Scrapbooking Week in Review for July 16-22, 2007

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.

The Best Articles for Journaling on Your Layouts

Journaling has got to probably be one of my favorite parts of scrapbooking. I love being able to write words that express how I felt about an event, or how I am feeling about that person. My children love to read what I have written, and all in all journaling is inspirational and feels good.

Using Song Lyrics on Your Layouts

Having trouble finding the right words? Using some song lyrics on your scrapbook layouts is a great way to convey a feeling or emotion. Sometimes a song’s lyrics say it better than we can on our own.

Portraits and Layouts

Portraits seem to be a challenge for many scrapbookers to turn into layouts. I’m not sure if it is because you are left with so many pictures, a very common complaint. Or if it is because of the many different sizes you receive in a portrait package.

Portraits and Layouts: Dealing with All Those Portraits

As part of this series about portraits and your layouts, I am determined to find solutions for what to do with each of the problems that faces a scrapbooker. Many scrapbookers find the simply obnoxious amount of photographs you get in a package to be overwhelming.

Portraits and Layouts: What’s With All the Sizes?

Portrait packages are notorious for coming with several different sizes. From almost too big to do anything with except hang on the wall, to being to small for anything that even resembles being able to see the photograph, the sizes can be challenging to work with.

Portraits and Layouts: Home Studio Portraits

Not all scrapbookers choose to go pay the high prices for expensive studio portraits. So where do they get their portraits? Aside from the yearly school portrait packages that come home, usually they create their own home studios for taking these same types of portraits.

Are You Afraid to Scrapbook?

It seems like a strange question to ask, I know. However the longer I scrapbook, the more I hear people say that they are afraid to scrapbook. Afraid to scrapbook? I ask myself how anyone can be afraid to scrapbook, yet there really are some people that are.

Have a wonderful week!
