Seeing as we're starting a New Year, I thought I would do something a little different and share a scrapbook page every Saturday. Scrapbooking can be a little scary when you first start but in my own opinion there really are no rules except that you should really try to use acid & lignin free papers and card.
If you approach it like you would do a card, think of the photo as your topper or stamped image and go from there. Start with 8 x 8 rather than 12 x 12 - it's far less daunting and more like the size of cards we make.
As far as journalling is concerned, if you really don't want your handwriting on a page, then type it up on your pc and print it out. If you have nothing to say about a photo, don't stress about it, just don't have any journalling on that page. Scrapbooking should be fun and I think a lot of us get hung up on what supposed to be on a page and so we get put off and don't think we can do it. Anything goes as far as I'm concerned.
With the layout - if you like how it looks then go with it!
Anyhow, here's a 12 x 12 page with my daughter, Kathryn, and her boyfriend, Jonny -
See, not complicated at all!
Thanks for stopping by.
