Hey Crafty Friends! This week another episode of Scrapbook Soup in which I appeared has gone live online. This will be available to view in it’s entirety from October 24- 31, 2014. It says that I’m there to talk about technology, but we actually talk about mixed media and the growth process of creativity!! Take a look here, just click the link! http://www.scrapbookmemoriestv.com/ And the projects by Joe Rotella and Kazan Clark are wonderful. Enjoy!
Hey Crafty Friends! This week you can watch one of the segments I taped this May, LIVE on ScrapbookSoupTV.com! You can see my project in this show: 403 Stencils This show offers lots of new tips and techniques using stencils. Create your own stencil and learn about masking with Jenny Barnett Rohrs. A short interview features Stacy Julian as she shares her system of “get it done fast”. Then, Julie demonstrates a layering technique using new stencil designs. Last, Julie […]
On Friday, September 5th Scrapbook Soup show 310 will be airing on the Scrapbook Soup web site home page beginning at Noon EST today! I will be featured in the first segment showing how to make your project the “Hello Card”. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out! We’ll make a nifty resist using Mod Podge and stencils, of all things! I love projects where you focus on the technique and have fun “playing-” and I think you will too! If you check out the Scrapbook […]
Earlier this spring I was invited to film some segments for the nationally-televised Scrapbook Soup tv program, which airs on PBS. In addition to the two tutorials I filmed (including the Two-Fer Inlaid Diecut Cards and Making Custom Stencils and Masks) I also was interviewed by the host, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. This was an unscripted, unrehearsed interview- and I was sorta surprised at some of the answers that popped out of my mouth! Take a look: That last answer was […]
Do you have a purse littered with stubs and bits that you mean to scrapbook one day? Do you have pics on your phone or photo-sharing stream (such as Instagram)? Lastly, do you have a stack of paper that you really don’t care for anymore? Well, you can make this Instagram-friendly “Smoosh” (Smash-style) book in an afternoon and get your memories out of the digital world and into your hands. And it’s a stash-buster, too! You’ll need: 12 X 12 […]
Earlier this spring I had the wonderful opportunity to be a guest on Scrapbook Soup and appear in a segment on crafting tools that help you make crafting easier as you age if you have vision, hand, or posture problems. I personally know a lot of crafters UNDER 40 that have conditions such as RA, Lupus, fibromyalgia, and carpal tunnel– so using adaptive crafting tools isn’t just for the senior citizen crowd. I wrote this article to accompany the segment- […]
Id barely recovered from last week’s trip to Washington, DC when I got a fabulous call to come tape a segment for the PBS show, Scrapbook Soup. I’d chatted with the producer months before….but like so many things, it was kind of in a holding pattern and nothing was set. So I scrambled to get some product together for a quick segment on adaptive tools for the scrapbooker. I’ll have more on the trip this week, but I did get […]
I find it amusing and beyond coincidence that the majority of PBS craft shows are shot on the East side of Cleveland. Every week, my favorite crafty people fly in, shoot their segments, and fly away back to their busy lives. Imagine how thrilled I was when one of my new crafty friends, Julie McGuffee, rang me up to let me know she was in town taping her new show, Scrapbook Soup, and I was invited to stop by and […]
