Scrapbooking is a craft which brings photos, painting and many other creative steps together. Have you tried scrapbooking? Do you enjoy it, and do you still do it?

I was introduced to scrapbooking about 13 years ago and loved it. I don't do enough of it, but when I do scrapbook it gives does bring as sense of accomplishment! ;)
I did a scrap book for my first son, to capture his first 6 months as a baby. The aim was that I would then capture special memories and also scrapbook these with a mix of photos and other bits and pieces. I enjoyed scrapbooking, and I'm pleased as punch with what I achieved, but it takes quite a time to get it all looking right and I found that it's quite a costly little habit. Sadly, the scrapbook only got as far as his first 6 months and for my second son, I've not got round to doing his at all yet. I think it's a beautiful end result, but it's not become a favoured hobby of mine as such.
I have tried it, but I don't really think that it is my thing. I would do it occasionally, but not a lot.
Yes - I love it. Wish I could do it more often though.
It is a lot of fun, but I feel now has had it's day.
And a little old-hat.I did it a long time ago.It was a great hobbie, and it did help a lot of people house bound to have something to look forward too.It still can of course, and with some people....they took it to a whole new level.
It became huge in the States, and they just kept getting better and better, I'm not sure it will die off completely.
I have seen some really bad, and some that are just so lovely, you wonder how they have these ideas.
No.. I was interested in it for a while, but was working full time with little kids at home so just didn't have the time. These days I have gotten into creating photo books - I just upload all my pictures online and put them into a design of my own creation. It's fast, I don't have to worry about storing little bits and bobs, and the creations are just as satisfying.
I prefer traditional photo albums (perhaps because I am creatively challenged), but I do like the look of scrap books. I think, when given as gifts, they are very personal and thoughtful.

I've done 3 albums for particular reasons but I'm not a fanatic with scrapbooking. One was like a family history with pics of grandparents, parents, siblings etc. which I gave to my sister for her birthday.

The other was all about my Mum which I did not long after she passed away - she used to write down lovely little sayings that she either heard or read so I put each one of these on a separate page with a picture of her - from when she was a baby & throughout the years to not long before she died. I gave this to my Dad as a keepsake for him to have a look at occasionally & it was quite therapeutic for me actually creating the album.

The other little album is all about my kitties that I've had over the years - I have so many cute pics that it is great to keep them in one album together with sayings about our feline friends.
Yes I have tried scrapbooking. I made a few memory books as gifts and enjoyed it immensely in the past. Don't really have time now to work on those though.

No. Haven't the time.
Good for people, though, to have a hobby of some description.

Mine's being culturally enhanced by going to the Theatre.
Marvellous experiences which live-on in memory!

Spoke to Tom Burlinson after his beautiful singing of Sinatra songs, last Friday! What a thrill!

Met & spoke with David Suchet after his performance in 'The Last Confession'. That WAS really exciting!
I have enough stuff in my workroom to start a store. I do scrapbooks and make cards, I also sell pages 4 u ready made pages so that all you have to do is add the photo for those who are artistically challenged. I love it.
Beaches and sea sides should be in blue and white, when I do sea pages or pages with shores on them I add real sand on the bottom of the pages or around the sides with very tiny sea shells that I use to find. It is amazing what you can add to pages. When I do heritages I use old ads and cut outs from old magazine from the 40's and 50's. I also cut out all kinds of saying from books, magazines and news papers and add as captions to pictures, Try it is works on so many ways.
