In my class, Scrapbook Your Year, I talk about culling images to get to the ones I want to include in my yearly album. 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

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking10 Comments

STORY OF THE PAGE: Last week I celebrated my 50th birthday with some wine and a list of 50 Things to be grateful for. It was a fun way to remind myself of all the good things that come with another year on Planet Earth. Of course I was going to turn it into a layout because, duh. Also, I … Read More

Of course, there are no guarantees that next Monday will see another round, but that’s what makes life unpredictable and excitin! Not knowing when the next Make a Page Monday will appear. Right?

STORY OF THE PAGE: We bought a new car. It wasn’t planned, per se, but with a recent fender bender resulting in an unfixable Hyundai Santa Fe (my favorite car ever), we had to up our game for car shopping. We’ve been looking very casually for a few years so we knew what we were looking for. A fortuitous hook up … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: It is rare that I begin a page with just a product or a technique in mind, but such is the case with today’s page. I designed a cut file (one that you can download for free from Scrapbook & Cards Today), and thought: I have to try and use this. I had no story in … Read More

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

THE STORY OF THE PAGE: Move in day, Freshman year. All documented via iPhone by yours truly. DESIGN BREAKDOWN: This design features a very symmetrical balance. The three images on the top balance out the three images on the bottom. The title and journaling balance each other out in the center. There is repetition of photo size and color. Plus, an … Read More

STORY OF THE PAGE: We recently attended a family wedding on a gorgeous, summer day in Wisconsin and my Aidan decided to invite her Aidan to come along. One thing you’ll have to know if you hang around my daughter long enough is that you’re going to have your picture taken, and very likely that picture will be Instagrammed. (Although … Read More

Make a page monday: the triumphant return

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking30 Comments

Once upon a time in the Blog Days of Yore, I started a short-lived but riveting series entitled, Make a Page Monday (see the archives here.) The idea was simple: make a page, share it on Monday, talk about design, make a sketch, congratulate yourself on the clever alliteration. The problem was I couldn’t quite keep it up. The solution? Simplify. … Read More

Cathy ZielskeScrapbooking23 Comments

I made two layouts on National Scrapbook Day. (Okay, I started two layouts on National Scrapbook Day.) I finished them up last week and created a new series of digital templates designed for people who say, “Hey, I have a computer but I also like to make more traditional pages.” You know who you are: you are Hybrid People. No, … Read More
