Traditional Scrapbooking with Close To My Heart's beautiful themed scrapbooking and papercrafting

Traditional Scrapbooking
If you prefer the hands on approach, like cutting papers and gluing embellishments to their page. Then you are into Traditional Scrapbooking. Traditional scrapbooking allows you to reach out and touch your embellishments. You can run your fingers across a ribbon and feel the embossing on letters.
