So, here's my first question for Sheila. What is the most fun you have had with paper?
I think the most fun I have had with paper-as it relates to scrapbooking (since we are counting down to National Scrapbooking Day) was when I "let go" of the need for patterned paper. Now to explain....I was drawn into all the hype surrounding new releases of patterned papers just like every other scrapbooker. What is there to get excited about with plain colored cardstock? Not a whole lot. But all those pretty patterned papers? Oh boy! And I would buy single sheets and paper packs. And my stash grew bigger and bigger with each new release but I never used patterned paper on my scrapbook layouts. Sure, I liked to use them on cards or other crafts, but once I realized that my particular scrapbook style consisted of mainly three things-photos, journaling and cardstock, I was a much happier scrapbooker.
|Mini album with only photos, journaling spots and black cardstock.|
|Accordion album with large photos, word strips and cardstock.|
Now, my question for Maura is this: What is the ONE most favorite craft related item that you have ever made?
