More Helpful Scrapbooking Terms

Scrapper - Someone who engages in the hobby of scrapbooking.
Crop - The practice of trimming or cropping photos, either for decorative elements or to simply resize them.  The word "crop" is also used by some scrappers to refer to a scrapbook gathering, whether it's a convention, retreat, cruise, or even just a group of friends getting together at one's house to work on their scrapbooks as a group.
Embellishments - The decorative elements that really make a page come alive.  Embellishments include stickers, rub-ons, stamps, eyelets, brads, chipboard elements in various shapes, alphabet letters and ribbon. 
Journaling - Journaling refers to the writing or storytelling that's often involved in scrapbooks.
Eyelet - Eyelets are small metal circles through which the laces are threaded on a pair of shoes. They are used in a scrapbook context as decoration and as a means to "rivet" components onto a page - mainly card stock.
Nameplate - An embellishment that looks like its name implies - a round or rectangular plate with a person's name inside.
Punchies - The paper shape which results from using a paper punch tool - not the hole left by the punch. Punchies can be used on a scrapbook page for decorative effect, giving your page the look of confetti.
So learn these words and phrases and you'll better understand what's being said when you're actually working on a scrapbook.
