Super Simple Halloween Challenge

Super Simple Halloween Challenge

Hello, and Happy Monday! Today I get to share one of the super SIMPLE scrapbook challenges with you, that I have issued to my adorable sister, Darci in our upcoming workshop, Super Simple Scrapbook Challenges, where we masquerade as heroic caped crusaders fighting for simplicity in memory keeping. One of the pages I completed for this challenge is actually a Halloween page, so I thought it might be a good one to share as we finish our countdown to major candy and dozens of new photographs this weekend! One of the things that sometimes stumps me in my quest for scrapbook productivity is my HUGE stash of patterned paper. I LOVE patterned paper.

Inspired by Fashion

Just like fashion, there are no rules to scrapbooking! Sure, there are design principles and ever-changing trends, but the scrapbook police are not about to hunt you down. The next time you feel you are in a rut or at a loss for inspiration, think back on all the times that this hobby made you feel alive and electric.

Gettin’ Inspired

Gettin’ Inspired

I am a huge fan of mini-books. I’ve made literally hundreds! So imagine my delight when Amy Tan’s project is a mini-book based on things that inspire! From favorite products and food to music and what we read it’s the perfect little “me right now” album. And “little” is right, because it holds the cutest ever 2x2 photos!

Peek Inside the Artists' Studios!

Peek Inside the Artists' Studios!

Don't you love seeing sneak peeks of art projects before they're finished? It kind of feels like walking through a newly framed house, seeing a celebrity without makeup on, watching What Not to Wear, looking at a baby and imagining what she'll look like when she grows up. You just see so much raw possibility. There's a fun final reveal awaiting you sometime soon, but for the moment, you can imagine all sorts of outcomes.

Scrapbook You

It’s a new twist on an old idea: tell the story of you, from A to Z, in an encyclopedic format, and do it using the Project Life system.

Twitter and Scrapbooking

Twitter and Scrapbooking

Twitter has become a go-to source for news and current events, so it made sense that I should compile some memorable things I heard about there throughout the year on a layout.

Journaling is an important part of my scrapbooking process. I love to write on my pages. I love it both for the text and texture it brings to my layouts.

Photo Quiz Contest with Angie Lucas

Photo Quiz Contest with Angie Lucas

Hi friends! I'm excited to introduce you to the power of quizzes and quiz questions this week. I truly believe that when you ask the right questions, great stories and memories can emerge. And by "the right questions," I don't mean these: What kind of dog are you? What celebrity would you like to have lunch with? What is your favorite color? There's nothing necessarily wrong with these questions, but they don't say very much about YOU.
