August 22, 2008

Stamping and Scrapbooking Go Hand in Hand

When you are a stamper, chances are you are a scrapbooker as well, because, rubber stamping and scrapbooking go hand in hand. It is very hard to have a hobby of one that you love, and never use the other one. When you scrapbook, you find that you must also stamp, and vice versa. You will find many pages and layouts in scrapbooks that use stamps and most scrapbookers love to stamp as well.

You can use your stamping and scrapbooking supplies very nice with each other. When you are creative, you can think of many places that you might use an ink pad and a stamp while you are scrapbooking, and if you do not scrap, you have nothing fun to stamp or ink. Maybe you could do cards or something, but even then, you will eventually run out of people to send you latest card to. Most people that enjoy one, will enjoy both

Stamping and scrapbooking are a lot of fun. You will find that it is so much fun to collect stamps and different colors of ink as well as it is to make sure that you have all of the latest scrapping gadgets that you love. You can use them all together and make wonderful pages and layouts that you never thought possible. You can even use other hobbies with both of these as well. There are some scrappers and stampers that will sew onto their cardstock as a way to embellish a page or two that they might be scrapbooking.
While you are stamping and scrapbooking you are going to find that there are many ways to play with your layouts to get the look you are wanting. For some people the pages will just come together. While for others they will arrange everything and then rearrange everything time and time again. One thing that you should remember when you are scrapping and stamping is to go with the flow and not everything has to be perfect. So what if the frame for the picture is a little crooked, and so what if the title across the page is not straight. This stuff will add character, and you will find that it grows on you.
