Be still, my heart. It is true, you know, that the days are long but the years are short. I have been immersed in nostalgia as I prepare for my son’s high school graduation in less than a month. I decided to create a layout using some of the photos that appeared on his graduation announcement. I started this hybrid … Read More

As my son’s senior year is winding down, I realized I have a few stories to tell that really are my story to share. And one of the stories I wanted to document is that I’ve gotten better at being a mom. Now I don’t say this in a cocky way, my friends. Not at all. I say this in … Read More

The basic hybrid process—one that starts on the computer and ends with a paper scrapbook page—is really my go to memory keeping approach. This page … Read More

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

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.

STORY OF THE PAGE: How to document a 17-1/2 year old in a way that isn’t cutesy or generally unappealing to said teen? That, my memory keeping friends, is always the challenge I face.

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking14 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.

In my opening presentation, there is a photo I linger on for a minute and decide, “Nope. This one needs its own page!” Today I’m sharing that page on a Friday edition of Make a Page … Read More
