Make a Page Monday: Favorite 12 Photos of the Year

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking2 Comments

STORY OF THE PAGE: I’m a sucker for a good list, and last week I designed a digital template to celebrate my favorite 12 photos from 2016. I approached it very methodically: I looked at each month from my Scrapbook Your Year project, and picked my favorite shot from that month. I added one descriptive line for journaling. I repeated … Read More

Hybrid Scrapbooking: My Intention for 2017

And here we go with another year of memory keeping. I started scrapbooking in 2003. Or was it 2002? I think it was the former. Either way, that is a hella long time to have a hobby and actually keep up with it. It started innocently enough by walking into a local scrapbook store and then finding an online community … Read More

Scrapbook Your Year with Cathy Zielske.

Last week, the album I spent all of 2016 assembling finally arrived fresh from the printer and into my eager hands. And yep, I am in love. The album is exactly what I’d hoped for: a year in the life that is both comprehensive and easily digested. 50 pages of memories is exactly my cup of tea, ladies. And I have a … Read More

Cathy Zielske's simple method to documenting your year one month at a time.

And just like that, I have wrapped up one year of my life in a scrapbook for 2016. (Okay, not just like that—it did take a full year of living, right?) But I have completed one year using my simplified approach to documenting life, one month and four pages at a time. Here are my pages for December 2016. I … Read More

December Daily 2016, the video wrap up

Cathy Zielske's simple take on December Daily.

I did something a little unconventional to wrap up this album project. The last pages I made were for Day 21, and then I kind of stopped doing the nightly recounting of the day. Here’s what I’ve learned about me: if it’s some sort of daily project and I don’t keep up or at the very least keep notes, I … Read More

Cathy Zielske's simple take on December Daily.

I’m sharing the last few pages before Christmas today. I’m looking forward to spending the weekend with family and then not eating sugar cookies come Boxing Day (yes, my Canadian “roots” are showing.) Again, this has been such a simple approach to this project, the simplest version yet. I really do love how it’s turned out and will try to … Read More

Cathy Zielske's simple take on December Daily.

I’m sharing a few more pages today from my December Daily album. And yes, these ones include edibles. Or at least the inspiration to make them! I’ve been sharing a bit of my cookie-making process on my Instagram story (although they might be expired by now, so I’ll have to post more for round two which we are icing tomorrow.) … Read More

Cathy Zielske's take on December Daily.

This simple 6 x 4 album project is moving along nicely. I already have surpassed the progress of 2015, so I think this approach works for me. Here are a few more pages from the album. You know it’s been cold here, right? I know it’s been cold all over, but holy nut balls, when it gets below zero you … Read More

I’m sharing a few more pages today from my album. Again, I’m not really adding anything except the numbers from Ali’s kit and a handful of her digital files. I know it might seem like it’s a bit repetitive and not super crafty, but I’m loving the simplicity and am pretty sure I’ll finish the album this year. I shot the cards … Read More

Today I’ve  got a few more entries in my simple December Daily album. One thing I did for a few entries was take some of the digital papers from Ali Edwards’ digital kit and shrink them down to make 3 x 4 cards.  This gives me a way to use her fun patterns at smaller sizes. Let’s peek at the … Read More
