I've wanted to start scrapbooking for aaaages because I have so many nice photos that I could do more with than just sticking them on Facebook. So I took the plunge during the January sales and order a shed load of inks, glue and stamps from HobbyCraft at a very reasonable price.
I've just started doing what I want to and I'm trying not to panic that something's going to be in the wrong place because it's my first go. I'm also the queen of clumsiness and am bound to knock something over or fudge it up somewhere. Safe to say, the bottom of my scrapbook is slightly blue from where it slipped onto the ink pad on my lap.
I've chosen to make this scrapbook with photos from our holiday to Disneyland Paris because they're some of the best photos I have and make me happy. Because the book is only small and my photos are big and square I've decided to go with 1 photo per double page to keep it minimalistic. I love how rustic stamping looks and it definitely covers up when I mis-stamp.
I didn't even think about the brown pages when I bought the blank book! But it is cool to see how well colour turns up on it, especially the metallics. As well as stamps I also have washi tape to give that a go, I'm thinking some geometric patterns...
I'd like to keep you updated with my scrapbook progress but I also want to hear your layout ideas! Give me your thoughts, exeperts!
