Back in the old days (basically, the “old days” refers to my life before kids, which seems like forever ago), I used to scrapbook. A lot. And while I’ve mostly moved to digital photo books and Project Life (I am SO excited about this), I have maintained my obsession and compulsive buying habits when it comes to scrapbook paper. I don’t even want to tell you how many pieces of scrapbook paper I have around my house, because it would be embarrassing.
So…what’s one to do with it all? I’ve compiled a list of uses for scrapbook paper that I think any paper hoarder will appreciate. If you’re like me, you’ll see this list and get a bunch of ideas and feel the need to buy even MORE scrapbook paper. You have my blessing.
