I recently went to a Creative Memories party. I ended up buying a couple of albums and some other things because I plan to start scrapbooking!
I am not that creative and I am new to scrapbooking so please tell me where you get your ideas.

Several places. Creative Memories has idea books that I like to flip through when I need a kickstart to cropping. I also attend a monthly SB crop at my CM consultant's house and can get ideas from other people working there. And sometimes, I just scrapbook to get pages done and don't worry so much about style. You can always go back and add stuff. That's what I like about CM style because I, too, am no creative genious.

I've been scrapbooking for a little over a year and half. I like to go to scrapbook.com (I think that's what it's called). You can view various layouts for ideas.
Good luck. I know you'll love doing it.

Like zachytacky, I use CM idea books. My consultant has them available for use at crop night. I make things up, too, and use items that were part of the moment. e.g. I used the mylar ribbon the said "It's a girl!" that my neighbor hung up on our garage door as background for dd's coming home picture. For birthdays, I'll save pieces of the tablecloth that aren't wrecked and use some of the characters. And for some, I don't use anything but a plain border around a couple of photos or some of the precut triangles and rectangles from CM. It just depends on my mood.

I've never been to a crop, or bought a magazine or book, I prefer to spend my very limited budget on supplies! I learned everything online. twopeasinabucket, scrapjazz...there's loads of tips, techniques and fabulous galleries to inspire you online.

You can go to creativememories.com for ideas. There's a blue menu bar on the right side. Scroll down to "Idea Center." :)

I got a couple of good books on Scrapbooking at Costco. I also got a lot of 2nd hand scrapbooking magazines on ebay. I've never looked too much at the websites because I prefer to have the page right next to me while I work. I'm not creative, either, but it makes it easier to copy ideas and then just embellish with stickers. :)

simple scrapbooking, paperkuts ... magazines. It's silly though because I rarely go back and use a pattern I liked. The pages are all dog-eared though!

Get books and magazines out of the library and 'scraplift'. When you see something you want to do, go to the store and buy the identical EVERYTHING, and put your page together.

pm me when you've become a paper junkie like me!!! DIY has a show called 'scrapbooking' and there are some really cool easy ideas there. i'm not very crafty at all and have managed to come up with some very cool little pockets to hold scraps.
for me it's easiest to find a paper i like and use it as a theme (e.g. chocolate chips for our hershey trip). stickers are great too. plus i'll see if i can find my bookmark w/tons of great fonts. they had 'harry potter' font that i used for the kids halloween page last year.
