I brought a few scrap supplies with me, mostly work related. I have all of the new MME releases. I especially LOVE Cut and Paste!
I also have the August Gossamer Blue kits. Everything else is on a slow boat to Italy. And I mean s l o w.
So of COURSE I'm itching to create. DYING to create is more like it.
I'm thinking I need to document this first year in Italy. Well, all of it…but especially this first year. The transition, the exploration, the frustration. All of it.
Not sure how I want to do so. I'm thinking a PL format but I don't know if I want to stick with the small SC Handbook format or if I want to go back to 12×12. When we moved I realized I have TOO MANY 12×12 albums. And I think that's a big reason I've stopped scrapbooking that way for the most part.
We move so much and it's a lot to move.
On the other hand, I think that Italy might require a 12×12 album.
So here are my questions.
1. What are your favorite albums? Inserts? It's all so dang overwhelming for me. And I can't do complicated right now. Easy is key.
2. Do any of you have an APO address overseas and what stores have worked best for this? Where do you like to shop for your scrapbooking goodies?
3. Do any of y'all have a Selphy? Which one? I think I am not going to see my printer for a long time and I think I need a Selphy. It sounds so handy.
4. I have been "out of" the scrapbooking world for most of last year. Not sure what's out there, not in the loop. Is there anything I should check out that would work well for me this next year?
I do know I'm super excited about using the Gossamer Blue Life Pages kit.
Whew. Okay, that's it. I'd love to hear what you guys think and any thoughts and input you might have.
p.s. I PASSED MY ITALIAN DRIVER'S TEST TODAY. WHEEEE!!
