Scrapbooker/Blogger Rowena Valentine
The internet is a great place to exchange ideas and to learn. Rowena Valentine shares her skills and knowledge in Friday instructional videos which help the beginner and challenge the long time scrapbooker.
Every Monday she provides a free SVG which is Scalable Vector Graphics. These are the type of files that the SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) program uses to cut shapes with your Cricut machine.
On Wednesday's you are treated with a free layout sketch which gives you ideas on how to place titles, pictures, journaling, and embelishments on your page.
Rowena Valentine personal beliefs on crafts and genealogy are: "I really believe in scrapbooking and I have been teaching and encourage my friends, family and individuals I meet to scrapbook. Our history has been tainted with untruths and inaccuracies and it would be great to tell our true story. Everyone has a story to tell. Personal memories and notes about events from our lives and the lives of loved ones are treasures. Treasures we must preserve and document so that we can share them with our future."
Mrs. Valentine has indicated that she will share some of her personal historical scrapbook pages with the afrigeneas community and maybe even a tutorial video on historical scrapbooking .
