At the Rainton Meadows Papercraft show recently I realised that a lot of people would like to start scrapbooking but don't know where to start. I have known this for a while but I think it was brought home to me at the show, especially when I heard people commenting on the layouts I had on show and saying things like 'Oh they are lovely but I couldn't do that' and 'I wouldn't know where to start as I have so many photographs'. I think this is probably typical of a lot of people and therefore they don't get started with scrapbooking at all!
I thought I would do a little ad-hoc survey amongst the bloggers who may be reading this today. How many people want to try scrapbooking and haven't actually got around to doing so? Why? How many people would like to start scrapbooking but don't know where to start? Are there crafters out there who would like to join a scrapbook club or crop but don't know where to start looking?
Another question I would like to ask is - if you are already a scrapbooker - how did you start? What type of craft clubs/crops are there in your area? Do you attend any craft clubs/crops? If you do, what do you actually do when you are there?
It would be interesting to get some feedback on this question and if you leave a comment on this post I will enter your name into the blog candy draw (rules apply). Thank you.
