Project: Scrapbook Pages

Well, I get up early on Saturday's just to watch Scrapbook Memories on PBS; it comes on at 7:30 AM here, and I just LOVE this show!! There is a certain teacher on this show (Stacy Julian) that is only on there maybe 3 or 4 minutes with her tips, but I just absolutely love her advice; it is simple, complete, and doable.
So I did some research and found out that she has her own company for online scrapbooking classes. You can find it at ~~ and she has two free classes there to help get you started, so that is what I am doing. I used to be really into scrapbooking. I had all the stuff, paper, tools, cutters, you name it, and a couple of years ago I got rid of about 95% of what I had, because I was so overwhelmed at the time. You're probably wondering if I regret that move huh? Well, not really. I do wish I'd have kept one of my self-healing boards and maybe one of my circle cutters, but really it's totally fine without it.
So that is actually why I love Stacy's site, because it gets you back to the basics and simplicity of scrapbooking and what it is really all about?: Preserving your memories!!
In this first class you use four 4x4 albums (I found this one at Michael's $3.99 not on sale). Their not actually that easy to find.
So this first album is entitled: All About Us!! So this is my title page: aren't these chipboard letters cute? (These were 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby this week!!)

So here are some of the pages that I made to put pics in. When I get them complete w/pics I'll post.

Here is another cute page!!

This is a very cute page!!

So what do you think? Really cute huh?!! Thank you for reading this blog and thank you to those of you who talk to me through comments!! Just the best!!

So if you don't leave comments, go ahead, give it try!! You'll love it!!

Love and Hugs,

  1. Hi Dawn,
    I've not heard of that show but gonna see if it comes on in our area. I used to scrapbook ALL the time but have been so busy painting lately it's taken a back seat. Fabulous album!
    Have a great day.
