Frugal Scrapbooking - thinking outside the box

Many people mistakenly believe they cannot afford to scrapbook. Not true, I say! As with any hobby, there may be some initial start up costs and investments; however, there are always bargains abound!

Do you think that a non-scrapbooker will know whether you spent $30 on a kit or found bits & pieces and put several pages together for $4?

Creativity is part of scrapbooking, and my belief is that we are trying to preserve memories. It doesn't matter if you don't keep up with the latest and greatest! Protecting your photos and mementos, along with recording your important events and thoughts is what scrapbooking is all about.

What can you find within your own 4 walls already to get you started? Here's an idea to start you off:

  1. Ruler
  2. Pencil
  3. Scissors

Let's start a list!

Feng Shui in scrapbooking?

I've always wanted to learn about Feng Shui, but I just haven't had the time. I came across this site:

http://stamping.thefuntimesguide.com/

It's an interesting read on how to incorporate Feng Shui into your scrapbooking. I'm sure many of us do this already, but we just didn't know it. Let's see something of yours that is 'feng shui-like'! I'll go search through my books, too, to find something......
