I had a lovely conversation about scrapbooking with a lady I met this week - we shared our reasons for loving our mutual hobby. For my new friend it was all about preserving her family history for her children and her children's children for generations to come.
I don't have children so my reasons are a little different - yes I hope my nieces appreciate my albums but my primary reason for scrapping is so I can look back and remember the fun things that have happened to me, the beautiful places I have been, the people who matter to me and all the other things that I have to be thankful for. It is so much easier to look back over my photos when they are in an album that it is when they are in boxes or when they are on my phone or computer.
As our conversation continued, my new friend confessed that she hardly ever scraps any more as she just does not have the time. I do understand what she means - taking the time to make a 12x12 page is a real treat and I love that sometimes I can spend that time creating, but it just is not always possible.
That is where for me Project Life from Stampin' Up! kicks in. I can use the pocket pages to help me go from this a table covered with over 300 photos to this in just an evening.
Another evening in front of the TV and I had put the Project Life Cards in the gaps and there is just the writing to do.
What I love most about this is that it is done and now I can take my time and make any 12x12 pages I want to add to that album.
My friend was really excited about the prospect of finding such a quick way to get caught up and then to keep up to date with her memory keeping and I am excited for her too as I know she is going to love getting it done as well as looking back through the photos once she has finished.
