Lots of great articles and tips have been passed along in the scrapbooking blog this week. As most of you know, I am now also blogging for the photography blog, and educating myself on how to tie these two hand-in-hand blogs together has become a huge goal.
While I continue researching articles on both photography tips, and scrapbooking tips, I feel I am becoming better at both. I hope when I begin to share my more recent layouts, you too will agree.
Let’s see what went on in the scrapbook blog this week:
It’s hot, sticky, wet and just generally, almost border line miserable around here. In fact, if I’m not in the pool, I’m seeking out the air-conditioned basement, where I can sit in my scrap room and create for hours.
As a former preschool teacher, I am fully confident that a scrapbooking program can be run in a preschool classroom. Even a three year old can decorate a piece of paper, and a four or five year old can be instructed somewhat in design.
Teaching scrapbooking in the classroom is loads of fun. Depending on the age group, it can even tie into the curriculum. With a preschool classroom, it is mainly just a fun way to incorporate a new form or art, and keep it ongoing.
Shaking it up in the scrapbooking world has always been my goal, besides teaching others about the joy of scrapbooking. Preserving memories, both good and bad is an extremely important process for people.
They redesigned it, they added new features, they made it bigger and better and easier to use. So, is it really worth the huge chunk of change dished out to upgrade to the new “better” Cricut Expression model? Many scrapbookers think so.
Basic storage is important for better scrapbooking results. Having your basic items at your reach, or stored in areas where they can be immediately accessible while you are creating a layout, is extremely beneficial. It can make for a much more productive crop time.
There is not a scrapbooker I have met, who has not found a layout or idea somewhere, that they have wanted to keep for later use. Scrapbooking inspiration is all around us. In fact, it’s in scrapbook magazines, idea books and even in the mail and online.
