Welcome to Ideas For Scrapbook Center!

There is a lot of good information here. It covers scrapbooking albums, quotes, layouts, tips, and much more. Digital scrapbooking is becoming very popular. It’s a great way to complete a scrapbook, in a reasonable amount of time. Pull up a chair, take a look around. If there is something that you would like more information on, let me know. I will do my best to answer any questions. Have a great day!

 

 

Does Anyone Scrapbook With Cricut?

I use my cricut expression for scrapbooking and card making. I have about 50 cartridges. I just recently purchased Artise and Art Philosophy from Close to my Heart.  I am very pleased with both cartridges. Each cartridge has 700 images. They have fonts, shapes, cards, 3-D items. When I first started buying the cartridges, I almost fell on the floor, being that they can retail for $70.00 plus. I purchased most of mine on Ebay and I went with the seller that had free shipping. I paid about $25.00-$30.00. (that was the limit I set for myself). I did purchase some of the Lite cartridges from Walmart, it was 2 for $50.00, you picked what you wanted. I went Michaels and JoAnn’s, but I wasn’t impressed with the prices, especially at Michaels. They don’t let you use the 40% off any regular price item for Cricut items. Let me know if you use cricut and what you think of it. If you have any questions about cricut, let me know. Have a great day!

Scrapbooking Anyone?

Has anyone been working on their scrapbooks lately? With the nice weather, I think we would rather be out enjoying it and we should be. While we are taking trips, spending time with family, don’t forget the camera.  You can never take too many pictures, you may not use them all, but it’s nice to have a lot to choose from. This is a great time of the year to decide what you would like to scrap next. Making plans now, will fill the time spent indoors when winter pays us a visit. Until next time….Have a great day!

Crabs + Computers + Beautiful Music = Inspiration!

This is SO far from the world of scrapbooking, but is inspiring none the less….

I’ll have a separate post explaining my long absence, but for now, watch and be amazed!

What has inspired you lately?

Don’t Give Up On Your (Scrapbook) Dreams

Don’t Give Up On Your (Scrapbook) Dreams

Still trying to get back into the swing….finished the digital scrapbook course from the ScrapGirls. Now I need to practice practice practice.

Meanwhile, I seem to be in the ‘seeking inspiration’ mode. Thank God for Tiny Buddha! Every day I get something inspiring in my IN box. I wish I could be that prolific, but, alas….one-woman-show…yada yada yada….

I was inspired to take some of the Scrapgirls beautiful papers and make an infographic….I still have a long way to go, but I think I might just noodle around with these until I get my digital chops.Continue reading

Watched A Really Mind Blowing Movie Last Night

Watched A Really Mind Blowing Movie Last Night

If you have unlimited energy and are happy with your weight, you can go ahead and skip this post. Scrapbooking is about chronicling your life, and although this is not about scrapbooking per se, it is about life, and more specifically the fuel of life. Food.Continue reading

I’m Back, But Not Scrapbooking Yet.

I’m Back, But Not Scrapbooking Yet.

So after an all too brief battle with pancreatic cancer, my colleague at work mercifully died in her sleep last Saturday. She will be missed.

I still don’t seem to have the motivation to scrap right now. But I know that it will come back to me soon.

Meanwhile, despite ignoring the site for a ridiculously long time (and seriously contemplating selling it)…I was shocked to discover one of my pages went viral. It’s the one with the video about making cute origami scrapbooking affirmations.

Last Saturday, I had nearly 3000 visitors. Wow.

Since that post was about the origami part of the equation, I thought I’d at least do a post about the affirmation part. You can see some of the best affirmations here.

Here’s hoping life is treating you well. Let me know if there’s a scrapbooking topic you’d like me to tackle….because right now, I’m at a loss. Comments, as always are welcome.
