Introducing The New Tim Holtz Distress Ink Color – Prize Ribbon!

Hello friends! Today, Tim Holtz (Ranger) released a new Distress Ink Color, Prize Ribbon! This new color is the perfect addition to your Distress Ink collection.

Scrapbook.com sent me the Prize Ribbon Distress collection to share with all of you and let me just say…it’s amazing! Prize Ribbon is available as a Distress Ink, Distress Oxide, Distress Paint, Distress Embossing Glaze, and as a Distress and Oxide Spray.

To shop the complete collection, click HERE!

And of course I had to make a few projects using this stunning release…check it out!

Created by Victoria Marie Designs 2021

First up, I created a subtle background using the Tim Holtz Honeycomb Stencil and the Blue Ribbon Distress Ink. This particular shade of Distress Ink coordinates well with yellow, black, and white.

And of course I had to make a card using the Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Ink along with the Tim Holtz Die Cut Ephemera. For this project, I added the Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Ink to a honeycomb embossing folder to create this really cool design. I will be sharing this technique in an upcoming video on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel so stay tuned!

And for my last project, I made a fun slimline card featuring the Prize Ribbon Distress Ink, applied with a blending tool over a Tim Holtz stencil to create an ombre effect. To complete the card, I adhered floral die cuts from a Tim Holtz ephemera pack.

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).

New Scrapbook Process Video – Merry Everything!

Merry Christmas Scrap Bosses!

I hope you are having a fabulous holiday! Today, I am sharing a holiday themed layout on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel called Merry Everything, using the November Hip Kit Club scrapbooking kit and scrapbooking kit add-on (sold out).

Every year during the holidays, my family and I enjoy what we like to call fancy hot cocoa. Our fancy cocoa always includes whipped cream, sprinkles, marshmallows, and candy canes. I love setting up our hot cocoa station complete with all of our favorite fixings. It’s our yearly winter tradition that we look forward to!

See this layout come together on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel. Photos of this project are provided below.

The photos in this layout were taken almost five years ago when my daughter was in kindergarten. After a particularly long day of work and school, we stopped at Target to buy fancy hot cocoa fixings. I remember how excited she was to find marshmallows that were shaped like tiny Christmas trees!

I love the layered look of the page! All of the products used are exclusive from the Hip Kit Club. Unfortunately, this particular kit is sold out. But, be sure to stop by the Hip Kit Club Shop to see their latest kits!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season! Look for more scrapbook inspiration to come!

Using New Pocket Cards by Scrapbook.com on a 12×12 Layout!

Did you know that Scrapbook.com has a new line a pocket cards? In my latest process video on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel, I create a collage background using the Everyday Moments Simple Scrapbooking Pocket Cards by Scrapbook.com!

I love pocket scrapbooking, but over the years, I have incorporated pocket cards in a variety of scrapbooking projects – travelers notebooks, mini albums, card projects, and traditional layouts! The Simple Scrapbooking Pocket Cards are stunning and feature modern designs and prints.

I used one 4×6 inch and three 3×4 inch pocket cards to create a collage background on a 12 x 12 inch scrapbook layout. Using items from my stash, I added a title, pattern paper, and embellishments to round out the overall design.

The Simple Scrapbook Pocket Cards come in a pack of 3 x 4 inch and 4 x 6 inch double sided cards. There are plenty of cards for journaling, adding photos, and embellishments. If you like using pocket cards, be sure to check these out!

To see this layout come together, check out the following process video. Links to available products used for this project are posted below!

Did You Catch the Replay? YouTube Livestream Scrapbook Process Video!

The recorded replay of the Victoria Marie YouTube Livestream Scrapbook Process Video (aired 10/19/2020) is available for your viewing pleasure!

During this live session, I created a 12 x 12 scrapbook layout featuring the Tori Kit by Felicity Jane.

Every year, I create a scrapbook layout to celebrate my mom’s birthday. She turned 72 years young this month. Sadly, in the midst of my busy schedule, I totally forgot her birthday! I felt so horrible (still do). But, the day was saved with tons of apologies, hugs and kisses, handmade cards, and dinner at Red Lobster. Mom loved it!

Because this layout has a really large title, I didn’t have much room for journaling. To remedy this, I created hidden journaling, attached on the back of the layout using a handmade pocket. The tab invites the viewer to read the hidden journaling.

Be sure to check out the recorded replay for this project! I will be back LIVE on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel this Friday with another scrapbooking project!

New! Pride Everyday | Scrapbook Process Video

In celebration and in recognition of the LGBTQ community, June was designated as PRIDE Month in 1999, an annual month-long observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements.

A few years ago, I shared on the Victoria Marie YouTube Channel that my wife Aubree (formerly Bryan, my husband), came out as transgender (male to female). In recognition of PRIDE 2020, I want to share a little bit about our journey and how I am documenting this change through words and photos.

To see the process video for this layout, click on the video below!

Aubree and I have been married for almost 12 years. During our marriage, we have weathered many storms. However, her transition has been the biggest test to our marriage thus far. At one point, I wasn’t sure how I was going to document her transition. Initially, I wasn’t in a good emotional state to talk about my feelings…I simply did not have the words.

Overtime, I made a commitment to myself to be as authentic as possible in my storytelling – warts and all. I wanted to find a way to document Aubree’s story, respecting her voice and her experiences, but also documenting my journey as her wife and the experiences of our daughter Corinne.

This layout is the first of many to come as I begin this journey of documenting our story. I hope that our story is accepted with open eyes and hearts. And I hope that you are inspired to document your life as authentically as possible. More to come!

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!
