I have a crafty confession to make. I have been in a rut. A HUGE scrapbooking rut. I have really enjoyed browsing online and in magazines for inspiration, but I have felt sort of overwhelmed with the new trends and styles out there – that just aren’t me. Can you relate? I want to learn how to incorporate some of the latest trends, without losing my personal style and story in the process. It is a constant struggle for me.
I was super excited when Ella Publishing did something a little different and released a new eBook that incorporates ideas from not one, but 14 of the biggest names in the scrapbooking industry. That is HUGE! This new book, “Scrap Chic”
teaches us ways to use the latest trends in ways that still allow us to maintain our style and not lose ourselves or our stories. But don’t take my word for it. Here is a description of what you’ll find in this book:
