WEB Wednesday - Week 4

Looking for that PERFECT Title for your scrapbooking pages!! Here's a site I found while browsing the net last night!! The Perfect Title

There are many different subcategories to choose from, and LOTs of great ideas!!

Go check 'em out!!

And...like we promised...here's a little more about Sister of the Week...LOIS!!

Favorite Adhesive: Scotch quick dry adhesive is the one I rely on for mostly everything…except for the little sticky tabs I use on my pictures. I also have found Aleene’s Jewelry & Metal glue holds just about anything in the way of an embellishment.

How thick is your cardstock and paper stash? I would guess about 2 feet high if stacked but at this moment it is all over in various storage containers, drawers and files!

How/Why did you start scrapbooking? I have been playing around with my family history on the genealogy sites and have amassed a major library of information so, my intention has been to start making myself albums of the pictures in relation to that and journalize with some of the history. I haven’t actually gotten my own family album done but have been able to successfully side-track myself with everything else, like my husband’s family, grandchildren, etc. till I can do mine perfectly with ‘just the perfect paper’!

How long have you been scrapbooking? I have been scrapbooking for about two years…my daughter got me going seriously about then. I did her baby album when I first started and now I realize I will have to do it over again because it is so plain…you know how it is when you first start…you’re cheap…use lots of stickers and just want to get those pictures on the pages!

What is it about scrapbooking that you really love?
I love to create…I have always been a bit of a crafter but I don’t paint portraits, landscapes or any of that. I did become a porcelain doll maker and have a kiln and all of that but you can only make so much ‘stuff’. Scrapbooking speaks to that part of me that wants to be an artist…so I make my feeble attempts and enjoy myself doing so!

What scrapbook magazines do you read? I haven’t read any…but have looked through some technique books on occasion. I will probably try Canadian Scrapbooker soon.

Where do you get your inspiration? I get inspiration from some of the pictures I’ve taken…and sometimes just get nutty and do whatever comes into my head…there have been a few layouts done during a weekend crop when I have been up for a couple of days so you can imagine!

Thanks Lois for sharing a bit of yourself for us!!!

Sisterhood...a celebration of the he{ART}
