Making Scrapbooks the Cheapest Way

Jeremiah Lee 0

Scrapbooking is a creative way of recording all the memories you acquired through the years. It is like having a photo album but with a more creative touch. This may involve colored papers, pins, clips, buttons, and other materials that are used in arts and crafts. While many people enjoy the making of this, there are those who still prefer the good ‘ole photo albums. This is because they think that investing in a scrapbook is an expensive activity. 

 

Contrary to what many believe, scrapbooking doesn’t always need to be expensive. Yes, all the crafting materials can be bought at your local bookstore but you can make your own too. In fact, the latter gives off a better appeal because it will give your scrapbooks a more personal touch. Plus, it won’t cost you anything, and it will even help you recycle and lessen what you consider your trash. You can use old newspapers, for instance, to build your own scrapbook or some papers that you are going to dispose of already. 

 

In creating the actual pages of your scrapbooks, you can have your recycled papers painted with watercolor or acrylic. You can also use dried leaves to cover them up and act as a background for the entries you are going to put there. Other choices would be scraps of colored papers or just make a collage of the pictures you are going to include.  

 

In designing every page, there are a lot of choices that are available for you. For instance, you can use old button and beads you have at home. You can also utilize needs and threads, and/or some of the old scraps of clothes you have. You can also use wires or shoelaces. With the help of crafting tools like a cutter, scissors, and glue, all of these can come a long way.  

 

If you are a techie and into everything digital, perhaps you’d be happy to know that you can do scrapbooking digitally now too. Here, you won’t need any tools at all or any arts and crafts. Instead, what you need is the talent in manipulating colors and other effects. Although this does not bring the same appeal as actually doing things your own, this is a lot less bulky and not messy at all. Plus, you can even have it published on your social media sites as an online scrapbook and/or bring it anywhere with you especially if you need to sell house fast in Orlando, Florida. Online tools enable the making of this. Although there are applications that can be used for free to make this, there are also those which can only be accessed when you subscribed. Either way, you can maximize the tools you have to create something you can be proud of. 

 

Truly, scrapbooking in any form can till bring wonder to the maker. Not only can it be a stress reliever and a source of relaxation, it also allows your creative side to come out and play. What more is that scrapbooking enables you to preserve your memories in a creative way.

We are glad to have new people visiting every time. We are happier however, if you are here to stay. Please feel free to look around. We always make everything here the best stuff so you’d have something creative to bring with you when you think of starting your own project. Every material used in the projects here could be found within your household. Remember, not all that is pretty is expensive.

So what are you still waiting for? Go through your stuff now to set aside the materials you’ll need for your very own scrapbook? Be sure to raid also your garages for stuff to be recycled. If your garage doors are as sturdy as mine, weather-stripped, insulated, and maintained by the best Tucson garage door repair company then you’ll have more chances of good stuff coming your way!

“It was a hobby before it became anything else.”

This is my usual response when asked how this blog came to be. This is the truth. However, the reason why I wanted it to become public is to help mothers like me cope with the everyday stress of life – by being creative. In addition to this, you are also provided a way to preserve your memories to look back to in the future.

Your kids would even love it because it is not simply a good ‘ol boring photo album. Depending on your creativity, you could start a whole new family tradition. Admit it, it still puts a smile on your face when you think about the first movie date. Bumping to that movie ticket you kept as a memento brings back all the first feelings you’ve had to your husband. It makes you feel the same love all over again.

Why not let it become constant by putting it in a scrapbook? That way, you’d be able to preserve it the more. You’d be able to show how much you treasure it by putting it up to be seen by others. Also, you could put your feelings into words by including a short note with some little hearts to it made up of colored pens, art papers, or even felt papers for more aesthetics. Interesting, right?

The main goal of this site is to give you ideas in doing exactly this – scrapbooking. We teach you different ways in how to make moments more memorable. We make it possible to transform bits and pieces of papers, threads, beads, buttons, and other everyday materials into part of your most treasured memories. We also create a place where you could maximize your creative juices.

In Scrappincricut.org we also have a community where you could exchange design ideas with others. Learn how to make origami from the best people.

You think you had it all figured out with Scrappincricut? Then you are in for a lot of surprise because just recently, we started funding and coming up with events that invite get-togethers to all Scrappincricut enthusiasts, and community members out there.

Designs, Et Al

The launch of this program themed Designs, Et Al was made last June, and from then we are now holding this on a monthly basis.

This event features a party in which all scrapbooking lovers out there would come together for several sessions of fun and excitement. Here, we share ideas in terms of making new pages designs for scrapbooks. We also have contests as well during the event in which participants would make the best scrapbook page. The winner takes home a scrapbooking kit, and a cash price worth $500. This was made possible by our generous sponsors.

Watch out for the monthly schedule of this event. Who knows, you may be the next best designer to bag home the bacon – err the prizes.

See and Sew

Watch out for See and Sew, our new project in partnership with Crochet and Things, the biggest and leading supplier of stitching and crocheting needs.

This features talks and seminars about incorporating crocheting, stitching, and embroidery to making your scrapbooks extra special. Among the topics discussed here is the how-to’s of stitching your own name on the cover of your scrapbooks. We also teach you how to make crochet covers that would make your scrapbooks more adorable.

Included in the $79 you’ll pay for the registration in this event is a starter sewing, and crocheting kit, and one crocheted cover for a standard scrapbook. You could add an additional $5 if you want to add your name on it. This is available when you register online or during the event itself.

Watch out for more events coming up soon. Sign up to our newsletter so you won’t miss anything!
