My name is Vicki and I have been making scrapbooks and designing scrapbooking pages for many years. I want to share my ideas and page layouts with other enthusiasts, and show people who are new to scrapbooking how to make great scrapbook pages.
For many people when they first start out making a scrapbook they are faced with an overwhelming amount of products and information. My aim is to give you easy to follow and detailed information on which scrapbook supplies you will need, how to use tools, save money and make your scrapbooking ideas come to life.
Some scrapbooking terms and tools will be new to beginners such as, embossing powder, distressing vellum and decoupage to name just a few. You will find many step by step, fully illustrated guides here on this site, across a wide range of techniques, for both beginners and experienced scrapbooking enthusiasts.
Once you start making your page layouts you will soon learn the jargon and find using the various tools second nature.
There are thousands of different types of scrapbook paper to choose from and by selecting the right paper and embellishments you can easily incorporate themes into yourpages, such as Christmas, Halloween and Wedding layouts.
They say every picture tells a story which is true, but the best pages are the ones with great scrapbook quotes on them.
This is one of the many benefits of having your favourite pictures in a scrapbook, instead of a standard photo album. You can add as much information to your scrapbook pages as you wish, by handwriting your scrapbook quotes, printing them from a computer, or using scrapbook stickers.
You can then add when and where your pictures were taken, and include a description about the day or occasion to help you remember in years to come.
Why not send me your own scrapbook designs and page layouts which I will display in the member’s gallery. If you have any questions or want to share your own techniques and tips please do so in the forums which are checked daily.
Please feel free to sign up for my free newsletter where I will provide you with regular updates on all the latest news, products and step by step guides.
There really are endless possibilities to make some beautiful page layouts and I hope you find inspiration for your own scrapbook ideas here on my site.
