A Day in the Life
The main reason we scrapbook is to capture those individual moments in time and keep them forever. Capture a moment in time in a scrapbook page, learn heat embossing with Kelly Purkey, and make a project life double page spread featuring a week in the life of Ali Edwards.  A mix of ideas, supplies and designs - all in one Scrapbook Soup!


Cards for Everyday Occasions
Every occasion no matter how big or small deserves a card – and today we’ve got designs for everyday occasions. Today’s soup includes lacy  pop up cards with a graphic design, some tasty treat cards featuring a lemonade stand with Sara Naumann, and translating a layout into a card with Nancy Nally. Lots of cards and ingredients in one Scrapbook Soup.


Point of View
Scrapbooking for your life means capturing events and moments that are all about you.  It’s creating projects with a very personal point of view.  Our show includes: “Who I am becoming”, a personal page reflecting today, a vintage collage layout using paints to add ephemera with Paula Nelson-Hart, and a tribute to “who you are” with Kim Hupke; projects about us all on today’s Scrapbook Soup.


3D Projects
Today’s menu features useful 3D scrapbook projects. We make pencils with an artful touch, a scrapbook grid layout to celebrate daily life with Ali Edwards, and a scrapbook inspired tote using kaleidoscopes with Joe Rotella. Stir them all together for one fabulous Scrapbook Soup.


Soup would be pretty boring if it was just broth.  Scrapbook pages might also suffer the same fate without some interesting add-ons to rev them up.  Explore beyond the norm with media mixage with Stacey Caron, add bezels, ribbon and buttons to create texture and dimension.  Make a die cut frame with Jenny Barnett Rohrs and use up scraps of patterned paper in a grid design with Ronda Palazzari. Today’s Scrapbook Soup is stocked with new ingredients.


Meeting of Art and Craft
Join us as we mix art, craft and scrapbook for a delicious result. Scrapbook meets art and craft as we write on gesso, learn a technique for making decorative tissue tape with Sara Naumann, and embellish our way to a great frame using a hoop with Vicki O’Dell.


It’s All in the Details
It’s the little things that count – from the tiniest embellishment to the handwritten letter - it’s all in the details today on Scrapbook Soup.  Create simple cut out graphic cards, learn about packing tape photo transfer with Sara Naumann, and   backgrounds almost as pretty as the picture in a prom layout with Stacey Caron– today on Scrapbook Soup.


Different Materials
New materials are the spice to your scrapbook soup.  Every dish needs a little dash of pepper to add some flavor. It’s
the same with scrapbooking - bland is not very interesting.  Fill in the spaces of your letters with paper on the “attitudes in generosity” page, build on a core to add dimension with Stacey Caron for a cherished layout, and projects  featuring paper, acetate and glass from Sara Naumann; a spicy mix today on Scrapbook Soup.


Keeping Up
Make technology your friend. It’s hard to keep up with each and every new trend but you can find your favorites and use them to your advantage.  We begin with an awesome page, then it’s a project life page with Nancy Nally using  instagram photos, and finally a family heirloom with modern techniques but historic info from Paula Nelson-Hart. Great for young family members to get to know their heritage and for older family members to remember and reflect.  


Paint Your Way
Raid your art box for paint and gesso as we paint our way to fantastic layouts. Create Stencils with Jenny Barnett Rohrs,  a layout from Ronda  Palazzari with a technique for changing patterned paper into unique embellishments with gesso, and watercolors, and the fourth level (that’s more than the third!) of dimension from Kim Hupke on a page entitled “my girl”.


Scrapbooking can get very regimented – with the right way to use a product or the correct way to lay out a page. Today we’re encouraging a more casual approach – one that fits your life style and design aesthetics. Take a casual approach  to your scrapbooking with two “hello” themed pages, scrapbook sketches  from Kelly Purkey, and five ways to use lattice designs from Sara Naumann.


Mini Books
Good things come in small packages. Create a mini book from a 3D kaleidoscope with Joe Rotella, a mini journal with Jenny Barnett Rohrs, and 3D sculptured surface for your journal with Kim Hupke. All today on Scrapbook Soup.



Alphabet Soup
It’s always fun to test out new techniques possibly using some of your favorite supplies in a new way. Today’s menu features alphabet soup. Make a best friend’s page featuring watercolors. Use glue as paint to create a unique resist  and stencil and an organizer from Vicki O’Dell that reflects your scrapbook style.
