My name is Autumn Craig and I have been an avid scrapbooker for over twelve years. In 2008 I published my first book called Entitled Scrapbooking – A Resource for Page Titles currently available at Amazon.com, BN.com and select scrapbooking specialty stores.
I spent a year searching for title idea books since it was something I struggled with. At crops I would jot down ISBN numbers of small pamphlet style books only to find they were out of print and if not unavailable were exceedingly pricy. One 25 page spiral bound book I found was over $150 at an out of print book seller. You know what they say, if you want something done right then do it yourself. Well that’s what I did! I wrote my own book. Ok – initially it was meant as a gift for my scrapbooking friends but so many women wanted my categorized listings of page title ideas I found a publisher and published it. I’d love to see me book in every crop bag in the world. It is a lofty goal but it is better to think big – right?
When I started this website it was to promote my book, but creating a top scrapbooking ideas website has become my passion. I believe together we can create something great!
My friends are a bit jealous since I am up to date in my scrapbooking but in my defense I didn’t start with a huge backlog. Don’t worry though because if you did I will be showing you how to map out a plan to get it done without you spending every waking moment working on it. While that may be fun, lets face it, it just isn’t realistic. Believe it or not you can scrapbook our ideas in 15 minute increments and I will show you how.
Am I organized? You bet. It is just in my nature but I can help you get organized even if that is not your strong suit. Don’t worry, you won’t be color coding your supplies but there are some simple techniques on how to prepare to scrapbook that will save you time and make you more productive. Now isn’t that worth the few minutes it will take?
To me my scrapbooking time is sacred. After all, I only get to scrapbook one day a month. I get to scrapbook with my two best friends at a local store; we always go for the marathon crop of 12 hours. Even that never seems long enough!
I am now on the Design team for the Memory Lane Scrapbooking store in Marlboro, CT. I am enjoying working on my monthly challenges.
I hold an Bachelors Degree in Business an Masters in Management and currently work as a financial analyst. Growing up I always wanted to go into design but I went to college on scholarship and I must admit my degree has served me well. My scrapbooking fulfills my design passions (I also knit and sew). Originally from Brewster, MA I now reside in Colchester, CT with my husband, daughter, dog and three cats.
