Scrapbooking.

Post  Stecranat on Fri Mar 28, 2008 6:21 am

Have been given two "scrapbooking kits" to do for grandchildren. I have no idea how it's done & nor have I ever seen a completed one. Has anyone out there ever done scrapbooking?. I do enjoy crafty things so I guess I will enjoy this, I just don't know where to start. Yesterday I did find a scrapbooking forum so perhaps that will point me in the right direction.

I do scrapbooking and use many household and found objects.It can be expensive but needn't be.I also stamp so I use stamps and ink a lot, I only buy an item if I can use it at least twice.I buy a lot from Cheap Shops (We have Cheap as Chips but any of them ).For my albums I like to pick a theme, although I don't always.I have used rainbows with each page being a certain colour in all it's shades which I picked according to the photos main colour.Also I have used the Alphabet system (ie page 1. Ruby likes to eat apples, photo of Ruby using red and greens apple borders,and a swing tag with a stamped apple, and maybe a button either an apple or a shiny red one).I feel it is a creative way to tell the story of either the photo ,the activity in it or the person involved.Be aware its addictive though.

I want to start digiscrapping. Don't know how I'll go, I'm at the starting line too. I have Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop but prefer to work with Paintshop - just find it less complicated. Will look about for some tutorials. If anyone else is doing this I'd love to hear from them.
