Scrapbooking Tips and Page Ideas
for Beginners & Pros

Are you looking for scrapbooking tips? Whether you are a beginner, hesitant to take that first step, or a veteran scrapper, addicted for many years, this site is here as a free resource for you!

Not sure where to begin? I completely understand your hesitation. I've been in your shoes. In fact, it took me at least ten years to take that first step - yes, ten!

Here's my story...

I was bit by the scrapbooking bug when my oldest child was just an infant, but it wasn't until he was entering middle school that I worked up the nerve to pull those photos of him and his little brother out of their boring photo albums, and actually put together my first scrapbook layout.

After one layout, however, I was hooked! Why had I waited so long?

When I'm asked to give beginner scrapbooking tips, I'll explain the fundamentals, but I also will say, "Just do it!".

I wasted so many years. Sure, I made mistakes, and so will you, but it's part of the process. My biggest mistake was not the pictures I ruined or the layouts that didn't turn out the way I envisioned. It was waiting too long. However, I am so glad that I did take that first step, because an even bigger mistake would have been to never start at all! Sometimes you just have to jump in, feet first.

There are many things that I love about this hobby, but one is that it's an ongoing learning experience. When I'm searching for scrapbooking page ideas for my photos, I always stumble across new techniques and tools that I have yet to try. In fact, that's how I found out about my favorite scrapbooking tool, the Cricut.

This hobby is fun, it's challenging, and it's a great way to connect with others.

However, I know I have a lot to learn from you too, so I like to view this as more of a community than a website. I'm working on ways to make it easier for you to share your favorite scrapbooking page ideas, tips, and projects - questions too. We have so much to learn from one another, so...
