My friend Lynne heard I was a scrapbooker and wanted to see what I did and how to do it. She said the thing that she liked about my layouts is that they are DO-ABLE! YES! That's the point my friend.
We spent that day going over supplies - I gave her some of my extras. I gave her a list of websites to look at - especially sb.com !
We talked a lot about the different ways to scrapbook - chronologically, out-of-order, different themes, special stories, etc. I told her what worked for me after all these years and kept me sane - non chronological scrapping of whatever event, or photo that inspires me at the moment. I also explained that for some people doing it my way would cause total stress! So, you need to find out what's good for you.
Lynne has been scrapping up a STORM and it's funny - her favorite thing to do are mini albums - that's what keeps her sane!
