Today’s layout is a celebration of a few things: 1.) Cole and his fabulous junior year in life and in ultimate. 2.) How amazing a sport ultimate is in general. 3.) How amazing renting big assed lenses can be. 4.) How much I love my new printer. First, let’s look at the page: There is nothing I love more than a … Read More

Scrapbook Page Share: Making Cards

A few weeks back, I’d posted about how card making felt like a good fit for me right now, creatively, considering there are a lot of stories that are no longer mine to tell. Someone suggested, “Why not make a layout about your new love of card making?” and I thought, “Heck yeah!” So I went through some of my … Read More

Scrapbook Your Year, April 2017 Pages

I fell a tiny bit behind in my year-long memory project known as Scrapbook Your Year. True, I have been focusing on awful lot on the making of cards, but my stories and photos still need a place to go, and here is where they ended up for April. I still adore this project, mostly because I can be a … Read More

Happy International Scrapbook Day, blog readers. Yes, it’s the one day of the year where we can shirk off EVERY responsibility and celebrate all things scrapbooking. Or something like that. Actually, as much as I would like to be making stuff today, I’m at an ultimate Frisbee tournament and no where near my craft/dining room. Never fear! I have put … Read More

My recent foray into the cardmaking and stamping world has been both fun, surprising and not without a price tag. And some people are all, “Cathy, what the hell? This is so unlike you.” And I get it. I do. But last week when I was trying to justify yet another purchase of Copic markers, I realized this excitement and … Read More

Scrapbook Your Year with Cathy at cathyzielske.com.

Another year in the life is on the books—literally! This month, I timed myself. I started working on my march pages at 7:37 a.m. on Sunday morning and completed them at 8:49 a.m. I’m sorry people, but that is some truly productive use of time. I started out with 410 photos. Many of my photos are related to this blog or … Read More

Obsessed with…

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking24 Comments

Craft room tours on YouTube. (And the Big Shot on my work table, but that’s for another post…) Maybe it’s my age. Maybe it’s my deep and abiding love for organization that is thwarted every day by my actual time and energy devoted to organizing (i.e. very, very little). Maybe it’s just that voyeuristic side of me that wonders what … Read More

Craft Room—er, dining room—Tour

The dining craft room was in desperate need of some love. Some organizational love, that is. Many of you know this already, but I don’t have a craft room per se. What I have is a dining room with unfinished wood floors where me (and others in my family) have made stuff for the past 20+ years. My main work … Read More
