Design Your Story with Embellishment Gatherings

We Love layers. We love embellishments. We love details.

We can bring the layers, the embellishments — all the eye-catching details — together to create embellishment gatherings that will draw a person into your creations and lead their eye to where you want it go!

So here’s what we’re going to learn about embellishment gatherings:

  • Types and Places - Different types of gatherings and the places you can put them on your scrapbook and mini-book pages.

No more shuffling things around, trying to figure out where your embellishments should go!

  • Parts and Pieces - The different elements that make up a great layered embellishment gathering.

If you have these three different pieces in mind you’ll have no problem figuring out how to put together a cluster of embellishments. We’ll remove the fuss and go straight to the play!

  • Supplies - Different types of supplies you can choose that will become the parts and pieces of your embellishment gatherings.

We’ll go out of the box to repurpose traditional scrapbook supplies so you can use them in surprising new ways in your layered gatherings.

We’ll remove the mystery of how much embellishing to use and where to put embellishments!

That is, we’ll remove the mystery for YOU.

But we’ll be CREATING MYSTERY on your pages because your gatherings will draw people in to your surprising and beautiful details!

Are you ready to start layering and gathering?

Designing with Symbols and Imagery

You probably wouldn’t have guessed that a topic as abstract as designing with symbols and imagery would help you in those very concrete and basic areas. But it will and Noell will show you how! You’ll also find that your scrapbooking choices are more deliberate, intuitive, and rewarding! There are more ways to tell a story than with just words, and symbols are a fun way to communicate at a deeper level. They can also make it easier to scrapbook!

Story Core Design: A Storytelling Process for Scrapbooking

Do you stare at a mostly blank page for too long while you scrapbook? Do you get excited about fabulous photos, only to find you’re lacking an equally fabulous idea for your page? Do you spend too much time hunting for inspiration or moving things around the page, and not completing enough layouts?

Story Core Design will help you with all of these challenges. Story Core Design is Noell Hyman’s own scrapbooking process, and it has a built-in inspiration system so you’re never without ideas. It narrows down placement and product options for you and eliminates overwhelm from beginning to end. You’ll spend less time hunting for the perfect products and very little time moving things around the page.

In this presentation for True Scrap you’ll see this entire process in action!

Design Your Story with Bits and Pieces

Want a fun layout concept that will make your leftovers and scraps look freaking awesome? In this class Noell will teach you how to create some very different pages with this one concept. It’s an idea you’ll be able to use over and over, and people will just think you make tons of fun and energetic pages with lots of movement and visual interest — which, of course, will be true. Get ready to breathe new life into your leftovers!
