I’ve been seeing a lot of glimmer paste showing up on the old Instagram of late (this card caught my eye, and this one, too!) and thought I would give it a go and create a simple Valentine’s Day card for the hubs.

I have been starting the very initial stages of Marie Kondo-ing the crap out of my life. While I have only seen one episode of her new Netflix Series, it has inspired me to begin in a logical place: my closet. And let me tell you this: I have only just begun to clean. That said, one thing that lives … Read More

Are you ever stumped for ideas on color? Even as a person who has worked in design for, oh, 28 years now—yes, I’m seasoned, ladies—I have always been challenged by choosing color combinations.

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking, Tutorials11 Comments

My year-long scrapbooking project, Scrapbook Your Year, has yielded another volume of memories and is now in printed form. It’s always so cool to get the 12 x 12 book in hand because for most of this project, it’s just me and layered templates and photos.

I have committed myself to posting each month about my self-care process with all of its upsides and downsides for 2019. If you’d like a recap from 2018, it goes this this: about half-way through, I sort of gave up. End of story. I gave up so hard last year that I was not going to offer my Fit e-course … Read More

Crap-free scrapbooking at cathyzielske.com

Two things are true: 1) I love scrapbooking, and 2) I hate proofreading. It’s been a while since I shared a new layout and today’s page is making me all kinds of happy. At least it was until I was taking photos of it and there it was: a typo in the journaling.* But if you know me, you know … Read More

Valentines Two Ways: Simple & a Bit Stepped Up

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials11 Comments

I’m challenging myself in 2019 to do more with the supplies I have and one way I can do this is to show multiple cards that are created with essentially the same products and supplies. I can’t promise you I’ll do this every time because holy crap, apparently it takes longer plan out and film two at a time. (Still … Read More
