Find Out About Friday - Why Start Scrapbooking?

I don’t know about you but I think photos are meant to be looked at and our personal stories are meant to be told.  I love hearing about the things that have happened to my friends and family and when those stories are illustrated by a photo its even better.  As a child I loved listening to my grandparents telling me about their childhoods and sharing the little details that must have seemed so every day to them at the time but which to my mind were extraordinary.  I wish I had captured those stories as I would love to experience them all again.  There are also lots of things from my childhood I would like to remember more clearly.

Scrapbooking is a wonderful way to capture those stories and tell them in a way that will be fantastic to look through for years and years to come.  

Your photos wont languish on a computer somewhere, or if did get printed won’t be just shoved in a box or in a drawer, they will be somewhere for everyone to enjoy whenever they want to.  You won’t find yourself scrabbling through your mind trying to remember when and where they were taken or who that person on the left next to your Mum.

Additionally Scrapbooking is a great way to relax and is great for those of us who enjoy making things but find giving away their creations hard – unlike a card when you scrapbook the idea is to keep it!  It is also great for those of us who love pretty papers – when you scrapbook with them you use them and can enjoy them forever.

Does that sound good to you?  As we go into the new year why not take up scrapbooking?  Would you like some help?  I have two things that could be just what you are after ...

A Start Scrapping Taster Session – join me and learn the basics of Scrapbooking as you complete your first page.  You will be given all the supplies and all the tuition you need.  Your kit will even contain some extra goodies so you can continue creating at home.  At the session you will complete a page similar to this and you can pick any theme you would like.  It could be a special holiday, it could be children, or your every day life.
