Getting to Know Rosalie Vos Tulp

Today we are talking to Rosalie Vos Tulp, one of our peers here at Scrapaneers. Rosalie shared a little bit about herself, as well as a few of her favorite layouts.

 

Tell us a bit about yourself, your life (including how long you have been digiscrapping)

I am an Iowa Farm Girl who fell in love with and married a Canadian Hockey player.   We lived in Michigan, Oregon, and Manitoba and then moved back to Iowa where we currently live.    We have 3 kids, which you will see on many of my scrapbook pages.   In early 2016,  I started a new job at the local university working as an academic adviser.

I have been creating photo albums and journals since I was little.    I have a really great album for the 80s; complete with a quilted cover that I completed after our family trip to Washington, D.C.  I have been officially scrapbooking since 1999 when my oldest son was born.    I was not happy with the baby albums available on the market.   They were so canned and not unique.     In 2008, I took a digital scrapbook class online and I immediately loved the flexibility that digital gave me.

What is your personal scrapbooking mantra?

Am I supposed to have a mantra?    I would guess, that I think it’s important to do what makes you happy.   Choose photos, papers, and embellishments that make you smile.     I find that my favorite pages are the pages where I made choices based on supplies that I loved.

What do you do to fit scrapbooking into your schedule?

Since my schedule has recently changed,  I am still working to figure that out.  I know that I regularly forgo any house chores, laundry, dishes, etc.,  in favor of sitting down at the computer.    I often have my laptop out when my family is watching tv or a movie on Nexflix.   I try to steal a few moments whenever I can.

How would you describe your style?

I would describe my style as eclectic or ever changing.       I lean toward layered pages, but my pages are not complete without some paint.    I also love to create great blended pages with photo masks.

What programs do you use for scrapping and photo and supply organization?

I use Photoshop Elements 13 and I’m very satisfied with what PSE can do for me.  I am always learning about more features hidden in the program.     I use ACDSee for organizing my digital supplies, but I have been really bad about organizing on a regular basis.    I will admit that my supplies are a mess, I often stick with 1 kit or a specific designer, because it’s to hard to search through all my miscellaneous folders.  I have really been impressed with what Lightroom can do in terms of photo editing and organization.    That might be my next software purchase.     I also need a font manager, those are a little out of control as well.

What is something you’ve learned over the years as a digital scrapbooker that has helped you immensely?

The scrapbook community has become my virtual friends.    I know that I can always find answers to my questions, encouragement and inspiration in the scrapbook galleries and forums, specifically the Scrapaneers forum.   Never be afraid to try new things and ask questions; the scrapbook community is very friendly and supportive.     The quality of my pages has improved because of wonderful teachers who provided feedback and guided me to make changes.    Play, ask questions, watch tutorials, then play some more.

    Love her style. She seems to do a lot of the same layouts that I like to do with blending masks and a lot of focus on the photos.
