A wise scrapbooker once gave me advise on the 3 secrets to SCRAPBOOKING.... so I thought I would share them with you as they have helped me through the years.
1) Organize your Photos ... you can do this by person, event, theme. Things will flow much easier if you have them organized.
2) Plan Your Layouts ... if you know what your layout plan is it is much easier to shop for needed items and you don't return home with a multitude of items that won't work with your plans or photos.
3) Claim a Work Space & Time ... this is key to keeping the scrapbooking going!
