Let’s Talk Kits

What kind of kits you might ask?  Why, scrapbook collection kits, of course!  I’m addicted & I mean ADDICTED to scrapbook collection kits.  I mean, what’s not to love?  Everything I could possibly need is beautifully packaged together & ready for designing the perfect layout.  The package looks almost too pretty to open.  But I do.  Collection kits make my life so much easier.  Collection kits make scrapbooking so much easier.  Patterned papers, letter stickers, cardstock stickers, chipboard, & more take the guesswork out of scrapbooking for people like me.  By people like me, I mean those of us who have a difficult time figuring out what colors complement each other and which patterns to put together.  For me, collection kits are to scrapbooking what a knight in shining armor is to a princess, my savior.  How about you?

Let's Talk Scrapbooking

Those who know me know how much I LOVE to scrapbook.  Those who don’t (yet) know me will learn how much I LOVE to scrapbook!  It’s most certainly my #1 hobby.  Actually, it’s more than a hobby; scrapbooking is a very big part of my life.  I have other hobbies too, playing Mah Jongg, reading, & shopping (oh, how I love to shop!).  But scrapbooking is my creative outlet.  Scrapbooking allows me to create beautiful memorabilia to share with the most important people in my life.

Now don’t get me wrong.  I’m not a designer & I admit, I’m a huge fan of “scraplifting” (my favorite buzzword these days)!  But somehow, those “scraplifted” layouts still turn out to be mine.  Adding my own finishing touches here and there, the layout that started out as a scraplift, turns into a creation of my very own. And that makes me feel good.  In fact, it makes me feel great.

Although I usually answer “since 2003” when asked how long I’ve been scrapbooking, if I really want to get technical about it, I’ve probably been scrapbooking since high school, or perhaps even earlier.  Remember those old photo albums with the sticky glue strips and clear plastic pages?  I would arrange my pictures and include quotes, cut-outs from magazines and newspapers, postcards, ticket stubs, stickers, or anything else I came across to go along with those pictures.  My high school and college years were spent taking photos of friends and family and making my first scrapbooks. 

With this blog, I hope to spread the enjoyment of scrapbooking.  I want everyone to love it as much as I do and I hope you all come along for the ride!

Scrappers vs. Scrapperz

Would you believe that I can’t use ScrapperZ Delight for my dba because the word “ScrapperZ” is not in the dictionary?  Therefore, technically, we will be known as “Scrappers Delight.”  However, for email, blogging, & website purposes, we are ScrapperZ Delight.
