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. I’m always looking for some cool, graphic ways to save those little bits of his life in a way that isn’t an assault on his coolness. … Read More

Make a Page Monday: Favorite 12 Photos of the Year

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. I repeated … Read More

The design behind a classic hybrid layout from CZ Design.

STORY OF THE PAGE: I made this layout a number of years ago to celebrate a single photo. This layout was featured in my first book, Clean & Simple Scrapbooking.

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: 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 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: 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
