    If you lay them flat & cut with a sharp craft /stanley knife, you should be able to cut through them easily without snapping, usually in one cut, so they don't have sharp ends (from years of using them for model making in uni). If they're thick, turn over & cut from both sides.

    Thank you Rugbynutter; will try that next time. I think I need to re-do the backing of the spread as well. Have done the single page for the stamps and most of the double page for Foxlease since first posting on this thread. I think I'm done with scrapbooking for the next couple of days !

    I must be mad I did one with the Rainbows - each girl did one event. Brownies we did it all in one evening (the beauty of having a laptop and a picture mate). Ive also done one for myself it has bits from rainbows, brownies, district and adult celebrations. I just have the vision page to do.

    Well I think that is a very positive start.

    If you push some stuff in haphazardly now, you will have caught me up :)

    You don't need to find it all at this stage.... just a few bits and then aim for "artistic haphazard" - it adds to the effect.

    Finished our Brownie one a few months ago. Used the guiding scrapbook plus extra pages (lots). Girls loved adding to it over the year.
    I'm still working my way through our archives making scrapbooks of the decades.

    ummmm feels guilty .. have a bag of stuff, official scrapbook and bits ... flyers, programmes, stickers, print outs, etc, etc all in a bag down the side of the sofa in the front room and I've done just 1 page on visit to HC Flower Show last year and the GGUK garden and mini gardens, etc. Wondering if I will ever do it now :( Need to do blanket sewing first with DD's camp and pack hol looming ...

    I've just added my Vision pages to mine (only 2 - I'd run out of inspiration & pictures by then!). Link in my signature

    I've just put them all into a (rather bulging) folder. Every time I find something that could be useful - it gets shoved in.

    I thankfully kept everything together as the year went on, though it is all bundled (probably ruined by now) in a couple of plasic bags. And my photos were all stored together on the comp so easy to print them. Organised in that way, just got to get on and do it now!!

    I have finished mine!!! Or at least I thought I had, now I want to find a couple of bits from when i was a brownie and also the adult membership card from the centenary year. When it is eventually done hopefully in a couple of days I will post pics. I am so proud of it, I have never done one before and sm really pleased at how it has come out.
