Today Jess' speaks with Andrea Williams, one of her scrapbooking friends in real life! Jess first met Andrea at Crop and Create Markhamin 2015. Andrea has been completing a December Daily project since 2013 and also completes traditional layouts, Project Life, and Week In The Life. In this conversation we discuss the products she is excited for this year, how she completes layouts during the month of the December and how she incorporates memorabilia into her pages. This is a special "memory keepers in cars getting coffee"! Andrea was a great sport to record our conversation in a car and we hope you enjoy Andrea's awesome positive energy and outlook on scrapbooking as much as we do. Enjoy the show!

Welcome back to season 3 of Pocket Talk! On today's show, I speak with Ali Edwards and Katie Jaeger about documenting the holidays. Specifically, we chat about their upcoming in-person crop, the December Daily Prep Party. In our conversation, we discuss the motivation for organizing this type of event, how it differs from Story Camp and what to pack, if you are attending. If the December Daily Prep Party isn't is the budget this year, don't fret! Ali and I discuss some of our initial plans for our 2018 December Daily projects. Notably, the 2018 December Daily order period starts Thursday September 6th & the last day to register for the December Daily Prep Party is Monday September 20th. Enjoy the show!

On today’s show, Jess reconnects with Jessica Upton, scrapbooker and business owner of ColorCast Designs. In our conversation, we reflect on the projects and layouts we created in 2017 as well as our crafty intentions as we move forward in 2018. Jessica and I both reveal our One Little Word as well as discuss our thoughts on the Patone Colour of the Year and what trends we hope to see in the scrapbooking industry in 2018. This is a great show for memorykeepers who are curious how others deal with their Project Life albums at the start of a new year if they are, air quotes, not caught up from the previous year.

Enjoy the show!

On today’s show I am speaking with the fun, fantastic, technique focused, Vicki Boutin. Living with her husband and two kids in St Catherines Ontario Canada, Vicki has been scrapbooking for more than 15 years. In 2006, Vicki won the Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame. Currently is a contributing writer at Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine, and travels the world teaching scrapbooking classes. Recently, Vicki became a product designer releasing her own mixed media line with American Crafts. Full disclosure, I could listen to Vicki talk for hours about her creative process; and in this interview, I let her take the stage to do just that. Vicki’s passion for memory keeping and fondness for this creative community is infectious. I am so priviledge to know Vicki and to call her my friend. I hope you get as inspired to try something new, as I did by our conversation. Enjoy the show!

On today's show, Jess speaks with fabulous roundtable guests: Jennifer S Wilson, Krista Wells & Barbara Picinch. In our conversation we chat about how we documented 2016 and the plans we have for the new year. We also discuss what is making us happy with our memory keeping right now.

On today’s show, Jess speaks with the sweet and stylish, Emma from the website Create the Simple. Living in the UK with her husband, Emma works in London in finance and carves out time for memory keeping on evenings and weekends. Currently she creates for Ali Edwards Design and Kellie Stamps. What I love about Emma and her layouts, besides her clearly defined colour schemes, is how she has adapted her process & pages to fit her memory keeping goals. In our discussion Emma tells us her favourite fonts, why she switched from 6x8 to 6x12 and when she is most productive. It was a pleasure to talk with Emma! Enjoy the show!

On today’s show, Jess' speaks with designed focused and determined, Steffie Van Den Akker from the Netherlands. When she is not running after her two young sons, Julius and Oskar, or spending time with her partner Mark, Steffie volunteers as a photographer at a local hospital where she takes pictures of parents and their premature babies. Currently on the Laurel Lane Design team, what drew me to Steffie was her clean and modern Project Life Pages she shares on her instagram account. In this episode, Steffie discusses her love of white cardstock; how she documents family life in her monthly layouts and why she uses minimal supplies. This is great conversation for anyone interested in how to find their own unique pocket page style!
