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
10 Tips for  Better Photography

this is only a partial list I paid for retail but if you go to the Creating Keepsakes Conferences You can
get it pretty cheap

About This blog

My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
