What scrapbooks do you use? I am starting with one that I've had for a while - don't even remember where I got it, but I have a friend that swears by Creative Memories. I really don't know the difference between any of them.
Also, what do you use to tack your pics and embellishments etc... to your paper? Since I just started I had a craft glue by Martha Stewart, but when I pulled it out the next day to show my bf you could see all the pics were raised from the glue. I have one of those little double sided tape things - maybe that would have been better. If so what tape do you use?
And lastly, where do you all come up with your fabulous ideas? I've check out some threads and am in awe of your work. I am not only new at this, but have never had an artistic bone in my body until recently - and even now I don't think I suddenly developed the artistic bones, I think I just developed some "wanna be" artistic brain cells My bf did art in college (and still does it, but his focus is comic book art and web design) and he was trying to explain some things to me about colors and layering and I was completely lost and frustrated - I like things very clean and organized so I can't always see how things can go together in my head when I don't feel they match, but then I see something someone else did and I am in awe of how great it looks together. So did you all start by getting ideas from books & mags etc.. or do you just naturally come up with this stuff???
Sorry so looooooonnnnnnggggg......
