Scrapbooking Art

Scrapbooking is something I've never spent much time doing. I don't think I have the patience for it. Now, with so many online scrapbooking services, I find it difficult to switch back to the old school style, manual way of storing photos. However, after visiting my friend Yuri Nishiyama I must say that I'm tempted to learn the art of good old fashion scrapbooking.

Yuri has an arsenal of scrapbooking paper, albums and even a fire engine red diecutting machine. I was so impressed with the heft of this gadget and even more so at the ease by which it cut perfect shapes out of ordinary card stock.

And did I mention that her scrapbooking studio is filled with wonderful dies of all shapes and sizes? You see, Yuri is not only a hobbyist but while in Japan she wrote several books on the subject.

You may see more of Yuri's work on her website, The website is written in Japanese but please visit just to see some of her work.
