It’s Q&A month and I’m answering your biggest questions about life, business, and simple scrapbooking.
Why did you switch from digital to paper scrapbooking? How did you navigate the transition?
In late 2010 I started creating papercraft projects for what would become our membership. In many ways I was both experienced at crafting yet a total novice at paper scrapbooking. As I learned about the industry and saw the beautiful products, I was hooked.
While I definitely enjoyed the digital scrapbooking I had been doing for the previous two years, I was craving time away from the computer. I had grown up crafting with my hands and I missed that tactile experience. After just a few layouts it became clear I had found a more natural fit for my own hobby.
As I was learning the ropes, I spent a lot of time studying techniques and trying to understand why I liked certain layouts. It took some time for me to discover the types of supplies that felt most comfortable.
In the beginning I didn’t intend to stop doing digital layouts, but the rise in popularity of Project Life quickly sent me in the direction of all-tangible products. That said, I still incorporate a lot of digital techniques into my projects.
Recently I’ve become more fascinated by the possibilities of hybrid design with a modern look and feel. I love browsing Pinterest for hybrid layout concepts.
