I had a great morning! Why? because I was talking about scrapbooking to a new friend! She is not completely new to scrapbooking and has made one page before, which she didn’t like, so I remade that page for her to show how it could look. Thankfully she is very pleased with the end result!
I really enjoyed remaking the page in the sort of colours she likes and the making a “boy themed page” as I don’t have a son, nor do I have any nephews. It’s all girls in our family, so it was a refreshing change. A bit like a “challenge”, but definitely a “Scrapbooking Page Make-over”.
I have written an article showing the “before” and “after” pictures of this layout and it is currently in the May issue of the SimplyScrapbookingNow.com Newsletter which I published yesterday! Here is a sneeky peek of my finished version of the page, but to view the whole article you need to be a subscriber. It’s all free, and only I have a note of your name and email address (so that I can send you the notice about each publication), so there’s no way anyone else will get your details… I know some of you worry about such things, and quite rightly so, I am careful too.
Anyway, this here new friend has a lovely house which her husband built almost single-handedly so I understand. And within it’s walls are some lovely things, a feast for a designer’s eye I can tell you! Lace and sparklies, beautiful materials, lovely patterns and colours… it was fun!
And, she sent me an email this evening of a “mocked up” (ie not stuck down yet) 12×12 layout… and wow what a quick learner. I think this lady is going to enjoy scrapbooking “BIG TIME”. And I hope I can join her on her journey! I’m so pleased.
So… another convert?… tick!
