Scrapbooking for weaklings

Does the fact that I spent my weekend scrapbooking and listening to West Side Story make me cool? Well it certainly should. No amount of Sudafed could chase the flu away fast enough for me to spend Saturday with the mountaineering class learning knots in the snow, so while JK was gone I spent some time with my somewhat neglected hobby of scrapbooking.

Since I was sick I had to make it as easy as possible, so I put these layouts together in Photoshop, printed the photos on photo paper and the journaling and titles on cardstock, and then just glued stuff down. I added the paper that was closest to me (from the same slab of paper as this one) and that just happened to look kind of like the Snuggle Sax in the photos.

For this one I just recycled a template I had made for one of my layouts in Computer Tricks for Scrapbooking 3 – this time making it 8×8. Since my scrapbooking stuff is in an inexcusable state of chaos, the easiest thing to do was just use some leftover paper from the Wellington layout…


…and this was the easiest one – once I decided there was no way I was going to choose just one or two photos from this trip. Seriously, too many photos I loved from this trip. So I enlarged my favorite, copied this setup from last year, and filled both sides of the divided page protector with 4×6 prints.

    Dear Ingunn,
    I have a German Scrapbook forum, it is the “ScrapBookTreff”. We are planning a Jump Start in January. Now we´re looking for 31 layouts to lift. I would like to show your layout “Besseggen” for inspiration. It is so beautiful! I love it! Do you mind if I show your layout ? Otherwise I only give the link to our members.
    Thank you for your answer
