This week, we're discussing what we would do differently if we could start our hobby all over again. Just a note: In this show, we neglected to announce the winner of the Get Messy giveaway from two weeks ago!! The winner is listener, Karen Price. Congratulations Karen! To enter a new giveaway to win Ready, Sketch, Go! Volume 1, 2 and 3 - leave a comment in our Facebook group, The Scrap Gals Community! We'd love to get to know you there!
A recent thread in our community sparked this episode. What are some things you really should never say to a scrapbooker? We talk about the comments our community members shared as well as our reactions to those comments and any similar experiences we've had. This is a fun episode that we hope almost everyone can relate to, even if it's only through vicarious outrage rather than personal experience.
This week, we are chatting with Lauren and Caylee of the Get Messy Art Journal Community. We discuss their classes and membership as well as the intersection of art journaling and scrapbooking. If you're interested in art journaling or just want to hear about more opportunities for creativity, then you definitely need to listen. Even better? Lauren and Caylee are offering all of our listeners a coupon and one special listener will win a giveaway of a one year membership to the Get Messy community. You have until October 12, 2016 to enter the giveaway by leaving a comment on our site in the notes section for this episode.

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.

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. To support the show, donate $5 at thescrapgals.com. Thanks to each of you who have already donated!
This week, our guest, Jennifer Wilson of Simple Scrapper, shares ideas from her new book, "The New Rules of Scrapbooking: Crafting With Your Photos Can Be Simple."

For each donation of $5, we will send a link to an exclusive video podcast by The Scrap Gals (in late October).
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.
