I am definitely craft-challenged. For awhile, my inability to scrapbook made me scoff at those who successfully scrapbooked:
"It's SO lame when people try to take cool pictures and make cool memories and stuff ."
"I have like a thousand better things to do- like play Nancy Drew computer games with my best friend and eat cheese."
Ah yes, to be completely self-unaware.
I now embrace my inability to be crafty and have found a rather easy way to scrapbook.
I'd like to share.
One of my best friends and roommates from college, Rachel, is probably the most crafty person I know. Although she'd be able to make a blank scrapbook page look like magic, she started to use this scrapbooking kit called Project Life. It's seriously the easiest thing for someone like me. I'll show pictures of what I've done so far:
You start with a few basic things:
1. A core kit. Most of those pretty pieces of paper came in the core kit and are made specifically for the vellum sheets. The one I am using is the Kraft Core-Kit.
2. Vellum sheets- the reason why this project is so easy. There are various packets of said sheets that have a different array of pockets. This takes the guesswork out of negative space and all of the awkward-ness that follows.
3. A binder. I don't have one yet, but I might make a binder instead of purchasing one.
If you aren't among the Scrapbooking gods, then I suggest giving this a go. It's easy, fun, and probably better than playing Nancy Drew computer games and eating cheese all day (although somewhat debatable).
