    One of the best ways to get hold of your 12 x 12 albums is to host a Creative Memories class / get together at your home. If you get a certain amount of sales then you can purchase an album at a very reduced rate (I think it's 5 pounds). Certainly worth thinking about. You get a great evening too - and learn some stuff about scrapbooking. CM have been around for years, but still have the best albums (voted best album for the past few years by a bunch of US scrapping magazines). Great to hear that you're so into it.

    I love scrapbooking but i have to agree with other people on this thread who have mentioned the cost! its very expensive! For over the past year i have been making a 'This is your life' scrapbook for my boyfriend which i add to whenever anything special happens (such as his graduation etc) I also keep a matching scrapbook and photo album from different holidays. I would post some pictures but i'm not sure how i will read the thread mentioned earlier about it.

  • wow mrs bones your pages are fab.
    my lovely sil sent me a winnie the pooh scrapbook and some lovely papers and stuff from the us where she lives but i haven't started yet . it's for my grandaughter . Not quite sure where to start cos i don't want to ruin it but i'll watch this thread and i'm sure i'll figure it eventually. Won't be anywhere near as good as yours though

    MrsBones - absolutely fabulous pages. I think my favourite is the christening one. I love the embellishment at the bottom. I thnk its going to take me a while to get to your standard.
    Craftgranny, I kept putting off making my first scrapbook. I thought I would wreck the papers. I eventually plucked up the courage and it wasn't as hard as I thought. I started off with a mini book though, and I got it in a kit, so I didn't have to find things that matched everything I needed was there.
