A little scrapbooking inspiration

I love the internet.  Not in a weird way, but I do love that there is so much pretty on it.  There is lovely scrapbooking inspiration everywhere and I wanted to share a few of my favourite things at the moment.

First of all, I'm loving the videos over at Two Peas.  There's a new one up most days, and my favourites are the lovely Shimelle's Glitter Girl videos (just who is Glitter Girl????) and the Memory Keeping Monday videos.  I wanted to share the most recent one of these particularly because there were so many frankly awesome page ideas.

Speaking of Shimelle, she's got a new class up over at Two Peas too.  There's always something worth having there I think :D

Next, I wanted to mention the Paperclipping Roundtable.  I often play one of these scrapbooking podcasts in the car on my way to work.  And even when I think the topic isn't for me, I always anjoy listening and find something to inspire me.  One I loved recently was about the balance between art and journalling on pages, and  so I thought I'd share a link.

And then there's photography.  Pinterest.  Enough said: for inspiration, I love it.  But there are also gems to be found on the scrapbooking front.  A few months ago, I saw this post by Amy Tan on her blog about a cute little travel printer she uses.  I ummed and ahhhed and in the end I went for it and bought one.  I'm so glad I did as I'm scrapping photos from this awesome little printer at the moment - they're adorable and polaroid/instax style and I love them to pieces.  The style of the photos inspires the pages I'm making with them and is a bit of a change from the standard pictures.

Having all these different sources of inspiration is like having my own personal scrapbooking magazine that covers every imaginable topic.  So here's to you, you crazy internet.

And finally, I booked my tickets for the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show.  Mum and I are going on the Saturday and I'm totally looking forward to it!  I fully intend to hunt down that punch and start my own confetti jars...
