There are TONS of fantastic scrapbook products on the market, with more coming out every day.

    Great tips! It is so easy to collect and not use. I think it’s really important to buy things that will work together in a number of different pages. Thanks, Lain!

    Thanks, Kelli! Speaking of things working together, can you leave a comment with a link to your Patterned Paper Palooza?

    Lain, thank you for reminding me why I love the to scrap… I don’t ever want to forget my life in the perfectly ordinary moments of my children… I have a difficult time telling my story. I get so caught up with printing and layout and colors and design that I tend to rush through my favorite part. It never seems to come together quite like I wanted to and I spent so much time on it that I’m frustrated to do the next one. Thank you for your time. Lost Steam Sarah

    We ALL get caught up in that! I have to remind myself, too. :)
