How long have you been scrapbooking? Has your style changed over time?

I don't remember a time when I didn't do some form of scrapping.

It all started with Magazines and those magnetic albums!

So yeah, you could say it definatly changed my style over time.

Since Diana Spencer married Prince Charles back in 1981. I pasted newspaper clippings into Mead notebooks.

My style has changed in that I'm no longer using glue, Scotch tape and 3 subject notebooks. I'm still a fairly simple scrapper, with the emphasis on my pictures rather than embellishments or techniques.

I started really scrapping this past winter and my style has already changed. Maybe its that I'm still trying to find my style.

I feel like I've been scrapbooking longer because I bought a ton of supplies years ago, but just never got into it.

It's a year this month. I started with a kit that was originally meant for my dd to use after my granddaughter was born. Well my dd never used it and I gave it a try... and here I am
My style is starting to change, but I'm still kind of finding it.

It's been over 10 years but it's not really my style that's changed but as I acquired new toys/tools the look did change.

Started out with templates and hand cut things. I've always been into die cuts and still am, so that didn't change.

I technically started the summer after 8th grade in 1995, but didn't really get into scrapbooking until a couple years after that.

My style has changed over that time, it's a much cleaner style.

I did some scrapping about 13 years ago; right after I had my son. I did alot of his baby pictures and up until he started Pre-K, then I stopped.

I started up again about 3 years ago when I joined a Mommies Group and we had a scrapbooking sub-group.

I think my style has changed tremendously from the first album, but there is also alot of difference from when I started back up 3 years ago as well.

I scrapped with my mom when I was really young (like 10 or 11) but had a long break until my co-workers got me into it in 2006. I know that trends have changed a LOT since my first scrap booking page so my style has changed too! Since I started in 2006 I've been able to see a change as well, but it's kind of like Mandi said, I'm not sure exactly how to describe it but I like my layouts better =)

Well, I guess when I was little. My mom always kept all the newspaper clippings, etc. and I glued them into scrapbooks.

My style has definitely changed over the years! I use acid free things, I embellish pages rather than just glue them, I journal, etc.

I even look at some books I did just 5-6 years ago and think "wow, I've gotten a lot better"!

I have been scrapping for about 4 years now. And ever since I came to sb.com my style has definitely changed from using a ton of pictures on one page to just using 1 or 2 pictures per page and a lot more paper techniques. The scrappers on this site have inspired me to branch out!

I started scrapping in High School in about '96 with a book that had Kraft paper pages and I would use scoth tape to attatch mementos, postcards, and very few pictures. I would add little side notes with a ball point pen(I still LOVE this book--so many memories!).
In 1998, after I got married, I started scrapbooking with photos and doing it the way we do it now. To say my style has changed drastically would be an understatement, but mostly because the world of scrapbooking has changed so drastically as well. When I started there were a few pps to choose from, a few stickers, and deco edge scissors and that's about it--we've come along ways to say the least!

I started to scrap when my son was 1 and he is now 13, so 12 years ago.

It started with a CM party at my house and all this boring lady had to say was that there were stores out there for this BUT we don't use them, needless to say I went searching for the "stores" and found them and never looked twice at CM products and white pages again.

I started in 2003 and was immediately addicted. My style changes all the time as I try new techniqes and get new tools.

I went to a CM party prob 12 years ago, was not impressed. Still not impressed with them.

I have been scrapping for about 10 years, and my style has certainly changed, and will probably continue to change as new products are released and I learn new techniques.

I have just been scrapping since January 2005. I joined sb.com in Feb. 2005. My style has changed since the very beginning as I learned more and more, but I can go back and see that I like straight lines and not too much clutter on the page.

I started in college when a roomate was showing me what she was doing with her photos. It was very much in the style of creative memories, lots of journaling and shape cutting of pictures and such. I didn't have a lot of cash so I did mine with construction paper and rubber cement. I kinda did it off and on for many years. And got really back into it about 5 years ago. So many new products and the accessibility to them was better (and so was my salary, LOL!!)

My style evolved from there. The main motivation was always the art of it, but pictures are always the main focus of a page for me.

I have scrapbooked since high school in some shape or form...so that would be almost 30 years (YIKES!). But I tried Creative Memories about 13 years ago and that's when it was scrapbooking more as we know it today. And YES....big style evolution since the first years. Thank goodness!

I was preparing to scrap by buying supplies for 2 years before I actually started. A health scare actually got me started. Since I have really been into it, I can see a change. Before I tried to get all of the pictures on one page. I now will do one picture page LOs.

I've been scrapping for 4 years. My style has DEFINITELY changed. Before I committed a ton of scrap-sins (like cutting original photos, using really cheap glue, not being anal about acid free or lignin free). Now, I'm more cognisant (sp) of design, patterned paper and acid free/lignin free.

hugs, Josie

I've been scrapping for 9 years, but I got REALLY, REALLY into it about 3 years ago. My style has changed a lot...I started off doing Creative Memories, back when they just had the white page that you stuck the pictures to, and added stickers.

I have been scrapping for a little over 10 years and my style has changed a lot. The biggest change that I can think of right off the bat is that when I started scrapping I LOVED stickers! I put so many on every page that now I look at them and think that they look silly, Oh well!

I have been scrapbooking since high school. I started with using magazine titles and clippings to "embellish" and would doodle a lot, and kept everything in one of those brown,paper scrapbooks, I dont know what to call it exactly. It says "scrapbook" The pages are brown. Anyway.I am very much out of high school now (my DD has graduated from 10th and will be a Jr. next year) and my style has totally changed!!!!! I like my old scrapbook, and am glad I did them. But I really love my new "embellishments". S

I started about 8-9 years ago. And like so many others, mine started with a CM party!! So for a while I did just strictly CM and kept listening to my consultant (who is a very good friend of mine) when she told me there "was no other way"...Then I met a Stampin Up lady and discovered a whole new world!! She introduced me to the stores both online and regular stores!!

But I do still use CM, just not all the time!!

I have a scrapbook i started in elementary school some 17 18 years ago, its one those big albums with the brown paper you glued items to. I claim I started scrapping 10 years ago in HS. My style has changed being that was soo long ago, I did 81/2 X 11 cause thats all there was!! Mostly used just plain cardstock there were some pp. I mostly cut and matted pictures no real journaling or titles, its scary looking at them but I labeled who everyone was in the pictures which Im glad cause I dont think I would have remembered them today

I've been scrapping for almost 10 years. My style started with the typical deco edges and sticker sneeze, then evolved into super neat & tidy with computer journaling, then onto a little bit of lumpy bumpy. Now I've settled into a comfortable clean & simple style with one or two flat embellishments and hand journaling. I really would love to see the trend go back to the bare basics. I lost my motivation in the last year or two when cluttered layouts became the rage.

I started in 2000 when my daughter was born and my style has changed over the years, which I think is natural... In fact, when I look at the layouts I posted here back in 2004 and compare them to the ones I did recently I see such a difference!
