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!
