Since Lily Pebbles posted her scrapbook video back at the beginning of January, like many others I had the urge to start one myself, I’ve kept similar type things in the past but really wanted to do this. Over the past month I have looked on the Hobby Craft site at the ‘Project Life’ things and it looked all very exciting but also quite expensive too. I took a trip to Hobby Craft to look at the products. I decided to do something a little different and more budget friendly. I felt the project life binders were too big and bulky… so I decided to pick up a more traditional scrap book and it was on sale for £5. I thought I could decorate the cover myself; although i’m still unsure how. The book comes with pages inside, so I did’t have to buy inserts (again cutting costs down). One of my favourite things (and a must have I think for scrapbooking) is this La de dah (cutest brand name ever) Pen and Glue duo pen. It is so handy and was only £2.50. I also picked up the corner puncher, which I seen in Lily’s video which I knew I would have to buy… I was impressed that it was only £6 ( I don’t know why I thought it would be more) but I love the way it rounds the corners of the photos. I picked up a big pack of lettered stickers which I intend to use for each month names; these were the most expensive at £7 but there is lots. More from La De Dah; I bought Washi Tape (although one role won’t peel correctly) which cost £3.00 and cute little sticky tags to add captions again they were £2.50.
Thanks for reading
