Technique Tuesday {6/21/2011}

Whoo! I tell ya it has taken longer to upload the video from the camcorder, edit that video down to 15 mins; than it took to complete this weeks Technique Tuesday and that included the nearly 200 pictures used to show you this fantastic technique! In this video, I used one kit from the Simple Stories collection (Destination) and two variety packs (of 10 ct ea) of photo sleeves (page protectors)by We R Memory Keepers.

Here it is summer 2011 and I have not scrapped last year's vacation yet. I did get a digital book done and printed X5 last year as I usually do for the kids but not all the pictures were included so I wanted to do a traditional book for the family. But vacation pictures? There were nearly 500 taken.

Watch this video and see how I scrapped nearly 200 of those pictures in one afternoon!

Then below is a digital 12x12 I created for the cover page because the WRMK packs each came with a full page protector in its variety pack.

Here is a traditional page on the back side using the scraps left over in the kit ...

Another set going in the back, partly because I used those few pictures I had done nothing with yet so I created a pocket to hold a bundle for that last page incase anyone really wanted to see SOME MORE SCENERY :) .

So there ya go! Get into the store and gets your kit and variety packs 20% off through June 27th!! Get those bazzillion pictures you have scrapped quickly. Choose from three kits and about 10 different pocket packets, you choose the combination.

Technique Tuesday {6/7/2011}

BriAnna and I went to the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington this last Saturday! We didn't arrive until 1:30 p.m., so we went through all 6 aisles plus the permiter booths in just 3 hrs. 15 mins. It couldn't have been possible except my youngest was with us playing the part of bag carrier. Big hugs to him!

I was impressed with three different new things I found at GASC, I will share one with you. Kiwi Lane; I bought an assortment of templates to mix and match on my pages; allowing me to layer and add dimension through curved lines. Using the templates organized on my layout and get a great idea what the l/o will look like before any paper is cut.

Here are the templates I bought:

Here is one layout I created using the templates

And a two page layout:

This layout I didn't use the templates but they inspired me to chop up a die cut sheet to use as corner mats to the pictures.

Here is the video posted on their website showing how to use the templates. I was going to start carrying them in the store until I saw you can buy them yourself right from their website. I really feel these templates were a genius idea, creating another style of scrapbooking. Simple, yet playful!
