Most Popular Scrapbooking Video Tutorial
Video Tutorial – Set Yourself Up for Unique Mini-Books – Paperclipping 198
First off, we’re sharing our most popular member video of 2012 here for free!
This is the video that the Paperclipping Members have watched the most. Keep in mind, the newest videos are at a disadvantage in this contest because there hasn’t been as much time to watch them (this isn’t a scientifically sound contest!).
Click the player above to watch.
In this episode I share some specific things you can do to set yourself up for making creative unique mini-books. I share…
- Something that will help you to free your mind from the overly rigid way of thinking about pages and covers.
- The kinds of everyday life items I keep for future minibook pages and covers that will be totally unique, including all of thosee items that I have in my stash right now.
- Some of the characteristics I look for in an item that suggests to me it will be a good possibility as a page or cover.
- How I store all these random items that will eventually become parts of my minibooks.
- How to turn your store-bought mini-books into something entirely original.
- Two actual examples of turning an every day item into a mini-book page. You’ll see how I transform two non-scrapbooking items into pages for my family’s Hawaii mini album.
2nd Place Video
And I must say I’m proud of the 2nd Place video, too – Coordinate Photos with Ephemera and Stories – Paperclipping 196. It’s a new concept I devised that has revolutionized my entire system for scrapbooking. Now I never lose track of what stories have what photos and which ephemera. It’s a system for where I go when to choose what I’ll scrapbook, whenever I want to sit down to play.
You can see the blog post for that video episode here, or if you’re a member you can watch it in the Member’s Area.
Most Popular Scrapbooking Blog Posts
I decided to share both the 1st and 2nd place blog posts because the first is a Project Life page. Not all of you are into project life, so fortunately, the 2nd place page is a standard layout post with ten different page examples.

Coolest Contribution of Paperclipping Members
Okay, this isn’t part of the popularity contest, but I think it’s really great. A year ago Paperclipping started giving some of the income from the Paperclipping Membership to women in the Philippines who are struggling to run a business and feed their families. We do this through an amazing non-profit organization called, Kiva.
Simplicia is a recent recipient of one of our loans. She has a vegetable farm and needs help purchasing fertilizer and seedlings. Much appreciation to our Paperclipping Members whose membership makes these contributions possible!
