I agree with cengland, you have helped me grow my scrapbooking skills so much and each week I can't wait for the new video to come out. Scrap on! And thank you.
Hi Glitter Girl - thanks for all the inspiration in 2012 (and for answer a particular problem of mine - stretching sketches!). I'm glad to see you will be back in 2013.
You asked what our favourite episode of 2012 was - well, hard as it is, I can narrow it down to two I think - first, of course, the episode about turning a one page sketch into a two page sketch (my own dilemma), and the second is one of the early episodes about using scraps - I loved the LO that you did with all the layered circles!
I have listened regularly to your weekly videos in my craft area which backs up to my husband's in home office. Little did I know my husband had been listening too. One night as I was starting the weekly episode he walked past and said, "Oh, so that is Glitter Girl it's nice to have a face to go with the with the name." I am so glad you'll be back for another year! (Haven't let him know yet, want it to be a surprise.)
Thank you, Shimelle (and Two Peas)! SO thrilled to see Glitter Girl returning this year, I honestly can't tell you what a change you have made to my scrapbooking craft. :D
How can you pick just one? They are all just perfection. Thank you so much for all the scrapbooking scrumptiousness you gave us in 2012. I'm looking forward to what's in store for 2013.
As I watched the "year in glitter girl" slideshow I realized there were several episodes I must have somehow missed so I've started rewatching from the beginning and was delighted be the wonderful information in the vintage photo episode. I hadn't watched it before because I thought it meant "vintage" like the 1920s - wow what a great explanation of the differences in color (colour) and tone between our current digital photos and the photos of the 70s, 80s and 90s and how we can compensate for this with our patterned paper selection! Thank you so much Glitter Girl for all your help in 2012 - I'm so looking forward to another great year!
I so enjoyed your seeing ALL of your projects from the year. If I had to choose the scenic paper video was my Ah Ha moment of 2012. :)
so happy to hear that glitter girl will continue in 2013!
I am SOOO happy you are back and so grateful for all your adventures. Looking over the 2012 layouts in your video, I realised how much I had learned about using die cuts on a page. I don't really have a favorite adventure (there are too many) but I very much appreciated improving that aspect of my scarpbooking. The other important element for me was learn ing how to use patterend papers as backgrounds. GG, as well as Shimelle's classes I took, really helped me improve. Here is to more improvement in 2013!
Thanks for all the inspiration!
I loved all the adventures, but two of my favorites were:
30-You'e grounded and 27-Deciphering Depth. These episodes helped me understand design. Out of the box was another favorite. It's always fun to see what people purchase. I can't wait to see more adventures in 2013.
Glitter Girl, I've loved every episode, but especially the one with dimensional paint with the background map! I wondered how to use some of my "busy" papers, and that technique is great for it. I'm so glad you'll be back on Wednesday's, I look forward to your presentations!
I liked 005: Page Protector Problem the best
So glad to hear Glitter Girl is returning! You provide so much inspiration! And I just don't think I could ever pick a favourite!!!
Leggings are your thing was the first Glitter Girl video that I saw and it was love at first site. My most inspiring video was home made embellishments. It gave me a new perspective on the scrapping challenge and helps me customize my laouts to be a bit different than what everyone else is doing. Thrilled with the new 6 day line up. I love 2 peas!
Yippee another year with Glitter Girl. Very hard to pick a favourite,
My favourite was the kit episode! I've watched it a few times now to get inspired to put new combinations together.
Happy Happy New Year!! so excited to spend another year with GG!! You covered so much in 2012 already, but I'm sure we have more dilemmas for 2013. Perhaps more design principles, and tips for translating patterns we see everyday into layouts? Thanks 2peas and GG!!
Kit episode was my favorite - but I do love all of them! I'm happy to spend another year with Glitter Girl!
I am soooooo happy to know that I will again be joining you for inspiration every wednesday!!!! I LOVE your pages.
I am so glad you are continuing your videos. Is it odd that I just love listening to you? :) I love your accent and your approach to your pages.
Glitter girl! I need help with my titles! You have a way with your titles, either with the placement, the colors you choose for your letters, etc... I always seem to have a problem with that, which I always keep for the end and then, when I look at my page, I wonder: Ok, where am I going to place my title? What colors of letters am I going to use? So I would like to understand your process with this: do you decide of your title before you start your page? Do you know where you are are going to place it? Do you know what colors you are going to choose for your letter before you start? Help!
I really loved the Die Cut Dynamics (1&2) I really loved your use of electronic die cutting machines. I own one, but always forget to use it.
The first thing I did after coming home from work tonight was to ck to see what the news was for Glitter Girl in 2013. I am SOOOOOOO excited that Glitter Girl will be back!!!!! HOORAY and AMEN!!!! The videos were one of those things that I looked forward to each wk. I'm glad to see that I don't have to say goodbye to Glitter Girl! favorite episodes? How could I choose? Each one became my favorite after I watched it. Each one inspired me. I liked the "making your own kit" episode, and any episode where you highlighted a particular supply - like Washi tape, vellum, 6x6 paper, transparencies, die cuts, etc. Your teaching style is great too. I wouldn't change a thing!
If I had to choose just ONE, I would have to say it is tied between "out of the box" and the kit making episode. But really, I have learned something from each one!
How can I choose? Glitter Girl has been instrumental in helping me want to scrap again and understand why I stopped several years ago. Many videos have helped but in particular those relating to putting together a "kit" to work from ("pick a patterened paper", "out of the box" and Shimelle's NSD video) and this in turn helps me breathe some life into my old supplies by combining them with fresh new ones ("old+new to the rescue") and putting them to good use. In the same way, "Three scrap strategies" will help me reduce the size of my scrap drawer. My most favourite, however is probably the one about use 6x6 pads! I have a lot of these and I loved the length of the video. Thank you Glitter Girl!
There's really no way I can pick just one. Here are my top five in no particular order.
1. Mist of Magnitude - I'm new (or was) to mists and sprays so, this was very helpful.
2. Pick a Pack of Patterned Paper - I'm slowly learning to put together pages with items from different collections.
3. Kit Me Up - again learning to mix and match
4. Die Cut Dynamics - Great ideas for helping me use what I have
5. Clustered Combinations - I always love the clusters you come up with so, it was great to see your thought process.
I'm looking forward to learning more this year!
Though I can't pick just one favorite, I can say that I surely have a favorite concept! That is your ability to embrace color. Color choice has always been a hard one for me...to match the photos, to match the PP exactly...what to do? But, this limited me and I hadn't realized it. Your bold use of color has inspired me in a way that I can never thank you for enough. With 2 girls and 2 boys I no longer feel the girl pages must be pink and the boy pages must be blue. Glitter Girl, you have stretched my imagination and you are awesome! So glad you are back!!!
There is no way to pick just one adventure as my favorite. I truly do love them all. I love to see how you mix your papers, embellishments. There are times at the beginning of the video when you are going through your items you are using, I think to myself, "Oh my goodness that doesn't go together at all." But in the end, your page looks amazing and cohesive. You truly amaze me! So glad you are back for 2013!
Soo happy Glitter Girl will still be saving the world from scrapbooking dilemmas in 2013!!! Can't really choose one fave, though! Loved Scenic Solutions, Stylish 6x6 Strategies, Vexed by Vellum, and the one where you showed us how to pull together our own kits! And I'm thrilled that 2Peas has added so many (6!!) educational videos to my week! Yay!!
OMG! Such AWESOME news! I love Glitter Girl videos & am sooooo happy they will be back. Faves? I can't decide~I love them all! I learned something from each of them. Thanks Two Peas for ALL the videos! :)
my favorite was the addition of the strip of 4x6 divided pockets to the outside of the elephant ride layout. I am getting ready to employ that in my own vacation scrapbook.
My favorites were creating one's own embellishments from patterned paper and the one on clustered embellishments. Thanks so much Glitter Girl!
I've enjoyed so many of your classes, but I think the lesson I've used most often lately is the Page Protector Problem class. I have an album for my son's school years (he's currently in 1st grade so I have layouts for 3k, 4k, and Kindergarten). I've used your page protector tips (along with some of the 4x6 Photo Love sketches) on every page of that album.
Happy New Year Glittler Girl and thanks for returning! Some of my favorite videos were a couple you did on making "clusters" (#4,#38), #23 on titles, #43 on masculine l/o's, and a few where you showed us how you put a kit together and choose your papers (#8,15,19). I've enjoyed every one! Maria
A couple of my favorites, among so many great ones, are the 2 you answered for me about Washi vs. ribbon and using Simple Stories/PL cards and elements on regular layouts.
Thank you so much for putting my question's answer into motion for me as well as others.
Happy 2013! I can't wait to see what's ahead. :D
