What's a Scrapninny?

I’m a Scrapninny!

In or about the year 2001, I was introduced to scrapbooking at a Creative Memories party that a co-worker hosted at work. Then, one day, I wandered in to a local scrapbook store and was introduced to Quickutz – a die cutter company. As I returned there to check out the new dies, I slowly built a stash of other scrapbook company supplies and expanded to brads, buttons, ribbons, and more – oh my!

I am totally hooked on die-cuts. However, being the weakling that I am, I found the original Quickutz squeeze tool difficult to use. Another local scrapbook store suggested I try the (then new) Boss Kut. It fit the original QK dies and was far easier on me. Today, I have a Boss Kut Gazelle, their electronic cutter. I’m still in the learning curve phase, but I’m enjoying its abilities!

In 2005, I stumbled upon the popular scrapbook message boards attached to the online scrapbook shop “Two Peas in a Bucket”. I was floored! There is SO much information on this site and SO many layouts added daily to the galleries that I felt like a nincompoop by comparison. I had no clue about the full range of scrapbook products and companies that existed, the styles, or even the alterables and mini-projects. Hence, Scrapninny was born! I always thought that, when I was “good enough” or “worthy”, I could change it to ScrapSage. Well… that hasn’t happened yet and I’m not sure it ever will!

So, if you want to know what a Scrapninny is, it’s ME!

This blog will cover all things related to my scrapbook adventures! I will muse over products and trends, present some of my designs, and maybe interview others! It is just one more extension of my paper trails. Hope to see you back again!
