Episode 134: The Newbie Conundrum


This week, we have a discussion with listeners Tiffany Brand and Adrienne Hogan in response to a thread posted in our community in follow up to last week's show about "The New Rules of Scrapbooking." We discuss a wide variety of topics including how much more difficult it is now for new people to learn about scrapbooking vs. the days of home parties, scrapbook stores, multiple magazines and more people participating in the craft. We also discuss bridging the gap between scrapbookers who participate in online communities vs. those who do not. We hope you enjoy this thought provoking episode!

Episode 131: The Death of The Double Pager


This week, our guest, Hannah Lemieux, joins us to discuss why we seldom see double page layouts on design team blogs, social media and other industry inspiration. We know many of you LOVE double page layouts so this show is just for you. We're examining why there is often a disconnect between what we're creating at home and what is offered in the industry as inspiration. We discuss how varying approaches to scrapbooking greatly affect our process and end result (our layouts) and specific ways we can translate the inspiration currently offered into something we can use.
