Happy National (International) Scrapbook Day! Let’s Make a Layout!

Happy National (International) Scrapbook Day! I hope you are taking a little time this weekend to relax and to enjoy our amazing storytelling hobby! If you are looking for a bit of creative inspiration, check out my latest scrapbook process video, now available on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel!

In this video, I am documenting my second year on the Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine Design Team. I love scrapbooking about my creative adventures and my opportunities to work as a professional designer in this industry. Designing for Scrapbook and Cards Today has been a dream and I’m so proud to work with some of the best designers in the industry. To learn more about Scrapbook and Cards Today and to subscribe to the awesome publication, click HERE!

For this project, I used items from the Paige Evans Wonders Collection and the Hip Kit Club March 2021 Embellishment Kit, along with an electronic cut file by Paige Evans called Create (available products listed below). I wanted to make a clean, bright, and whimsical layout with layered floral clusters and a delicate title.

I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 to cut the Create electronic cut file out of American Crafts White Textured Cardstock. The letters were shaded with Distress Oxide Ink by Tim Holtz and popped up on foam squares for added dimension.

Clusters of die cut florals and accents create a frame around the 5×5 inch photo. I love how the vellum butterflies appear as though they are floating around the layout!

NEW! Scrapbook Process Video: Daily Burn 365 (I Messed Up the Title!)

Today, I’m sharing a brand new scrapbook layout called Daily Burn 365 using the Paige Evans Wonders Collection by American Crafts. To be honest, this layout took me forever and a day to complete! I blame my talent for overthinking the design process and seeking perfection. Is it my favorite layout? Nope. But, it is done and that’s all that matters!

Check it out!

Since 2016, I have subscribed to an online fitness program called Daily Burn 365. As the name suggests, subscribers can stream a new workout daily (365) that can be completed at anytime. There are a variety of workouts available to include cardio, yoga, and strength training.

Over the past year, I have decided to do the Daily Burn workouts at least 5-6 days a week as a way of managing my anxiety; a little something I discovered in 2020 (I’m not sure why, hmmm….😀).

I absolutely love this program because all of the workouts are under 30 minutes and they are designed for all skill levels. So, I decided to create a layout to document my fitness journey and how this program has helped me to stay active, right from comfort of my own home.

Now, you may have noticed something…the title on the layout says Daily Burn 356, not Daily Burn 365. Well, I flubbed and messed up the title! And I didn’t notice my error until AFTER I finished filming the process video for this layout.

Good grief!

I guess this layout will say 356 forever because I’m too lazy to change it! LOL!

I could use Un-Do Adhesive Remover to fix the title. But…I think the error gives this layout a little charm, don’t you think? 😀

Be sure to visit the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel to see this layout come together. Also, if you are a Victoria Marie Patron, you get exclusive access to the Daily Burn 365 Bonus Video, now available on the Victoria Marie Patreon site. In this video, I deep dive into the creative process behind this project.

Scrapbook Process Video | Using a Simple Silhouette Cut File!

Hello friends! Today on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel, I am sharing a 12 x 12 layout featuring an electronic cut file called “I Love Your Smile” by Lori Whitlock for Silhouette. I love using cut files on a scrapbook project and this design was the perfect choice for this layout.

Recently, my daughter got her very first set of braces to correct an overbite. Getting braces almost seems like a rite of passage for some kiddos. She was nervous at first (and so was I), but she handled it like a champ and of course, I had to scrapbook the adventure!

To see this layout come together, click on the video below!

Products Used: January 2021 Hip Kit Club Scrapbook Kit and Scrapbook Embellishment Add-On, “I Love Your Smile” by Lori Whitlock for Silhouette, PicFrame Photo Collage App (iOS and Android).

I love the floral cluster that frames the bottom of the title! (Victoria Marie Designs 2021)

Scrapbook Process Video | Favorite Selfie using the March 2020 Hip Kit Club Scrapbooking Kit!

Hey Scrap Bosses!

Do you have a tween or teen in your life that loves to take selfies? I sure do! My camera roll is filled with selfies of my daughter and of course…I have to scrapbook them!

As my daughter gets older, she is becoming less interested in me taking her photo, and more interested in taking a gajillion selfies on my iPhone! Over the past couple of years, I’ve taken the opportunity to scrapbook some of her selfie photos. These photos will later serve as a photographic representation of her growth and development as well as her personality.

What a great thing to document!

To see this layout come together, click on the following video, now available on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel! Photos of this project along with a list of available products used is provided below.

The mix of black and white with pops of color is a fantastic design technique!

Want to use multiple photos without creating a two page spread? Considering using a photo editing app or website like Pic Frame or Pic Monkey to make multiphoto collages!

Layer clusters of embellishments around your title for added interest.

I love the bold and colorful style of this layout…so much fun! I hope you were inspired to make something awesome today! Thanks so much for stopping by!
