My Scrapbook Rant...
OK so what do you notice about these scrapbook layouts?
AS I have been looking through the most recent 3 scrapbook magazines Scrapbooks etc. trying to get inspiration for my cruise and Pennsylvania pages I have noticed a real annoying (to me of course) trend. One photo, or one large and a few small photos lot's of "embellishments" a big one word title and lots of blank space.
When you are doing a special photo or maybe a place to showcase a personality trait etc., OK it's good but most of us just don't scrapbook that way, or at least that is my experience. I want to find examples to help ME scrap the wonderful travel photos and unless I go back to 2004 or so to even find examples to use.
The other thing is that although they aren't, all the pages could be made by the same person.
I guess what I am saying I don't mind trendy styles and supplies but how about a little variety in style? I pay good money for these magazines and just get frustrated when I don't have much inspiration for my own pages.
So what do you think? Am I just a whiner or anyone else feel this way?
