I'd like to say this page was inspired by Get It Scrapped's Story Play - but it is just a timeline of my summer road trip with my daughter. I'll take some GIS inspiration for tomorrow's layout. This layout was a good way for me to remember all the details and dates of our trip. I haven't gotten all of the photos printed yet, so this will be a good "table of contents" type layout for our road trip album. I also made some square punches from the travel brochures and just tacked them to the back of this layout for potential use on a future page about this trip: Of course I made a scrapbook process video: (coming soon) Continue reading

Can you guess the metaphoric phrase I used on this layout? It was inspired by Noell Hyman's scrapbook layout in Get It Scrapped's ebook: Story Play. I paired a traditional 12x12 layout with a divided page protector so I could get more pictures included. I even put more pictures on the front side of that divided page protector: Here's a closer view of the 12x12 layout: And of course I made a scrapbook process video while I made the page: Continue reading

I am a right brained thinker. I see the big picture. I believe that anything is possible if I create a solution by approaching the problem in a new way - or better yet by doing it my own way. I’m not excited about specific dates or details. I don’t... Continue reading

This page was inspired by Story Play at Get It Scrapped - although it is very different than the layouts that you will see there - many of the Story Play layouts incorporate poetry prompt challenges - and poetry is a bit challenging for me - so I took the poetry inspiration and translated that to using the title pages from some of the books on my bedside table. Of course I made a scrapbook process video: Continue reading

The subject of this page was a post by Debbie Hodge over in the Get It Scrapped's Forums. I used the hashtag #mynewnormal for a bunch of photos that I took on 9/3/14 and uploaded to Instagram; then I got onto my computer later that day and printed a screenshot on my home printer. Of course I made a scrapbook process video: Continue reading

One of my favorite layouts in this month's Get It Scrapped's STORY PLAY included a pie chart - which made me think of the pie charts of ethnicity we've been getting back from Ancestry.com; so I thought making a scrapbook page would be a fun way to document getting my Ancestry DNA results. I'm 69% British and 20% Irish; I also included all the ethnicities that made up the other 11% - those are the pie shapes made with Copic Markers.

There were several travel related layouts in GET IT SCRAPPED's Story Play and I loved the one by Debbie Hodge that included numbered photos with a key to each numbered item. I though this would be a great way to save some of the travel memorabilia I picked up during what I'm calling our Epic Summer Road Trip of 2014: Going through and saving some of the items helped me part (throw away) a lot of the brochures and bits that I collected. I often go through this type of a process when I'm traveling - I collect lots, bring it home, scrapbook some of it so I can let the rest of it go.

Get It Scrapped's Story Play includes scrapbook pages created with the help of the map motif. I adore the map motif and included it in my Story Play Make Your Own Kit #1 - and I used this page as an opportunity to use up some letter sticker sheets. My daughter is 10 and we've seen almost half of the United States - our goal is to see all 50 by the time she is 18.

This page is finally a page in which I stay pretty true to scraplifting Carrie Arick's page that appears in Get It Scrapped's Story Play - I've been trying to scraplift this one for days but I have kept getting off track - finally I'm on track to a scraplift of the layout design, the color combination, and the six word title! The page wasn't hard to scraplift, but I had a hard time staying true to the layout design and using my homemade kit - so I'm happy to mark this one off my "to scraplift" list. The page is all about how my 2nd great grandparents decided to move west from Massachusetts to Kansas where my great grandmother was born; but then decided to move back to Massachusetts. Their decision had a big impact on our family. I have some idea of why they decided to come back but I still feel like I don't know the complete story - especially since my 2nd great grandfather's brother stayed out in Kansas. I will be adding the text of some of Ella Augusta Hastings Allen's writings which appeared in a women's magazine about life in Kansas on the left side of what will be a 2 page spread in my scrapbook. I have her writings in my family records, when I find them I will try to remember to take a few photos and update this post so you can see what that looks like. Of course I made a scrapbook process video - although sometime during the end my recorder went off unexpectedly - but I think I got most of the process on camera: Want to see the inspiration page?

This layout which was inspired by Story Play at Get It Scrapped is all about how my grandparents met. Journaling: Grandma Grace Flavin and Grandpa Allen Cunningham grew up spending their summers in the same beach town of Mattapoisette, MA.

Hey Scrapbookers! Today's layout is inspired by GET IT SCRAPPED's Story Play and it is all about my Grandma Grace, the page is actually a letter to her. Of course I made a scrapbook process video: Here are the words on the page: Dear Grandma: I miss you. I wish you could be here to see Mac and Allison - but more importantly for them to see you. I talk about you to them all the time so they do know you in a sense - but I can never fully capture the way you had of telling stories and keeping everyone entertained and laughing - you had an effortless comedic ability and timing that I don't think I've ever seen in anyone - except maybe a little bit in Allison - that funny without trying - the funny because it is candid and honest and true. You observed things about people that most people miss and you could relay your thoughts in the most delightful stories. And you never stopped talking. I miss your voice and your heart and I miss laughing with you. I love You.

This layout is a mash of inspiration of pages by Noell Hyman and Sarah Gleason in GET IT SCRAPPED's Story Play. I had a lot to say about the first difficult day of this school year and all that notebook paper gave me plenty of room to work through all of my feelings right there on the scrapbook page. And of course I made a scrapbook process video: Related articles Make Your Own Kit inspired by Get It Scrapped's Story Play Podcast: Paperclipping Roundtable Links to Online Scrapbooking Classes and Tutorials Awesome Scrapbooking Videos on You Tube (with links) Continue reading

This month I'm making scrapbooking kits and making lots and lots of pages: Last month was all about Product Play at GET IT SCRAPPEDand the contributors all made their own kits; that combined with Noell Hyman's share of her kits on the live Paperclipping crop; and add in that I love the Counterfeit Kit Club Challenge --- well, that all led to me deciding to challenge myself to Make My Own Kit inspired by this month's Story Play at Get It Scrapped. Because I tend to go overboard, I made three kits! This month I'll be playing with the kits and creating layouts that are inspired by the layouts that you can find in the membership section of GET IT SCRAPPED in the Story Play edition. Of course I made a process video for putting together the kits: I hope that you will make your own kits and play along with me this month - if you do, please leave a comment here, but share your kits and pages over at the GET IT SCRAPPED gallery.

Hi Scrapbookers: I've been making scrapbook process videos and a whole bunch of scrapbooking layouts that I'll be sharing starting September 1st in a blog series about using GET IT SCRAPPED's Story Play as inspiration for making your own kits and scraplifting lots and lots of pages. Meantime, I'm making some 2 Minute Scrapbook Tips Videos whenever I do something I feel like is a clever solution for me; plus it is hard for me to wait to share - so this gives me a little something to share with you now! This tip is all about how to use the negative space shapes that are not connected and how to transfer the shapes to your scrapbook page so that the shapes stay put in relation to each other: This tip is about how use use your Copic Markers with your Silhouette die cuts made of patterned paper: And here's a link to that Full Moon Party video that I mentioned in the Copic Marker video - thanks to Debbie Hodge for sharing this hilarious bit about a girl's first period: If you are a girl or have a girl, you must see this. Periods don't have glitter in them - scrapbook pages do. Way funny.

Here's the page and the scrapbooking process video. Enjoy. This page is about who the mother of my great grandmother, Ellen Louise Joyce, is: Mary O'Brien who was listed in my baby book or Mary Shutters who Ancestry DNA shows I'm super connected to DNA wise. I don't know the answer yet but this page gave me the opportunity to make notes so when I revisit this issue I can remember what I knew right now. Continue reading
