This week, we are discussing the end of an era and the closing of one company in the scrapbook industry and a "controversial" e-mail and video that got a lot of people excited this week. We also discuss what's going on with the two of us and what we have coming up the rest of this year. For more about The Scrap Gals and to show your support with a donation, visit us at www.thescrapgals.com.
This week, we have a discussion with listeners Tiffany Brand and Adrienne Hogan in response to a thread posted in our community in follow up to last week's show about "The New Rules of Scrapbooking." We discuss a wide variety of topics including how much more difficult it is now for new people to learn about scrapbooking vs. the days of home parties, scrapbook stores, multiple magazines and more people participating in the craft. We also discuss bridging the gap between scrapbookers who participate in online communities and those who do not. We hope you enjoy this thought provoking episode.

This week, our guest, Hannah Lemieux, joins us to discuss why we seldom see double page layouts on design team blogs, social media and other industry inspiration. We know many of you LOVE double page layouts so this show is just for you. We're examining why there is often a disconnect between what we're creating at home and what is offered in the industry as inspiration. We discuss how varying approaches to scrapbooking greatly affect our process and end result (our layouts) and specific ways we can translate the inspiration currently offered into something we can use. To join in on the conversation about this topic, visit us at www.thescrapgals.com or join our Facebook group, The Scrap Gals Community.
