Scrapbooking Resources


Scrapbooking Resources neededLooking for scrapbooking resources?  These only scratch the surface, but they’re some of my favorites.

Incorporating Narratives into Your Scrapbook Pages:

When we look back through scrapbooks, we love the artistic pages and the fun photos. What we really yearn for, however, are the stories behind the shots.  Here are some great resources for incorporating journalling and narratives into your pages.

In her post, How to write with narrative and scene in your scrapbook page,” Debbie Hodge presents beautiful examples of narratives integrated into a hand-crafted scrapbook page.

That said, Debbie Hodge is, in my humble opinion, the master at all things scrapbooking and elevates the “story-telling” behind scrapbooking to an art form.  Scrapbooking-Resources-at-Get-it-scarppedTalk about scrapbooking resources! Perusing her site, Get It Scrapped, is definitely worth the time.

A simple, yet beautiful, example of a handwritten narrative on a scrapbook layout: Fall Concert posted on Two Peas in  a Bucket.

My Pinterest Scrapbooking and Paper Craft  board has pins of projects I’ve come across that do a good job of sharing memories through scrapbooking or paper crafts.
