Throwback Thursday

Fourteen years ago or so, I worked at a rubber stamp store named Stamp Cabana. It was one of the most fulfilling jobs I've ever had. I LOVED working there. While there, I really pushed for them to start carrying scrapbook stuff, but they didn't want to become a scrapbook store. However, there were a lot of crossover type products, like tools and paper, so they allowed me to teach scrapbook classes.  I taught a beginning class, punch art, creative lettering, memorabilia, stamping in scrapbooks and more.

I was recently looking for a photo of my daughter sharing a scrapbook with her doll, but couldn't find it. I thought to myself, "I know I put that picture in a book!" Finally, after looking in her albums two or three times, I pulled out my old "teaching" album that I created to show during my beginning scrapbook class and voila! there was the picture.  I thought I'd share this page for Throwback Thursday, as I think what the page says it's still pretty on point. :)
The previous page says "Scrapbooking". This page asks, "Is it worth it?" Of course, I'd say ABSOLUTELY!
Here's the photo that I was looking for. Hannah was literally talking to "Sunshine" about her baby photos. So cute! Of course, I also think about how life was like when I could fit all of my supplies in a three-drawer organizer from Office Depot. LOL
Hannah is showing her great grandmother her shirt. This photo means more to me today than it did then, because my grandmother passed away in 2006.
I find this part amusing now, because of the word "film"...remember the days of film and developing? I also can't help but think, "Investment? What about the investment in paper, stamps, stickers, ink, embellishments, pens, scissors, etc.?" Now there's some money!
Remember template rulers? That's how I created the border along the bottom. Kind of miss the excuse to use markers and coloring.

Thanks for traveling with me down memory lane. :) 
Don't forget about the special promotion that I am offering this month...

Until next time...

  2. What a sweet memory these photos are. I was just thinking on my ride home yesterday how I really need to pull out my first scrapbook from when I was like 16. I didn't know then that I would some day become a scrapbook consultant and teach others what I love to do. Preserving those memories is something that I cherish and I know my family loves to look through their albums. :) Thanks for sharing this awesome post.
