Scrapbook Soup

Scrapbook Soup

We're mixing it up on a new series called Scrapbook Soup. The premiere series is hosted by Julie McGuffee and Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. Each show features a dollop of guest experts, a generous sprinkling of mixed media, and a dash of digital scrapbooking, continuing where a past favorite Scrapbook Memories left off. It is filled with inspiration and information about the latest products and techniques for creating memorable paper crafting projects to preserve milestone events, simple everyday activities, and family traditions.
