My Scrapbooks


I discovered the wonderful craft of Scrapbooking a few years ago and seriously started scrapbooking in 2007 when my Dad gave me a shoe-box full of old photos, documents, negatives and mementos which he got from my Grandmother. Since then my Father and My Father in Law have given us most of their photos, negatives, documents, etc. as well.

I am also  interested in Genealogy, which started with my Father, who interviewed my Grandmother in the old age home before she passed away, about her family and kept meticulous notes which I copied. My Grandmother  had an incredible memory. Our son found my Grandmother’s family tree on the internet and we have been researching ever since.

I have scanned, restored, printed and included as much information as I could of our family photos into ScrapbooksHere is a list of my most used Supplies, tools, hints, sources, techniques, tutorials, etc. for Scrapbooking. These are some of the sources I have used. Here are some of the lay-outs I have done so far. Please click on thumb-nails for more information.
