Book Review:Creating Keepsakes Creativity Tips for Scrapbookers

Creativity Tips for Scrapbookers (Leisure Arts #15951) (Creating Keepsakes)This is a compilation of the best of the best  from the 2005-2007 issues when Tracy White was the editor I didn't  discover Creating Keepsakes until early 2006 ,but for me this was pivotal in my decision to really embrace scrapbooking.   I use to hang on to programs from plays ,movie tickets or stuff that I would decoupage onto a shoe box to have a visual reminder.  Everything else went into a photo album.
So fast forward to 2006 where I was just discovering that I should preserve these memories for my kids.
My Father died March 1988 .  There are so many things I'd love to know about him .  Little things .  Now
with the more recent death of my grandmother in 2009 seems to emphasize the importantance just that much more.  However even with the best reasons to scrapbook I often get stuck.  I felt this was just what I needed
Here are the chapters I felt were the most helpful:
  1. Heidi Swapp's 7 Habits for succesful scrapbooking
  2. Got 15 minutes . Get a jumpstart on Ascrapbooking Goal
  3. 10 ways to organize
  4. Tips and Tricks
  5. 4x6 Scrapbooking :Save Time with these Sketches for Standard Prints

get it pretty cheap

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever.
