on the watch for something new!
Many scrapbookers feel that journaling is daunting task that is usually put off until last. Some scrapbookers don’t even include journaling on their pages, because it takes too much time and effort. It doesn’t have to be that way, though.
We have been talking about swap participation and the rules, guidelines and etiquette that goes with it. Specifically I am speaking about scrapbooking swaps, but these guidelines could be used with most any type of swap. Here are some don’ts of swap participation.
Swaps are so much fun to be a part of. They let you be creative, have fun, make new friends and get really neat things back. However, there are definitely some rules when participating in swaps.
Everyone has a dream and when it finally comes true, you might wish for someone to pinch you just to be sure you aren’t actually asleep.
Organizing could almost be considered a hobby all on its own. Many people actually enjoy the process of organizing and seem to almost always have some project going at one time or another. I love to organize, especially when it comes down to my scrapbooking.
With the sunshine replacing many of the rainy days we have been having, I have been trying to enjoy the weather whenever I can. This means I don’t have as much time to scrapbook, but it does mean I have a bit more time to write as I bring my laptop to the park or wherever I am planning on going.
Chalks, also known as pastels are so much fun to use on your scrapbook layouts. The vast variety of color choices means that you can match it to almost any color of cardstock or embellishment making your pages true ‘wow’ pages.
