This time around the table, we talked card making with Kristina Werner and Ana Cabrera. And in case you didn’t guess from the title of the episode…a crazy time was had! Come join the fun!

[Note: This is last week's episode that is posting late on Scrapbook Update due to my being out with the flu for several days. Episode #117 will post in the next day or two so Roundtable fans on Scrapbook Update will get a double this week!]

Noteworthy | 6.2.2012

It’s been a relatively quiet week in the scrapbook world this week…it seems many people decided to turn the Memorial Day weekend into Memorial Day week. But there’s still some news of note to share!

[Apologies for the fact that this week's Noteworthy is delayed and abbreviated. Apparently, flu viruses can decimate people AND editorial calendars.]

It’s hard to believe, but CHA Summer 2012 is only about 6 weeks away! My Little Shoebox gets the unofficial prize for the first sneak peek of the 2012 Chicago show, with a small peek of the “Secret Garden” collection:

Noteworthy | 3.23.2012

Things are warming up, and the paper crafting world is full of inspiring ideas, tutorials, new challenges, and even the announcement of a new e-book that will include Scrapbook Update editor Nancy Nally!

Let’s begin with a breathtaking tutorial on how to use Distress markers to stamp and create this beautiful card. Personally I’d frame Richele Christensen’s finished project instead! This would be perfect for a butterfly, flower, or any image really. I love the look and her photography of the steps and how-to instruction is concise and easy to understand. I am always amazed by her projects.

Jennifer McGuire shared a really interesting folded ribbon card on the May Arts blog this week, and it really caught my eye. Chevrons, banners, and twine are very popular right now, and this card combines the look of all three things.

My current favorite ribbon is this chevron twill. The colors are delicious, it is high quality and it seems to go with any type of project. For this card, I used a ribbon folding technique to add some fun interest and texture.

The post includes a video with how-to instruction, and the technique could easily be used as an embellishment on a scrapbook page, journal cover, or other project as well. Continue Reading →

Noteworthy | 3.9.2012

It has been a quiet week around the scrapbook world – no major announcements or huge batches of new products hitting store shelves, but it’s been an inspiring week never the less. I believe that many creative people are gearing up for winter’s end and the beginning of spring, while store owners make room for the massive amounts of new product that may be arriving as I type this.

Yes, with the new CHA goodies hitting store shelves and spring break approaching, blogs lighting up with pastels and Easter ideas and flowers beginning to grow – it’s hard for me not to love early March. Here’s a look at some inspiration for you this week:

On Jenni Bowlin’s JBS Mercantile blog this week designer Ranjini Malhotra shared a how-to for taking metal tart tins and turning them into cute Easter baskets. There are a lot of variations that could be created, and with the holiday being less than a month away now, it’s that time of year to be looking at inspiration! Continue Reading →

Noteworthy | 10.28.2011

The scrapbook world is preparing for the holidays this week it seems. Now I know that might seem extreme to some, but when we’re talking about providing ideas, inspiration, and helping to get ready to tackle holiday projects as crafters we do need all the time we can get! Of course, despite my love of the holiday season, I have more than just holiday spirit to share in this week’s Noteworthy column:

When looking through this week’s potential noteworthy stories, one name popped up three times. I’d say that is not only noteworthy, but lead off the week worthy! Ali Edwards is having a great week – and fans should be rejoicing. First she announced a brand new downloadable class available on her website called Storyology:

Topics covered during the almost 2-hour presentation include the reason why, getting ready to write, story mechanics, rhythms, etc. The class includes six different writing prompts and you are encouraged to take the time during the presentation to write your responses to those prompts (pause the video and then resume when you are ready).

Class includes a 7-page full-color PDF handout, plus 6 pages for responding to the writing prompts.

The class can be purchased here (cost $14). Continue Reading →
