LOVE = Paperclipping.com

Recently I've been super inspired by Noell Hyman on Paperclipping.com. Since I've become a member and watched all the videos I've really been scrapbooking often. For the last 12 yrs or so I would only scrapbook when I had an album or card to make for a specific person and occasion (i.e. an Alaska album for my MIL for Mother's Day). Lately, I find myself thinking of possible layouts ALL the time. The paperclipping tutorials really give me a base for my scrapbook page and embellishments. Instead of me thinking, "well, I have all the papers and embellishments that I love but I'm overwhelmed thinking how I put them all together", now I just want to get in to all my stuff and just put it together. I also have reasons for why embellishments look good in certain places and why it just makes sense. It gives me confidence to actually put pages together! Paperclipping live is great too, since you get to see her use products and learn how to use them. I never thought I needed distress inks like the ones Tim Holtz has since I would use my favorite little brown stamp pad to put distress edges on any of my papers.  But seeing the distress inks in action when Noell uses them, made me go get some. They are so fun to use! Wow, you'd think I was getting paid to say all this but I'm not...I just LOVE paperclipping.com! :)

P.S. don't even get me started on The Paperclipping Roundtable - their weekly podcast. LOVE IT too!
