A Valuable Tip for Past and Present Scrapbookers

As the SF Scrapbooking Examiner from Examiner.com, Vivien Hughston is no stranger to helping scrapbookers build gorgeous scrapbooks that will last a lifetime. In a recent article , she shares a valuable tidbit of information that can benefit crafters and scrapbookers everywhere.

“I always hear, ‘How will I ever get all my pictures in a scrapbook?’” writes Hughston. “My number one suggestion is not to overwhelm yourself with the thought. Instead, go through your older photo albums and create ‘pages’ with the pictures inside. Yes, it’s a scrapbook! Photo albums are a quick way to get those pictures scrapped.”

That’s right. You don’t always have to build a traditional scrapbook to get the same results. Instead of stressing over building the perfect page layout to fit into your 12×12 Scrapbook , try out using a traditional Photo Album to organize your photos. MemoryScrapbooks.com carries a wide selection of both photo albums and scrapbooking supplies, so you have everything you need to complete your project. You can still customize and beautify the pages, without sacrificing your goal of creating a wonderful scrapbook that you can enjoy for years to come. Go ahead, be daring. Give it a try and see how easy and fun it can be!

Scrapbooking is Good for You

Feel GoodLife is full of moments that are so joyful and satisfying.  These moments are great, and are to be treasured and remembered forever.  Scrapbooks help us make these moments memories – the times that help balance the scales for the less than wonderful days we have from time to time.

A favorite quote of mine reads, “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”  Bearing this in mind can help you live a better, more fulfilled existence.

Telling yourself a story through pictures and other pieces of the past, or giving yourself some time to sit and complete a project, can be a very therapeutic, enriching exercise.  Does this sound like a familiar activity?  It should – it’s  what we do when we scrapbook!  The benefits of scrapbooking are more than just something that will keep our minds and hands busy.  Scrapbooking is an outlet that can help us forget a day that just didn’t go so well by remembering the times that were just right!

In the end, scrapbooking is a way to remind ourselves that we’ve got the proof in pictures, quotes, and newspaper clippings that we are making the most of our time, love and life!
