    Organize! Get a cabinet to keep everything in one work space so you won’t be all over the house!

    Enjoy every minute of this wonderful hobby. Don’t feel pressured to scrap all your photos, just relax and scrap the memories that make you happy

    I don’t scrapbook, but this would be great incentive to begin!
    Thank you, CFL!

    Create a cutout that is slightly bigger than a 4×6 photo. Use the cut out as a stencil for quick watercolor backgrounds for your photos that are perfect every time.

    For an old-world affect, tear pieces of brown paper bags, crumple them up, then decoupage them onto your item. Let them get wrinkled as you go, overlap, and then add some distress ink. Looks like weathered leather!

    My tip is to remember to keep the page in the same color family and theme. Don’t use an embellishment unless it fits the theme of the page. And always think texture, texture, texture.

    Use your own hand writing. It’s more personal and it makes it special. Especially if you plan to keep the scrapbook part of the family for years to come.

    I’m a cardmaker rather than scrapper, but my best tip is to think outside the box on how to use your supplies. Heart punches can be used to make butterfly wings. Glue can be used as an “emboss resist” medium. Inks and sprays can change the entire character of patterned papers. Thanks for the chance to win!!

    Get organized before you start so you don’t waste time hunting for the supplies you need.

    Organization, I keep my paper, embellishments, ribbon each in a specific area so it is easier to find.

    If you shop at bulk stores like Sam’s/Costco & you buy gum/candy, save the boxes they’re packed in. You can upcycle into cute little arrangements, trinket boxes, etc.

    Don’t rush! Take it slow and don’t make a mistake by trying to get it done too quick

  13. Debbie

    I use small envelopes (recycled window ones work great) to hold words and phrases I cut out of magazines, etc. I try to keep them organized by subject.

    I don’t really scrapbook, I make cards and papercrafts with the scrapbook paper and extras. Love to use the papers for decoupage. My craft surfaces have been covered with scrap papers, then sealed clear poly. You can transform ANYTHING with scap paper! Thanks for the freebies!

    oooh, a scrapbooking prize! Right up my alley! I love cardmaking, and scrapbook products are awesome for that!
    My best tip… keep on hand plenty of the basics, like adhesives and pop dots. So much better than running out in the middle of a project!

  16. Jean Snider

    Same tip for all crafting: Be organized, keep plenty of supplies on hand and take your time to make something the way you want it done.

    If you’re page is about your child, let your child make some artwork to be used as the background.
