we've come to visit our honorary grandkids, and their mom said "oh good, you can teach me to scrapbook!" She showed me what she had done for the kids books already. They were both charming and creative. She used an Erik Carle (kid author illustrator) paper pad, sticker letters, and Jolie's embellishments, stuck down with glue stick & double face scotch tape plus the "stuff"they get from school. Her entire stash fits in a rubbermade plastic drawer unit. Remember those days? She said what else do I need? NOTHING! (well, maybe some UN-du and some anti-stick scissors) No Cricut. No cameo. No big shot. no Washi tape. no twine. no stamps. No ink. No brads. no eyelets. no ribbon. No Basic Grey. And yet, she gets pages done When did scrapping become so much about "stuff"? Did you have more fun with less? Does our "stuff" get in the way of our creativity? Do our technical capabilities cause us to strive to stretch in different directions than we would if we didn't have them? So many people on other boards say they don't have time to scrap. Does playing with the tools and 'stuff' eat too much of the scrappy time?
