Over on scrapbook.com (my other home) their week long challenge for National Scrapbook Day was to make a mini album about me. After stressing for 3 days deciding what I was going to make (and wasting time thinking) I opted for a book about my scrapbooking life.
This is the first time I have made a mini album. It was a lot of fun. I hope to make more but I worry about where to store and display them after it's finished.
Here is the cover. The title a phrase I say often and has kind of become my motto for this hobby. I tried to use a variety of supplies. The entire book is in my favorite colors, green, black and white.
Page one is about how I got started with scrapbooking. I can honestly say it's all my husband's fault. On page 2 I describe my scrap space and included a pic. I used a black and white pic to keep the color tones of the album consistent.
Then page 3 lists all the reasons I love to scrapbook! Page 4 describes how my style and techniques have evolved since I started. I'm happy to report that I have come a long way. I tried to use different embellishments and tools I have acquired over the years.
On page 5 I used different words that describe my current style. Then on page 6 I listed all the paper crafting items I have made. The picture is me, at my scrap desk, making mailboxes and cards for my kids' Valentine's Day party.
This is the back cover. I used 'my' stamp as the focal point. It's fun to say you have your own stamp.
This was a lot of fun and I look forward to making more.
