|Posted: 5/2/2013 9:35:13 PM|Wanted to redo a page years later? I have this page that I did for DS3 a while back and I like it a lot:
But now that that song is out by Macklemore "Thrift Shop".."I wear your Grandad's clothes..I look incredible!"
LOL- that plays through my head every time I look at this page now. I probably would never change the LO but I was just wondering if anyone else ever does this! Or if you ever changed a page once you had it finished were you glad that you did it or did you regret it?

I have changed pages from when i first started scrapbooking and never regretted it but i have to say i dont know that i would change a thing on that layout it is precious. Maybe just do a second one with the same pics you could do it in a 12x 12 frame or even do a 7 gypsy type printer tray.

No. I like seeing how far I've come. I also think that in 10 years, I might feel the same way about something I did today. I am nowhere near caught up and never will be. I don't have time to scrap current things, I sure don't have time to redo every LO that I may not be totally happy with.

Why don't you just add the lyrics to your original page? I try to avoid re-doing things, myself, but I'm always good with adding a bit more if I feel inspired.

Why not rescrap the photos? I've scrapped the same photos many times, I see nothing wrong with that at all. I think they all can have a fabulous place in your scrapbook. When, something more fitting comes along ( song, embellishments, or paper) I jump at the opportunity to create the perfect page. Have fun and don't forget to share that new page!

I also like to see my different styles through the years, but would not hesitate to scrap the same pictures again, or, if I wanted to add something, maybe add a 6x12 pageprotector and just add half a page or so.
But the page is very precious as it is, so lovely!
|Posted: 5/3/2013 6:29:13 AM|I have redone pages and I'm glad I have.
I have a few in my gallery that show the before & after.

It's been 5 years since I redid these layouts and I still love them.
For the OP, I would do a second page with reprints of the photos. Maybe use an enlargement of your favorite and use the lyrics and some journaling about how you liked to put him in "grandpa clothes" as a baby?
Because your original layout is super cute the way it is.

I have a couple I would like to redo but have so many unscrapped pictures that I haven't found the time. Very cute pics.
What are you looking at?
|Posted: 5/3/2013 8:59:22 AM|I like Cricutgirlg's idea, then it's best of both worlds! I've never rescrapped a page (just because I like to see the evolution of my style), but I have scrapped the same photos on more than one layout before. I hope you post your new layout if you decide to go that route, I'd love to see it! (That song will be in my head all day now).

I simply cannot bring myself to go back and change pages that are more than a year old. I am afraid that would result in a page-changing frenzy, and I have way too many albums for that, LOL!
What I have done though when I am not in a chronological scrapping mood (I usually am in a chronological scrapping mood) is reprint pictures, in some cases by scanning the portions of the original layout that include the pix (since I don't have a 12 x 12 scanner), then using the reprints to create a whole new layout. In my case, I've got another book for the redos. But one time, I did a redo with a duplicate pic. I liked the redo so much better, I pulled the original layout out of its album, and put in the second one.

I have redone quite a few. They were from my first scrapbooks that were in 8x8 spiral albums and I had no idea what I was doing. So to preserve them better (with page protectors!!) I started a 12x12 album and re did a large amount of them. I may never finish them but I LOVED what I redid. I also redid a lot of them as 8.5x11 and put them in a plain 3 ring binder in page protectors. It was super cheap and easier to convert to that size.

I've redone pages from just a few months ago! Sometimes, I'll finish a page just to "finish" it without really liking the end result. Those are the ones I just have to redo once I have more inspiration and ideas.
Now that I'm here, I have nothing clever to say!

I have only redone a couple. One I was not happy with from the start, and after a few months I still did not like it! So I re did the LO and I am much happier with it.
I also have scrapped several photos more than once. If I have another story to tell, I will scrap it again. Or pick a special photo from an event to tell a different story, even if I had included on another LO.
You could scrap your favorite photo from the first LO and enlarge it and scrap it with the song you like, I think that would be adorable!
