2013 will be an amazing year for scrapbooking.

scrapbook page by shimelle laine
2013 will be an amazing year for scrapbooking. I know that sounds a little strange for a hobby that isn’t at the popularity height it was six or eight years ago. I know it’s hard to imagine when we hear of many old favourite stores closing their doors. I know it might be rough at an industry level in a year when many are making plans to cut their unnecessary spending even more. But hear me out: I so believe scrapbooking has just turned a corner.

We’ve turned a corner to knowing it doesn’t have to be about gathering in huge groups to finish hundreds of pages over a weekend. The sad news of losing some lovely specialist stores we perhaps took for granted has made it more obvious of just how much our remaining favourites need our support when we do choose to shop for something new. And the changes in crafty spending have seen different types of business innovate to make something out of nothing.


Some examples:
Starting today, Two Peas in a Bucket will now have new scrapbooking tutorial videos six days a week. Almost every designer there now contributes videos, and there are six different scrapping series, so there are all sorts of crafting styles and creativity sparks on offer. (And I am delighted to say my sparkly friend is back: The Adventures of Glitter Girl will continue to be the Wednesday broadcast, and I have more to share about that in just a bit.) All of these videos are free to view and invite you to participate by trying a featured idea or technique. Videos can be viewed at home or on the go, through the Two Peas site, Youtube, or the designers’ respective blogs.

The Paperclipping Roundtable podcast brings together a variety of voices from the scrapbooking world to discuss a new topic each week. Again, completely free to listen. You can listen at home through each episode’s blog post or you can subscribe (for free) in iTunes and listen on your phone or iPod or whatever you prefer. I listen to PRT with my headphones while I’m on the train or walking home. I know quite a few listeners queue up the PRT to listen while in traffic. I know it seems a little odd at first to listen about scrapbooking – since scrapping is such a visual thing. But it really works. If you think about it, it’s not really that odd: I could happily talk about scrapbooking over coffee for ages without a single visual aid. It’s just that if I’m talking with them on the roundtable, I have to click the button to mute my microphone whenever I actually drink the coffee. (Confession: forgetting to mute the microphone is pretty much my biggest fear when I’m on the PRT. I will quite happily say something stupid or get flustered and stutter my way through a point I swear makes sense in my head, but a coffee accident is just waiting to happen.) The Paperclipping team also has a membership programme with regular videos, and in their 2012 round-up post, you can watch the most popular members’ video for free to see what it’s all about.

In a world dominated by quick bits of social media updates, there are bloggers sharing in-depth stuff. From someone who rocks the product like Jen Gallacher pulling together all different layouts to demonstrate how versatile some items in your stash might be (her Product Focus series) to Ali Edwards and her encouragement to choose a word to guide your year, which can help in terms of scrapbooking but also in much more (I love that this concept is something you can do on different levels – carry it in your own mind, work on your own projects, or sign up for a more specific workshop Ali teaches throughout the year). In a scrapbook-blogging world that includes daily updates like this, this, this, this, this, and this, there is inspiration aplenty (some of those I love for the words, others for the visuals, but all of them make me want to stop typing right this second and go glue paper to other paper in an aesthetically pleasing manner). I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to follow every scrapbook blog known to the universe, but there is just so much good stuff being shared right now. Apparently I’m not the only one fixated the the ‘amazing’ thing, as Simple Stories just shared that one of the papers in their new line reads make today ridiculously amazing. Clearly I will need multiple sheets of that paper.

There is one type of message I received now and then throughout 2012 that made me so ridiculously happy. It would come from different types of people – all over the world, different ages and stages in life, different creative styles – and would say pretty much the same thing: I had given up on scrapbooking, but now I love it again. Oh thank you, thank you for not giving up. For giving it another try. For finding what works for you and staying creative. When I would read that, it made me so excited about this entire craft. You know me: I do tend to go over the top.

So here’s the thing: all this awesomeness is out there and you can help support this drive of creativity. You can do things like…
…share something you like with others, like emailing a link to a friend or posting it to Twitter or pinning it to a Pinterest board.
…click the like button on videos or gallery posts or anything else that inspires you to create.
…take a moment to leave a comment in a gallery, on a video, on a blog post or in a reply on social media to let the people who inspire you know you are out there appreciating what they do.
…consider making your selected purchases in ways that support those people and companies providing you with the free stuff you love most.
…create a project in response and share it – post it in a gallery and credit your inspiration or enter a challenge or write a blog post.
All of those things go so far to making this little world of scrapbooking as fabulous as it is, and all but one are free. Okay, making a project probably means you spent something on supplies at some point in time, but trust me, all of us working on projects like this are really happy for you to use any supplies you want, and that includes making an effort to work through a collection you’ve already stashed away! And the one I mention that isn’t free isn’t a case of you-must-spend – rather, it’s a case of if you are going to shop anyway, it would be awesome if can support the projects you love. That’s reasonable, right? And this stuff works for all your favourites across this industry – so many people doing things in different styles and formats, there’s much to share.

Also, I’m a bit biased that I know all of you are amazing because you are the people who have helped me raise thousands of pounds for charity, helping girls get education and fair treatment, and all of that was possible because of scrapbooking. I don’t care that I go over the top: I really do think this is an amazing time in an amazing community of creative people.

I hope you agree. I hope you get excited by the good stuff being shared. I hope you find something that is just right for your style, whatever that may be.

In addition to the return of Glitter Girl, there is some other new stuff you’ll find here starting right now. It includes a monthly kit concept for 2013 called The Best of Both Worlds. It includes three guest bloggers right here every week, working with me to share tutorials and their take on a scrapbooking sketch. Which means yes: there really and truly is a sketch for every week. As in the next six months of sketches already exist as I type this and I can’t begin to tell you how happy that makes me: I have always wanted to have something like that planned so far ahead and this is the first time it’s really happened. It includes lots of opportunities for you to get involved. It includes more video. It includes new workshops soon and a rerun of a requested class from the archives (Pretty Paper Party will run again starting on the 14th of January – more about that coming up soon, but feel free to sign up if you fancy). It includes buttons at the bottom of the screen to take you to the most popular sections of the site. It marks the very first time I’ve ever put my face in the sidebar (it’s still a little odd to me – we’ll see how it goes). It includes coverage from CHA-Winter, the big craft trade show that is now ridiculously close. It includes a lot of scrapbooking and a little bit that isn’t. Changing things around means it’s quite possible I’ve broken something along the way, so it may also mean a few little changes here and there until it all seems settled, but basically: it will be an amazing year for scrapbooking, and I really want to be part of that.

I hope you do too.

    Inspirational post! I know for sure that 2013 is going to be an incredible year and I’m starting to get the feeling there are a few others out there thinking the same thing :)

    Really loving the new site design too! x

  6. Becky Says:

    I’m excited for the 2Peas tutorials, including the return of Glitter Girl. Looking forward to your sketches as well. And know you have inspired me as well and I plan to have a ridiculously amazing year.

  8. Kirsty Smith Says:

    Oh, Shimelle, you make me EVEN MORE excited for scrapbooking :D I wasn’t sure that could be.

    The new look is lovely and I can’t wait for all the content!

  9. Jacky S Says:

    I love your new look…and it all sounds wonderful.

  10. Charlotte Says:

    Amen to this! And a big thank you to you and 2 Peas and everyone else who invests so much in putting the inspiration out there for the rest of us, I truly appreciate it. I sit scrapping at my desk with your videos playing on my laptop, I feel like we’re cropping! x

  11. Christine Duff Says:

    Amazing post from an amazing scrapbooker – it is so cool that 2 Peas is making so much content available for free! Thanks for the inspiration and excitement!

  12. Sonja Says:

    Happy New Year. Great Post.

  13. louise Says:

    an inspiring post Shimelle – love your enthusiasm.

    loving the new look blog x

  14. Bonnie Hewett Says:

    Unfortunately the stores that closed in my area did NOT carry the items I wanted and I turned to online shopping. There is one GREAT scrapbook store in driving distance but it is 75 miles away so I don’t get there often. I love TwoPeas and some other online stores because they carry the products I want and give me wonderful inspiration to keep me scrapping. I love TwoPeas videos and I’m glad Glitter Girl and other videos will continue. It is great inspiration and it is of course a great way for the store to show lots of products that people will then want to buy! Nothing wrong with that – the better off the store is, the better that is for my needs!

  15. Sinead Says:

    Shimelle, this is such a fabulous post about just how amazing scrapbooking is – love it! Also, the new look for the blog is fab :D Looking forward to a crafty 2013 xx

  16. Moira OReilly Says:

    What a great post … Enthusiasm oozes and has me oh so excited :) ! Thanks so much for all you and Two peas do for us

  17. Megan Anderson Says:

    I love your enthusiasm! I do wonder if it’s not that scrapbooking is less popular, but that it’s changing. Local stores might be closing because more people are shopping online. Some paper companies might not be able to make it because there are more smaller digital companies to compete with. Magazines might not be doing as well because more people are following blogs and on-line galleries. I have to wonder if the popularity is still growing, but the nature of the industry is just changing.

  18. Lisa M. Zepponi Says:

    Love the updated site! I feel energized and excited by your post! I have been on 2 peas all day and can NOT wait for the videos to start! AND I can’t wait for your weekly sketches! 2013 looks very exciting! Thanks for your hard work!

  19. Helen Says:

    Love your post and am so excited by it! All 3 of the local scrapping/stamping stores in my area have closed and it makes me so sad, but I love looking through 2peas and other online stores. Glitter Girl has inspired more than one purchase from 2peas, that’s for sure! I took Pretty Paper Party the first time and loved it. I can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve this time! Thank you for all that you do.

  20. Joy Says:

    Your site looks fab! I love what you contribute to this amazing hobby Shimelle and not just the videos and tutorials (they are awesome!) but how you are such a big cheerleader for this hobby.
    I think any scrapbooker can get excited about scrapbooking again just buy watching your ‘make everyday a scrapbooking adventure’ video.

    I’m off to share the love and let others know they inspire me. :)

  21. Laura Says:

    Shimelle, I agree completely (and have said similar things elsewhere) — support the things you don’t want to go away. I shop at Two Peas partially for the videos (very happy about year two of GG) and I’m a member of Paperclipping not just because it’s great content but also as a thank you for PRT (which I would really, really miss if it wasn’t there.) Happy New Year and I’m excited to see what’s in store. ~ Laura

  22. Jen D. Says:

    I was thrilled to hear that my favorite super hero is continuing on in 2013. Thank you!

    The 2peas video line up sounds fabulous. I can’t wait to check it out.

    I scrapped 17 layouts in less than a week, using Scrapbook Remix as my inspiration. I am a school teacher and indulged in my favorite hobby along side my six year old daughter during this little break. She now wants to make a scrapbook video, after watching your videos with me.

    I am looking forward to 2013 as well, and the great year that it will be. Happy New Year! Thanks for all the inspiration.

  23. Gilma Says:

    Can i just say that the only reason why i’m no screaming of happiness is because my two year old is napping other wise i think i would be jumping up and down in happiness,I’m so excited for 2013!

  24. Robin W. Says:

    Shimelle,

    I’m so happy to hear that Glitter Girl will be back this year—I watch your videos more than once as they are so full of inspiration.

    I also want to thank you for the links to your starting points and sketches. I use those frequently, and now it will be even easier to find them! I can’t wait to see the sketches you have lined up for this year—I agree it is an exciting year for scrapbooking!!

    Thank you!!

  25. Crystal Says:

    It took me hours to read through this article and all the wonderful sites you linked. What great new sources. You are always so very inspiring. The entire scrapbook industry is better for having you as a part of it.

  26. DawnB Says:

    Shimelle…..you inspire me to tell my story through the photos I have “just sitting in a box”. I would like to have known how my loved ones thought or their take on some event… Since that is no longer possible,I will start to tell my story to whomever wants to know…. Thank you for taking the time to share your creative talents with us all!

  27. Jenn V Says:

    This is the most awesome post! I have been back and forth with my level of inspiration this year as far as scrapbooking. I am glad I read this post. I now want to scrapbook right away. Thanks, Shimelle!

  28. Mary M. Says:

    ACK! Too much good stuff! More Glitter Girl…sketches are back…AND CHA coverage?!? I can’t handle it. =) =) =)

  29. Barb S Says:

    I am so excited about all of the wonderful things starting up that I know I will never get to sleep tonight. I have got to quit reading your blog right before bed. I have pictures printed and ready to go for projects, so am ready for the fun to continue. I have done very little scrapbooking of late because we moved recently and some health issues…I am almost starting at square one again. So glad Glitter Girl is back, too!

  30. Connie O. Says:

    Shimelle you are truly a inspiration! So glad you share your wonderful talent with us all. Look forward to the new Glitter Girl episodes as well as the weekly sketch series here. Look forward to seeing all you have in store for us. Thanks!

  31. Lorraine Reynolds Says:

    Just want to say great and inspiring post. Even over her in Australia I can feel the enthusiasm, and understand that though times are tough – there is HEAPS to be excited about. One such thing is that GG is continuing, although i had kind of guessed with your hints re announcements (then) upcoming at Two Peas. Looking forward to them,and the other series. Happy New Year all!

  32. Briel Says:

    Thank you for starting off the year with amazing enthusiasm and a positive outlook. This is why you are my go-to girl! I’m feeling more excited about this hobby than ever before; I think that it is because I’m constantly inspired online, and I have a better sense of why I scrapbook, and what I want out of it. Here is to a crazy good 2013! Go Glitter Girl, Go!

  33. betsy Says:

    woah! what an awesome post shimelle! yes! 2013 is going to be a great sbing year!

    Love your new blog look, too!

  34. Quinna Says:

    The video was FUN! Favorite adventure scrapping the Olympics!

  35. Sabine Says:

    Shimelle, you really inspire me. Thank you for all you do for the scrapbooking community! Can’t wait to see what 2013 brings for all of us.

  36. Karen Says:

    Happy New Year Shimelle! Can you believe while my kids & husband were laughing their way through old Austin Powers movies & Mr. Bean episodes and otherwise counting down the minutes til midnight on the last day of 2012 – I was happily & blissfully viewing video after video of Glitter Girl!?!?! So glad she’ll be back in 2013. I did not do as much scrapbooking last year as usual – although I completed a delightful Dec. Daily which has propelled me back to my paper-loving roots. My goal this year is to share many more layouts on my blog, and somehow find the balance with my creative sewing business. Thank you for your inspiration & looking forward to more! xo K.

  37. Dawn Cheshire Says:

    Have been hoping you’d have something amazing lined up during 2013 as I loved your previous sketch to scrapbook page feature! Loving 2 peas new schedule, plenty to get me scrapping this year!

  38. Angie Says:

    Wow, such an inspirational post Shimelle, thank you! I love scrap booking more than anything but haven’t had much time over the last few months which makes me feel really unhappy. However, I have thought about it a lot and come to the conclusion that I need to structure my days a little (not in my nature!) in order to be able to do the fun things and your post has given me the final push. You are an inspiration.x

  39. Lynsey Says:

    Hi Shimelle, loved your post! So many exciting things ahead!
    Hugs Lynsey x

  40. jane Says:

    can’t wait to get started!!

  41. Vickie Lee Says:

    My heart is racing at rapid speed from reading your post! I am excited beyond words. I retired at the end of 2012 (yippee!) and now I have all day to spend watching videos from you and Two Peas and being inspired! You have an amazing gift of writing and teaching and have changed the way I scrapbook. I also love shopping at Two Peas and have never been disappointed. Hurray for 2013 – onward and forward we go!

  42. Gina Says:

    So glad Glitter Girl is continuing in 2013! Love seeing your face in the sidebar and love the new look of your page. So many great things to look forward to in 2013! Thank you so much for everything you do. You do make me and my 10 yr old daughter who loves Glitter Girl want to go scrapbook. It’s great time we spend together. Thanks!

  43. LisaE Says:

    I can hear the excitement in your voice when reading your post. I am scrapbooking more than ever and seeing thousands of pages added to the Two Peas gallery every year – more blogs all the time. It is hard to believe the craft is declining. I have my own theory as to why many LSS didn’t make it and it is more to do with business management and customer service than the specific product they were selling but that’s just me. I love your blog and enjoy visiting and shopping at Two Peas. I blog several times a week and post videos on YouTube so the craft is more and more important in my life and more and more rewarding to do. Thanks for all you do to promote such a wonderful hobby!

  44. TheNonna Says:

    I was already excited about my scrapping in the new year-new scrap space being worked on right.this.minute. Even more excited now with all the new projects, PPP, etc.-have to work on that space all the faster now!!! Happy New Year!
    Oh, and as I was shuffling supplies & albums getting ready to start on my space over the holiday, I took note of how much I scrapped in 2012-more than the past 10 years together I think… a direct result of your inspiration Shimelle; thank you so very much!

  45. Carol Says:

    Happy New Year Shimelle! It is wonderful that your alter-ego, Glitter Girl, will be back this year at 2Peas! I was so excited to hear just that alone, and then 2 Peas has 5 other weekly videos too, which is pretty amazing. And that is great news about your weekly sketches being back. Your site and 2 Peas are favorites of mine to go to for inspiration! Thanks so much for giving us so much to look forward to in 2013.

  46. Margie Visnick Says:

    I am so excited about all of this!! Weekly sketches (YAY!!), another round of Pretty Paper Party (Double YAY!)…Thank you so much for all of the inspiration you share!!

  47. Cathy L. Says:

    Thanks for everything you do and how hard you work, Shimelle! Love your blog posts, classes, videos,etc. Thanks for all of the inspiration!

  48. Jo. Says:

    Thanks for all the inspiration over the years and here to lots more to come x

  58. Scrapdolly Says:

    I just wanted to say what a positive and uplifting post this is – but then almost every post here is,
    I have seen how the popularity of the hobby I love so much has changed in the 10 years I have been scrapping, I LOVE your ideas, I love that you and others do so much to enthuse, inspire and motivate us all, I love that you give so much in so many ways.
    Scrapping is my daily sanity, the little bit of creativity in an increasingly busy and crazy world and life and YOU are one of the people who has kept me going, kept me sane and kept me creating
    Thank you

    And I hope 2013 is an anwesoely good year for you and the boy xxxx

  59. Julia Says:

    So much to look forward too! I’ve definitely been in a scraobook rut but you’ve just got me all excited again! Happy 2013 xx

  60. Kristin Says:

    Awesome post. I am so excited for 2013. And I loved everything you did in 2012.

  61. scrappygail Says:

    What great inspiration to get the new year started. Your recommendations were just what I needed to formulate a couple scrapping objectives for this year. I’m so glad you will be back with Two Peas for 2013 and continuing to inspire our problem solving.

  62. Pam Says:

    I’m so excited! Thank you for being you!

  63. Donelda Says:

    You gave me goosebumps reading your post! love it and I am a happy returner to scrapping!! I can’t wait for all your new videos and fun you have planned. Thanks so much for re-inspiring me to play with beautiful paper, ink and stamps!!

  64. Elizabeth Ashman Says:

    Looking forward to an amazing year with Glitter Girl.
    Happy New Year, Shimelle.

  65. Caro_frenchy Says:

    thanks so much Shimelle, you blog post inspired me so much !! I wish you HAPPY NEW YEAR, full of success and scrapbooking :)

  66. Evelin Says:

    I am so glad you are returning as Glitter Girl and also looking forward to the sketches on your blog! I love your blog! :)

    Happy Happy New Year! :)

  67. SaffysMama Says:

    Love what you’ve said & what’s in store!! I completely agree, it’s going to be a great year for scrapbooking!! Love the new site look to Simelle! Well done!

  68. Keely Says:

    Shimelle, Thank you for all of your planning and executing. Keep up the GREAT work!! XOXOXOX

  69. helen Says:

    thanks for your enthusiasm, hAPPY NEW YEAR, thanks for being my inspiration! I believe it’s not scrapbooking that’s less popular, it’s rather the industry that goes with it, we’re living a worldwide crisis, and consuming always more is “out”, scrapbookers are coming back to essentials, bases : photos, storytelling, memories, I think we’re back to DIY, and less trendy products, less of “must-have”(otherwise my LO isn’t lovely));
    so cheers to scrapbooking!

  70. Jeannine H Says:

    Can’t wait for all this goodness. Regretably my local scrapbooking store has closed so I’ll be shopping for more than classes at 2 peas. I love what you all do!

  71. Linda Says:

    I enjoy the Glitter Girl posts every Wednesday. Your style is so different from what I scrapbook but I have learned so much from you. Today I used one of your layouts as a guide and it was so much fun to create. I am anxious for the new things 2013 brings in the scrapbook world. Happy New Year!

  72. Victoria Says:

    Thanks Shimelle for all you continue to do and remain excited about. The content for JYC was extensive and must have taken a lot of work and thought. Thank you for that. Looking forward to your posts from CHA.

  73. PjP Says:

    Sounds like 2013 is “go for launch.” We’re with you all the way, Shim. Where else would we be? ;-)

  74. Keri-An Says:

    Shimelle, even without all the other cool stuff – 2013 would be a great year for scrapbooking just with you alone!
    I’m sure I’m not the only one among your followers to have ever said, let alone thought this – and believe me I don’t go declaring this to every person I’ve never met – but I love you! On days when I feel I have no motivation, or mojo, or am just a little bleh – a trip to visit you in your on line world cheers me, motivates me and above all, inspires me no end… I love your enthusiasm for life in general – but this industry specifically, and it makes me want to do things in my life – not least stick pretty paper to other pretty paper in aesthetically pleasing ways! Well – that has been a long rave, huh?! I guess what I just want to say is thanks, for just being you and along the way inspiring people like me…

  75. Tricia Says:

    Shimelle,
    Honestly, YOU are the reason that I’m scrapping as much as I am right now! I didn’t have access to my scrapping materials for over a year and after I finally could get my hands on them, I was “stuck”. I discovered GG, took Pretty Paper, started watching other 2Ps videos and now I’m creating more than I ever did before! I used to hoard supplies waiting to use them on the “perfect” layout and now I’m cutting away and mixing and matching with abandon. I’m so excited about The Best of Both Worlds (my kit arrived 15 minutes ago!) and thrilled that you are going to have weekly sketches! 2013 is going to be a great year! You are an incredible “ambassador” for the scrapbooking industry! Thank you so much for all your inspiration!
