Hello snow

Here’s another assignment from Cathy Zielske‘s Design Your Life 2.0 class. I went a little rebellious with that one : I rotated the template and merged the last two photos :).

Voici une autre page pour la classe de Cathy Zielske Design Your Life 2.0. J’ai fait ma rebelle sur ce coup-là : j’ai tourné le template et fusionné les deux dernières photos :).

In a blink

I joined Cathy Zielske‘s Design Your Life 2.0 class when it was still possible to do so and am tremendously enjoying myself (didn’t doubt for a second that I would though, as I’m a huuuuge fan of Cathy’s). I wasn’t available when the class went live so I’m catching up in order to benefit from the interaction with the other members. Today I’m sharing assignment 1 from week 1.

Je me sis inscrite à la classe de Cathy Zielske Design Your Life 20 quand il était encore possible de le faire et je m’éclate complètement (ce dont je ne doutais pas vu que je suis une graaaaaaande fan de Cathy). Je n’étais pas disponible quand la classe a commencé aussi je me retrouve à rattraper mon retard puisque j’entends bien profiter de la possibilité d’interaction avec les autres participants. Je partage aujourd’hui la première page de la première semaine.

Clean & Simple Scrapbooking | Cathy Zielske

I started scrapping digitally in 2005-2006 & stopped shortly after because of a slow laptop which was making the whole process of putting pages together tedious and a real pain instead of being a freeing creative outlet. I didn’t scrap at all for a few years, until I got a brand new faster more powerful laptop in 2011.
That’s when I started scrapping again. Like crazy. I scrapped like I used to in my last pages from 2006-2007 : with few embellishments, no clusters, usually on a white background, focusing on the photos, the story, the people and not on the products used to make the page. Back then I remember I was feeling like I wasn’t really scrabooking because my pages were so different from what I could see in the galleries. But in 2011 I discovered that it’s ok to scrap like I did and loved to, that I wasn’t alone doing this and that it even had a name : clean & simple scrapbooking. How cool was that ?! That’s when I stumbled (among other things) upon Cathy Zielske’s blog and fell in love with her voice, her pages, her style. I tried to buy her books, but with the shipping costs from the US, there was no way I could afford them and I couldn’t find them on amazon.fr at the time.
Cathy Zielske just launched her new website, revamped her brand and I’ve enjoyed tremendously her series of blog posts Anatomy of a Rebrand in which she shares about her scrapbooking journey and how it led her to rebranding (part 1part 2part 3wrap up). These posts are probably the reason I checked her books again. I found used copies (but in good or even very good condition, I’m a bit OCD when it comes to books) and since the seller is located in the UK the shipping costs are not that bad (actually I think that I got a pretty good deal there since both used books + shipping was less than half the cost of one book new !!).
That’s why, as of this morning I am now the lucky owner of Clean & Simple Scrapbooking – The Sequel by Cathy Zielske. The other book, which is actually the first one she wrote, will soon be delivered.


So far, I’ve just flipped through but I can already see that it’s full of everything I wanted, needed. It seems very inspirational and I have « no ragrets » *wink* about buying this book, naw what I’m sayin 🙂 ?!
