I found this terrific article “5 Steps to Becoming Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker” by Wendy Smedley and Aby Garve at Scrap Simple Magazine site. It outlines five simple steps to becoming an organized and inspired scrapbooker.
Organizing means you won’t waste valuable time digging through stacks (or computer files) of photos and boxes of letter stickers, searching for the perfect pieces for your next layout.
I love how this article addresses we all think differently and need to organize based on how we “view” our supplies. ie. one persona will see a paper as blue, another as polka dot, another as a winter theme inspiration.
We need to recognize we all have different needs (like homeschool approaches). Understanding your storage needs may be different from your friends.
The article spans 6 beautifully laid out pages in my favorite colors.
The article ask a question I would like to know about you: Why do you scrapbook?
- to organize photos
- to preserve family history
- to share stories and thoughts
- for a creative outlet
- for social interaction
- to releave stress
- to connect with family
- to create gifts and express love
