A Different Source for Scrapbooking Ideas
SPAM - A Treasure of Scrapbooking Ideas for Scrapbookers
by Al Speer
22% of all scrapbooking searches, completed on the internet, in October, were for scrapbooking ideas. New and fresh scrapbooking ideas are at the top of every scrapbookers mind. Whether newbie's or veterans, many scrapbookers have a hard time coming up with innovative ideas. Scrapbooking addicts find themselves spending hours at online forums and buying idea books and magazines, hunting down the latest scrapbooking ideas and projects that they can do themselves.
This isn't some crazy fad, either. Some estimates put the number of women who scrapbook in 1 out of every 10 families. SPAM, although controversial, is one great, secret stash of scrapbooking ideas for scrapbookers. It's ironic that something everyone hates, can offer such exciting ideas for scrapbookers to use. Not only can they get ideas for their layouts, from SPAM, but they can find inspiration for gift projects and albums as well.
So, in their ever widening hunt for innovative ideas and concepts, SPAM may be a great untapped resource for scrapbookers. Here's a warning, though, you don't want to top open your SPAM emails without a good quality virus scanner.
Here are a few more reasons your favorite scrapbooker might be interested in SPAM inspired scrapbooking ideas...
- Quick and Easy Color Themes and Ideas - There are so many different color options out there. This is a great way to gather new ideas on color, and using colors together.
- FREE Ideas They Definitely Won't Find Anywhere Else - Find various idea inspirations, from small layout elements, to whole page designs, and from simple catalog-style sketch samples, to complex, layered ideas.
- Lots of Different Page Element Shapes and Design Inspirations - Discover mountains of creative shapes, themes, and motion ideas that the advertising designers use.
- Different Photo Sizes and Photo Layout Options - Although somewhat advanced, enlarging and cropping your photos is a fantastic way to spice up your designs. Ads give tons of ideas for resizing photos, laying them out in new ways, and cropping them to complement your layouts.
This short list gives scrapbookers a brief glimpse into a NEW source for inspirational scrapbooking ideas.
