I often get asked about my process for designing a scrapbook page. Do I start with photos or product? Do I use sketches? How do I pick a design framework? And while I rarely follow the same process every time... Continue reading

One of the easiest ways to make a page come together fast is with one big photo! I love giving real estate to special shots, like this one that features Riely and her friends before their sophomore homecoming dance. S... Continue reading

There are so many variations of what I call the "wreath" frame and I always love this type of border for scrapbook pages. The large circle frame provides a perfect space to incorporate your photos, title and journaling - or... Continue reading

If you don't know my go-to page format is a grid design, then are we really friends?! It's a time-tested foundation I've used countless times on my scrapbook pages, because it just always WORKS! In the winter issue of SCT... Continue reading

I love a good cut file (and rarely create a layout without one!) and I especially love this free SCT cut file from Paige Evans! This versatile design could be used so many ways - on a housewarming card, as... Continue reading

Since my past few posts here have been all about the circles, I figured it was time to give other shapes some equal time! So today I'm taking a different angle...the triangle that is! S U P P L I... Continue reading

While I typically work with 4x6 (and smaller) photos on my scrapbook pages, there are some photos that just need to be enlarged! Our annual family photo shoot usually yields some great shots from a professional photographer, and I always... Continue reading

It's no secret I can't scrapbook without my trusty die cutter, the Silhouette Cameo, and I rarely create a page without it! When I first started scrapbooking, I used to hand-cut pieces from patterned paper, or trace stencils to cut... Continue reading
