NEW Scrapbook Process Video – Let’s Make a Layout! Cheers Year 41!

Happy Friday! Let’s kickoff the weekend with a fun scrapbook process video, now available on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel!

Today, I am making my annual birthday layout called Cheers! Year 41, using goodies from the January 2022 Hip Kit Club Scrapbook Kit and Embellishment Kit. This 12 x 12 inch layout features a photo collage, simple embellishing, and a bit of hand stitching.

Every year, I create a scrapbook page to celebrate my birthday. In March of this year, I celebrated my 41st trip around the sun! I love celebrating my birthday and documenting how much I have changed, my current interests, and my hopes for the future.

To see this layout come together, check out the following process video!

This project was so much fun to make! The photos take center stage while the pattern paper and embellishments complete the overlook of this design.

This layout features a layered photo collage. Each photo was resized to 3×3 inches and printed with a white border. TIP: Reducing the size of your photos makes it easier to create a single page multi-photo layout.

To flank the photos, I created small clusters of layered embellishments that feature floral die cuts, wood veneer elements, and tiny chipboard flowers. The title was created using a combination of a word die cut (Cheers!) and chipboard letters from the January 2022 Hip Kit Club Kit. I love coordinating die cuts with letter stickers to create unique title designs!

This layout also features hand stitching! I paired two colors of DMC embroidery floss (#165 and #162) to create a layered stitched look. It’s hard to see the delineation on video and in the photo. But, in-person, this technique offers a really cool effect!

I hope you are inspired to create a layout to celebrate a special occasion in your life! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Product Review! Tres Jolie Kit Club and Chipboard! Support Small Business!

If you are in the market for shabby chic and elegant scrapbooking and mixed media kits, look no further! I am so excited to introduce you to Tres Jolie Kit Club and Chipboard! Today, on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel, I’m doing a full review and unboxing of the Tres Jolie April 2022 Scrapbooking Kit and I will use this stunning kit to make a 12 x 12 shabby chic mixed media scrapbook layout!

Tres Jolie Kit and Chipboard

Meet the Owner!

Kimberly Heard, owner of Tres Jolie Kit Club and Chipboard, was inspired to scrapbook in 2001 after the death of her mother. According to Kimberly, she would spend countless hours going through photos and creating scrapbook layouts. This activity turned out to be therapeutic for her and she realized that she had a real love for scrapbooking. As her skills evolved, she developed a love for products that spoke to her shabby chic, romantic, elegant style. This led her to open Tres Jolie Kit Club and Chipboard!

I had the pleasure of meeting Kimberly at the 2022 Creativation Trade Show where we talked about her kits and how she found if difficult to find kit clubs that catered to her style of crafting. Now, she is filling a hole in the market with the Tres Jolie Kit Club!

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!

To see this project come together, head on over to the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel. And if you are a Victoria Marie Patreon, be sure to check out the Bonus Content for this video, now available on the Victoria Marie Patreon site!
