Scrapbooking Then & Now

Today’s Projects is all about my love affair with papercraft.  It started after the birth of my son and it carries on to this day. It has been there through school projects, work and family fun  but always  a part of my life. I will say its a great fun and creative hobby for all ages and its been my pleasure to share with friends and family. Some of my early work ( My Gran birthday )   Wow ! How the industry has changes- it use to be cut outs, stickers and fancy cut scissors. Now its much more – with paint,inks ,cutting machines the supplies are endless- But the basic supplies are simple – paper, glue and scissors.   A few I’am working on.   Do you have a papercrafter in your family?   Great gift idea to buy –   Gift cards to favorite store. Let them make a wish list and buy something off of it. Buy them a class to attend or subscription to monthly club. If you are new to the craft – There’s lots of great ideas,blogs and You tube sites to follow to learn all about the craft.  Lisa
