Get It Scrapped CT Blog Hop
Welcome to the Get It Scrapped Creative Team blog hop. I hope you enjoyed Marie-Pierre's post. If this is your first stop today and you want to hop in order, you may want to start at the Get It Scrapped Blog.
A few years ago, I became a student at Masterful Scrapbook Design. I knew I loved scrapbooking but I didn't know a whole lot about page layouts or design elements. I liked my pages, but I wanted something more. I wanted to know why certain layouts appealed to me more than others. I wanted to develop a personal style and to know how design fit in with that style.
The articles and classes at Get It Scrapped were the perfect answer for me. The seminars focused on key concepts while being open minded enough to allow me creative freedom. I participated in live interviews and learned tips and tricks from top designers. All the while, I learned that many of them experienced some of the same thoughts and doubts I had while creating. It has been ( and continues to be) a wonderful experience.
About a year ago, there was a call for Creative Team members. I applied, though I was doubtful I would be selected. When the invitation came to join the team, you can imagine how exciting it was. Today, I am just as excited. Once again, I will be joining a fabulous team of memory keepers!
Just because I am on a creative team, doesn't mean that my development has stopped. We're all still learning and developing our skills. I learn a lot through every assignment and blog post at Get It Scrapped.
I was asked to pick a favorite blog article to share with you. Picking one wasn't easy, but I finally settled on one. Dina Wakely wrote a fabulous article called 6 Ideas for Using Tags on your Scrapbook Layouts .
All Aboard by Christy Strickler Supplies| Cardstock Bazzill; Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye; Letters: American Crafts, Jillibean Soup; Tags: Sizzix Wood Veneer: Studio Calico; Chipboard, Ephemera, Tape: JBS Mercantile; Other: buttons, trim, staples
