I know a lot of people wonder where to start from, when they scrapbook. Well....here is a video with my answer. I always start with the picture and then paper and embellishments.
A beginner scrapbooker has to realize that the creative process means trying different things. As you will see on my video I always cut my elements, prepare them and place them temporary on the page without adhesive and only when I am happy with the look I adhere everything on the page.
In this video I used Basic Grey Urban Prairie collection pack.
