Scrapbooking Simplified

Besides mentioning us in a recent post, Angie Pedersen's The Blog of Me! offers some wonderful tips and tricks for your scrapping passions. One of our favorites is her post on super-simplifying her scrapbooking in order to keep up with her hobby!

"...I went out and bought a regular slip-in-the-pocket photo album, pulled out my paper scraps, and set to work.  I can't tell you how freeing it was.  I was practically giggling at how fabulous it was to whip my way through three years' of Christmas photos in two hours.  I felt like I was getting away with something, and I LOVED it!"

"Basically you use the pockets for photos as intended, but you can also use the pockets for journaling boxes, or small embellishments.  It's a lot less intimidating that trying to figure out how to design/decorate a whole 12x12."

Angie includes some great photos of her 12x12 photo/scrap albums so you can get a feel for the process. Much less daunting than staring at a blank page!
