A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books

Scrapbooking

I’ve been scrapbooking since 2002, when I saw some friends posting layouts on a Disney forum. I loved documenting our holidays in Disney World, days out here in the UK and family photos, especially some of the older ones.

I took a break for a few years when I got back into cross stitch and crochet but after sorting out my craft room and seeing just how much stash I had, it was either start using it or get rid and just looking through it got me interested again.

I initially struggled to restart after such a long break. I think I’d forgotten what to do! I’ve been trying different styles and techniques and am hopefully finding my own style again. I’ve been doing challenges on different FB groups which has made me use different items or styles, plus I’ve been doing a few scrapbook classes with Shimelle.

I wanted to be able to see the layouts from different albums together so I’m going to give them each their own gallery page. I’m currently scrapping our 2018 Baltic cruise, in between other things, and am gradually getting earlier albums uploaded to their own pages too.
