Scrapbook Page Share: Hello Eighteen (process video)

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking9 Comments

Last month, my youngest child turned 18. I only have two, as you may or may not know, so this is my baby and he is now a legal adult. I snapped a shot of him on his 18th birthday and knew I wanted to use it for a page from mama to son. I decided to film a process … Read More

Mini Album Project: a book of photos and words for the school year

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking33 Comments

Three years ago I shared a mini album project I made for my then senior in high school daughter, Aidan. It was a very simple concept: one photo and one short, written message or memory for each week of that glorious final year of high school. When it was over, I uploaded all of the digital pages to Artifact Uprising … Read More

Another month, another set of pages, another sense of, “I love this system!” That’s my feeling as I put one more set of memories on the books, so to speak. After falling a month behind last month, I decided to just knock out the month of July on Sunday and did so in about an hour. I don’t tell you … Read More

Welcome back, friends, to another installment of Scrapbook Your Year! I played catch up and knocked out another month for my year long album project. Plus, I decided to record a time-lapse video with a few of my thoughts about it. Number of Photos Taken in May: 996 (again, there was a big sports tourney) but I pared that number … Read More

I fell behind a little in my monthly scrapbook project  but it didn’t take long to work my Scrapbook Your Year process and get closer to being back on track! Number of Photos Taken in May: 1,758 (there were three ultimate tournaments and mama rented a big assed lens!) I pared that number down to 560 via much deleting. Once … Read More

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

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

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
