I thought I’d share my thoughts on scrap booking with you. I’m thinking it’ll help get me re-motivated. My sister got me into scrap booking about 10 years ago. I went to scrap book parties, bought hundreds of dollars worth of supplies and completed MORE albums than I can even believe.
The most notable albums I completed are the FirstYear albums I made for each of my THREE oldest children. They’ve always loved looking through them, and I’ve had every intention of making the twins their own First Year albums as well. I even have all of the materials. They (the twins) were so persuasive in their pleas for their own albums a few months ago, in fact, I even pulled out all of the supplies I’d need to “build” their album. And, that table sat there for 3 months without one page even being attempted. It was during the holidays though, so I have an excuse. A poor one, but an excuse none-the-less.
The twins are asking for their albums again, so I have a game plan. I’m going to set the table back up with all the needed supplies and I’m actually going to sit down and cut and adhere and create. And present them with their completed albums with all the pomp and fan fare I can muster.
In the meantime, I’ve been doing some cropping and “designing” online.
So, while I’m up to my ears in scrap booking projects, I figure it’s the perfect time to giveaway a few of the things that I’ve found to make me a happy photographer, scrapper and card maker.
First up is a package worth more than $75 from Memory Mixer. All you have to do is pop in the handy dandy CD and go to work. Once you’ve compiled your scrap booking pages, then you can have them printed in a hardbound book and mailed to you. Voila. A complete family heirloom! You’ll find the Memory Mixer giveaway here.
Next up is a package worth $50.00 from Premadehandmade.com. It combines a complete card making kit and a set of 6 nesting dies by Spellbinders. You can find the giveaway here.
Lastly up for grabs is a $20.00 gift certificate for a camera strap slipcover from *Shey* [B]. I want one because I’m convinced that by snazzing up my camera I’ll be a better photographer. You can help be the judge. To enter to win one of your choosing, go here.
