STORY OF THE PAGE: Cole’s band, Want Slash Need, played their first paid bar gig. If that ain’t scrapworthy, I’m hard pressed to know what is. Plus, it’s appropriate teenage scrapbook material, right? I blogged about it last week, but knew the story needed a home in Cole’s album. Note: forgive my slightly crooked photo. I assure you it’s straight … Read More

I’m doing that Mom thing right now. You know the one. Moms whose children are not little and not doing adorable little things but instead, Moms whose kids are teenager and are doing the sports thing. And I LOVE it. Cole is not always thrilled at the idea of being, oh how does one say, scrapbooked. But he’s all over … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: Ultimate season has begun in Minnesota. Not familiar with ultimate? It’s like soccer but with discs. And it’s freaking awesome and so, so much fun to watch. I took some photos at last week’s game and wanted to use a few on a page to plop into Cole’s album. I’m feeling the digital right now and … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: Dan is a t-shirt guy. If I were to guess at the number of t-shirts he owns I’d say MANY. I know there are large quantities as I am the Doer of the Laundry. Last week he came home from work wearing a Back to the Future t-shirt. Apparently he pulled it out of one our Good Will bags that hadn’t … Read More

I’m going to introduce yet another installment of the Make a Page Monday series: say hello to the digital edition. I am biscrapual—hell, I’m triscrapual—I do traditional,  hybrid and digital pages. I like to hedge my bets on all memory keeping approaches. Ergo, I’ll be mixing in a few digital pages to the series. STORY OF THE PAGE: This page came … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: I made this page for the most recent issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine as part of my Clean & Simple column. The focus of the column was my favorite scrapbooking subject: me. Now I say that with a little cheekiness implied, but what I really mean is this: women need to tell their own … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: I’m guest blogging at Studio Calico this week and created a page based on some digital products from their latest kit. When I saw the card that said , “It’s going to be hard,” I felt it was the perfect piece around which to build a story of transition and change. I do document stuff in our … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: The year was 2003 and I had been scrapbooking like a fiend for just over a year at this point. I had my first digital camera and was amazed that I could shoot with no flash in low light and get any shot of consequence. Aidan was reading like a banshee—here she had a Pony Pals book between … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: I wanted to make a very Stacy Julian–inspired page, one that takes images from across a span of several years and combines them into one layout. In 2010, my gathering point was Cole and his love of baseball. I wrote about this page in 2010, but I didn’t dissect it from a design perspective. As I go through … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: I was feeling incredibly unapologetic for my love of hybrid scrapbooking. I remember thinking at the time, “Yes, I’m going to do a page full of type with a tiny photo and I don’t care what you think!” (Okay, maybe that’s not altogether true because if you look closely, you’ll see some classic Making Memories white … Read More
