S is for ...

Scrapbooking

So this is one of those crafts that I turned around a couple of years ago and said NO I will NEVER do it. Then I've turned around and found myself suddenly wanting to record my photos in another way. I want to be able to look through my albums and see what we've been up to and enjoy it. 

So what is scrapbooking?

Scrapbooking is a term for recording your memories. It has become quite an art form. You have what I call traditional layouts which are one or two pictures on a 12"x12" page. Though it can be more complicated than that. 

What has been coming out more and more is project life or pocket scrapbooking which is putting photos in pockets with simple journal cards. This is what I find myself doing more and more. 

Some Examples
Here are some of the cards you can get a hold of for project life. I downloaded these from the digital project life page and printed them off myself. I tend to do more digitally and then print it out.


I can see myself having a lot of fun with this.


Here is one of the layouts I did last month. I need to print of some new photos and show you what else I can come up with.


How to find out more?

 Now for a lot of the image editing and header layout I use on my blog I actually use a scrapbooking program called My Memories

If you want to find out more about project life go here. 

Happy Stitching,
Caitlin

  1. I said the same thing and then I realized I like looking at photos of my kiddos in albums. So many projects and so little time.

  2. Oh, I love scrapbooking! I'm a traditionalist - no digital and no project life. But I understand that's the only way some people can squeeze in the time, and I'd rather see people's pictures in albums than still on the camera. Since my daughter was born last year, my scrapbooking time has been very minimal and it's driving me crazy! I'm setting up an all day scrap event with my church ladies soon so I'll be able to finally get some layouts done. Great post!

  3. I scrapbook my Smalls all the time. I just love buying the different 12x12 pages, they are so cheap compared to fabric!
