Mostly A’s – JOURNALIST. You have a lot to say, and it usually ends up on your scrapbook pages. You can always find the words to express your feelings, recount details of events, relay funny stories and share a unique perspective of your life. Those who come after you will truly feel like they know you, and have seen into your heart. Continue to share your story, even enlisting the help of those in your family and other loved ones. If you would like to break out of the box, advance your skills beyond journaling and develop some basic principles of design or improve your photography skills. This will enable you to make a well-rounded page of not only your feelings, but your creative passions as well.

Mostly B’s – DESIGNER. You are a visual person with a good eye for design that is usually apparent in all you do. You tend to be most original, even though your keen eye may allow you to receive inspiration from other sources. You aren’t afraid to use color and patterns, for they are the keys that open your true style. However, be careful not to get lost in the design. Your scrapbook can be a harmony of your many talents, but your photographs should remain the focus. Decorate and crop only to enhance the photos, never detract from them. Take a journaling or a photography class to advance these skills and mesh them with your other natural talents.

Mostly C’s – PHOTOGRAPHER. The pictures are the reason you begin scrapbooking, and they will always remain the focus. You rarely crop your photos since they are well-taken shots to begin with. You capture true life on film, and are able to expose real humanity within your images. Since it has been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words” your journaling may be suffering. Seek to gain inspiration to add the words that will give the necessary information needed for posterity’s sake. Develop your design style so that your magnificent photos will have the backdrop they deserve.

Mostly D’s – GADGET FREAK. You are a collector of sorts. Could it be all this shopping is an avoidance to having to sit down and actually make pages? Don’t be afraid of the task, since once you get started, it becomes a joy. Allow all your shopping expeditions to benefit you. Drag those tools out, play with them for practice and find out how you can really use them to create a unique style. Cut, punch, corrugate, shape and glue’til your heat’s content, but don’t forget to add the words. Use your tools to make creative titles and great frames to focus on your photos. If you haven’t made many pages, set goals to finish some before you can buy the latest gadget.
