    Default Scrapbooking NEWBIE !!

    Hi everyone ...

    Well I've done it .... lol .... I've started to buy things and I'm looking at making a baby book for my little boy.

    I thought about using the first few pages to go back into my past as I was a baby etc, but I'm having a difficult time positioning the pictures as they "look old" lol.

    What about a make shift frame with paper etc?

    Is there a group that gets together for scrapbooking?

    Any advice would be great lol ty

    Why not take a class? If you check out the scrapbooking stores in our area, they all offer classes for newbies.

    For ideas, check out:

    You should definitely go to Michael's craft store tomorrow (Saturday) from 1-5. It is scrapbook discovery day. They show you how to do some different things and you get to use their tools and stuff - and best of all - they provide all the supplies for the make it take it's which are FREE! This time around there are only 2 make it take it's, but sometimes there are as many as 5. Michael's does these days every few months, the different companies sponsor it so you will ultimately but their stuff.
    It can be a good free into to scrapbooking because the staff are there to show you how to do the project.
    Here is the link:

    I'm new at it, too!
    I just surfed around on the net to different sites and looked at what others have posted for inspiration. I just found a friend of the family that does it and my new neighbour does as well, so looking forward to getting together with them. Might try to make one of Leslie's crops in the future...probably not till the new year.
