Scrapping about Scrapping

With this month’s amazing collab kit, SCRAPPING & SNAPPING, I want to take some time to encourage you to make your love for this hobby part of your story. For many of us, scrapping (and snapping!) are more than just something we enjoy a few times a year. It is a huge part of our daily routine…everything from the sites we visit, the friends we chat with, and the way we spend our money. Scrapping is part of who we are and it should be in our albums. Back in May I did this post for {inter}National Scrapbooking Day. In it I gave some example of pages I have done on this subject. Because scrapbooking is so much a part of me, I want to make sure that it is a big part of the story I leave behind.

Here are some different ideas you can use to get you thinking about scrapping about scrapping:

  • Why you scrap
  • Friends you have met through scrapping
  • Creative Teams you have been on
  • How your kids feel about your albums
  • What scrapbooking means to you
  • What you have learned from scrapbooking
  • What you want your children to know through your scrapbooks
  • Digi sites you love

This month’s collab kit is filled with great elements and inspiration for scrapping about scrapping and is perfect creating pages and projects. If you are short on time, you can try one of the 20+ quick pages and templates to get you started! Here are two pages by our team using this kit for scrapping about scrapping:

Of course, there are tons of other kits and element sets out there. Team member Rachael made the awesome layout below to talk about where her love of photography came from. She used CAPTURE THE MOMENT by Kate Hadfield and Designs by Lili. The point is, if scrapping is a big part of who you are, it should be a big part of your albums! Link us up to your pages and your favorite scrapping kits and elements! We want to see!

P.S. Thanks for all the comments yesterday. I feel bad for the comment I made about me being about to get $4 12 x 12 canvas prints. I thought most people realized that while I am an American gal, I don’t live in America. I live in Indonesia where although I can’t get many of the things I love, I can get some things much cheaper than I could in the States. Canvas is obviously one of them.
