  5. Great challenge! I've been scrapbooking for exactly two years now! I mean, I have started hoarding all kinds of scrapbook products already about 1 year before, but it was NSD 2013 when all the challenges and inspiration out there actually made me create my first LO! :)

  23. Oh, what a beautiful page! I have been scrapping about 14 years now. I can't believe it's been that long, but yes, it has! I was trying to remember when I started and it was shortly before my oldest daughter got married 14 years ago. I made a wedding scrapbook featuring her husband and her growing up and their friends' memories. Techniques and things have changed, but that book is irreplaceable! Now I'm scrapping her four children too!

  66. Your awesome use of patterned paper always amazes me, Paige!
    Great challenge!
    I still have my albums from college and my first job - all magnetic albums with bits of souvenirs and stuff tucked in - and that was '91! But I remember making the switch to patterned paper and "traditional" scrapbooking back when my son was a baby...so it's been at least since '99! Happy NSD!

  92. I've been scrapping for nine years. We were in the process of adopting and part of our training was to create a scrapbook about our family that they would give to the child to get to know us before we met them.

    I had such a blast making it that I've been obsessed ever since. Greatest hobby ever!

  109. I guess it depends.

  123. I just started scrapbooking about a couple of months ago! I fell in love with the idea of scrapbooking a couple of years back and consulted my friends but we all agreed that it was an expensive hobby (I was still schooling.) But now I subscribe to the belief that I don't need lots of embellishment to scrapbook and is currently having a good time scrapbooking!

    ReplyDelete
