“You can learn new things at any time in your life if you’re willing to be a beginner.”
– Barbara Sher

We golf. My husband, myself, my daughters, even my someday son-in-law likes to golf. I often hear friends that don’t golf comment that they’re too self-conscience to learn the sport, too afraid to look foolish on the course. But with golf, or anything else, how will you ever know how much fun it can be unless you’re willing to be a beginner?

Lately I’ve been seeing posts around the scrapping community from beginners wondering where to start. And it makes me so happy to know that scrapbooking can be for anyone! Whether you’re diving into digi, or trying your hand at paper-scrapping, there’s a whole lot of friendly scrappers to help you along your beginner’s journey. And maybe these lovely pages, from a few seasoned scrappers, will inspire you to start something new!

Gypsy Soul by Ellasspace

For loads of inspiration look no further than this lady’s galleries. I love how she chose to use black and white photos with the bright accents. Her shadowing on the hanging elements in perfect. And the way she clustered all those flowers behind the template butterfly is stunning!


Miles of Smiles by agoymerac

What a fun way to use word art! So creative aligned with all those happy photos. I love how she used the frames to make the pics flow together. Pretty stamping and the wood paper background frames the page nicely!


Summer 2020 by MandaT

I love list layouts! (Actually – I just really like lists!) And this list is extra fun because it’s all about summer. (I really like summer too.) Her title is so clever and I love how the text bits are placed on little banner shapes – pinned down with all those cute heart brads. Her summery cluster is so fun!


Time to Renew by TruusF

I’m not sure if this was created for a challenge, but her description of how she chose her words is so interesting. Go check it out. I love that big bold scribble, it really draws the eye along the page. Pretty stamping and brushwork. Lovely and creative page!


Unforgettable by CharlotteM

Oh what a pretty picture! And just the simplest of embellishments to highlight it. I love how she added the messy paint to make her cluster stand out. The little hearts anchoring the title is a nice touch. Beautiful!


Bon Voyage by Joey*

What a cool page! That airplane word-art is “just plane awesome”! (See what I did there?) I love that little cloud floating across the photo anchoring the tiny word bit. The bird scatter is so fun and the location arrows are perfection!


Those are my picks for today. While you’re spreading goodness in the galleries this week, search out the newbies. Give them a friendly welcome and a little extra encouragement!
