Craft Week - Using Scraps

Just kidding! Scrapbooking is the mother lode of supplies. They get bigger and more elaborate each year. If you want to make a small scrapbook for a gift, here's what you do. Buy a small album, stick in some pictures and write something about the picture on each page. Right. Then you casually pick up a magazine about scrapbooking. That's when the giant cartoon sledgehammer hits you right on the noggin. Chipboard! Archival ink! More patterned paper than you could possibly carry! At one time anyway. Die cutting machines, embossers, stickers, punches, embellishments, you'll be too tired from shopping to actually make the scrapbook. But remember, you can always keep it simple. Right. Good thing it's so much fun!

Here's some books that will help you not keep it simple when Scrapbooking.
