Hi,

I really want to try scrapbooking- so many of my family and friends do it and it looks SO nice but...I'm not very crafty. At all. I still have trouble even cutting a straight line when wrapping presents. Embarassed Am I crazy for even considering trying? Are there lots of pre-made things that I could just paste onto a page? Or some templates? What all would I even need to get started?

Thanks!

Wow, I can SO relate to this post!! Both my SIL's and my MIL are fantastic scrapbookers and I feel left out. But alas, I am the least artsy-craftsy person I know Undecided. You've inspired me to look around and see if there are any beginner kits that would be easy to try. I'll let you know what I find!

I also would like to try scrapbooking.  I have a few digital scrap kits to work with but have not done anything with them.  Or regular scrapping too.  I just don't know about myself.  LOL

I've wanted to start scrapbooking forever! My problem is that I have sooo many pictures. I never take just one or two pictures of something, I take 10, or 20, or 100. So I find myself not being able to choose just one or two pictures for a scrapbook page, so I just never start. My daughter took ballet for years, and I would love to make her a scrapbook, but I probably have thousands of ballet pictures. How do you choose??
