There is a myth about scrapbooking. It is that it is corny sentimentalism. I don’t think so. Here are some things scrapbooking is and isn’t.

What scrapbooking is not:

  1. Scrapbooking is not always fancy pages; it can be a photo, drawing, or story in a notebook or sketchpad of a story you want to remember.
  2. Scrapbooking is not just for old ladies like me. Everyone has stories to tell, the scrapbooker is the one who controls what is remembered.
  3. Scrapbooking is not something to put off. There is no time like the present to tell a story! Listen to your conversations and start writing your stories down.
  4. Scrapbooking is not hard. Sure, it can become complicated, but it isn’t hard. It can be as simple or difficult as you make it.
  5. Scrapbooking is for hip people because it is not just corny sentimentalism. Did you just read 1 – 4 or not?

What scrapbooking is:

  1. Scrapbooking is a place for the people in your life to be remembered.
  2. Scrapbooking is a FUNN collection of moments which were special.
  3. Scrapbooking is a treasure chest of stories that you tell at Thanksgiving that make you remember the people who aren’t at the table anymore.
  4. Scrapbooking is a way for your mind to travel to the sights, smells, sounds, feels, words, and tastes of your life.
  5. Scrapbooking is the opposite of corny sentimentalism; it is an essential sentimental recollection of you.

If you are ready to tell your story, I can offer suggestions, such as:

  1. Enroll in FUNN University. We create eight cute pages a month using a Close To My Heart workshop kit.
  2. Check out some easy how-to resources: Cut-Above Scrapbooking kit (get the darn calendar), Pocket Scrapbooking, scrapbooking kits (like we use in FUNN University), how-to books, Story by Stacy, a variety of album sizes, and so much more.
  3. Join us this week on my Facebook page as I talk about these products. I’m out to inspire you. ;o)
