NEW! Scrapbook Process and Scrappy Chat To-Go Video on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel!

Hey Scrap Bosses! I am back with 2 new videos on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel! Woo hoo!!!

It’s been several weeks since I have posted new content to my channel. I took an unintentional break to focus on a major project for Victoria Marie Designs. I am finally able to come up for air.

Also, I’ve lost a bit of my creative mojo recently and felt uninspired to make creative projects. I am working through this very frustrating phase one day at a time. Thanks so much for your patience during this unexpected “silent period”.

To hear more about this and more, check out my latest Scrappy Chat To-Go video!

Also on the channel is a brand new scrapbook process video, Homeschool Adventures! To be honest, making this layout reaffirmed why I love scrapbooking so much!

Using items from my stash, I created a classic layout with a muted color palatte to include craft, mint, dark green, yellow, and a hint of blue.

This color combination came together organically and is a refreshing departure from some of the trendy colors that have been featured in a lot of scrapbooking collections recently…hello pink and turquoise!

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

The embellishment clusters on this layout are accented with wood veneer stars that beautifully coordinate with the Neenah Creative Collection Midtone Specialty Paper (background).

Die cuts, labels, and stamping add tons of interest to this project.

I resized the photos to 3×3 using the PicFrame App on my iPhone. I wanted to make sure I had enough room to fit all three photos on this 8.5 x 11 inch spread. Resizing the photos made this easier to achieve.

Thanks for stopping by! Look for more creative content to come on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel and Blog!

Disney Movie Traveler’s Notebook! Documenting Magic Series

Hey friends! I am back with something a little different for my ongoing YouTube series, Documenting Magic! This series is all about Disney themed scrapbooking…because I’m obsessed with all things Disney!

The Disney Company has a full slate of new movies premiering in 2019 and 2020. I love Disney movies (well, movies in general), and decided to create an entire traveler’s notebook centered about Disney movies.

Themed projects are my jam, especially when I need a creative jumpstart or a break from other projects. Also, this gives me an excuse to use more Disney themed scrapbooking products!

For this spread, I used products from the Simple Stories Say Cheese 1-4 Collections as well as the Elle’s Studio Magical Moments Collection. A complete list of products is provided below.

To see this traveler’s notebook in action, click on the following video. In this video I provide a quick walkthrough of my notebook and I complete a quick spread about seeing Avengers Endgame.

Check it out!

Scrapbook Process Video – When a Layout Isn’t Coming Together!

We have all been there…you find yourself working on a layout and for some reason, the design isn’t coming together. After hours (maybe days) of moving elements around, taking things on and off your layout, frustration sets in. You put the layout aside and come back to it later. This time, you have a clear vision of the design you want and BAM…the layout magically comes together!

Le sigh…

Well, after days of laboring over a difficult scrapbook design, I found relief in editing my original design and staying true to what I love: simple, clean, and layered pages. Sometimes we have to go through the “design storm” in order to find peace with the projects we create.

Check out my latest video, Cool in the Pool, now available on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel! In this video, I explain my initial process and how I ultimately created a layout that spoke to my design aesthetic.

For this layout, I am using a free cut file from The Cut Shoppe and tons of goodies from my summer scrapbook kit, a collection of elements and papers I pulled together from my stash. Enjoy!
