How does one begin to scrapbook? Is it better to do the digital or old fashioned with pictures and embellishments? I want to do one for all four of my boys but don't know if I should do one on different stages of their lives or just specific memories.

Stephanie, there is no right or wrong way to scrapbook. I teach both digital and traditional scrapbooking. Some that I've taught insist on scraping chronologically, others prefer to scrap events, vacations etc. I do both, if I'm scrapping our trip to Disney and I feel that all the pages are beginning to look the same I'll switch to Christmas, or birthdays or scenery. I have some handouts on traditional if you are interested just email me info@memoriesin.com or if you want to try digital go to www.memoriesin.com Please have fun with this and enjoy!

Hi Mary Lou... I would like your traditional documents. My email is kap123@hotmail.com.

And Hi Stephanie... I had a hard time starting too. But I found it easy to take one topic (a small one) and start with it. My talent has grown and you can DEFINITELY tell my beginning scrapbooking from the 'now' scrapbooking. My problem is it is now an obsession! Can't scrapbook enough. And when I can't think of something, I walk away from it and come back to it.



It has also helped to have an area that I didn't have to 'clean up' after each time I worked on it.. I have an entire room dedicated to my scrapbooking. And I love my cricut machine. I've heard a lot of good things about the new cricut, and I don't have that one.



Hope that helps. have fun with it above all else! Kim

I would like to have a copy of what you composed for your class about that subject.

Yes I did. I haven't got to read it all yet because of the holiday. Thank you so much for sending me the information.

Stephanie, did you receive the documents that emailed you? I hope they were helpful and if you need help with anything special let me know I might have taught my class about that subject and could send you a copy of what I composed for my class.
