Scrapbooking Outside The Box

Many "traditional" scrapbookers seem to be getting discouraged by how far behind they feel with their scrapbooks. I must admit that I sometimes feel the same way, as I am trying to keep up with books for all 3 of my children. So, during my last weekend of scrapbooking with the girls, I decided to break away from my traditional scrapbooks and try making an altered project. I made a growth chart to give as a baby gift for a friend. I have to say that actually COMPLETING a project...start to finish...has rejuvenated my scrapbooking spirit!! If your feeling the same way, I encourage you to get out your scrapbooking supplies and find a different use for them!! I purchased my growth chart from a LSS, but I found it online here.

Maple Memories has a new workstation!! It's perfect for quilter's to use as a cutting station or as an extra place for scrapbooker's to dry their stickled pages! It's also taller than our other worktables, so you can STAND while you work on your new creation. ENJOY!
