Power Scrapbooking?


What is Power Scrapbooking?

As our kids get older and our lives get busier, we have less and less time to scrapbook while the photos and memories just keep piling up. I encountered this myself over the last couple of years. Not really easy to scrap when you're spending all day Saturday on the soccer field with the kidlets! I have been sketching and brainstorming on a technique I call “Power Scrapbooking”.  There are several problems that Power Scrapbooking solves – AND it helps you create beautiful pages in minutes!

As a scrapbooker, these problems are stopping blocks to creating – Power Scrapbooking addresses these problems:

  • Not enough time to “get creative”
  • You make too big of a mess trying to figure out your layout
  • Too many scraps to deal with when you're done
  • A huge mess is left after creating just one page

Power Scrapbooking is a way to create pages with full size 12×12 paper with virutally ZERO waste or leftovers. Its easiest to show this with a demonstration. Enter our new Power Scrapbooking Kits!

Each Power Scrapbooking Kit comes with the following to help you get the most out of your paper, have little to NO scraps leftover to clean up, and get your scrapping done quick:

  • Cutting template for the paper
  • Detailed Instructions on how to assemble each page
  • Color Photos
  • All the goodies you need (except basic tools like adhesive and scissors) to create the layouts pictured.

Better yet, the template and instructions can be applied to any paper collection or paper from your stash once you've finished with the kit contents. Use the templates over and over to get even more life out of them. Here's a sample of a couple of the pages that can be created with this Power Scrapbooking Kit:

Layers of trims make this page special – change them out for border stickers for a different feel. I hope you've enjoyed this little journey into what Power Scrapbooking is. The templates in the kits are exclusive to the kits – once they're gone, they're gone! In January, I will start bringing some templates to the Layout-A-Week blog so be sure to subscribe to that blog for updates ;)
