Cluster and Paper Stack Templates

Title

As a customer, I am constantly amazed by the creativity and inventiveness of digital scrapbook designers. There are products available now that I would never have dreamed of when I first started digi scrapping in 2006.

One product that I have been enjoying are the cluster and paper stack templates. For some reason, I’m finding it hard to describe them, but I’ll give it a try: they are layered templates where the designer provides the layers for the cluster or paper stack but it is not a “complete” layout on its own. So, the templates are a good starting point for a layout and allow each scrapper to creatively “fill in the page”.

Samples of Cluster and Paper Stack Templates

A “picture is worth a thousand words” so here is a sampling of the cluster and paper stack templates that I found in stores:

going in circles: clusters

Products In Action

The reason I like these templates is that they let me quickly start a page while at the same time giving me enough room to put my own creative touch on the page.

Here’s one paper stack product and a page I made with it:

Stacked: Straight

I used a paper cluster template by Chelle’s Creations (shown above) as a starting point for the layout. I loved that I was able to quickly drop the paper strips onto my page and start clipping papers. I resized some paper strips and removed some layers – they’re very versatile tools.

Here’s another sample:

Quickly stacked 1 templates PU

2012-02-04-WritingValentines-web

For the page above, I started with a paper stacker template by ad77 designs and then added photos and other embellishments to suit the photos. It came together very quickly.

I used ad77 design’s paper stack template again for the following page, where I combined it with a white-space style template by Zinnias and Swallowtails.

2012-02-05-Sweet-web

I think there is a place in my digi supplies for both full templates and cluster and paper stack templates. They are excellent page starters for when I need a little help with capturing my family stories.

Have a great weekend!

I’m in love with Project Life, for the last two years I made Project 365 and I have to say it’s awesome but I was tired about photos 365 days in a year, so I discovered Project Life and fell in love with it. I still take many photos but now I have some days off 🙂 and I love to write on it, it’s really an amazing project!

Digi Scrapping Spring and Easter

image

Dani Mogstad In Your Easter Bonnet

While there’s no reason that you have to scrap about the season or holidays happening right now, I find that I often feel motivated to create pages centered on the what’s currently happening around me. I have a hard time wanting to scrap about Halloween when my calendar says April, even though it’s perfectly fine to do so. I figure that it’s better to go with this creative flow than to fight it, so right now I’m in a spring & Easter scrapbooking mood!

I must not be the only one to feel this way because the digi stores are packed with Easter and spring themed goodies. The galleries are also filled with lots of seasonal inspiration. As I browsed through our flickr group, I found so many pages that make me want to scrap the season! (all images are linked to credits)

Pastel colors, bunnies, candy, and cute little chickies all make me happy that Easter is almost here!

My favorite part of Spring has to be the beautiful flowers!

I love that little kids can wear bunny ears, spring clothes, and Easter finery at this time of year.

Butterflies and spring flowers aren’t only for girls, I put them on my son’s scrapbook pages too!

Easter and spring holidays are filled with traditions and special memories to document.

Spring has such a soft and sweet feeling, I love seeing that captured on a scrapbook page!

Easter eggs and candy come in such bright and vivid colors – this results in stunning photographs!

I love how new and fresh everything feels in the springtime.

And how about Spring Break? It’s always nice to have some time off or to go on an adventure!

iPads, Vegas, and Getting Around

image

A couple of weeks ago, I was able to join almost 100 digital scrapbookers in Vegas for Digiscrapapalooza! Among those there were a lot of members, readers, and listeners to The Digi Show. I was also fortunate to meet our team members (from L to R above) Jenn Lindsey, Katrina Kennedy, and Trina (I’m in the solid black). It was so fun to spend time visiting with my team members about digital scrapbooking, photography, and real life stuff!

I was joined by my real life, digi scrapping friend, Alicia and can you believe, I don’t have any photos of us together!?

I got photos taken with lots of readers and listeners (I’m still hoping they will send me copies…pretty please). One of our readers, members, and listeners was quickly loved by all. Joyce is hilarious and had me laughing so hard, that not only did my mouth hurt, but my whole head! It was a joy to meet and visit with her.

I took Katrina’s photography class and finally, finally moved my camera to manual mode! Woot!

We recorded a live Digi Show my last night there. It was a fun show, filled with lots of questions for designers and business owners. I felt a bit frazzled taping the show live, especially with that many panelists. Liz Moss was on the green team with me (a big thanks to Chelle for all of her work on our team stuff) and so I accidentally introduced Liz Albers (Scrapping with Liz) as Liz Moss (sigh).

It was a super fun time and I am so glad I was able to go. A big THANKS to Kami, Mel, and the Scrap Orchard crew for going above and beyond. Also, thanks to Chelle and the rest of the GREEN TEAM! It really is fun to put faces and voices with all of the names!

Yesterday, I sent an email to members that the Playbook is now available in iBooks format! I’m really excited about this addition to our lineup for members. The iBooks Playbook can be downloaded directly in the members area from your iPad and will open directly in iBooks.

We are also working on a Kindle Fire and Nook Color versions.

Last week, I shared some tips with our members on getting around the site. These were things that our members had asked for in a recent members survey, but are already features on the site. I figured if our members don’t know about them, then our readers might not either. So, I thought I would share them here too.

First up, I’ve had several requests for an easy way to access the designers features at the end of the month. This will help you be able to get to those designers’ coupons you all love!

ScreenClip2204

If you go to the home page and click on “designers” that will take you to a page that has previews for all of the items included in The Digi Files. They are added as they are revealed on the home page. They link back to the original designers’ features with those coupons at the end.

ScreenClip2273

ScreenClip2266

Another member mentioned that they wish there was a way to see all of the designers that had contributed to The Digi Files in the past. They have come to trust our recommendations and are overwhelmed by the amount of designers to choose from. If you go to the home page and click on “Past Designers” in the side bar, you will find a list of all of the designers that have contributed by the month they were featured (most recent on top). The list is linked to their stores and we try to keep it as up-to-date as possible, but with over 170 different designers, it isn’t always perfect! Winking smile

ScreenClip2213

Someone said they would love a way to pull up all of Katrina’s photography posts. To pull up all of the posts by any author, just click on their name under the post title. I had my programmer set it up so the author names/links come through your reader as well.

ScreenClip2223

We also have all of the posts categorized. All of Katrina’s Photography posts can be found in the photography category. There are a few posts by other authors in that category as well.

ScreenClip2234

From the home screen, if you click on “tutorials” you will find a lot of different topics of posts, tutorials, resources, and information:

ScreenClip2243

One more way you can find past posts, resources, and information is our search tool. We actually have paid for Google to run our little search bar so we can provide you with the best results possible and it does a pretty good job:

ScreenClip2253

Don’t be afraid to click around the site and see what you can find. You just might be surprised what you discover!

I have to admit that I can get easily carried away with scrapping girly pages. I LOVE girly things and find myself having a TON of pages of my daughter and not as much of my sons. When I created the Beep.Bop.Boop kit I thought it would be great to finally scrap something of my youngest son, Ethan.

Just a tip: When using graphics like the robots in this kit, it is fun to incorporate them in different ways like how I have the robot holding the photo in this layout. It gives the graphic more interest (versus just sticking it on the page) and adds a little fun.

howitallstarted3
I started digital scrapbooking in early 2008. I have never done paper but was beginning to learn Photoshop when a dear friend introduced me to digi. I was hooked immediately and haven’t looked back since.

I started my adventure in designing when I became a part of the Little Dreamer Designs Apprentice program. The Apprentice experience was a fabulous way to get my feet wet. I was able to learn from one of the industry’s most amazing designers, Michelle Coleman, which was such a treat. After LDD I went to Two Peas in a Bucket and am still a designer there.

I have always been a creative person. I get inspired by everything from print ads to fashion. I love playing with colors and drawing in Illustrator.

Computer: I currently use an HP TouchSmart 600-1150qd. It has Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) with of 8 GB RAM. I also use an 1 TB Western Digital EHD for extra storage along with it.

Camera: I have a Canon Rebel XSi and I also keep a Canon point & shoot in my bag

Anything Else: I use a Wacom Bamboo tablet but am looking to upgrade to the Intuos.

tipstricks
While it is fun to get caught up in using yummy papers and fabulous elements, don’t forget what using a great brush can add to your pages. Brushes are wonderful for adding some depth to your pages and/or interest behind a photo. Have fun playing with splatter brushes or a fun bubble brush.

favoriteproduct3
My favorite product is one of my most recent kits. I teamed up with the amazing Penny Springmann and we created a fun kit made for the everyday. The kit is using some of the hottest colors for spring (which are fabulous!). It was fun making such a happy kit to capture those everyday moments and to work with not only a great designer but a great friend.

Sunshine & Happiness was my first full kit created at Two Peas in a Bucket. It was a dreary winter in Illinois and I was feeling the need for a little sunshine, thus Sunshine & Happiness was born. I wanted the kit to be filled with happy colors and whimsical elements to help chase those winter blues away.
