Wedding and Honeymoon Favorites

Even though I have a wedding album and a handmade honeymoon album, I still wanted something I can frame and put on my wall.  When I saw this sketch I thought this would make a perfect 12 x 24 framed layout.  Often what we do as scrapbookers is not on display in the traditional sense so I seized this opportunity to display a few of my favorite shots from our wedding and our honeymoon.

3 Scrapbook Supplies I Never Buy at Full Price

3 Scrapbook Supplies I Never Buy at Full Price

Earlier in my scrapbooking career, I would see gorgeous new paper lines and lose my mind purchasing 2-3 sheets of each  sheet within a line if the paper was double-sided. If there were tags, quotes or sayings on one side I definitely had to get multiples so that I had “enough” to use the tags, journal cards, etc. and still be able to use the pattern on the back.

I know the “within reason” is different for everyone.

Whatever the cost for the workshop or class, there are some things to consider.  Like, what is the class really worth? I have to ask myself, am I paying $$ or $$$ because of the expert teaching the class or does the project really interest me?

Top reasons for signing up for a class:

New Flip and Fold Scrapbook Mini

Not exactly a brand new flip and fold scrapbook mini from a design standpoint, but new in the sense that I made another one with a completely different color scheme/paper line. Many of the inserts and pages are decorated differently as well. I used different edge punches to give this one a new look.

This is the same mini album that was featured in Scor-Pal’s July 2017 Newsletter.
