    Is anyone still about? I LOVE to scrapbook, but haven't had time since DS was born. I'd love to start getting back into it soon.

    Here are some of my layouts.

    Thanks hun! :D I'm really not a creative person at all. I used to subscribe to a monthly kit where you would get all the matching bits and pieces so you just had to put things where you wanted them. Makes it easier! :)

    I have an amazing little shop in my town, it's called Kismet Crafts, and I love it! I could spend so much in there. They do a craft day for £5 a person, I'm thinking of going! One day when DH can have LO, I think I'm going to bring my mum and aunty too!

    I still haven't started my scrapbooks! I've just had 250 pictures printed of LO between the ages of 0-3 months! So I need to go through them, most are just going in a normal album and the special ones will go in the scrapbook!

    Lucy there's a really good craft place in victoria centre :) It's in the market, near the back in the middle. It's really cheap, and they have looooooooads of bits :thumpup:
    Or, look on ebay, search suehallam. It tells you about the shop in the market too x

    I have some scrapbooking supplies but I haven't done anything yet. Maybe I'm afraid that it won't come out good. I have a lot of pics from my wedding - maybe I should start with those...

    I wish there was a nice little scrapping shop near me! Mind you, it would probably leave me even more skint than i am now, so maybe not! :lol:

    Just get stuck in hakuna! I look at my first layouts and think that they're a bit pants, but the enjoyment is in the doing. You will learn what you think looks good as you do more. Plus you can always print the same photos out again for a redo later on if you really want to! :)

    Yep, I agree, just sit down and start, the ideas will flow!

    Also, I put all the pictures of LO (that I'm not scrapping) into an album Saturday, LO would not stop looking through saying "ooh" or "wow" or"Daddy!"

    Question for you ladies hope can answer for me. I am not typically a scrapbooker, not that creative. But I did recieve a premade scrapbook for a baby book, that basically just have to add the photo to and its done. My question is though, how do you attache the photos safely so they don't go bad over time? Is there a special glue that you use or tape? and how do you prevent rubbing on the photos?
