Boys VS. Girls in Scrapbooking

I had a little girl first. That’s when I dove head first into the world of scrapbooking. I loved all the adorable papers, and embellishments, flowers, bling, etc. etc. etc. that I could put on her layouts. It was so much fun, and so girly. Since that is how I started doing the more modern style of scrapbooking, I am a little lost when it comes to how to scrapbook for a boy. Does anyone else have this problem? So, I find that I want to put things on the layouts that maybe aren’t quite appropriate like papers that look … Continue reading

Product Review-Martha Stewart Large Circle Cutter

I have to admit that I am a very simple scrapbooker. I do not have a lot of “tools”. Rarely do I use them, so I don’t see the need to buy tools when I could spend my money on paper! But, I was watching Oprah the other day, and saw a tool that I thought I would actually use. It was the Martha Stewart Large Circle Cutter. I grabbed my 40% off one item coupon for Michaels and decided to head out and see how much it was. Honestly, it looked really cool and my free-hand circles never turn … Continue reading

How else can … Continue reading

I’ve been scrapbooking for 14 years now, and I can tell you honestly, there is no end in sight.
