I’ve heard from many readers that they would love to see interviews here, but with a Simple Scrapper twist. So, my take on interviews will be one simple question to designers, shop owners and other scrapping personalities:
What are your three very best tips for simple memory keeping?
I’ve asked hybrid designer Kelleigh Ratzlaff if she would join us for the first go-round. Kelleigh’s beautiful designs make me want to pick up my scissors right now. Her templates make it look super easy to create the cutest packages to hold just about anything! Take a look at two of her newest releases:
Kelleigh’s 3 Simple Tips
- Don’t feel the pressure to create an album for each of your children. I’m scrapping MY memories, so really I’m scrapping for myself. I figure that my kids can “come visit” the albums when they grow up.
- Make mini albums!Â I LOVE creating mini albums of my kids’ birthdays and of special vacations or seasons. My boys love these little glimpses of their life that they can hold in their hands. Quickpages or Quick Albums make this SO easy and they can be cropped to any size or shape. I created a mini tin album once using 4×6 quickpages cropped to 2×3.Â It was so cute! I printed out two extra copies to give to the Grandmas for Mother’s Day!
- Get your photos OFF of your camera and delete the bad ones!Â Every day. Okay, well at least once a week. It’s even better when you can immediately tag the photos that you want to scrap. When you have a couple of minutes of scrapping time, you don’t have to hunt around for photos to use. You’re ready to go!
