Back in the old days (basically, the “old days” = pre-kids), I used to scrapbook. A lot. Today I use a Memory Planner, but 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.
