Ep. 1 – Getting Started in Scrapbooking for $25 or less

This is the very first episode of Crafty Ratty. In it, I talk about how to get started in scrapbooking for only $25.

With my garage converted to a craft studio, stuffed to the rafters with craft supplies of every kind, even I find it funny that I’m talking budget and crafts in the same podcast. However, I am far from normal and there are many reasons why you might want to do what I say, not what I do.

For one thing, maybe you (or your spouse) aren’t convinced that you will enjoy scrapbooking and so you don’t want to blow your budget on a bunch of stuff you may never use. The most common reason, of course, is that you just don’t have that much budget to blow, even if you are enthusiastic and ready to dive in. Finally, you may just want to do a single book for a special occasion: wedding, graduation, new puppy, whatever. You may not want to invest in a lot of expensive supplies for a one-time project. I get that.

There is a huge world of crafting supplies out there, and it can be tough to focus on the basics. That’s what this episode will try to do for you. Even if you are ready to dive in like a crazed Crafty Ratty, this will still give you a good starting point. You can go crazy later.
