These pages are INCREDIBLE! Just spent the last 30 mins looking at all the details. You have certainly given me some inspiration to get working again. 2,000 swap pieces and 3,000 pictures from 4 different trips to put to paper and not one page done. Ugh! Where do I even start?

I love these pages... (and yes a Cameo will work with SCAL)

I am so intimidated by the swap board, but maybe I just may have to stick my toe in..... Can someone hold my hand?

Smile amazing

I have just made my first scrapbook and it's NOTHING like yours, very plain.

I really must look more into this, any hints and tips would be greatly received. I have no machines, so rely on my friend to help cut out the frames.

What's SWAPS?

Swaps are when we make things and trade out so we each get one thing back from everyone.

So say 5 people are in a group.

I make 5 tags
you make 5 titles
Michelle makes 5 photo mats
Rachal makes 5 mini file folders
Nancy makes 5 borders

They all get mailed to the hostess, she swaps them out and when we get our stuff back we each receive:
One tag
One title
One photo mat
one file folder
one border


here is a link the swap forum

What's SWAPS?
I just saw this, sorry! Trust me- this hobby is a learning process. My first albums looked nothing like this either. I learned by attending crops with friends/community events, looking on-line, and asking questions like you. I have also invested a lot of money over the years as well!

My biggest suggestions would be to buy what you want for specific pages and try not to just be a collector of scrapbook supplies like many people are (myself included sometimes). I have so many pieces of paper and stickers that I just had to have at the moment and they still sit unused! If you are able to save or ask for Christmas a machine, you would probably find it so helpful! My pages really got better after I purchased mine.

Another word of advice if you are just getting started. You can find great deals on ebay and craigslist of people unloading their supplies they have gone digital or bought too much. Just a suggestion on a way to get a lot of great stuff for a fraction of the cost. As long as you have a tape runner, good pair of scissors, and a paper trimmer you will be fine.
