Christian was out of town for the past week, so I started digging around my desk/craft area. I decided that I needed to finally finish my JMU (college) senior year scrapbook. I graduated in 2004, so it has only taken 10 years to get done! It was probably back in 2004 that I got my first supplies from Creative Memories to complete my high school scrapbook. Since then, I had completed my first two college year scrapbooks, my brother’s high school scrapbooks, plus a bunch of other books.
I had all the pictures plus any memorabilia stored in folders in date order for awhile now, so it was pretty easy to finish this book in a couple afternoons.
Cutting all the pictures down to the correct sizes. There are so many supplies & tools out there to make scrapbooking easy. I know I have a small supply compared to serious scrapbookers/card makers.
Organizing the pictures on the pages.
Zots are clear, acid-free adhesives that come in three round (dot) sizes, small, medium & large. They are the best invention ever! It makes attaching all the photos and papers so fast.
My workspace. Note the iPad set up in front, so I could catch up on some US TV shows. I mostly have been trying to watch all the episodes of Parenthood.
To be honest, this might be my last scrapbook for awhile. I think it is faster to create the online photo books either through Shutterfly, Mixbook or Blurb. You can still customize them & I even add blank pages to the back of the books, to attach ticket stubs or programs, so I can still save those items.
