Last weekend I taught a 30 minute class to 30 seniors with some help from my mother. (aka SuperMom!) There were two basic ideas I tried to get across: You are your family’s historian, and scrapbooking is flexible. You can make it as simple or as ornate as you like.
The case in point: A very simple layout I used as a demo.
As you can see, it’s very simple. I’ll probably jazz it up later. It needs more pop. I brought in another layout I did not finish so I could show how a picture and papers could be rearranged to suit different ideas. For example:
As you can see these are little variations that give slightly different impressions to the page. Just a thought. Now go play with some paper. Or candlesticks. Or your garden tools. Rearrange until “happy.”
