This week we’re talking about men who scrapbook…
Years ago I began wondering how engaging a scrapbook would be if the combined layouts told one big overall story — with a plot and a resolution.
I’ve played around with that idea in different ways. Not all scrapbooks can easily translate into a sweeping story, but many of our themed albums can be. My best story album is almost complete and I love the story that it tells. I think you will, too!
I share it in a video and show how you can turn your own album, especially a themed album, into a story. It’s okay if you’ve already been working on your album. I was more than half done with mine when I changed to the story approach with this album.
You must be a member to watch the video. Members can find it on iTunes and in the Member’s Area.
The newest episode of Paperclipping focuses on two different topics…
1) Making layouts look consistent in a themed album.
- Adjusting older layouts so they match the album.
- Making new layouts match the album without compromising how you want to scrapbook right now.
2) Layout ideas for lots of photos.
- An eight-photo layout idea.
- Two four-photo layout ideas.
Two of the pages we work on in this episode are 2-page layouts.
Plus, the themed album I share is a great idea for scrapbooking something you do a lot and have way too many pictures of. For example, if you make lots and lots of visits to Grandma’s and it’s a bit overwhelming, you might want to do what I did. You’ll get a good look at it in the video.
This video tutorial is for our Paperclipping Members. Members can see it in the Member’s Area and on iTunes.

The signs have been there for a while now. I had my hopes that American Crafts would buy Two Peas, but it turns out AC was busy purchasing We R Memory Keepers.
We will be talking about both of these pieces of major scrapbooking industry news on the Paperclipping Roundtable next week (we’re on vacation this week, so there will be no show).
In the meantime, let’s have a conversation. What are your thoughts?
Leave a comment and let us know.
Do you have a lot of technique and color media products that don’t get enough use?
If so, you might ask yourself why you would buy another one. Here’s why…
Because there’s one other multi-media product that can help you use just about all of your other ones.
Once you try Embossing Paste, you’ll want to see what you can do when you combine it with all your other supplies.
I demonstrated some of those possibilities in a video, and also showed how you can use it your scrapbooking. Embossing Paste is so much fun to use and I love the added dimension on my pages! If you’re a member you can watch this video tutorial now. You’ll find it in the Member’s Area and on iTunes.
