Lynn Ghahary Lynn packed lots of “punch” on this layout through her use of colour, pattern, and shape—we loved the visual triangles created with both the star punches and the red polka dot paper. And, don’t miss her clever use of the tiny type letters on a miniature tag.

Summer Fullerton Summer added lots of movement to an otherwise linear layout by placing her photos at varying heights and by randomly positioning the brads around the page. Vertical borders, as well as the creatively-placed red title and sub-title, lead the eye from top to bottom.

By trimming her photos with white borders, Summer really defined the edges, particularly where the pictures overlap.

Davinie Fiero Look at the way Davinie incorporated the colour red so successfully on this layout about her dog—from the subtitle and the photo mat, to the scalloped borders and the stitching. Davinie says she was inspired by the colours and patterns of the BasicGrey papers to create this layout about her sweet, furry boy.

create magic with rub-ons

unique uses provide stellar results by S ummer F ullerton

Don’t let these delicate embellishments fool you—they may be thin, but rub-ons can make a powerful statement, both on and off the page.


ub-ons are very much like stamps, but without the mess (or potential mishaps). They can be applied directly onto layouts and cards, layered over photos,

and added to pre-made embellishments. Even the simplest of rub-ons often provide the perfect finishing touch to your paper projects. And with a few extra craft supplies, rub-ons can also be used in some very creative, interesting ways. Read on and give these ideas a try.

take rub-ons off the page and onto fabric Cut out several rub-on images and arrange them on your tote bag as desired Apply rub-ons to the bag just as you would to paper. Summer used BasicGrey’s Rub-On Roller and notes, “They went on just as easily paper.”

Summer’s addition of sewn-on buttons gives this tote a lot of home-spun charm.

Seal your project with

1 demystifying misting From sheer mists to opaque finishes, spray inks and misters come in a wide range of colours and hues. What they all have in common is that they provide your projects with the perfect amount of shimmery sparkle and shine.

Whether you layer up several pieces of felt and stitch them together, or make a rosebud embellishment like I did here, the creative possibilities are endless with this inexpensive craft supply that comes in a wide range of colours.

you’re not just a scrapbooker anymore! —digital workflow with stacy julian (part two) In our last issue, we established your role as the CMO (chief memory officer) of your household. In this issue, Stacy talks about the importance of diversifying your portfolio of documented memories.


e cannot expect ourselves to manage our current load of digital images the same way we approached our pictures when we used film. Why?

Because with digital photography the eight rolls of film has become 800 digital images! The good news is there are a myriad of options for preserving, using and sharing the hundreds of photos we take. And guess what? Diversifying (or choosing to use your collection of photos in several different ways) is smart. It increases the likelihood that others will stumble upon and enjoy your memories and it’s a lot of guilt-free fun. Since scrapbooking is about preserving and sharing memories, you get “points” for anything you do that accomplishes that goal—I promise. If you’re like me, you return from a vacation with hundreds of photos. While your caught up in the experience and snapping photos, you’re no doubt absolutely sure that you will create a big, beautiful scrapbook complete with pictures, maps, brochures and your insightful reflections. By the time you return, unpack and eventually upload images to your computer, your enthusiasm, while less determined, is still hopeful that someday you’ll get around to this overwhelming

In 2007, I spent two weekends teaching at scrapbooking events in Sydney, Australia and Wellington, New Zealand. I spent the week in between traversing the north island of New Zealand with my husband. Follow along as I illustrate, step-by-step, how I diversify (and document) one trip in several meaningful ways.

scrolling through images in my photo library. I rate or tag my most favourite photos and then print them in a 4x6 size and keep them in a large photo album for viewing. From there, I can pull pictures to create pages and projects.


Create a layout (or two!) As I browse my favourite prints over and over I come to realize what it is I most want to remember about a particular trip. With this story in mind, I create a layout for our family album

When you start a new project like a photo album, gather the materials you will use and store them together until the project is completed.

I’ll never forget the feeling of seeing the Sydney Opera House in person and witnessing a New Zealand rainbow at dusk—probably my two favourite reminders of my trip “down under” to teach scrapbooking. pinch me layout supplies PATTERNed PAPER, Echo Park, October Afternoon; DIE-CUT STICKERS, The Girls’ Paperie, October Afternoon; LETTER STICKERS, TREE, American Crafts; BUTTERFLY, Jenni Bowlin Studios; SCALLOP BORDER PUNCH, Stampin Up!


Use digital frames and gifts to display vacation images. There are numerous ways to highlight shared vacation memories. While digital frames can be pricey, I found they are worth every penny. For gift-giving, almost any online developer has great options like mugs, mouse pads and magnets.


Create a quickie album. After I’ve lived with my favourite vacation photos for a year or more, I like to compile them into a quick theme album that becomes part of our growing collection of family scrapbooks.

These albums tend to be about displaying

I have a hunch (while watching my four-yearold with my iPhone) that she will be completely savvy online and likely be drawn to a more diversified collection of digitally-documented memories. I say, let go of any pressure you feel to fully utilize one avenue of scrapbooking and start playing with some of the amazing and emerging technologies that will carry our stories into the future.

easy, detailed, expert Whatever level of difficulty appeals to you, our easy, detailed, expert column has fantastic elements to try today!

by L i sa T r u e s d e ll


ach year, as soon as the calendar flips over to October, my two boys start asking to go to the farmer’s market to pick out pumpkins. And, of course, while they search for the perfect pumpkin, I’m on the hunt for the perfect photo to document our annual

excursion. For each of my fall-inspired layouts, I started with the same three photos and then brought in a fun mix of patterns, colours, and textures (in the form of paper, lettering, and embellishments) to complement the photos.

supplies cardstock, American Crafts; patterned paper, Jenni Bowlin Studio, Studio Calico, October Afternoon; letter stickers and fabric tape, Studio Calico; staples, Tim Holtz

For my easy layout, I kept the design clean and simple by lining up my photos across the page. Layered strips of patterned paper worked to create borders above and below my photographs. I mixed mostly smaller scale patterns to keep the combination from being too busy, but incorporated a few scraps with a larger scale pattern (the letters, numbers, and apples) as embellishments for my page. After struggling for a title for a few minutes, I found myself relying on one of my favourite tried and true tricks—pulling a few important words from my journaling to create a meaningful title.

the 3T’s • sct

For my detailed layout, I chose a more dynamic photo arrangement and incorporated a yellow patterned paper underneath to tie them all together. I added a “spritz” of green to some corrugated alphas to help them coordinate with the other page elements, and then mixed them with letter stickers to add interest to the title. Taking a cue from my son’s jacket in the photos, I brought in a bit of dark blue patterned paper—it added a fun bit of contrast to the autumn colour scheme. I finished the page with a trio of rub-on birdies, three buttons tied with twine, and a bit of machine stitching. additional supplies patterned paper, Making Memories; rub-ons, Studio Calico; corrugated alphas, Jillibean Soup; letter stickers, October Afternoon; buttons, Buttons Galore; punches, Fiskars; mist, Maya Mist

For my expert layout, I wanted to kick things up a notch by adding in some of my favourite techniques. First, I masked off a rectangle in the middle of the page and misted the background paper green. Next, I enlarged one photo and printed it without a border before matting it on yellow fabric paper—this gave the page a clear focal point. Stamped journaling lines gave me more room to add handwritten journaling and helped to balance out the additional photos on the right side of the page. Next, I added a die-cut title and a small grouping of embellishments to the top left corner. Finally, I created a visual triangle of rubon birds and gems to help lead the eye around the page. additional supplies stamps, Studio Calico; ink, Ranger; fabric paper, American Crafts; brad, BasicGrey; gems, My Mind’s Eye; label sticker, October Afternoon; letter stickers, BasicGrey; die-cut letters, Slice by Making Memories

right outside my door finding inspiration in your everyday surroundings

by L i sa K i sc h

What scrapbooking inspiration awaits you right outside your door? In the hustle and bustle of life, we often fail to look left and right, much less look up. But if you just take a moment and look, you’ll discover so much scrapbooking potential around you. Join Lisa and Davinie as they uncover the world around them.


sct • the 3I’s


love my neighbourhood in downtown Toronto. A block from the quiet shores of Lake Ontario, and a thirty minute streetcar ride to the heart of the city, I feel like

we have the best of both worlds. Most days I am out of the house early for a walk with the kids in the stroller. I often have my camera with me, and I’ll stop to take a few shots— not only to document our favourite stops along the way, but also as inspiration for my scrapbook pages. Did you know that right outside your door there is a wealth of scrapbook inspiration? From layout topics, to design, to colour palettes—taking time to photograph the world outside your front door can become a treasure trove of ideas.

Start at the beginning I have a challenge for you. Bring your camera with you wherever you go on a typical day, and take a dozen photographs. Shoot whatever catches your eye—a street sign, a storefront, an ad on a city bus—and then later on have a look at the batch. What do you love about these images? What details made each subject something you wanted to photograph? Was it the lettering on the sign above the bookstore, or the colour combo in the ad on the side of a city bus? Recognizing what pleases your eye is the first step to creating a layout you love.

My daily walk provided the inspiration for this layout, stopping to photograph all of our favourite shops and destinations on our regular route. I often wonder how many times these shops have changed over the years, and how different the main street might look when our girls are grown up.

Lisa loves her city life and the fact that so much urban culture is within walking distance from her home. She played up her love of sushi on this layout with her choice of colour scheme, her fun title and, of course, the complementary photos that drive the theme of her page.

This theory doesn’t just apply to city folk like me. A rural landscape can be just as inspiring, if not more so. For this article, I asked design team member, Davinie Fiero, to play “country mouse” to my “city mouse.” Davinie lives with her husband and two children on two acres in Redmond, Oregon, and her layouts perfectly embody that country inspiration.

Davinie thanks the local pumpkin farmer for providing the rich and vibrant colour palette for her “Pumpkin Patch” layout. She chose a subtly patterned shade of green to mimic the sky, picked up the dark roof of the barn with her title, and pulled various other “earthy” shades for her creatively layered vertical border.

Putting it into practice Now that you’ve looked through your photos and identified what it is that appeals to you, here are some practical ways to apply those details to your layout design: Once you’ve discovered a pleasing colour palette in your photos, find similar tones in your cardstock and pattern paper for an interesting combination. For digital artists, use the eye dropper tool to sample each colour Flowers, trees and butterflies continue to be hot trends, so why not take a photograph of something organic and indigenous to your locale, such as a flower. Print the photo onto cardstock and cut the image out for an instant, custom embellishment I love architectural details. Study a building that you love— interesting adornments on its facade such as corbels, brick work and inlaid glass, are all patterns that can be reflected in paper design Store signs are often straight forward and to the point—an excellent source of inspiration for a good title area

here’s your topic Now that we’ve covered how to find design inspiration within your images, let’s use those photos you took on your walkabout and scrap them! A “day in the life” style layout is always a pleasure to look back on. Some topics you might want to consider include: The places and people that you meet each day A favourite restaurant A list of errands about town—the good, the bad and the ugly.
