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!

If you are not a patron, what are you waiting for?! Get access to exclusive behind the scenes video content, process videos, exclusive scrapbook sketches, monthly creative workshops and more! Click HERE to learn more and to join! Memberships start at $5.00 USD per month!

Happy National (International) Scrapbook Day! I hope you are enjoying a full weekend of fun, relaxation, and tons of creating!

Getting Ready for International Scrapbook Day and the iNSD 2021 Online Virtual Crop! Step One: Plan Your Projects!

Hello friends! Did you know that International Scrapbook Day 2021 (iNSD) is coming this weekend? If you are like me, then you are probably getting ready for an awesome weekend of scrapbooking, relaxing, and hanging out with your fellow scrappy friends!

To maximize my creative time during iNSD weekend, I like to prepare my scrapbook materials and projects in advance! This way, I can focus on making layouts and having fun.

Now, you may be wondering, “Victoria, what is your process for preparing for iNSD?”

I am so glad that you asked! I will be sharing my process all week long, starting with how to plan your scrapbook projects in preparation for iNSD weekend.

But first…

If you are looking for a fun place to hang, be sure to check out the iNSD 2021 Online Virtual Crop, hosted on the Victoria Marie Mighty Network! This event will start on Friday, April 30th – Sunday, May 2nd!

Come join us for a weekend of fun scrapbooking challenges, prizes, giveaways, LIVE Zoom Scrap and Chats and more! For more information and to register, click HERE!

iNSD Prep Tip #1: Planning Your Projects

The first step of the iNSD prep process is to plan your projects in advance. This step doesn’t have to be super involved. Simply make a list of the projects you want to work on and go from there. TIP: Be realistic about the number of projects you can actually work on during a short period of time. Overloading your project list could cause undo stress and overwhelm.

Next, be sure to note the photos you will need to print for your projects and any potential supplies and materials that you might want to use. Also jot down any design ideas or scrapbook techniques you might want to try (i.e. mixed media, layering), or tools that you want to experiment with during iNSD weekend. This step in the planning process allows you to get your ideas and plans on paper as you prepare for a weekend of scrapbooking.

If you are participating in the iNSD 2021 Online Virtual Crop with the Victoria Marie Designs community, don’t forget to review the crop Challenge Descriptions in advance of the event to plan your projects accordingly. All iNSD 2021 Online Virtual Crop registered participants get instant access to the crop Challenge Descriptions! Woo hoo!

Let’s Go!

Preparing for iNSD weekend in advance will save you so much time and hassle! So, let’s get started! Take a moment to make a list of the projects you want to work on this weekend. Your future self will thank you!

Up Next…

Tomorrow, I will share the next step in my iNSD prep process, Printing Photos and Preparing Supplies. Stay tuned for more!
