Yas is the second contributor to the Scrapper’s Dozen. Did you see her secret ingredient in the video?
I have to admit that I didn’t know Yasmine, just a few months ago. So, as I discovered her, I hope you will also do the same.
“I started digital scrapbooking in 2009, when my son was born, then, in 2011, I created my first kit for the birth of my daughter. That is what got me started as a designer the next year.”
Paper or Pixels
“In the past, I have tried traditional paper scrapping, but I found that it was too limited since I would often be missing some supplies for what I wanted to do.”
How do you do it?
“In my kits, I tried to include as many personal elements as possible, so I will often take photos. And of course, I will use my own kits to scrap since I create them to my own liking.”
“My style has changed over time. When I started, I was mostly creating realistic kits, but since a few months, I am using more and more drawn element.”
Likes and dislikes
“When i started, I didn’t like to do papers, but that changed. Now, I love it. I love searching for the perfect pattern, find a texture, play with the brushes. The longest process is the extraction of my personal elements.
“The colors I use in my kits are just following my own preferences. You will often find blues and purples, but rarely pinks because I can never find a way to use that color in layouts.”
“Don’t eat me”
“This kit was triggered by my love of black cats. Since I am allergic to cats, the only way to get close and personal with them is through scrapbooking!”
In the kitchen
In the Scrapper’s Dozen video, I used Yasmine’s kit to wrap some cat food (maybe I should have shown my cat too). Do you recognize the paper used?

Did you watch the videos for the Scrapper’s Dozen yet? Yasmine told me that the tip I share in the video #1 is the same thing she showed her mom who is starting in digital scrapbooking.
