I finally got around to scrapbooking last week - not for any specific assignments but just for fun! I absolutely love the opportunity I have to create projects for publication but it is also fun to just play around sometimes with no guidelines, requirements, etc.
I have been better lately at printing out photos as I take them instead of just leaving them all on my computer until I am ready to scrapbook. It was always such a process to sit down at the computer and look through thousands (literally) of photographs trying to decide what to scrapbook. Then I would have to spend the time editing, cropping and printing and sometimes I would run out of time (and energy) before I even got scrapbooking! So, I decided to start printing out my favorites as I take them. Now, when I am ready to scrapbook I can just grab some photos and get started right away! It works much better for me!
I have quite a few monthly scrapbooking kits from Poppy Ink that I haven't used so I was excited to dig into one of those finally! Kits really are a fun way to go because you get a sampling of products that are already put together for you. Then you don't have to spend a bunch of time trying to decide which products you want to use. (These are especially great for people that don't scrapbook a lot or that get overwhelmed when they go to a scrapbook store!) Each kit has everything you need to create a bunch of pages! I added a few other products that I have in my stash, but mostly used what was in the kit.
The first layout is about Tyler and how he loves sports and then the other 2 are about their first days of school this year! I love these boys!! They are growing up way too quickly!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
