Not so long ago I took a little venture into the world of scrapbooking.
I don't know about you but I tend to be more critical of my final product when I'm crafting for someone else. So I really wanted a "client", rather than just to make a book for myself.
But who would be willing to test out a rookie with their precious photos and mementos?
Enter, my friend Gina, who bravely stepped up to be test case number one!
You may know Gina as The Twin Coach. If not, please allow me to introduce you. She writes a fantastic blog for mothers of multiples but (as mother to a singleton) I've often found her advice to be invaluable too. She is also the person who encouraged me to start this blog (my creative outlet), for which I am very thankful.
Gina had boxes full of photographs of her family and her beautiful children but, as a mother of twins, she found herself with no time to pull something special together for them. Something that she could pass on through generations.
We discussed details, made a deal, and I got to work!
I really enjoyed creating these books for her and she was so supportive throughout the whole experience. I confess that, initially, I had fears about showing her the results just because of rookie nerves, but she encouraged me all the way and ended up really loving the finished scrapbooks.
Gina has very kindly allowed me to share her albums with you.
...and trying to capture her children's different personalities in the page layouts was a trip!
Although I, currently, have no plans to make scrapbooking a full time business, who knows what the future may hold?
I just was happy to be able to do this for my wonderful friend, who continuously inspires me.
