Two Ways to Use Design in Your Scrapbooking – Paperclipping 246

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

paperclipping 246

How do you use design?

Design has two totally different purposes. If you’ve ever thought about visual triangles, white space, or the rule of thirds, you’re probably familiar with the first and most common purpose — to make your page look good!

But did you know you can also use design to accomplish something else in addition to that? Something totally different?

If you’ve been a Paperclipping Member for a long time you might have a idea of what I’m talking about — or at least a nagging hint that hasn’t quite surfaced as a solid yet.

I decided to make a video that would clearly distinguish these two purposes. On the video I make two different layouts: a 6-photo page and a single-photo page.

1. While making the first layout I explain all the design principles I’m using to accomplish the first purpose of making the page look good.

2. Then I make the second page and focus on that mysterious, less-known second purpose for design.

Bits and Pieces In a Versatile Template

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Need a fresh scrapbooking idea that’s on-trend but also simple and budget-friendly?

I want to share with you one of my favorite videos, which shows the process for some of my favorite layouts.

In the video I share a template for scrapbooking pages with small bits and pieces — whether they’re your leftover scraps or those cute little cut out pieces in your newest patterned papers.

You’ll be able to use this Flexible Template over and over for a totally fresh scrapbook page every time. Just take a look at the layouts below to see what I mean.

Shine On,
Love,-Noell

P.S.> This video is from the Paperclipping Library. Paperclipping Members get two videos every month in addition to more than 200 videos that currently make up the library.

How to Mix Patterns – Paperclipping 209

Thursday, January 24th, 2013

paperclipping 209
Do you end up with many leftovers from your scrapbook kits or from manufactured paper lines?

One of the more valuable skills that comes from having a good design eye is to be able to mix and match patterns from different lines. You can take your products so much further if you create new “lines” or “kits” by mixing and matching what you have.

When you identify which of your different products look great together, it’s possible to actually use up entire lines and kits! ;)

And check out what a different look I was able to get for the two scrapbook pages in the pictures for this post. Two very different looks for two very different stories, even though both layouts began from the same scrapbook line.

Try it today, or this weekend!

Pick a line you love, and then find some leftovers that have lost their luster but that will match some of your new exciting line. Then tell me if you don’t feel renewed excitement in the older products as well!

If you need to expand your skills for mixing patterns, you’ll love the newest video I just put out for Paperclipping Members. Members can find this video in the Member’s Area or on iTunes.

CHA 2012 – Tim Holtz Stamps Plus the Sizzix eClips Electronic Die Cutter? Yes!

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

When Tim Holtz told me he has Sizzix making electronic die cuts for the eClips I almost died. Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but I find it crazy exciting! Not only can you cut around the intricate stamps, but you can cut away insides to either pop out holes or create dimensional layers! You can shadow the stamps, too. We got the folks at Sizzix to demo it for us!

Paperclipping 147 – Fix Your Journaling Disasters

Monday, June 21st, 2010
You need the free Flash Player to view this video.

What do you do when you write your journaling directly onto your background paper and then find it horribly wrong?

I don’t mind crossing out a word or two, but sometimes the “error” is beyond a few misspelled words. In this week’s episode, I share some of my journaled background near-tragedies and fixes!

These aren’t just “passable” fixes. These are fixes that left me even happier with the results than my original plan. I’m excited to share with you not only my techniques, but the design principles that make them work so you can apply them to your own journaling mistakes.

This week’s episode is for members only. You can watch the trailer video if you’re not a member. Please click here to find out how you can become a Paperclipping Member and get access to the archive of over 140 video tutorials.

Need to see some samples first? I have posted several full episodes for free.

Below are the “fixed” layouts I featured in this week’s tutorial…

Journaling to Aiden, age 3, reads:

the story
During one of Blake’s baseball practices an older boy, about 7 years old, challenged you to a race. You agreed and off you went. Of course, we couldn’t expect your little legs to keep up with him and he hit the finish-line with the declaration, “I won!” long before you did.

true confessions
Here I was, your protective mother, irritated that this 7-year-old boy was gloating about beating you, my 3-year-old. But then you reached the finish-line, still at a full run, and with a huge smile on your face. You began yelling, “I won! I won! I won! I won!…!”

Confidence.

the juicy part
That boy tried his best to convince you (and the rest of us!) that he beat you. But he could not overcome your boisterous, “I won!” celebrations. He was frustrated. And I have never stopped smiling about it.

T is for Trinity

Journaling reads:

A conversation with Aiden, age 5…

a: Mom, I want a “T” on my forehead.

(after hearing him mumble, “Trinity . . . Trinity . . .” I made a guess)
m: You want a “T” on your forehead for “Trinity?”

a: Mmm-hmm.

m: T for Trinity? Because you love her?

a: Yep. I love her.
