Completion of a Traditional Scrapbook, Part 7: Adhering

16 Jan

I’m away for the weekend, having a great time scrapbooking and knitting with friends. Yesterday I took the next step toward a completed album: I used my Tape Runner and adhered all the laid-out photos, papers, and embellishments to those 60 pages I prepared a couple of days before. I had more photos to go in this album, and needed more pages, so I did a very quick Power Layouts session (Part 6) on a couple of beds in one of the retreat bedrooms, and then adhered those pages, to finish up. (Not sure I’d recommend this for more than a few pages, as you have to bend over a lot more!)

Now my album is almost done. All 70 page sides are adhered, and I put the pages in my coverset. The next step will be journaling, but I’m waiting to join my family back home for that — they remember some things better than I do!

    Scrapbooking can be a great hobby. And it is also a great way to preserve memories and organize them in a way that is fun to look back through later. There are many scrapbook ideas and ways to do it.

    First you need to decide if you want a physical scrapbook or a digital scrapbook. Then decide how you want to lay it out

    I was so confused about what to buy, but this makes it underastandble.
