Scrapbooking - The I Am Project

Posted on


I've got quite a few scrapbook albums on the go and they've been a little bit neglected lately so I'm making an effort to get them back on track. These scrapbook pages are part of my I Am Project which I started to celebrate all of the little things that make me, me. 

I'm trying to record all of my traits, habits, funny little quirks and all the other stuff too. This first scrapbook page documents one of the personality traits that anyone who has ever met me knows I have. 

I am always optimistic, some people see the glass as half empty, some people see the glass as half full, personally I think the glass has room for more wine - good from both sides. I always try to find something to smile about.


This next page, I dithered over when I was creating it, I was concerned it may come across as a little self indulgent but then I remembered that I was making this album for me, to remind me of all the good stuff when I'm feeling a little less than, so I went with it anyway. 


My mum always tells me I'm awesome, and I'm not going to disagree with Mum, that sort of behaviour can get you grounded!


I do love layering on my scrapbook layouts and one of the things I really love about creating small scrapbook pages, like these pages that are 6 inches by 8 inches, is I can use up lots of little bits of patterned paper and left over embellishments to make a dent in the huge amount of scrapbook stash I have.

I'll take some photos of the other pages from this album to share with you soon.

Have you created a scrapbook album all about you? Or do you have any tips on how to use up all the patterned paper and shiny objects that us crafty types like to hoard? Let me know in the coments, I'd love to see what you've been up to.

Love Claire
