Hey Scrapbook Blog Readers: Sometimes scrapbooking can be therapeutic not only for the readers of your scrapbooks but also for you! This was the case for me today as I made this pocket scrapbook page: This is a vacation story which ought to be a happy one right? But if you get real and really remember vacations as they are - there are times during vacations that are grouchy right? It is understandable - the schedule is different, everything is new, and maybe lunch comes just a little too late and there's been a little too little sleep - someone is bound to get grouchy. I used these pages to explore that time and process a current time that has been a little grouchy and to gain inspiration from happiness quotes from Pinterest. I think this page not only reminds the reader the importance of gratitude and looking on the bright side; but for me it was helpful and mood lifting to spend time thinking through a hard time and putting a positive spin on it.

Anyone else wish they could magically transport to CHA 2014 in California? Well for scrapbookers like me, the next best thing is following #CHA2014 on Instagram and Pinterest. I found an Instagram photo of a CHA show layout at the Chic Tags booth - the Instagram photo was taken by Patricia Roebuck but I'm not sure who made the original layout. I scraplift and like to give credit - if you know who made the original layout (Called Favorite Place) please leave a comment. Meantime, here's a closer look at my layout: Can you see the Silhouette Cameo cut embellishments? Yep I did the all of the gears, geotags, arrows and viewmaster thingee on the Silhouette. Lots of the other stuff on this layout came from my scrapbook yardsale haul today. Of course I made a scrapbook video while making this layout - it is uploading to You Tube - I'm not sure I know how to scrapbook anymore without the video camera on! Supplies: Amy Tangerine, Echo Park, Basic Grey, and Jillibean Soup patterned papers; Maya Road mist; Silhouette Cameo cut embellishments; October Afternoon stickers; American Crafts and Jenni Bowlin letter stickers; machine stitching.

Do your scrapbook layouts look something like this when you photograph them? This is a layout that my daughter did for me. I showed how I photograph and edit scrapbook layouts for online sharing on this You Tube Video: How to Photograph Scrapbook Layouts for Online Sharing - You Tube Video (start it around the 32 minute mark). After editing in Picasa - a free program from Google - I got this image for online sharing of my scrapbook layouts. Layout by Allison Scott - Age 10. (layout photographed in exceptionally poor light which accounts for the glare on the photo - but it was the cropping question I was addressing with this video.) Continue reading

Teddi & Gela - thank you & she is totally freaking cute! We are loving her so much. She is feeling more at home here everyday. I'm having Charlie build her a ramp for the dock so she can get down into the bay / low tide bay beach & hopefully she'll be a paddleboarding / kayaking dog. Fingers crossed that she'll love the water. :) Katie.

Gela! I think this might be one of my favorite comments ever! Thank you! It is so helpful to hear your observations of what I am saying - Like maybe I do get some JOY out of bargain hunting! Thank You! P.S. To any kit clubs out there - if you want me to do some product demo I'd be happy to kill the kit for you!

I am all signed up for Stacy Julian's Inspired Scrapbooking class at Big Picture Classes and the first month is all about seasons. Seasons literally like winter, spring, summer and fall; and seasons in a more general way - like seasons of life and seasons of love. Tomorrow is my 15th wedding anniversary which has me thinking about seasons of love and that 2014 should be a renewal year for my husband and I; we are committing to taking more date nights (by more I mean more than zero which has been the trend for the past couple of years); and by maybe even taking a romantic getaway to San Francisco or someplace amazing. Of course I made a scrapbook process video while making this layout - it is uploading now on my Katie Scott's You Tube Channel. *** If you wish to support this blog, please click through to the Amazon affiliate links - there is no extra cost to you, but this blog will get about .04% of whatever you buy (not just the linked products) once you are there via these links. Thank you for your support! Continue reading

How many scrapbook layouts did you make in 2013? I had to guesstimate the number of scrapbook layouts I made in 2013 - I think it was well over 200 but I had something like 179 uploaded to the Two Peas Gallery. I thought it might be fun to count the number of layouts I make in 2014 by numbering them so this will be my first post in what I hope to be an ongoing scrapbooking list of layouts for 2014. I'm not making any guesses about how many I'll do this year. Do you keep goals for the number of layouts you create in a year? *** Layout #1: Making a List: This layout was inspired by the Two Peas video from Scrap Your Stash by Paige Evans - she used Christmas trees instead of circles down the center of her page. I was inspired by using the Silhouette to cut the negative images from a background paper and then to put the embellishments underneath. I did make a You Tube scrapbook process video while making this page - but at time of this post it is still uploading. Here's a link to my You Tube Channel if you are looking for the video.
