Webster's Pages Scrapbook Guest Designer

I was thrilled to be asked to Guest Design for the beautiful Webster's Pages "Our Travels" collection. I requested this collection because I adore Adrienne Looman's beautiful designs and wanted to document some of my recent travels.

Here are the projects that I created for them using this gorgeous travel collection:

Make It Meaningful: Family Mini Album

For this week's "Make It Meaningful" bonus project I wanted to share a family mini album that comes together very quickly. Using some of your favorite scrapbooking papers and stickers, you can easily make one for a special family member.

To start with, I cut up 3x4" and 4x6" journaling cards from the "Moments and Memories" collection from Carta Bella Paper.

Then I embellished the album with stickers, buttons, ribbons, and more. Here's the sticker sheet from this same collection:

And here are the inside pages of this album:

Be sure to pin your favorite pages of this project. You can find additional paper crafting projects here on my blog by searching my sidebar with the words "Make It Meaningful." Inspired by my Two Peas In a Bucket scrapbooking process video series, I wanted to create additional "bonus" projects that also have meaning. You can find anything from cards, to paper crafting projects and more in this crafting series here on my blog.

Diary of a Memory Keeper #6: What Camera are You Currently Using?

In this week's video I discuss the cameras I am using. I currently own a Nikon D50 and a Nikon D90. I'm also using a Nikkor kit lens (28-80mm) and a lens I LOVE for photographing people: Nikkor 50mm 1:1.8. They are great lenses.

You can watch this week's pre-recorded video HERE on my Youtube channel or below:

Just a few more weeks, and I'll be settled in my new home and can film some videos in my new space. In fact, I may need some help planning that new space so perhaps we should discuss that in an upcoming video. In the meantime, I filmed a few of these ahead of time so I could still continue chatting with my online friends. This was one of those vlog entries.

My Last (and Never-Before Published) 2Peas Make It Meaningful Scrapbooking Process Video

I wanted to share my very last scrapbooking process video project for Two Peas In a Bucket. This would have been published the Friday after their big shut-down announcement. I've held onto it for a few weeks trying to decide what to do. I thought it was high time to share it, though.

Here's a a few close-up photos of this project:

You can watch the full start-to-finish video HERE on my personal Youtube channel or below.

Now that we have a home we're hoping to soon move to, I'm hoping to get back to filming a few new videos. I miss having a weekly video to share with you. In the meantime, be sure to check out my process videos for Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine HERE and Echo Park Paper HERE.
