October Daily-Ish Album…It’s Perpetual and I’m Loving It!

In 2021, I started an October Daily album. After being inspired by other scrapbook designers who create the most stunning October Daily albums, I wanted to dive in and give it a try. October Daily is like December Daily (by Ali Edwards), however, the idea is to document stories about your everyday life during the fall and Halloween season. I’ve always created traditional 12×12 inch layouts to document my fall memories. But, after many years of scrapbooking, I welcome the opportunity to scrapbook my autumn stories in a different format.

So, with good intentions, I started an October Daily album last fall. I documented a total of four stories, then I abandoned the project! As it turns out, my plate was filled to the brim with projects and deadlines, so my October Daily album got pushed to the side.

However, this year I decided to continue this project but with a different mindset…my October Daily project will be a perpetual album! I am giving myself the freedom to add to this project whenever I want throughout the fall season over multiple years.

Once an album is filled, I’ll just start a new one. This approach offers a ton of flexibility and allows me to focus on the spirit of the project versus worrying about an arbitrary self-imposed deadline to “finish” this album.

Today on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel, I’m continuing my October Daily project by creating two new spreads (story #5 and #6) along with a quick look at the layouts I completed before I stopped working on this project in 2021. Be sure to click on the following video to see these pages come together! Also, photos of today’s projects are posted below.

Companies Mentioned In the Video: Ali Edwards, Elle’s Studio, Citrus Twist, and The Paper Person Shop

Citrus Twist Life Crafted Album: To learn more about the album featured in today’s video, click HERE.

For this project, I’m working in a travelers notebook style format (4.25 x 8.25 inches). I find this size to be perfect for everyday and theme-based mini albums.

My goal for this project is to keep my pages simple and clean, with a focus on documenting my everyday stories throughout the month of October.

I love that there are so many options and variations of the October Daily project! Some people create mini albums, while others opt for notebook style projects, even planner spreads! You can truly make this project your own.

I’m so excited to share more of layouts from my October Daily album in the coming weeks! So far, I am having a blast documenting my fall adventures and using a good amount of my fall themed scrapbooking goodies!

Stay tuned for more to come!

Layering Tutorial Series! Scrapbook Design Concepts for High Impact Layered Embellishment Clusters!

This week, I’m continuing my Layering Series on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel with a look at design concepts and product recommendations for creating high impact layered embellishment clusters. If you love the look of layered clusters on a scrapbook layout but are not sure what type of products to use, no worries, I’ve got you covered!

High impact layered embellishment clusters contain elements that have a variety of textures, colors, and sizes. Most scrapbookers use cardstock die cuts to create embellishments clusters (and there is nothing wrong with that). However, to take your layered embellishment clusters to the next level, consider using a variety of elements such as wood veneer, acrylic, cork, enamel dots, or puffy elements when creating layered clusters.

In today’s video, I share a few design concepts that can be used to create high impact layered embellishments clusters. These concepts include:

  • Texture
  • Shape
  • Color
  • Size
  • Scale

Together, these design concepts can help inform the products you select for your scrapbook projects and the overall design of your layered composition. To learn more, click on the video below!

Here’s an example of these concepts at play!

This 12×12 inch layout features a variety of elements of different sizes, shapes, textures, and scale. The top cluster houses a large title which is flanked by mid-size and smaller elements. This concept is repeated for the other layered clusters. To add interest to the layered clusters, I used chipboard elements, cardstock die cuts, enamel dots, tags, labels, and stickers. Together, all of these elements help to create high impact layered embellishment clusters.

Here are a few more layouts where I used these design concepts to create layered embellishments clusters!

This layout features cardstock frames, chipboard floral elements, a puffy sticker banner, chipboard hearts, and enamel dots.

This grid design layout features lots of wood veneer, cardstock die cuts, and chipboard elements to create small layered clusters throughout the composition. All of the elements range in size, shape, scale, and texture.

And lastly, this layout features fabric pockets that are layered with cardstock die cuts, chipboard elements, fabric butterflies, and wood veneer heart buttons. The varied size, texture, and scale of these elements creates a stunning layered scrapbook page!

The next time you create layered embellishment clusters on a scrapbook project, be sure to consider these design concepts and product recommendations. If you are inspired to test out these concepts, feel free share what you make with the Victoria Marie Facebook Group Community!
