    • To start scrapbooking, start scrapcollecting; compiling keepsakes from your journeys. You can also start a journal recording dates and details.You can do digital scrapbooks or hardcopy books.

      Happy travels, memories and crafting!

  1. I`ve been thinking about starting scrap booking to at least record my travels, but I feel like there are so many supplies you need to have a decent final result. Any ideas for scrapbooking for less?

    • The wonderful thing about scrapbooking is that you can use scraps of anything to make wonderful works of art. You can use finds from your trips such as ticket stubs, buttons, pictures, postcards,magazines, newspapers and labels. Just about anything that adds to your memories. You can use an old album and decoupage the cover with fabric from an old garment, magazine pages or newspaper.
      So get started with an adhesive, craft scissors or paper trimmer and a few sheets of paper and add some imagination..

      Happy Crafting!
