I met a fellow scrapper in California who scrapbooks for her husband who is in the military, i don't think she is on the site though! I am trying to make one for my brother who is in the Army has had 1 tour in Iraq. I found some cool embellishments at Michaels on cleance of the ARMY. I can't wait to get started!

hi,

totally new to scrapbooking, and the only reason i am here is i have a project i want to do - i'll explain:

every year (well since 2008) my kids have a magical elf from santa stay with us throughout december. its here to make sure the kids are good etc and reports back to santa. BUT along the way it gets into mischief!!! (this is a BIG tradition in america).

anyway, i have loads of photos of the things the elves have done and thought about just "putting in an album" but thoought a scrapbook would look better.

so i am afer help and ideas on the best way to do this. the photos have all been ordered via an online printing company, but havent arrived yet.

amy

I have dabbled in it and have created some basic pages, but now I REALLY want to get into scrapbooking. I am an elementary teacher and want to preserve many of the pictures I have taken and saved as well as preserve trips I have taken . I am very excited to learn about all of the neat things that make scrapbooking the cawesome art that it is!!

I am very new in fact this will be my FIRST project!
I love photography and am always taking pictures of everything and everyone! I want to make a scrap book for my boyfriend.. We have been together for almost 3 years so I have everything that we have done since day 1! I would like to make one big enough that I can add more pages to and continue our story throughout our relationship. I realize I probably will have several different ones.. Guess I need to go shopping first and watch a few videos!

Hello Lovely ScapLadies!

My name is Melissa and I am 23 yrs old.
The reason that I started scrapping is because since I am in America (im dutch) I have this fascination with taking pictures just to remember how things were.
I remember when i grew up that i wasn't the best drawing artist but I had a good sense for color-schemes and scrapping.
Now my husband and I got married and we went on our honeymoon I wanted to do special things with those pictures.
So with the money we got from our family and friends I bought my first scrapbook and items.
I am sooo excited!
And I can't wait to get started and produce some nice pages to remember our memories!

What are the real items I need to make a start?

And I would love to meet some people that share the same interests that I have!

Have a really nice day!

Melissa

Hi everyone, I am new here too and I am so relieved to find out that there is no wrong way to do scrap layouts. I am one who struggles with themes and such. Maybe I am making this harder than it should be. But I am looking forward to making new friends and sharing ideas. I am totally addicted to scrapping though.
