As soon as I started pocket scrapbooking, I knew I needed layers. Lots and lots of layers. Because layers let me tuck things under, pull pieces through, and add a lot of dimension to my layouts without looking cluttered. And then it came to me — why don’t we have digital Pocket Journal Cards? The kind that allows us to tuck, pull, and stuff a lot of ‘ish into other ‘ish and still look organized? We didn’t!
And like Bigwell says, “See a need, fill a need!”
Introducing Pocket Journal Card Templates! There are a total of 25 templates and they were released sporadically through January during the Pixels & Company $1 sale! Take a look at all of the packs, which include Original, Shaped, Framed, Noteworthy, and Notched varieties.

You gals have heard me chatter a lot lately about Pocket Scrapbooking and getting the memories recorded. But not much about the classes produced over at Scrapaneers lately, which I enjoy producing thoroughly! And the latest collaboration class is one of our biggest, and most technique heavy, classes to date!
The brand new All Stars 2 class collaborates lessons from myself, Amanda Taylor, Jana Morton, Amy Kingsford, Wendy Zines, and Cilenia Curtis! And we’re offering our best tricks for creating pixel magic in the areas of Cloning, Healing, Transparent Layers, Sketching & Painted Art, Dimensional Effects, Paper Creation and Lightroom techniques. You can learn more about our individual lessons here.
My long — think almost a half hour video lesson — is the Paper Machine Workshop where I share in great detail how to produce beautiful, organic (non-patterned), adorned, grungy papers. We’re not talking solid, textured papers here. We’re talking organic designs! Like this:
I’m flipping excited because it’s a set of techniques I’ve wanted to share for ages! But wasn’t quite long enough for a full-fledged class. Within the All Stars 2 collaboration class; however, I can introduce you to grungy digital paper creation art and you will become a paper-creating machine!
And there are five other lessons just as intense and kick-butt as mine!
All Star Techniques 2 opens for registration this Monday at a steal of a deal! But you can win a complimentary seat by entering my giveaway first!

Hey there! What wonderful responses and ideas y’all shared about starting Project Life. Thank you. I completed my third layout (week 52) and I’ll be honest. I’m finding real value in what I’ve crafted thus far.
Sigh. I caved. For years I avoided Project Life because I felt it wouldn’t fit my scrapbooking style. Even after crafting the Window System for my vacation photos earlier this year, I was still on the fence. And then the truth dawned on me: what would I, and my kids, appreciate in the future? My style or our thoughts? This art or my messages? Obviously, we care about our thoughts and the messages!
And when I look back at my childhood photos do I balk at the stiff polaroids with faded colors? Or do I cherish each and every single one? Sugar, I love every single one — even the ones without dates! No, they’re not digital, professional, or composed correctly. But they highlight my favorite memories and capture my family. Thus, I had my answer!
Hello, Cathy, and welcome to Simply Tiffany Studios! As a big fan of your work, I’m so excited to have a little “sit down” chat with you. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you began digital scrapbooking?
Hello! I am so honored to be interviewed! I am a mom of two lovely girls and wife to an indie video game developer. Recently, I became a creative business owner of Catshy Crafts, an online shop. It is truly my baby. I design and create everything for the shop, from business cards to my hand-embroidered pieces to my website.
After taking the summer off from weekly video tutorials to concentrate on the launch of Scrapaneers, I’m SO excited to be back in the tutorial room creating weekly vids for y’all! My homies.
This week’s video begins the start of something new and extremely cool! The video series are now sponsored by digital enthusiasts and companies around the web, which allows me to provide more in-depth content — something I KNOW you’ll love.
