Ep 25 Layout a Day- The Podcast: Nothing to Fear

by Lain Ehmann on November 2, 2011


Are you afraid to scrapbook?
Does something strange stop your
creativity? Who ya gonna call?

Well, it doesn’t need to be the
Ghostbusters! (Yeah, yeah, yeah!)
Just listen along as I talk about
why people feel fear while scrapbooking.

In this episode you will learn
* why I swear on a stack of Creating Keepsakes mags,

* what I say is my only rule in scrapbooking,

* who I think is ‘tops’ at helping others understand the
scrapbook design process,

* why our scrapbooking makes us afraid,

* how we can fight back, and

* what’s the worst that could happen!

Check out the Paperclipping episode I talk about in
this podcast here.

Oh and don’t forget to…
1)  register for Your Story Matters and learn to ease
into capturing your story on your scrapbook pages,

2)  visit the True Scrap website for the
Spawn of True Scrap replays and mark your
calendar for the upcoming True Scrap III in April 2012, then

on this or a previous episode and I’ll answer them lickety split!

Have a ScrapHappy week! See you next Wednesday!

    Love the daily affirmation with Stuart Smalley!  Great podcast today.  I think my “fear” comes from my perfectionist side.  Also, I don’t have a lot of time to scrap, so I stick with what I know how to do.  I am getting better (much better) at letting go and I think I need to set more time aside to play with techniques maybe on a tag or card and NOT during LOAD to branch out a bit.  Overall, though, I do feel like I am evolving as a scrapbooker….whatever that means! lol

    I think it all comes down to what you want to do with your scrapbooking. Some people are very happy scrapbooking the same way forever. Their pages today look just like their pages 10 years ago. And that is totally okay! But I figured anyone listening to my podcast probably falls into that “evolving” scrapbooker category. ;)

    I really enjoyed listening to this podcast today, you’ve made me a little teary eyed actually. I have the perfectionist problem too and I’m holding myself hostage to an unachievable aim. Very interesting too your comments on the pages created for commercial reasons. I’ve seen this first hand in a LSS (creating a page with a fake picture to highlight a particular product) but I never considered it happened in magazines too. Thank you!

    It’s sort of like the airbrushing that we know goes on in professional mags… ;) So glad that this episode “spoke” to you. Here’s to breaking the chains of perfectionism! :)
