What is scrap booking ?

What is scrap booking ?


Scrap booking is a method for preserving personal and family history in the form of a scrapbook. Typical memorabilia include photographs, printed media, and artwork. Scrapbook albums are often decorated and frequently contain extensive journalling. 


Essentially as the name suggests scrap booking is to save your photos and memorabilia on a medium with writing like the date and any incident that occurred etc. Any thing flat enough to glue down can be used for scrap booking and same goes for embellishments.


The history of scrap booking goes back to the 1500 but the modem day scrapbook that changed Crafting and memory preserving happened in the 1980 when the 12 by 12 page layouts where born and inserted into page protectors that were stored in Ring binders.


Today scrap booking is not just art it is an industry ! These days, scrap booking can be done in so many ways. You can use beautiful colored paper, stickers, drawings, photos, and so many other supplies. Scrap booking is like a visual diary, capturing all your creativity, thoughts feelings, and memories in a little book.



There are many different types of scrap booking albums to choose from, and it can be very intimidating if you don't know anything about them or what the differences are.


The most common sizes are 12"x12" and A 4 albums . If you stick with these sizes, you won't have any trouble finding background papers and sheet protectors at the store. Even the major chain discount stores are starting to carry scrapbook supplies.



These albums are usually smaller and cute to give away as a special gift or to scrapbook a special occasion.


12”x12” are becoming much more popular these days. You can get away with buying regular sheet protectors sold in the office supply store instead of special 12”x12” scrapbook sheet protectors. You can also use a regular three-ring photo album to hold your pages, which are inexpensive. They also stand up and store nicely on a bookshelf when they are this size. There are advantages to both types, so ultimately it is a matter of personal preference.


Besides the size, you will also need to consider what type of pages the scrapbook holds. The three most common are to have a three ring binder scrapbook, a post-bound scrapbook with top-loading pages, or a scrapbook bound with non-removable pages, without any sheet protectors.


The most economical type scrapbook is the three ring binder type. Pages can be added at any time easily, and placed within the middle of the album. You can use regular acid-free photo safe sheet protectors as the pages and just slip your completed page into the protective sleeve. The disadvantage is that for a two page layout you will have a gap where the rings are, so the layout will not be seamless.

Scrap booking on canvas

Hello Friends ,

Scrapbook page mounted on canvas is one of my favourites to create as it brings together my love for Scrap booking and Canvas art or mixed media in one place.


Today I'm sharing 12x12 Wood mounted canvas creation , I have used Bob and Betty Roseate -Scrapbook Paper - 12" X 12" Paper for this.


I have used Mudra Chipzebs for the embellishments and frames of the layout . 


I have created the layout first. I love planning my layouts with pictures and coordinating them with colours in them but this time I had to play it the other way round. This is a love theme based creation made to be gifted for an anniversary and hence I played with these lovely colours and ephemera's. 


I have used stencils in random places in black to high light the creation and totally love the effect it has created !


I have added flower embellishments and scrabble letters on the Layout. I have then adhered the creation on the canvas using Modpodge and waited for a day to dry.. 

I have tried canvas art/ scrap booking on canvas many times and totally love how it looks once it goes on the wall.


                   

A big THANK YOU to each one, who has stood by my side, trusted my talents and appreciated my hard work! Thank you for those beautiful feedback and compliments I've received .

That is all for today , Have a crafty day!

Mother's Day 2019 Cards and Gift tags

Hello Friends 

This years Mother's day Creations that I have handcrafted 


Pattern papers are my strength and I am glad I decided to work with them as a focal point for these creations .


Play to your strengths...Strengths are not just activities you’re good at, they’re activities that strengthen you. A strength is an activity that before you’re doing it you look forward to doing it; while you’re doing it, time goes by quickly and you can concentrate; after you’ve done it, it seems to fulfill a need of yours. 


Knowing your strengths offers you a better understanding of how to deal with your weaknesses — and helps you gain the confidence you need to address them.Instead of worrying about what you are not good at and trying everything you can to be good at it, why not play to your strengths.



I enjoyed playing with papers again and my stickers stacks !


 Here is one more card where I have created the background with stencils and adhered all the die cuts.


Sharing along mini tags or gift tags that go along with the Mother's day Gifts !





I love to mix and match and play with my craft supplies rather that assemble a set kit , sometimes they turn out to be wonders sometimes they do not and I am willing to risk it... that what makes my creations stand out isn't it worth it?

MOM you are the Best - Mother's Day 2019 Card

Hello Friends ,
Mother's Day 2019 Card

I have be been creating cards for Mother's day this season and falling in love with Stamping all over again. I have made this 5 x 7" card for Mother's Day 2019. 

MOM you are the Best -  Mother's Day 2019 Card
I had a CAS design in mind and I have gone with Big and Bold chipboard embellished letters to create the "Mom" sentiment. The chipboard letters are from DCWV chipboard embellishments set.
 I have replaced the center letter O with and stamped image of a hedgehog on a circle die cut center. 
I have used Itsy Bitsy CLEAR STAMPS - LOOKING SHARP stamp set which is a small stamp set . I have coloured it using copics markers and die cut using my Sizzix Big shot die cutting machine and circle die cut. To complete the creation I have used Heart shaped Buttons and daisy punched boarder. There is a small sentiment on the bottom saying 'You are the best" perfect for MoM's day card isn't it!!
