How to Cut a Negative Shape into a Pocket Style Template

Howdy fellow digital scrapbookers! We’ve spent the last few weeks here at Simply Tiffany learning more about Project Life in interviews with Jennifer Hignite and Heather Johnson. Project Life , or what’s becoming a hot trend as pocket scrapbooking, seems like such an interesting system for documenting our lives simply and efficiently.

Even I, a die-hard loving my unique design pages scrapbooker, can see the benefit of the system. More on that coming up later this week …

How I Moved From Scrapbook Pages that Sucked to Pages that Kicked Butt

From Sucks to Kickbutt

Last week, I shared why I felt my first scrapbook pages sucked. Today, I’ll share how I moved from scrapbook pages that sucked to pages that kicked butt.

My Secret Truth

2005 was a very weird year for me as a scrapbooker. I submitted my first digital scrapbooking pages as an entry for the Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame, and won. Mind freaking blown! Why? Well being recognized as one of the top 25 entries was incredible and quite humbling. The highlight of the event came from Lisa Bernson who complimented me on my storytelling and journaling — the focus of most of my pages.

But here’s the stinking truth: not one of the pages I created for my entry made it into my scrapbook albums! Honestly, I designed them for the contest, not for me. And because of this honest truth, I felt undeserving of the honor at the time. It feels good to get it off my chest by sharing here.

New | Wicked Crooked Templates

sts_febFEATURE_9

I’m always kinda geeked to debut a line of templates, but this set ranks high amongst the bunch. See, this new set was inspired by my template team. Last week during the release of Love’s Delight, one template — the crooked one — sparked such a heated debate over who would scrap with it first. We were so amused!

Then the lightbulb flickered over my head and inspiration sparked! Why not create a versatile arrangement of “Crooked” templates? Thus Wicked Crookeds were born:

Why My First Scrapbook Page SUCKED!

sts_febFEATURE_16

For all of the Scrapper’s Style Interviews I’ve conducted, the one person’s story I haven’t told is my own. Thus begins the tale of my scrapbooking journey.

My Beginnings

Look, I’m going to be straight-up honest. Keep it one hundred, as the young folks like to say. I had no clue what I was doing when I crafted my first scrapbook page. I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my photos, where they should go, how many photos I should use, what background paper would help my photos shine, or what the hell an embellishment was and why I should, could, or would use it. I was clueless. Lost!

The 2013 Simply Tiffany Page Artists

I was ecstatic and humbled by the amount of applications received from both fans of Simply Tiffany and digi-scrap lovers. In the end, newcomers were chosen based on what styles were no longer represented on the current team and the finer points of crafting pages from color mixing to journaling to using a template and making it your own. I pulled out a couple of hairs on my head during the process.

But they’ll grow back! Without further ado, announcing the new talented individuals on the Simply Tiffany team … 

To everyone who applied: thank you! You should have received an email from me, but if you didn’t please holla at me!
