Scrappy Journey: Solo Scrapbooking

Hello scrappers!  Sorry this is going up a day late!  I was having computer (cough*laziness*cough) issues.  I am back with another post for the Scrappy Journey series.  Today I am going to talk about being a solo scrapbooker.

When I started scrapbooking in 2009, it was a hobby to help fill my time.  It is something that I was super excited about.  But I had no real life friends to share it with.  This was rough because I really wanted to talk about it.... all of the time.

In lieu of scrappy friends, I used magazines and books to learn more.  There were no scrapbook stores near me.  So I struggled to develop my style based off the brief articles in the magazines and the out-dated ideas in the books.  My source of scrapbooking supplies was the local Walmart.  I really felt lonely.  That's when I discovered the enormous online community.

Paper Issues Layout Share and Process Video

Hello my scrappy people!  I have a few layouts today that were created for Paper Issues Facebook challenges.  One is for February and one is for March.  I've decided to combine the layouts I create for Paper Issues into one post to make it easier on me.

This first layout was created for the February Cut It Up challenge.  I do not own a die cutting machine (boohoo).  So I have begun to find ways to use cut files.  For this month, I used tracing paper and traced the hearts onto a piece of white cardstock.  I prepped the white cardstock with some gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine and some Frozen Lake Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.  I then pierced the paper around each of the hearts and hand-stitched most in white thread and a few in gold.  Here is the layout:

Look At That Hat Process Video / Stuck Sketches

Hello Everyone!!  I'm excited to be back with another layout and process video.  I have decided to narrow down the sketches I use.  At one point I was using sketches from 5-6 different blogs and Facebook groups.  This was time consuming and frustrating trying to keep up.  So I have narrowed it down to three; Stuck?! Sketches, Creative Scrappers, and Paper Issues.  Now I'm not saying I won't ever use any other blogs but for the most part I'm sticking with these three.

Today, I have a layout for the March 1st sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.  Laura Whitaker really knows how to put a sketch together!  I love the use of multiple photos, the grid design, and even the circles (bane of my scrappy existence).  Here is the sketch:
