    Re: Scrapbooking

    RealityDiva - nice work I wish I would have started scrapping when I was younger.

    Nlmcp: A cricut is an electronic cutting system. I swore up and down I wouldn't get one, but once Michael's came down so low, I had to. They are coming out with another model (of course!), but I don't need the new functions - the smaller one is perfect for me. Their site says $299, but you can always get it cheaper than that. The new one is $500! ack!

    So far I have the alphalicious font cartridge and the George/Basic Shapes cartridge that came with it. I'd like to get Base Camp next. I bought my Alphalicious from ebay for $50 shipped.

    Re: Scrapbooking

    A friend of mine is retiring from her job. I used to work there and the girl who now has my old job is putting together a scrap book for the occasion. I've got some photos that I'm giving to the effort, but the scrap booker has asked that we also do a little note to the retiree. I don't have any "official" scrap book accoutrements and I can barely keep my photos in one place, let alone put them in a book, so I really have no clue about scrap booking. But I do want to do a heart-felt note because, truth be told, if it weren't for my friend who is retiring, I would have quit that job after about 3 days. (I grew to love it, but you know how it is when you start a job.) I have some pretty stationery and can cut it down to size, but I really have no idea what "size" that ought to be. Like 3X5 notecard size? Bigger? Smaller? Any advice would be appreciated!

    Just do your note on your stationary. You can always ask the person doing the scrapbook what size the album is. I wouldn't do a notecard in 3x5, but your own pretty stationary. That is way more personal.
    What a nice gift. I bet she will treasure it.

    Thanks, myrosiedog! I've called the girl doing the book, but she's hard to get a hold of. I think I'll just do a handwritten note on a smaller piece of stationery and if it's too big, she probably can cut it down with those fancy scissors scrap bookers have. (They have those, right? Pinking shears or whatever? I'm seriously not a crafty person. )

    They have dozens of scissors that make different cuts. Scallop, wave, pinking, etc., etc., etc.,

    I always say the handwritten personal touch in scrapbooks is the way to go.
    Handwritten anything in those situations are just more personal and I think add more meaning to the gift.
