Our SBCH Spotlight – Design Team – Laura C!
I started scrapping in the fall of 2005 after my niece was born. I was collecting all of these adorable pictures and I needed something to do with them. I started reading scrapbooking magazines and idea books and my supply stash began to grow. Then I met a group of women who meet at a local store monthly to crop, and scrapping moved from a hobby to a (healthy) obsession. My love of doing minibooks hearkens back to my college days when I took classes in book arts.
My favorite technique would have to be inking. I love how it makes items stand out and gives a more “finished” look. Also, I’ve discovered how handy and attractive sanding can be as a technique, especially when covering chipboard.
I love scrapbooking for the art and craft of creating, for the companionship of the friends I’ve met along the way (both online and in person) but most of all for the recording of my family’s stories. I like knowing that, when I’m gone, a part of me will live on through my scrapbooks.
