SparkPeople Scrapbook Slackers Team Messageboard Scrapbookers that love to buy the stuff but never use it! We say we will . . . but never do. We need HELP!! SparkPeople Scrapbook Slackers Team Messageboard Hello Fellow Scrapbookers I've been scrapbooking off and on for several years; right now, however, since I plan to sell my house and move, almost all of my supplies are packed. I do want to do a few military pages for an album in progress but have trouble finding the supplies I need for backgrounds. Does anyone know a good company to order small amounts of paper products, stickers, etc. from online? I also do some cards. I'm anxious to have a place to lay out my in progress stuff soon. In the meantime, I'm not exactl... Mon, 27 Oct 2014 19:59:30 EST New here Hi! <BR> <BR> Love the name as I too am a scrapbook slacker! I have a room full of scrapbooking materials but very seldom do it even thought I love it! I've been a member of SparkPeople for two years. Recently I re-committed to reach my goals. Decided I needed support of the SparkPeople community which I had neglected to become a vocal member of before. Hoping I can contribute to scrapbook slacking as well as helping other members to reach their goals. Thanks for having me and happy sl... Fri, 4 Jul 2014 13:38:29 EST New to team I was so glad to see that they had a scrapbook site . For me it will be the best of two worlds. <BR> Need motivation on both Wed, 8 May 2013 21:21:31 EST I had to Join! Love the title of this team! I really enjoy scrapbooking but for some reason I can't seem to sit down to do any pages. I have joined a local scrapbooking group and have gone to some scrap meetings where I get all enthused but once I get home - nothing! I can't even tell you how much stuff I have. I actually have finished one album - about 12 years ago. However, my daughter is 23 and I haven't finiished her baby album yet! Too funny. Help, I need motivation. Thu, 25 Apr 2013 17:05:46 EST Hi I'm new to this Spark team Good morning everyone. i am so excited about finding this team. I have been a member of Sparkpeople for about 5 years now. Looking for a new team this morning I found this one and emediately joined. I have not been working for a year now so I have had lots of time to do what ever. I have 1000 ish family pictures I want to scrapbook but can never quit figure out a layout that I like. I have gotten a lot of ideas from youtube and Pinterest so I am slow;y getting started. I don't want to ... Wed, 23 Jan 2013 13:32:22 EST Hi everyone My name is Carrie and I am new to SP. I love scrapbooking and all kinds of papercrafting. I am truelly addicted to my cricut and it is not often that I don't have some type of project going at all times. I am a SAHM to three great kiddos and I have an amazing boyfriend who actually enjoys my crafting and encourages me to create as often as I can. I hope to get to know other crafters who are also working to get healthier both mind and body. Sun, 20 Jan 2013 11:02:51 EST Hello Hello, my name is Amy and I have been on SP for a year. I am looking to lose about 40 lbs before my 40th birthday in September. I love to scrapbook, but it seems I never have the time to do it. My hubby makes fun of me because I have so much stuff and he swears I'm never going to use it. I am a college student and have two children. I have finished both of their first year albums (oh, btw they are 12 and 9!!). One of these days I will get back to it. Sun, 13 Jan 2013 20:51:35 EST Scrapbook hi, i am wife and mother of three grown young people. i was sidelined by health conditions. while home i was trying to find what type of hobbies i found enjoyable. after many months i discovered scrapbooking , it served a duel purpose. one it gave me something to do with years of memorabilia and photos over the years,by putting them in some type of order. and two it gave me something productive to do and enjoy. i decided to tell a story surrounding my life story from these memorabilia.... Tue, 2 Oct 2012 15:16:50 EST how'd you know? Well, that's me. Gotta have all the equipment before I start anything. I have a "scrap" room FULL. I have done a few scrapbooks but always as a gift. I've started my oldest son's book, a couple pages (he will be 23 yrs old this year). But they say it's never too late, right? Mon, 3 Oct 2011 13:13:10 EST Just started collecting Sparkpeople memorabilia Since my idea of scrapbooking involves putting mostly paper items in acid free page protectors and storing them in binders, I figure this would be an appropriate team for me to join. I was first place in Sparkpoints on two of my teams last month, something that may not happen again since reading The Spark gave me an extra 1000 points, so I printed out my rankings. I also walked my first 5K last week and printed up the trophy message email. I tried to print pictures of the level trophies, b... Sat, 1 Oct 2011 14:36:52 EST What Is Working For You?

Sun, 19 Jun 2011 22:11:09 EST What have you scrapped lately? Since we are all self noted scrapbook slackers I wanted to see who's been scrapping and about what. <BR> <BR> Lately I've been trying to get myself organized to do a Grandfather's album for my future children (both mine and my husband's Dad's are gone). The last thing I probably scrapped was a couple pages of my niece's scrapbook. <BR> <BR> What about you?

So if you eat a lot of apples in your diet A could stand for that and you can tell why you chose that word for that letter. B could stand for Bodacious babes, that we a...

I have to admit, at the moment my scrapbook supplies look like something off that hoarders show. Not only have I not started any of the projects I want to get done, I don't even have my things organized at the moment! Let's motivate one another do get at least one project done. My first one is going to be getting my supplies organized. What's your first project gonna be??? <em>306</em> Sun, 6 Feb 2011 10:38:13 EST Let's help each other clean scrap rooms! How about posting what you have cleaned/organized in your scraprooms and how you did it?! I need motivation, and maybe we can help each other with this. I have a good start on organizing my paper--I have put them in those vertical boxes with inserts and labeled them by brand or type. I still have stacks to go through, but I am getting close! <em>30</em> Sun, 23 Jan 2011 15:14:46 EST Introduce yourself to the team Hi I am new to Sparks and love the name of your team. I am a scrapbooker who has drawers, box, selves, etc. crammed with paper, stamps, stickers, albums, etc. but everytime I do a page I go and buy new. Also I have items I love so I refuse to use them. :-) glad I'm not alone. Sat, 22 Jan 2011 11:06:20 EST Back Again Hi, my name is Teri, I tried SparkPeople a year or so ago... Life got overwhelming and I dropped out. I miss the feeling that I can write on here what I am thinking about my weight and not be judged. <BR> I am looking forward to meeting new people, and hopefully getting myself into a routine so I can lose some weight, and feel better. Mon, 25 Oct 2010 03:00:34 EST Getting orginazied I have finaly starteed to get my file cabnit in order. It is very rainy here today so I thought that would be a wonderful time to do it. I discovering I can't find some of my scrapbooking stuff and I can never find the right craft for my Sunday School Class or my Awana Class. Well guess what I've found a bunch of it today. I want to start doing some paper pieceing for my scrapbook pages so maybe by getting things in order I can start doing what I really love to do. Hope everyone has a bl... Sat, 24 Apr 2010 17:06:09 EST Slacking We are really slacking on the discussion here on this team. Does anyone have any idea what the problem is? <em>39</em> Wed, 21 Apr 2010 12:38:26 EST Cardio Workout Got up early this morning and did my workout before I left for work. Yea Me! <em>224</em> It's another beautiful day. Tue, 20 Apr 2010 09:58:34 EST Any slackers out there Well this is Monday and it's a beautiful day. A little on the chilly side but the sun is shining. Still didn't get to do any scrapping this weekend. Guess I'll have to take a day off work and print my pictures off the camera and scrap a couple pages. Mon, 19 Apr 2010 10:03:24 EST Scrapping Has anyone done any scraping lately Sun, 18 Apr 2010 15:09:32 EST Wonderful day Good morning to everyone. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sat. I have taken some new pictures so I think I'm gonna take some time this weekend to do some scraping. I'm semi-retired but I've not had much time to scrap and I love doing it. Sat, 17 Apr 2010 08:32:20 EST Team discussions Doesn't seem like there's an awful lot of discussion on this teeam sometimes. That's kind of a let me down. And when there is it seems like it's just one or two. What do you think our problem is. Any comments or suggestions.? Fri, 16 Apr 2010 09:22:05 EST New to this team Hi, <BR> My name is Sandy. I love to scrapbook but haven't had much time to do it lately. I have been working on losing weight for a while now. My progress is slow but I love this site and it has helped me so much. I will keep on keeping on. I know that together we can all do this. <em>224</em> Wed, 7 Apr 2010 09:17:23 EST Anyone Want a "Get-Back-to Scrapping" Buddy? For the last few months, I have done a major cleaning and reorganization of my craft room. (And, sadly, it is still not 100% done, but it is world's better than it was.) So now I want to actually start scrapping again. <BR> <BR> But, I feel like I need a buddy to help me find my scrapping spark - someone who would like to do some mutual cheering and coaching and, when needed, butt-kicking. I know from the past that it's a lot easier to get excited about scrapping when you have a like-mind... Thu, 1 Apr 2010 14:18:48 EST I'M BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!! Hi all my teamies!

I started a book right after I got married 2 yrs ago and I am sorry to say its only half done, but its not the only thing thats just waiting to be finished. I think I will fit in very well here and hope to make some friends and loose some weight and maybe even finish a project ( or two) lol. Mon, 8 Mar 2010 08:54:55 EST New to the Group Hello fellow scrapbook slackers! <BR> I can't believe my luck in finding this group. I have two ROOMS full of scrapbooking/cardmaking supplies. And I, too, have promised myself to make scrapbooks for my already grown children :-) Not to mention my grandchildren! <BR> My resolution this year was to at least organize my gazillion supplies. Wish me luck! <BR> On a positive note, when I do actually scrapbook, I don't eat! I don't want to get anything yucky on my precious papers :-) Mon, 1 Mar 2010 20:37:40 EST Hi, All! I'm new to "Spark". But, this team sounds like to buy those "need to HAVE" supplies, but not exactly USING them. LOL!! Maybe if I aimed at one project at a time, instead of a little bit of everything. <BR> Well, hoping to start loosing pounds, and gaining scrap pages!! <BR> <em>244</em> Sun, 28 Feb 2010 14:26:36 EST I need some ideas here? Hello and good morning I recently found some of my mom's pictures that mine dad took years ago and I have no idea on a layout and hope you can help me out here?

Sun, 14 Feb 2010 23:34:36 EST Cricut Hello, <BR> I just got a Cricut (for Christmas from Hubby!) and I heard that the cutting board that comes with it is not very good and that I should buy a new one right off. Do you know anything about it? Why is it not good or has yours worked just fine? Sun, 7 Feb 2010 09:08:45 EST CROP I am so excited! I am going to an all day crop on Saturday from 9-4!!

Wed, 3 Feb 2010 13:12:05 EST This must be the team for me! I'm new to SP, browsing the teams searching for a few I can relate to... and I found the scrapbook slackers! Having just spend a Saturday afternoon in a labor of love with my many scrapbook supplies creating four 12x12 pages for my Nov 2009 cruise -- and knowing that it will probably be months (maybe years) before I tackle the many more pages I have to go... THIS team caught my eye. <BR> <BR> May we all inspire each other in scrapping AND weight loss! Mon, 25 Jan 2010 20:47:59 EST Hi everybody! Hi all, I love to buy scrapbook things and I love the idea of putting them together, and then I don't get around to it.

I'm hoping to get some inspiration from all of you. I need to lose weight, but I just can't seem to stick to anything. And I don't feel like I belong anywhere. But when I saw "Scrapbook Slackers" I thought - "I'm home!" I sure hope I can get to know some of you, and that there's hope for me out there somewhere! Thu, 30 Jul 2009 21:13:19 EST New here also! Hey there! I am so glad to find a group of people who are just like me. I buy all the scrapbooking stuff all the time but I think I have only done like maybe 5 pages in the last 2 years. I'm so new at it that I get overwhelmed and then put everything away, saying that I will do it tomorrow. I have a sticker fetish, that's for sure! <em>20</em> Tue, 28 Jul 2009 14:42:46 EST Newbie here Hello fellow scrapper slackers! I am one of those people that have every intention of scrapping family albums, trips, my wedding, and our new baby girl. I have 2 books that are completely empty, and 1 book that has 1 1/2 pages, haha. I love to shop the sales and think about the pages I can make but for some reason those ideas never make it on a page. I suck at cropping pictures too. I did complete a 9 page mini book for my mother-in-law this may as a present - very proud of myself at this. Tue, 21 Jul 2009 22:19:29 EST Hi! Newbie from SC I just joined this team. I've been with SP for less than a month but I love it! There are so many interesting teams and so many supportive people here. I love to scrapbook but can't seem to find the time. My best scrapbooking is done when I'm on vacation at my Dad's. My husband says I have ACMoore at home. I'm a scrapbook junkie that doesn't know when to stop buying. Anyone have any good tips for finding time to scrap? <em>252</em> <em>203</em> <em>213</em> Mon, 13 Jul 2009 14:17:01 EST Hello Okay, I am the mom to six kids and have a new grandbaby. I have years of pictures in piles or stuck in binders (organized LOL) and a closet full of scrapbooking stuff... I even have a cricket that my husband bought me for christmas... I have used it to do posters for kids projects, but very little scrapbooking.

I'm actually in the mood to get something done. Please don't hold it against me, I still want to be a part of this team! <em>247</em> Thu, 16 Apr 2009 09:49:10 EST OMG, is this the team for me! It's not a question, but a statement. :) When I read the description I thought, you mean there are others that just buy the stuff and "say" I'll do it someday. I'm not alone! LOL I have a big crate of stuff I keep adding to. I have slowed down lately, telling myself I can't buy anything else until I at least "start" a page. I don't have little ones at home, only clutter, and of course it's always easier to eat than to deal with either. I have been getting better on the eating part, si... Sat, 11 Apr 2009 23:22:17 EST I made another purchase!!! I just bid and won the Cricut Jukebox! I'm so excited! I can't wait to get it! Maybe I'll actually start scrapping and stop buying....probably not! Thu, 9 Apr 2009 16:25:59 EST This made me laugh! Hi I came across this team and it made me laugh because this is sooooo me! I just keep buying and buying and not doing anything. I think I just love to buy and like to scrapbook. Glad to meet all of you and can't wait to join in your discussions!

I have 8 completed books (binders really) and one that is still in the process. I love scrapbooking I just dont get to do it very often. With a 3 yr old running around it makes me nervous to drag all of my scrapbooking stuff out. <BR> <BR> I have so many pages that I would like t... Thu, 19 Mar 2009 21:18:11 EST Favorite Products or Techniques? Let's talk scrapbooks! Maybe someone will even be motivated to scrap (hopefully ME). <BR> <BR> What do you like to use? What techniques thrill you? <BR> <BR> Let's see. I love using cutter quilts on my pages (several examples on my sparkpage, especially in the gallery). It's unique and adds a touch of nostalgia. I also enjoy using a work of art as inspiration - mostly abstract or modern art. I'm also a sucker for good old-fashioned yarn or ribbons - they never go out of style and the ...

I have an entire scrapbook room, but haven't done a page in oh so long. I HAVE cut way back on buying - usually only a few items a year now. It helps that I finally let my scrapping magazine subscriptions expire, and that I rarely shop anywhere now to reduce spending. <BR> <BR> I did use some of my layouts for my pictures on my sparkpage, so y'all may like stopping by and seeing them.

I regularly visit Hobby Lobby and JoAnns because I can't pass up a good bargain. My spare bedroom looks like a tornado went through it with paper scraps, punches, pens, rubber stamps and pads, etc. all over. I started making a family scrapbook to pass on to my kids, but my genealogy research is not complete, thus neither is my scrapbook. So, I have kind of switched to making birthday cards and that is fun. Que...

HOLIDAY EATING TIPS <BR> <BR> 1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls. <BR> <BR> 2. Drink as much eggnog as you can? and quickly. It's rare. You can't find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an eggnogoholic or something. I... Fri, 19 Dec 2008 15:04:44 EST Let's have some fun!!
