Welcome to the "Which Came First Scrap booking or Stamping" Blog Hop.!
This one is all about what came first for us - and how we all started in this craft. So this blog hop will be all about what you started with and why! If you have arrived here from Vicky's then you are on the right course. If you just happened along by accident and want to join the fun then hop on over to Lynda's to start at the beginning!
I started with Scrap booking when I was in High School nearly 50 years ago. I was given a camera by my parents for Christmas one year and that was my very meager beginnings. Stamping came much, much, much, did I say much later like only very recently say within the past year or so.
Here is a Picture of my first scrap book ( now don't laugh it wasn't an art back in the day)
It continued on like this for a long time, The black paper and photo corners gave way to Sticky pages with a film cover ( I don't have any of those to show because I had to remove the pics I had so they would not get destroyed.
Then in the 90's ( that was a very long period of time ) My daughter introduced me to Creative Memories and Scrap booking became an adventure! All that paper ( I'm a paper hoarder big time ) and glue and stickers WOW.
To say the least I was overwhelmed with all the stuff and I take forever to complete a page I have one or two that need to be completed and many pictures to scrap.
I created this page and a companion one and it only took like 2 years to complete and then again not sure it is complete LOL
My latest paper adventure is into the world of mini albums. I have a couple started and in some phase of development ( same problem too much stuff to chose from) This particular one is going to my Aunt who will be 90 this month!
My love of paper has recently gone digital and that is loads of fun and I don't take as long to complete a page. Here is my latest project
As for stamping well that is a very recent interest, It started with sentiments and has now progressed to images and coloring. I am a real novice at it!
