Scrapbook Memories Series 1500

Keeping up with Current Trends


Green Scrapbooking
Lisa Singer joins us for a perfect teen project – mixed media photo frames hung from a recycled hanger. Then, meet Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, she’s recycling a tyvek envelope to create a card featuring a butterfly. Next, Linda Sattgast creates sepia toned photos – it’s a great way to reuse an existing photo for a new project. Last up, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer is back with the first of 5 special lessons for this season – Julie is presenting design principles for scrapbooking and just about any craft.  The first is “contrast”.


Specialty Albums
Our first guest is Vicki Gurney.  We’re going to learn how to make our own custom books and albums with a special tool. Then, its time for Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and how to make your own custom buttons for a personalized layout. Last up, meet Patti Wilkinson and create a personal journal built from paper strips for a super fast technique.

Home Dec
First up, decorate your home with a glitter shadow box frame to highlight your favorite pictures. Then, meet Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero for a very unique home décor project using the computer. We’re making a candle holder from photos. Last up, Stacey Caron features embossed metal on a wood frame- perfect for any décor.

Organize and Save Time
Lisa Singer decorates acrylic photo frames with custom glitter embellishments for a quick and easy project. Then, it’s design lesson #2 from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer, and all about the concept of “emphasis”. Just how do you decide what’s most important on your project? Last up, Vicki Gurney returns to decorate album covers with unique embellishments.


History of Scrapbooking
Barbara Kotsos is first with information on web sites that feature family history. Next, it’s time to create some current history with Helen Chu.  She’s adding dimension and pizzazz with overlays, die cuts, and alphabets. Then Julie Fei-Fan Balzer returns with a lesson on transferring photos to canvas. Finally, Kristy Day creates a vintage recipe book featuring her grandmothers writing.


Scrapbooking with Kids
Julie Stephani plans the perfect kid’s party including decorations, banners, favors and more. Then Julie Fei-Fan Balzer has a project called inchies. These are mini designs for cards, pages, and embellishments.  Last up, create ornaments; this is a perfect family project.


Mixed Media
First, is a great mixed media book with a variety of materials. Then, Julie Fei-Fan Balzer returns with a metal technique including embossing plus much more. Last up, Stacey Caron is back with the perfect wedding ensemble and very subtle use of new materials.


What better way to create a keepsake then by adding a personal message or recording a voice or song? We’ll show how to add sound to your pages and albums. Next, Stacy Julian “makes it personal” – good advice for every scrapbooker. Then, Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero is back with a unique card. She takes photos of kids and pets and turns them into a kaleidoscope for 3D flowers. Last up, is a design lesson on “balance” with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer.  What does that term mean for a scrapbooker?


Paints, Dyes, Markers and Inks. 
First, we have a brand new technique to share – screen printing is not new – but we have a brand new way to silk screen with Kristy Day for a unique cropping party. Then, it s a lesson in color printing with Linda Sattgast and making photos monochromatic. Next, it’s design principle #4 with Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and the concept of “unity”. Last up, is a fun 3D flower pot featuring chip board flowers.


Gifts and Cards
First, we have a great gift for your favorite scrapbooker – it’s the gift of memories. Then Julie Fei-Fan Balzer has a unique and very quick gift with a binder clip photo holder. Last up it’s a party with Patti Wilkinson. What are gifts without a party - or maybe that’s a party without gifts? We have banners, bows, and favors all from paper strips and the technique is adaptable to any occasion.


Kristy Day is back with bridal shower invitations created with a unique cutting system. Then Julie Fei-Fan Balzer has design principles 5 and 6, the last of our series, featuring “pattern” and “rhythm”, and as a bonus “movement”. Last up, it’s all about texture as we cut and texturize in one step.


New Trends
First, we have a new way to look at both color and paper with color core paper – you can use it in many different ways, like sanding, tearing, and embossing. Our special guest is Anthony Grinnell. Then we feature Barbara Kotsos and one of our most requested digital concepts – the Andy Warhol effect.  Then it’s a very interesting take on color using the computer again, as Jeanie Sumrall-Ajero uses just one photo to make both the background and the embellishment but they look totally different. Last up, Julie reintroduces decoupage in a new way featuring a kaleidoscope of color.



Stickers and Stamps
Die cuts and stamps go hand in hand especially when they coordinate with each other.  Then, it’s Julie Fei-Fan Balzer and how to make you own personal background.  Last, meet Suzy West with a unique and fanciful clear mini book.
