New, Inspiring Scrapbooking Site!

Just wanted to spread the word about a cool new site for scrapbookers: Scrap & Mac! I love the bright, clean look to this site by Ruthie, and I love that she includes all types of scrapbooking on her site too; paper, digital and hybrid :)! The site includes featured designer spotlights, which are a great way to learn more about other scrapbookers. Even though it’s a brand new site, she has already featured Ali Edwards, Shabby Miss Jenn, Noell Hyman and even little ol’ me (although I hardly feel worthy being featured next to those superstar scrappers)!!! Oh, and you may have guessed it by the title, but the site is especially catered toward Mac users (so if you have Mac questions, go to Ruthie – I’m clueless in that area)!

If you want to see the designer spotlight about me, click here. There is even a slide show that you can add images to that are inspired by my work. So all you ladies who have sent me links to pages you’ve made with my templates and freebies, etc. should add them to the slide show for everyone to admire :). And if you do, please let me know :)!

Looking for Scrapbooking Tutorials?

I have had this post-it note on my desk for ages with a list of some great blogs with scrapbooking tutorials – it’s about time I share it! Here they are in no particular order (and please, if you know of some more great sources, leave a comment to let us know)!!

Misty Cato – Here is a great selection of digital scrapbooking tutorials using Photoshop – I’ve learned a lot from her blog.

Emily Giovanni – Lots of cool tutorials for scrapbooking, altered items, and even some digi scrapping. Tons of beautiful cards too – this gal has a lot of talent!

Everyday Digital Scrapbooking – TONS of tutorials, including an awesome Hybrid scrapbooking section :).

Leah Fung’s Video Blogging - Check out Leah Fung’s blog to see vblog sessions created by Leah and some of my other favorite designers who were on Scrapbook Lifestyle. These ideas are perfect for paper or hybrid projects.

Hummie’s World – Digital scrapbooking tutorials for Photoshop Elements (but they can be adapted for other programs). Hummie seems like such a sweetie too!

Also, if you like to hunt for digital scrapbooking freebies, you will love these blogs:

Ikea Goddess – I knew about Angie’s freebies blog even before I started working with her at Weeds and Wildflowers, it is the go-to site for finding tons of goodies!

Happy Scrap Girl – Another great freebie source, and she also links to other goodies sometimes, like tutorials :).

Announcing Prima Hybrid!!!!

I’m so EXCITED! Today’s the day I can finally share the big news I have been bursting at the seams with for over a month! I have joined the creative team for an awesome new site: Prima Hybrid!!! The shoppe will open January 16th at 6am EST!

Traditional paper scrapbookers have seen Prima’s gorgeous flowers and other delightful scrapbooking supplies and digital scrapbookers know about the fabulous digital designs of Gina Miller, Weeds and Wildflowers Designs, Meredith Fenwick, Iron Orchid Designs (IOD), Carrie Stephens, Corinna Nielson, Dianne Rigdon, Nancy Kubo, Trish Jones, Kim Christensen, Vera Lim and Doris Castle. Well this innovative new site combines ALL of these wonderful scrapbooking designs into one fantastic store with the goal of mixing them together to create beautiful HYBRID projects! The store is set up so that you can purchase digital OR physical supplies that coordinate perfectly together.

Cool features of PrimaHybrid.com

Free Weekly Newsletter: This will be such an awesome resource filled with tips & tricks, trends and step-by-step tutorials about the digital AND physical aspects of hybrid scrapbooking. There will also be free templates offered from time to time!

Gallery (NOW OPEN): Share photos of your projects or be inspired by the creations of others.

Forum (NOW OPEN): This is the place to ask questions or discuss ideas, techniques or products. Or just chit-chat with other scrappers :)! 

Sooooo… do you want to see some of the Prima Hybrid projects I’ve been working on?

I plan to share more details with you about each of the projects in future posts. Also, all of the Prima Hybrid Flower Girls (creative team members) are required to write one tutorial each month, and these will be shared in the free newsletter, so you will want to sign up for that! I am not allowed to show you the projects I have made for the newsletters until they have been published, but I CAN show you some sneak peeks, so look for those in the future too :).

I can’t tell you how unbelievably happy this new adventure has made me – I am enjoying working with my hands, and making lovely gifts, and I can’t believe I have finally begun my wedding scrapbook too! I guess the bunches of beautiful Prima flowers I have in my scrap room now were just the push I needed to get started :)!
