Scrapbooking School Projects

Our newest scrapbook technique comes straight from an email we received recently:

I am going through some of my son's school art projects. I'd like to scrap them, but some of them are way too big for a layout. Others are too bulky. I'm not sure where to even begin...help please!

Rosemary H.

Rosemary's question is one that many Scrapping Mamas have - how to tackle the unwieldy school and art projects in our scrapbooks. Whether it's art projects that are too big or bulky for a layout or just the sheer number of school papers and projects that you have stored in your basement, we can help! Scrapbook School Projects

Check our our fall scrapbook technique article for some creative tips and tricks for dealing with this common scrapbooking problem.

Final Money-Saving Tips

Don't toss those Halloween tidbits! Dig through your child's treat basket for the goody bags, stickers, tattoos, and packaging that they aren't interested in and re-purpose it for the scrapbook layout you're planning to preserve this year's Halloween memories! Cards, wrapping paper, even gift bags can be cut to make fabulous frames, borders, embellishments and backgrounds.

As always, don't forget the bargain shopping basics . These few tips can save you lots of money next time you go scrapbook shopping!

Happy Scrapping!
