Episode 194: The Importance of Scrapbook Community w/ Allie Trumpower

September 15th, 2022

In this episode, Kristin sits down with Allie Trumpower to chat about her upcoming free event: Scrap School Summit (register FREE at

The conversation immediately dives into the importance of our creative community and why creating an online event that anyone could join in on -- for free -- from anywhere in the world. This event has an incredible lineup (including Kristin) of speakers, and Allie talked about the different awesome things that attendees will get to learn through the event!

A few of the topics we got into during this episode:

  • Why having dedicated time to creating can be so important
  • The different ways in which we can learn from people who's style is different from our own
  • In-Person v Online Events -- the pros and cons of each. (With the announcement that Awesome Ladies Live 2023 will be on July 15 & 16th, 2023 here in East Lansing, MI!)
  • A tangent into K-Pop scrapbooks and why K-Dramas are amazing for learning more about storytelling structure

About Allie:

Allie has been scrapbooking as long as she can remember – what started as a creative way for some “mother daughter time” quickly became a career when Allie discovered that she would love to design products for scrapbookers and creatives. Armed with a graphic design degree, Allie opened up Allie Scraps and designs printable (and some physical!) products for scrapbookers, planners, and bible journalers.

Always a fan of “getting messy,” but not liking the clean up, Allie created her line of printable “Art Starts” so she (and others, of course!) could get the messy, painty look without the actual… mess.

Allie is a fan of starting art journals and notebooks, but is super bad at finishing them. She’s also looking forward to this summit so she can learn even more ways to actually… FILL a notebook.

Oh and if you wanna know some personal details: Allie lives in Ohio with her husband and two little boys. Other than creating in any form, she also loves The West Wing, cozy sweatshirts, and brownie batter M&Ms!
