    Default For those who scrapbook....

    Do you have any favorite websites for ideas and supplies? I am just getting started, and want to do some online research. But there's so much out there!I have a Creative memories consultant (the girl that sits right next to me at work) but they only have so much. I'd love to see what else is out there. Thanks.

    I love to buy lots of things on ebay. Also, you can get some great deals on stickers, even with shipping!

    Default RE: For those who scrapbook.... share page ideas ?

    anybody have any great pages/layouts they would like to take a photo of and share ??

    thanks to this board, i not only have 4 slings, a diaper bag on order, and a totally unnecessary stroller i got from fao when they went out of business, but i just spent a fortune at michael's the other day when i went in to buy a couple wooden letters to paint for my sons' rooms, and got a scrapbook kit on sale since i read about that here too. since i am a total novice, i was hoping someone might want to share a favorite page or two, like people did with their custom diaper bag creations.

    am going to check out the above mentioned websites. want to make a book of last summer's vacation at grandmas beach house as a mothers day gift for my MIL. and running out of time !! (yes, i know it is pretty much summer again.... i still haven't made the final selections on my wedding album, and was married in december 2000...) so this maternity leave is the time to get all my crafts done. who needs sleep...


    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    edited to add: i just checked out the two peas website and am totally intimidated and overwhelmed. yikes ! anyone have any nice, but SIMPLER ideas or layouts to share ? the people who submitted stuff there made incredible things.... maybe i will call mine a decorated photo album so it doesn't feel like the most underdressed scrapbook at the party... i don't think i could ever make anything like some of those pages. not even with the next 4 monthw off, let alone something comparable for mothers day.

    perhaps i should sleep before tackling this project. :-(

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    Try Simple Scrapboks magazine, or their website, www.simplescrapbooks.com. You can find the mag in stores (like Borders, etc). They like to fill the niche for those of us who don't like *too* complicated stuff and who don't have time for that!

    Also, I found that when I go to scrapbook stores locally, they always have sample pages up around the store that I enjoy looking at. Plus, I always see fun products that I want to try and that helps me develop my pages in tandem with what I see in mags and in store displays.

    Default Scrapbook Page Posted

    Lynnie,

    This is the only scrapbook page I have saved on Shutterfly. I actually sent it to a friend a while back via e-mail so I happened to have it available. I would be happy to post more if you would like.

    Basically, the page you see was very easy to create. The hearts are cut out from a sheet I bought at the scrapbook store. The "baby" title was also bought at the scrapbook store. The "sitting" title under the picture is a sticker. Other than those embellishments, the only thing I did was mount the photos on different colored cardstock before I finally attached them to the background paper.

    I am more than happy to answer any more questions, but that is all I can think of for now. I suppose I will shut up now because a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

    ETA: This layout is Eva's 6th month. For her first year I am doing a layout of each month.

    Your pages look great! Putting together a scrapbook for DS is one of my goals for my summer vacation. Any tips for getting started? I love the way your pages look!

    Thanks! As far as tips go, I would say first sort your pictures into groups of 5-8. Each group is a two page layout. Take your groups of pictures to the scrapbook store and pick out paper and embellishments with your pictures in hand. It makes it much easier to pick out everything if you can match colors. Lastly, I stack my pictures and embellishments with the pictures I am using so when I have time to scrapbook all the prep work is done and I can just have fun and get started.

    Have fun with your scrapbooking,
