I have thousands of photos saved on the computer that I would love to do something with… as well as a few of the old fashioned variety. One of my goals is to sort through them all and learn the craft of scrapbooking so I can give these precious photos a place to be displayed and admired rather than just sitting on a hard drive.
Warning! I am only new at this…
A while ago I went to what I was told would be a scrapbooking class. It turned out to be a party plan to sell scrapbooking materials. One tool they used to sell their products was ask you to bring a few photos to the class to make a page.
I rummaged through old photo boxes trying to come up with a theme. I found three photos of my husband and daughter from when she was only a babe. The common theme is the adoring way they are looking at each other. (Hint: as this was my first project I scanned the photos in case I destroyed them). The result is the below page.
As this was done in a party plan environment it doesn’t have the usual embellishments that you find on most pages. I have thought about adding them but I actually like it’s simplicity for a first attempt.
Do you scrapbook? I would love to hear your ideas.
