I am a mom who treasures every moment I spend with my children. Because the moments I spend are so important to me, a big hobby of mine is scrapbooking. The past few years I have been into digital scrapbooking and photo books that I create online, but I just recently, I have picked up my scissors and scrapbooking tools again and have gotten back into traditional scrapbooking!
It’s been fun! The past few weeks I have been working on scrapbooking my family’s photos from this year. I started from January and have worked my way to September 2013 so far. I generally adhere a few photos to each page (most often 3-4 per page), add some embellishments like stickers or pretty photo mats, and write in some text to describe each photo. I have scrapbooked so many photos so far that I have to add in some more scrapbook pages!
My Scrapbooking Faves
Fiskars Portable Photo Trimmer
I use my Fiskars photo trimmer often for cropping photos and for sizing decorative scrapbook paper and photo mats for my scrapbook pages. I like that the Fiskars photo trimmer is small and lightweight, so I can easily tote it with me when I join friends for our ladies’ night scrapbooking sessions!
Fiskars Photo Rounder
Scotch Photo Splits
4.5-Inch by 6.5-Inch Mat Stacks
Scrapbooking Letter Stickers
I frequently purchase sticker packs of scrapbook stickers to add words and titles to my scrapbook pages. The stickers add some color to my pages, and keep my pages free of my messy handwriting!
