Hello there. I'm Grace. I'm new to paper scrapbooking (I've dabbled a little in digital SBing) and I've always wanted to scrapbook. I finally got all my kit and stash together and started last weekend. I've almost completed 5 pages and it has been a lot of fun. It's so addictive though. I just had to go out and add to my stash today and I'm getting a cricut delivered next week. It's like an obsession, LOL. I think my pages are still quite amateurish compared to what I've seen on this forum. Let me know what you think and any input would be most appreciated. TIA.

(shown in order of completion)
This is my first page.

This was done from a cheap kit and I don't like it. I did do the name blocks by hand though.

I thought the sheep was so cute so extended the theme throughout. It's actually a printout of some wallpaper samples.

Cutting out the butterfly stencil was so tedious. Does anyone have better ways of cutting details?

This is my latest page. I still need to add a title but I'm waiting for my cricut first. It's meant to say Priceless Expressions.

Those look great!! They really do. I don't think it's as important to make every page a work of art as it is to record your memories in a special way. That's how I think of scrapbooking, anyway. If I tried to make every page a work of art I would never get any done!
