He also likes the Glitter Girl videos, as does my two year old.


So does my son! He grabbed the same pair of pink and black scissors and struck a pose announcing he was Glitter Boy.

Do you ever teach classes stateside?

I haven't recently. There are far fewer events for teaching and in most cases they need to keep their budget as low as possible, so my airfare from London doesn't help things. A few times I've had events offer *just* the airfare as my teaching wage and I just can't make that work! There are not many UK-based teaching opportunities right now either, I'm afraid.

The events on my calendar for the spring are in Germany and Italy! (And I don't speak German...don't speak Italian! It shall be an adventure as always!)

I know that you and your dear friend GG often build your own embellishments and clusters, but I haven't seen many instances where you've mentioned using your electronic die cutter (I think you have a cameo?).


This is one of the reasons I love Glitter Girl! I have a Slice, but I don't have a dedicated space for it and sometimes (oftentimes) I don't feel like hauling it. I'll do just about anything I can to avoid using it, and if I can't then I wait until I have a big pile of things to cut so I can do it all at once.

Being a midwest girl myself, I was always curious about your move to England. Did you study abroad and that's how you fell in love with England? I just think it is amazing that you went from Kansas to moving to London. I mean that's a major move.


I moved to England for grad school and did my MA here. I knew in about two weeks that I wanted to stay - it was the first time I'd ever felt comfortable in my own skin. I'm always grateful for the small town where I grew up and the slightly larger town where I went to college in Kansas as both taught me so much and I got to experience so many things because in a small town you can sign up for everything! And I did! But I always had a feeling I was meant to be a city girl, and as soon as I moved, I knew that was absolutely true. It honestly never felt scary, major or intimidating for even five seconds. I had plenty go wrong in my personal life to challenge my commitment to England, but everything worked itself out eventually!



And sort of scrap related, is there anything here in the States that you miss and just isn't available as easily in England? Certain products or supplies?


I order all my supplies from Two Peas so not at all!

I'm wondering about how often you replace the foam blending tool replacements also. Mine are disintegrating.

@KBPea -- The only one I have that has this problem is the one I use for black (I also use a separate pad for each colour). Maybe it is because I only use it for inking the edges of paper? I almost exclusively use black for inking edges, so maybe the paper is simply cutting the foam because of the angle at which I ink.

This may seem like an odd query, but you do a lot of inking... so I'm wondering how often you replace the foam on your blending tool. (Alternatively, this can be read as 'My foam seems to be falling off in wee little black balls and I simply can't replace the foam because some of it still exists.)



I've never replaced one yet. Maybe that's horrible and gross, I don't know. I figure it's an ink pad, not a tooth brush. (For the record, I changed my toothbrush yesterday.)

It does sometimes crumble and sometimes you might even catch me brushing it off the paper in a video, but it's always just the tiniest bit so it doesn't really bother me. It still looks right on the paper so that's what I'm concerned with. When that becomes problematic, I'll change it.

Sorry if that seems totally weird - I am way in the waste-not-want-not camp. (Though I did see that Youtube clip of the family that reuses all their paper towels five times. I don't do that. I just... use a cloth towel. Idea of the century.)

I just finished Remix. I am in school full time so I really have not had time to scrap. But I plan to use all the class material in the summer!

Any hints on upcoming classes?

Also has a decision been made about your pall Glitter girl continuing in 2013?

Ive been wondering...Ive been on a bit of a scrapping hiatus for the past 5 years or so and Ive worked out WHY it wasnt working for me.

Now I have an enormous backlog of memories Id love to scrap but I also find myself in a world of completely new trends in the scrap world.

My question is, should I steer clear of current trends when scrapping older photos since the style of paper patterns and embellishments wont reflect the period of the pictures??

I just want to say hi Shimelle, I only started scrap booking earlier this year, and your glitter girl videos were my introduction in to this lovely hobby you have been a massive source of inspiration and knowledge, and I have taken a lot of your classes now, including scrapbook remix, which I loved! I am so looking forward to starting your JYC for the first time tomorrow!

Hey Miss Shimelle!! So nice to see your sweet face here! Long time fan, student of shimelle.com!

I'm excited to get my JYC email and plan to mix it in with my DD album. I love the prompts and while i've never finished one, i'm planning on this being the year!!

I'm trying to figure out what to do with the pages and writing I've done in years past for my JYC, etc. Any thoughts?
Thanks!

Just wanted to tell you that I loved "The Perfect Collection" My husband noticed me doing a bunch of layouts one day and I tried explaining it. Now he tells me to go in my scraproom and do something "Smelly" when I'm buggin' him.
He also likes the Glitter Girl videos, as does my two year old.


YAY - so lovely to hear The Perfect Collection helped you get lots of pages done!

And it never ceases to make me laugh when someone comes up with the 'smelly' joke. Because they ALWAYS think they are the FIRST PERSON ON THE PLANET to think of it. It cracks. me. up.

@KBPea -- The only one I have that has this problem is the one I use for black (I also use a separate pad for each colour). Maybe it is because I only use it for inking the edges of paper? I almost exclusively use black for inking edges, so maybe the paper is simply cutting the foam because of the angle at which I ink.



That makes sense. I ink edges a lot too, but I try to come at the paper sort of at a 45 degree angle instead of holding the paper at a 90 degree angle against the foam pad. Maybe that would help because it wouldn't be cutting the foam as much? I find that I get a little more on the page that way too, although that may not be the look you are going for. I love inking the edges of my pages, I think it really helps pulling all the different elements together!

Hi Shimelle!!
My question is about a 2 page scrapper trying to convert to a one page scrapper. I love the look of the one page designs, but can never seem to whittle down to only 2 photos to make this look work for me. I always seem to want to make sure I include pics of everyone at the event/outing/party etc. How do you narrow down your photo selection?

Kia ora Shimelle, I am in Auckland, NZ. It is Saturday morning & I am eating my muesli!

A big thank you for the classes you have produced this year - I am much happier with my albums since I reorganised them, Cover to Cover style.

Love all your videos & wonder if you have ever thought of doing a class, about making videos.


Kia ora! though it doesn't have the same ring from a freezing cold dark Friday night in Londontown! In this cold weather, I miss living in our bright orange spaceship in NZ!

So happy to hear your album system is now working well for you!

I don't have any plans to teach a dedicated class on making videos. I do occasionally take on private consulting jobs and that often includes video training. I just don't think it's something I could really market to the wider audience of my usual classes.

Ta, Shimelle. I'll just keep using my foam pads until they are foamless, then. I'd rather spend my small scrappy budget on other things.

And FWIW, we've had a paper-free kitchen for 8 years now. Cloth towels. Best thing ever. And I don't have to haul those bundles of kitchen towels home on the bus.

I fully appreciate the use of of the punches, it just makes me want to buy them and I'm trying to avoid it since I have the cameo.

I watched the GG video about die cutting machines, but that only made me want more from shimelle and GG.

Just my opinion, obviously, but I wouldn't! I think you should use whatever you want. However, "vintage" is currently trendy, so I think if you looked at some of the collections from October Afternoon, Cosmo Cricket, Graphic 45, Glitz Designs, and Prima you'd probably find new products that you think "match" the era of your photos better.

Shimelle, do you ever have scrapping ruts, and if you do what do you to get out of it.


I've been really lucky to be on a good streak for a long while now! Sometimes I make things that others don't like as much (there are a few GG videos that have way more dislikes or negative comments than the rest - but honestly, it's hard to get it right in that sometimes people say my pages look too alike, then when I try something a bit different, people dislike that it's so different. So I don't really pay it much attention. That doesn't mean I don't notice when I see it on the screen though!) but in general I make a lot of pages and the longest break I've taken in 2012 is four days. It's kinda crazy really.

My key is to always keep changing my routine. Sometimes I start with photos, sometimes words, sometimes product, sometimes colour, sometimes a technique... I just keep mixing up those elements.

And my album system has really helped me because I know every page contributes to a larger story. It makes it feel a bit more worthwhile.

If you get stuck, I wouldn't push it. If there are things that make you want to start crafting, try those - new photos, new supplies, watch a video, use a sketch, lift a page - but it's okay to just take a break and do other stuff! Live, breathe, exercise, explore, write, take pictures.

I think having another activity I can label as a 'hobby' since this is way into the territory of 'job' for me has been really key for my personal adventure too.

Hope that helps!

@KBPea

Its funny that Vintage has become trendy. Ive always loved it and my wedding reflected it (although it was only 12 years ago!!) so vintage will be the way to go for those photos but I guess Im thinking in terms of scrapping family photos - chevrons, pennants and ink splatters will still be OK for 5 year old photos?

what's your favorite childhood memory?


Oh my goodness - that's a tough one! This isn't my favourite necessarily but it's the first one I thought was relevant, so I'll go with that.

When I was in grade school, I watched a lot of She-Ra (Princess of Power! Sister of He-Man!) cartoons. She-Ra could fly. So I was convinced I could fly. Pretty much every day, I would climb to the top of the jungle gym and try to fly. Every day, stupid freaking gravity would win and I would fall to the ground. One would think I would learn. Instead, I just thought I didn't believe in myself as much as She-Ra. So I would try again the next day.

I am completely amazed that all my major limbs are still intact.

I think it would still work, for sure. Worst case, buy just enough supplies to make one page, make sure you don't cover up the photo/cut it in a weird way on that page, and then if you hate the result you can take the photo off and re-do it with older stuff. I have a lot of things that are close to five years old in my stash and they work fine for my current photos, so I don't see why it wouldn't work the other way around too!

I know that you and your dear friend GG often build your own embellishments and clusters, but I haven't seen many instances where you've mentioned using your electronic die cutter (I think you have a cameo?).

How much do you actually use it and what are your favorite uses for it given that you so often use punches and manual dies?


I have a Silhouette SD - this is smaller than the Cameo.

Glitter Girl used it in the most recent video and also in one just about die-cutting and an earlier adventure about sewing if I remember correctly.

I don't use it often because I don't like involving the computer in my crafting process. I use the computer enough - it feels like work to rely on it for craft too. (That's also why I print almost all my photos, etc.) I just prefer working on things that are handmade rather than gadget made. I use my own handwriting instead of typing, etc. It's all the same thing to me.

Ironically, the shapes in the Silhouette store that grab my attention first are always handwritten designs, but I don't want my albums to regularly feature someone else's handwriting, so I tend to delete them from my cart and go with stars, cameras, maps and seasonal designs.

@Eclectic-stuff

I guess from a historical perspective (and Im really jumping ahead here!) but early quilts have been dated by the patterns and fabrics used so I can just see someone scratching their head wondering why 2012 techniques were used on 2007 photos.

Im sorry if I sound loopy. Its 6am here and I havent been to bed yet!

ITA! HOwever, i will use fonts on my computer and make my own titles, etc. from them. Also, I'm sure to journal by hand 99% of the time, so i know my writing is represented!

I must admit, i do love learning how to design in Sil Studio though. Also, i don't have to spend any time on the computer if i don't want to, so that makes a difference too!

I have another question for Shimelle and everyone else:

When youre journalling about somebody else, do you use the second or third person? Most layouts in the gallery seem to use second.

Which one do you prefer and why?

(apologies for my shocking lack of punctuation but my keyboard simply wont co-operate!)

When so much of your life is shared online, is it a challenge to keep your real life separate?
I probably know more about you than some of my friends yet you don't know me at all.



There's a balance. It does sometimes get freaky. Five years ago I had someone recognise my Christmas tree in my window and then knock at my door. That is too much!!!
(Christmas tree now faces the back of the house rather than the street, just in case!)

I do have ways of keeping some things offline. It is hard when there is a real-life reason to explain something but I don't want to tell everyone the full details. I have found myself in a couple jams when it would have been easier to just come out and say 'I'm sorry this is late because HERE IS THIS BIG THING THAT HAPPENED' but I promised myself long ago that the world does not need to know about every personal battle I face. So I try to find a generic reason and don't give details and sometimes I have about six nervous breakdowns behind the scenes because it feels like it would be easier to just put it all out there, but I know in the long run it is not worthwhile.

I do have a personal Instagram account in addition to my public account and it's just for a small group of close friends. I get a lot of people who find that account and I think some of them get upset that I won't let them have access, but I hope at some point they will understand that it's not really appropriate for me to share every iota of my life with strangers.

On the other hand, I'm more than happy to share my recipes, my hotel recommendations, my desire for anyone local to come to dance class with my favourite teacher (first class is on me! no joke!) and of COURSE all my scrapbooking favourites.

I just don't answer a lot of questions that ask to see my house or to know what my DH does or whatever that is entirely out of the crafty realm.

I hope I get the balance pretty much okay!

Hi Shimelle (not sure if you are still chatting or if I'm too late!)

I'm a new Pea because of your videos and blog as well.

I have a question about your Harry Potter Tour - is that something that is open and on-going in London? Can anyone go? Or was it a short time after the movies were made that you had the chance to go to?

Also, which ink do you use for your edges (your brown and black)?

Thanks for Scrapbook Remix and Perfect Collection - and I'm ready for my first JYC as well - can't wait!

@PsychoMama

I understand your concerns, not loopy at all.

Just for fun I went back and did some 2001 photos in the style of the year. Since they need to fit in that album and I was afraid that 'new' styles would be out of place. Thing was, I didn't enjoy the process. It was sort of like been there done that.

Now write on the back the date of creation in case anyone would ever wants to know and I enjoy the process a whole lot more.

I have come to the party late--stupid work...

I don't really have any questions, but just wanted to add my thanks to you for really inspiring me and my way of thinking. I love your videos and look forward to them each week and hope that some incarnation of them continues into 2013. I love that in your videos you explain why. I love the whys of life and I think that is why (ha) I am drawn to your video style.

Thanks for helping me spend money. It's really been worth it.

Yes!!! I had my fair share of She-ra and Thundercats moments!!! LOL!!!
I used to be BattleCat for my little brother

Shimelle, I love your videos. I prefer cardmaking because the amount of paper used for scrapbooking makes me crazy and I''m a minimalist so a small box of photos is my happy place, but I'm always inspired for about 5 minutes after I watch your work. One day maybe

@Eclectic_stuff

Thankyou! Thats kind of what I was afraid of!

I dont want to go back to the old way. I wasnt happy with it back then which is why my early albums are partially finished and abandoned in disgust.

2012 has been a year of many changes for us and I feel I need to document it but I want to revisit the older stuff too.
