My new hobby

Well, my new hobby…SCRAPBOOKING. I always wanted to create a baby scrapbook for my little boy showing all the photos of his milestones. Inspiration came when I saw the nice and colourful page of a baby scrap book shown in a shop in The Curve. We were there to buy a scrapbook kit as a wedding gift for the bride of hubby’s cousin. Unfortunately, they didn’t have the wedding scrapbook kit so we settled for the baby scrapbook kit for them instead.

The second time we went, I saw a new baby scrapbook kit on the shelf. The kit came with a few pieces of patterned papers and stickers. Hubby knew I liked scrapbooking because whenever we visit bookshops, I always search for scrapbooking magazines instead of my usual pregnancy, motherhood and women magazines to read.

Coincidentally, the owner of the shop is also our wedding card designer. We took the opportunity to have a chat with her as well. Some of the advice she gave me:-

  • As a beginner, start off with a scrapbook kit.
  • Get ideas on the design and layout from magazines.

At the end, I bought a baby scrapbook kit, mounting squares for photos, and a trimmer. Come to think of it, it’s good to spend the time doing something useful at home when Brae is sleeping. Normally, I glue myself to the idiot box whenever I’m free…hehehe.

So, after a few days of sorting, cropping, adding effects to the photos and figuring out the layout, this is the result of my first page – newborn scrapbook:-

    The shop is called Papier located on 1st floor of The Curve. But one thing, the things there quite pricey though.

    If you are doing it, we can share the scrapbooking experience together…:P

    Eh, I saw that scrapbooking shop in the curve too but I didn’t go in, just looked outside. There are many nice and gorgeous photos outside for display. I was so tempted to go in.

    How is the pricing for those album? How pricey??

    The first few times, I didn’t dare to walk in as well even though I was so tempted to go in. Just try to walk in and have a look. They are not pushy at all.

    The scrapbook kit I bought cost RM200+.

    WOW!..That is pricey but I believe it’s worth it for safekeeping Brae’s wonderful development.

    In that case, I think digital scrapbooking is much afordable.

    allyfeel are right. Digital scrapbooking is much better, of course. Most importantly…more cost effective! I only knew about digital scrapbooking after I started to read in the magazine! *sigh*
