Journaling Scrapbook Question….?

I have an old sketch book that I found and wanted to use it to make a
Journaling Scrapbook, you know journal my thoughts, special photos, feelings day to day, etc…
I havent been very consistent with dates and days and I am wondering is this ok to mix around the days and pages? i.e. one page will be from 11-10-08 and the next 02-04-09 and jump to 12-33-08 and then 05/31/06. its all random.
Plus now Im preggers and wanted to scrap a moments about my pregnancy, can I add to my Journal or should I create a seperate Pregger Book for my baby to look back on??

….Help!? …..

i suppose it would depend on if you have o.c.d. or your a person that likes to have everything in order. but i don’t see anything wrong with being un-consistent with your dates. I personally would start a baby book by itself though, just so its not mixed in with something random like christmas pictures, if that makes sense.

Where can I get some copyright free information on making greeting cards?

My wife makes greeting cards as a hobby and I have created a website for her to show off her creations. I would also like to add some tutorials on how to make cards, and information about the products and equipment available, techniques and styles, etc.

My wife is too busy making cards to write and I don’t know enough about it myself to write anything of merit.

Do you know of any websites, ebooks, etc, with relevant information that I can copy onto my website? Obviously, they would need to be copyright free or public domain. I wouldn’t mind spending some money for a good ebook as long as I would have the right to extract information and display it on the site.

If anyone has written anything that I can use, I’d be grateful if you could let me have it.

Why not just include links to other sites such as docrafts. Cardmaking is now a massively popular hobby and there is plenty of info around. Half a dozen monthly magazines, lots of books (check the local library), Craft & Create and QVC on Sky and the internet, evening classes, workshops, etc. etc.
Mention your local craft shop(s). Your wife’s internet suppliers.
There is no need to go to a lot of trouble reinventing the wheel.

Where can I find a company to mass produce the scrapbook papers I have designed?

I have a home business, based primarily on scrapbooking. I would like to start offering my own scrapbook supplies that I have designed myself. I have several items in mind, but need to start finding businesses to physically manufacture them. I am beginning with basic paper (cardstock), stickers, and die-cuts. Does anyone know of any businesses willing and ready to mass produce these items? I don’t know how to find what I am looking for.
Someone answered that I might just go to a print shop and have them make what I want. However, that is not what I am after. I have a PRODUCT that I need to be MANUFACTURED…MASS PRODUCED. Are there any sources out there I might try? Anyone know of any companies I might contact?

Yes, there are plenty of manufacturers who can do this for you with no problem, but what is the quantity you’re talking about? Most manufacturers have set minimums, so unless you are really talking about a large volume, it may not be that easy or cost effective.

I have experience in purchasing foreign made goods from overseas as I travel to Asia numerous times and I have seen companies who make paper products fairly cheap over there, never really investigated because I am not in that line of business.

You can email me if you would like to discuss further rather than here on Answers.

What is the best paper to print scrapbook pages on?

I am going to get some Scrapbook pages printed at Kinkos and I am not sure if a glossy cardstock would turn out better than just a matte… I am leaning toward the glossy, but I am not sure if it will be too "shiny" and look awkward. Thanks!

It really is your personal preference. The glossy really looks like ‘photo’ paper. I usually choose matte. You might also want to check out a place called www.sbtoshare.com. They are reasonable with cost- $1.75 per page and a flat $5 for shipping. They do great printing in all sizes though I’d mostly use them for 12×12 and just print smaller ones myself. The website is www.sbtoshare. com – I checked with a few online Yahoo digital scrapbook groups and this is the most recommended site that I found. It is also very easy to email them digitally and they’ll do a free sample for you. Hope that helps.

How to make personal ink hand stamps?

You know those hand stamps you get at the club? Does anyone know how to personally make them yourself with home supplies? I have the image/word on my computer and want to be able to make a good physical copy of it to stamp the ink pad and then my hand. thanks!

You can make a simple rubber stamp with a pink rubber eraser and an Xacto knife. Just carve out your image in the eraser and stamp away.
