Break Out of Your Scrapbooking Rut

If you’re stuck on a page and you need a better way to make your pages look fantastic, the best thing to do is to take some time and do something else. Give yourself time to think and imagine the possibilities for the page, rather than to stress over it. Then, go back to your project and experiment. Is there a different way you could use the photos? A different layout? Different colors? Try adding or subtracting different elements to find the layout or design you’ve been looking for.

Still stuck? Try looking online for inspiration. Browse through scrapbooking guides and magazines. Play around with different color schemes. The key is to allow yourself to experiment so that you can unlock that creativity. Then, once you’ve done that, the rest is easy!

Get yourself out of your scrapbooking rut by allowing yourself to experiment and be creative. Remember, just be patient – a good idea will come soon!

We know how enjoyable and rewarding scrapbooking can be, and for those who don’t have scrapbooking listed as one of their hobbies, you are missing out on all the fun and creativity you can have with showcasing their favorite memories! Check out our top five reasons why scrapbooking is so much fun and you’ll see why we love it:

  1. Reminiscing over memories and pictures from past vacations, parties and other gatherings.

  2. Brings out the creative side and lets you experiment with layouts, colors and design.

  3. Being able to share the adventures and memories with others.

  4. Can be a form of relaxation and gives you time to enjoy past memories.

  5. Meeting other scrapbookers and building relationships with the scrapbooking community.

These five reasons are just a few of the ways you could enjoy this very popular hobby. You can scrapbook for your own enjoyment, scrapbook for others, or can even help someone else put together his or her own book. Either way, scrapbooking is such a rewarding and exciting pastime!

Scrapbook that Winter Fun!

Scrapbooking is important if you want to keep those memories for a lifetime. This winter, as you plan ski trips, remember that you should be bringing along a camera to capture all of those special moments on the slopes. If you and your family are planning on doing any skiing, snow tubing, skating, or sledding this winter, don’t forget to pack along a camera! These are the memories that are going to last a lifetime.

Once you’ve got the photos of your winter fun, it’s time to put them into a scrapbook so that they can be enjoyed for many years to come. Choose a scrapbook that features a winter theme or comes in a white, silver, or icy blue hue to capture the feel of the season. Then, add in your photos along with some wintry embellishments, like paper snowflakes. Look for stickers or cutouts of skiers, sledders, or other people doing winter activities to include on each page. Include scraps like ski lift passes or skate rental vouchers as a special touch. Then, write in captions about your trip. That’s it – you’ve got a beautiful winter scrapbook that’s sure to be remembered!
