Scrapbook Creations

I’m slowly working on the scrapbook of Happiness Box 2017. It’s not an everyday project because I don’t have time to complete it each day, though I want to start trying because I want to tidy up my room again. I have the slips and photos in three different bags. I went overboard and sometimes buying refills is expensive.

Maybe buying a stack of white 12×12 paper, then empty refills later on might be the cheaper option, but the way paper prices are going, I highly doubt it. I just complete it slowly and wait for sales. It’ll get done when it gets done, but I might just stick the slips and photos into the book. I just couldn’t bring the book everywhere in that state since I don’t want anything to fall out, but the book is too heavy to carry anyway. I think that is a plan.

Last Friday, I went to the Art Museum and worked on my scrapbook pages a little bit. I am working to place slips; I won’t actually decorate until all of the sheets are set.

Though I started subscribing to Pipsticks and May’s stickers came in. The stickers are amazing this month and really match my personality! I can’t wait to use them.

On Thursday, I worked on two pages and placed some of the Pipsticks. They look amazing, but I still want to wait until all of the slips are set before I decorate. Sometimes I change my mind, and I will admit the sheets aren’t in order by date, but by where they fit. I might move some things around, and I want the stickers to match somewhat.

I swear I’m not anal! I am just excited about this scrapbook.

  1. Hi Jessica Marie!

    It is exciting to read about and see the progress you are making as you create your scrapbook for Happiness Box 2017. Scrapbooking was a passion of mine in the years before I became a blogger. I made scrapbooks about my favorite recording artists and about my favorite films and movie stars, the same topics I now cover through blogging. It is very satisfying to lay out and arrange pictures, letters, ticket stubs, stickers and other elements on the page.

    Take your time and have fun, dear friend JM!
