Did You Catch the Replay? YouTube Livestream Scrapbook Process Video!

The recorded replay of the Victoria Marie YouTube Livestream Scrapbook Process Video (aired 10/19/2020) is available for your viewing pleasure!

During this live session, I created a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout featuring the Tori Kit by Felicity Jane.

Every year, I create a scrapbook layout to celebrate my mom’s birthday. She turned 72 years young this month. Sadly, in the midst of my busy schedule, I totally forgot her birthday! I felt so horrible (still do). But, the day was saved with tons of apologies, hugs and kisses, handmade cards, and dinner at Red Lobster. Mom loved it!

Because this layout has a really large title, I didn’t have much room for journaling. To remedy this, I created hidden journaling, attached on the back of the layout using a handmade pocket. The tab invites the viewer to read the hidden journaling.

Be sure to check out the recorded replay for this project! I will be back LIVE on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel this Friday with another scrapbooking project!

My Holiday Scrapbooking Cart…Because I’m EXTRA!

So, I did a thing…

With everything going on in the world right now (i.e. pandemic, crazy politics, civil unrest), I needed a project to lift my spirits and to bring a bit of joy and sparkle into my studio.

I present to you…my Holiday Scrapbooking Cart!

During the holiday season, this cart will house all of my December Daily and other holiday themed products. I wanted something that was easy to maintain, quick to assemble, and could be rolled around my craft room. I love the idea of having all of my holiday products in one spot when I am ready to work on my December Daily and other projects.

To see a quick tour of this cart, click on the video below or head to the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel!

Materials Used:

  1. Hudson Rolling Cart by Recollections (Michaels)
  2. Three Tiered Letter Organizer – I purchased this organizer over three years ago from my local Tuesday Morning. I repurposed it to house tags, chipboard stickers, stamps, and extra page protectors for my December Daily Album.
  3. Small Metal Containers – Michaels (purchased two years ago); they contain chipboard numbers, metal embellishments, acrylic pieces, and wooden tags.
  4. Square Fabric Containers – Target Dollar Spot (purchased in Spring 2020); houses pocket cards, die cuts, twine and fibers.
  5. Condiments Tray – Dollar Spot; contains small dimensional embellishments to such as leatherette pieces, chipboard, and wood veneer.
  6. Twinkle Lights – Target Dollar Spot
  7. Bow – ribbon from my stash!

The top level of my cart also houses my 2018 – 2020 December Daily Albums. Sadly, my 2018 and 2019 albums are not finished. I plan on completing these albums before the end of the year while working on my 2020 album – wish me luck! LOL!

I am so excited to start my holiday projects! Having an organized spot for all of my goodies, complete with twinkle lights and bow, certainly lifts my spirit!

I hope you are inspired to create your own Holiday Scrapbooking Cart! Start by looking for items around your home that can used to organize your materials. Keep in mind that this project can be done on a budget! Also, you can use easily re-theme this cart for different seasons, other holidays, etc.!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure take the time to add a bit of joy and sparkle to your creative space, corner, or nook!

Fun Projects Using the We R Memory Keepers Button Press!

Hey Scrap Bosses! I am so excited to share my first project with We R Memory Keepers (American Crafts), using the new Button Press! If you enjoy making buttons, then this tool is a must have!

We R Memory Keepers Button Press

The We R Memory Keepers Button Press is the perfect tool for all of your button making projects – from embellishments for scrapbook layouts to creating buttons for special occasions (i.e. birthdays).

Today, I am sharing three cards that feature custom button embellishments made with pattern paper from the new Vicki Boutin Storyteller Collection and the WRMK Button Press. I had a blast making these fun embellishments for my projects!

The first card features three small buttons, all created using a variety of pattern papers from the Storyteller Collection. Using the circle die tool that is included with the Button Press, I was able to isolate the pattern paper images that I wanted to be prominent on the buttons. I positioned the three buttons in a row on the left side of my card.

Note: Since the buttons used on all of my projects will not be worn, I opted to remove the pin element and replace it with foam circles (provided with the Button Press tool). That way, I can easily adhere buttons to any project!

For the second card, I used the Button Press to make a medium size button that serves as the middle element of a die cut flower. Using coordinating pattern paper from the Storyteller Collection made this element the focal point of this card.

For the third card, I created a large button that features a precious little bird from the Storyteller Songbird pattern paper. The die tool included with the Button Press made it easy cut this image! This large button was adhered to the right side of the card and layered on top of die cuts from the Storyteller Collection.

I had so much fun using the WRMK Button Press! And I hope you are inspired to create fun projects using this button maker as well.

Stay tuned for more projects coming soon to the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel and Blog! Thanks for stopping by!
