Inspiring Videos

Have you noticed all the inspiring videos popping up lately? Today I want to share links with you to some of my recent favorites.

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you've probably seen some of my Photo Album Scrapbooks, an idea I first learned from Stacy Julian when I set up my Library of Memories system. Stacy shares several of her albums and the process to create these fun keepsakes in a recent My Craft Channel episode - Photo Album Scrapbooking.

My Craft Channel is brand new this month and another video that I really enjoyed was Ella Publishing's Your Life in Lists. Near the end of this video, Wendy & Angie share how to create a handmade book of lists. I especially like the one with eclectic pages, a great gift idea that can be personalized for anyone.

Noell Hyman is sharing a free video on Repurposing Stuff Into Scrapbooking as they celebrate Paperclipping's 5th birthday. I often use everyday items on my layouts, however there were several ideas in this video that I hadn't thought to try. I especially like the way she uses a clear bag like a transparency.

Each week Shimelle shares a sketch to layout video. I always enjoy watching her create a layout and hearing her explain the process and her reasons for choosing certain products and embellishments.

Have you found any inspirating videos lately? If so, please leave a link in the comments so I can check them out.


  1. I have seen many links...haven't watched them yet. Looking forward to My Craft Channel, but haven't peeked yet. I love Noel's stuff and weekly show, but I can hardly keep up with listening. I'm behind several episodes, but whenever I do listen, I'm always smiling and enjoying it!

  2. Thanks for the links, I hope to come back to them. I recently got the SheARt workshop and am buried with videos to watch.

  3. videos seem to be the way of the future at the moment, and until recently I had tried everything in my power to avoid watching them! then one day I decided to watch shimelle's sketch of the week video, then stacy's first video at my craft channel, and now I'm hooked!


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
