I would describe my level as Intermediate, with an occasional foray into Advanced.
I'm happy with this level.
I make pages to be looked at by my family and friends.
I make pages to tell a story.
I make pages to share memories.
A mistake becomes a design feature.
As in the page above where the lower half of the journaling doesn't follow the lines perfectly.
No-one will even notice, probably. So why worry about it?
I don't buy a lot of stash on a regular basis, which is a good thing.
And in reality, London is very poorly served by craft shops that sell scrapbooking stuff.
However, one product I really, really like is the Project Life range by Becky Higgins.
~ design inspired by Ali Edwards ~I find that I'm using the pocket cards on more and more traditional scrapbook pages and I like the finished look. Plus I'm making a dent in the rather large amount of PL products in my craft space. (There was a great class on Big Picture Classes recently about this very topic. Scrapping with Pocket Cards, not the size of my PL stash!)
two 6x4 photos, one largish piece of patterned paper and a cluster or two of embellishments.
One thing I learned early on was that there is no right way or wrong way to scrapbook. And once you realise that, it's actually rather freeing.
How would you say your scrapbooking has evolved over the years? I know that Sian is currently experimenting with 8.5x11 as a page size.
Traditional scrapbooker or Project Lifer?
Single or double pages?
Sketches or free flow?
