The Busy Scrapper | A Scrapper’s Style Interview with Traci Reed

Hi Traci! Welcome to Simply Tiffany Studios. Why don’t we start off by hearing a little bit about you and how you became interested in digital scrapbooking.

I’m an almost-30-year-old wife and momma of three boys (just shoot me now please!). My husband Patrick and I live in Sunny northern California, where I was born and raised. I’ve been scrapbooking since I was 9 years old and digital scrapbooking since 19. I started designing when I was 20 in 2004 and am proud to call “Scrapbook Designer” my full time occupation!

If you had to pick three words to describe your current style, what would they be?

New | Window System Collection One — Framed Pocket Style Templates

Calling all digital pocket scrapbookers. Looking for a twist and tug on your current system? Tiffany’s dreamed up something awesome that just might be perfect for your next page using her own pages as inspiration. Check out what she had to say …

“One thing I’ve learned in all my long scrapbooking years is that I’m NOT a daily documenter. The day to day happenings of our lives won’t make it in my scrapbook pages because I enjoy capturing random moments and unique pages. But, sadly, my event-related layouts go un-scrapbooked (like that Disney trip I took in 2009). Until now!

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 …

The Project Lifer | A Scrapper’s Style Interview with Heather Johnson

Hi Heather! Welcome to Simply Tiffany Studios. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started in digital scrapbooking?

I am an almost 40-year-old mom who lives in Minnesota with my husband and two girls, ages 5 and 1. I began paper scrapping about thirteen years ago, but truthfully I bought more supplies than I ever used. And the big black rolly-cart? Had two!

In 2008 I made my first photo book online, which led me to discover there was something called digital scrapbooking. After that I gave everything paper-based away. Digital scrapbooking had me hooked from the start because there was no mess involved, I could travel with it easily and nothing was permanent. I am prone to changing my mind a lot while I create which didn’t work so well with adhesives (even if they said they were “semi-permanent”).

Capturing the Everyday | A Scrapper’s Style Interview with Jennifer Hignite

Hi Jennifer!  Welcome to Simply Tiffany Studios.  Tell us a little bit about yourself and your digital scrapbooking.

I am a 33-year-old single mom of three (not so little) boys who keep me very busy, are the love of my life and the reason I scrapbook.

I started scrapbooking traditionally back in December of 2001 with the birth of my first son, Dylan, and a copy of BHG Scrapbooks Etc. magazine.  I was looking for a way to document all of the photos I was taking at the time and fell in love with the layouts in the magazine.  With the birth of my second son in 2003 this simple pastime turned into a full fledged obsession!

I found online scrapbooking websites like Two Peas in a Bucket, and fell even more in love with the creative side of memory keeping.  As my boys got older, my scrapbooking took a backseat to everyday life, and the amount of my memory keeping sadly dwindled.

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

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

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!

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!
