Are you considering starting scrapbooking in 2020? 

It’s confusing in the beginning, but with a well-considered plan you’ll be able to start this creative journey, without a lot of overwhelm!

Let me help you make those first tentative steps into this creative world. I have over 20 years of scrapbooking experience. I’ve taught new and experienced scrapbookers, and I continue to love it!

If you’re already a scrapbooker, these questions and thoughts will help you narrow down your scrapbooking process to make sure you’re achieving the outcome you desire.

Sarah asked:

I am thinking about card making and scrap booking, not really sure where to start, all suggestions welcome.

My first question would be “What is your goal?” Do you want to be crafty? Do you want to make pages to share your stories? Do you love to take photos but want to create more permanence?

Narrowing down your purpose will help you to make the first steps into this creative endeavour. (Often the answer is a mixture, but there’s one goal that stands out above others.)

From there…
