BIG news at Scrapaholics

I have been working on a secret project with someone special for almost a year now. You may have heard of her… I am thrilled to announce that Stacy Julian‘s new line of digital templates are now available exclusively at Scrapaholics. You already know that I am a huge Library of Memories enthusiast. I have blogged about it many, many times now. I have an entire store dedicated to it. I’m a super fan and I am totally OK with that. The more the merrier I say. You can imagine my surprise when last spring, out of the blue, Stacy called…

Living with Your Photos  The Select Few

Living with Your Photos The Select Few

A few months ago I read a fantastic blog post by Stacy Julian about photo anxiety, here is an excerpt: “We tend to assign an immense amount of value to photos because in the past, they have been rare and therefore extremely valuable. In other words, 12,000 photos are not as valuable as twelve. Stop and think about that for a minute. If you had only twelve photos from your childhood, they would automatically (regardless of their quality) be valuable–they are all you have. 12,000 photos are not individually valuable, until you assign value to a few of them.” Stacy’s blog post really struck a…

Living with Your Photos… Digitally!

Yesterday I mentioned that I only print photos that are included in my scrapbook layouts. I am fairly certain that I heard a collective horrified gasp of readers when they finished that sentence. LOL! Let me assure you, my photos are not living a sad, neglected existence on my hard drive… they are one finger swipe away. Actually, a good portion of them are in my back pocket 24/7. Well, 16/7… I don't sleep with my photos. I'm not a complete weirdo. Let's rewind a few years, shall we? In fact, let's rewind to 1997, my freshman year of college….

Living with Your Photos – Backing Up

Living with Your Photos – Backing Up

Pictures are meant to be enjoyed, not sit unloved and neglected on our computers or stuck in our camera. This blog series is all about living with your photos. Living with your memories. Remember the moments you so lovingly captured of your family. It is impossible to live with your photos if your photos are gone, which is why I am going to start this series with the most important topic: Backing up your photos. When was the last time you backed up your photos? Yesterday? Last week? Last month? Three months ago? I know it is easy to get…

Living with Your Albums The Toddler Edition

Creating a scrapbook page is so much fun. I love the entire process: deciding on a photo or photos, choosing a story to share, looking through my supplies to find just the right paper and embellishments… I create layouts to share with my family. My girls are welcome to go into the library at any time and spread our albums out all over the floor. The album spines are another story. I'll admit it. I like my albums looking pretty.  Enter Eden. You may have seen photos of my albums. They looked like this until Eden started crawling and walking….
