I know there are a ton of super-scrappers on here and I am wondering.. How many scrapbooks do you have?

I have about 5 complete scrapbooks and due to limited space, "my scrapping space" is becoming tight quickly.. When I started scrapbooking, I would scrap each and every photo; and I learned FAST to pick just my favorites

Also, any suggestions on how to storage them in a small scrap area are very much appreciated!!

tia..

hmmmm, last time I counted somewhere around 30. I have most of an entire bookcase devoted to them.

I store mine too in a bookcase in the living room.

I don't know...I am guessing 4-5 at this point. I need more albums. For now they are in plastic containers. SOME are in albums, but they are over stuffed.

My PLANS are to store the finished albums in my living room on the bookcase. I don't plan to store them in my scrap area. I want my family and visitors to look at them! lol I'm an attention wh0re!

Well, I have about 20 completed ones that are in the albums, and maybe enough LOs done for another 4 that I have not put into albums yet. I store some on a shelf in my living room and others in a cabinet that sits in my dining room. It's a closed cabinet that originally acted as a pantry, but I don't need it for that anymore and moved my scrapbooks into it instead.

I have at least a half-dozen completed ones on my shelves. Plus there are several in progress. And about 6-8" worth of layouts stacked to go into albums still. :-/ (But I have completed around another dozen-plus albums that have all been gifts...)

I have two completed ones and probably 3 ongoing. But, I also have a lot of minis too.

I actually designed an entertainment center with scrapbooks in mind. I made sure that it was deep enough so that the scrapbooks wouldn't be sticking out of the front, and there are sections that are the perfect height for scrapbooks.

I've got 3 completed but enough pages that I could do probably another 3! My problem though is when I go to the store to buy a new album I get side tracked by all the new pretties that have come in and then my album fund gets sucked into more paper and embellies! So we'll see how long it takes for me to finish more albums!

I have my 8yr old's birth to 2 year album completed.

I have my 5.5yr old's birth to 2 year album either completed or its missing his 2nd bday LO.

I've done 2 or 3 LOs for my almost 3yr old's birth to 2yr album.

I have enough LOs sitting around to fill 2-3 family type albums or at least start a family/holiday/vacation album and start individual albums for each kid.

So long story short, I have 1, maybe 2 done but could probably have 3-4 full albums if I ever sat and put LOs in albums!

It sounds like I need to get scrapping!! Lol..

I am so proud of myself, I just finished two layouts. The first time I have actually completed a LO in almost 2 years!! Feels so good to be back in the "game"

Mine are on the book shelf (about 20 completed), but I'm running out of space ...

30+ blows my mind as well - I can't imagine getting that many LO's done - I get excited if I get 1 done a week, 2 is really pushing it.
