Scrapbooking is a hugely popular hobby amongst crafty types, but it has never held much interest for me, which is strange since I have always loved designing collages and magazine layouts. But this year was my grandma's 80th birthday, and I thought the perfect gift for her would be a scrapbook of photos from her party.
I didn't get a whole lot of scrapbook supplies. I just stuck with a standard book, some paper, a few tags, glue, tape, and markers.
I tried to make it as personal as possible, separating the photos and creating cute layouts that I thought my grandma would like. I also chose pink floral patterns for the scrapbook and the paper, because that is definitely her style.
I gave it to her a couple of days ago, and she absolutely LOVED it. In the future, I think I might go with a more digital version of scrapbooking. I think I could make something a little more advanced with InDesign. But this was definitely a success for my first attempt.
Have you had any experience with scrapbooking?
