Raise your hand if you’re absolutely, completely, entirely caught up with scrapping every print and digital picture in your possession…. Hmmm, no hands? Well, you’re in good company! We’re all fairly drowning in pictures now that technology allows us to take just about all the pics we want (or at least as many as we can fit on an SD card). Designer Angie Briggs has twin sons so she knows what it means to be knee-deep in pics. But her perspective gives us a new perspective: “You have to keep in mind that every one of those pictures represents one moment in time. That moment will never come again – but thankfully, if you’ve captured the moment, then you’ve got it forever.” She created the January ScrapSimple Club: Capturing Moments as a versatile tool to work with any type of layout to help you chronicle your favorite images in scrapbooks, photobooks, cards, and more!
Fun Fact: We love hearing what happens behind-the-scenes as our designers create their clubs: “To be totally honest, I struggle every time I sit down to do a ScrapSimple club,” Angie admitted. “I can never decide what direction I want to go with the club! However, this time I quickly knew I wanted to focus on photos – but the trick was to figure out just what to focus on. After spending some time researching on photography sites and Pinterest, I found a few trends I wanted to work on, such as placing word art on photos, adding an overlay to photos, and finishing those off with a mask or frame. I hope that this club will spark your interest in taking your photos to the next level! I enjoyed creating this club so much, and I hope you love using it!”

If you are looking for an original way to display your selected photos, arranging them in unique scrapbook albums can be the solution. Scrapping is a very exciting hobby, while offering a wonderful way to organise your treasured memories for posterity. It’s an exciting and addictive pastime that allows you to utilise your imagination and add your personal touches to your scrapbook pages.
Ready made scrapbook kits can be really ideal, especially if you are making a themed scrapbooking design, such as for a wedding, a work function or the birth of a baby. Pre-packaged packages come in a wide range of designs, and contain a selection of pre-designed stuff like cardstock, stencils, casings or stickers.
One good thing about by using a kit to produce your scrapbooking layouts is that it saves you the time of getting to choose your supplies alone, so that it is quicker and simpler to design your pages. If you’ve got a digital camera, then there are some good digital scrapbooking software packages that permit you to make use of your computer to try out different designs. You may play around with all types of things, from templates to font styles.
Presently there are lots of other free scrapbook themes online, and a number of artistic ways of putting embellishments to your scrapbooking pages. In addition to using stickers, there are all kinds of paper piecing patterns; die cuts and other equipment that will help add color and style to your page. As well as using photos and other visible images, many scrappers want to use words to boost the meaning of the photographs.
Journaling is a great way to record your memories and feelings related to the events in the photos. You could desire to add scrapbooking quotes or poems, where appropriate, to help bring the stories to life. This can work nicely in both chronological or heritage scrapbooks, as well as in other types of albums.
