Here’s what students say about the 

Although I read and listen to other scrapbook blogs, podcasts and videos, GIS is the only paid subscription I have. The education provided by both you and the community is by far, in my opinion, the best around. And, honestly, although there might be others to which I might like to subscribe, my retirement dollars will only stretch so far, so I choose GIS because of the overall value. Besides, I think some of the smartest and smartassed women hang out there and I like to pretend I’m one of them, too! Time after time, after listening to interviews/office hours, I think to myself that we all are related: We are women who are just trying to be the best woman, wife/mother/grandmother, daughter/sister, _______fill in the blank we can be, writing the stories of our lives one layout at a time. Thanks for all the encouragement!
– Cathy R.

Your guide, host, and teacher for "Scrapbook Page Parts Idea & Design Compendium"

I’m Debbie Hodge. I’m passionate about recording memories with image and words and sharing approaches for doing this well. For the last 10 years, I’ve owned and taught at Get It, which is named after the book I wrote for F+W publishing.

I’ve worked with over 70 designers in the scrapbook industry, including recording over 300 hours of interviews with them. The result is an understanding of both the basics of building a scrapbook page and how leveraging a knowledge of page parts basics and variations eases the work and guides great-looking designs.

I am always excited to get email from Get It Scrapped because it always contains something great – announcement of a webinar, ideas for making pages, design concepts or a new class. I usually save it for last like you would a treat. You do a fabulous job with the Membership products–well, actually with everything: customer service, the webinars, just everything. The new Look Book is phenomenal! I can only imagine the hours you put in linking up all the designers with their videos and pages. I think long and hard before making buying decisions and I have always felt I’ve gotten more than my money’s worth at Get It Scrapped. – Janet K.

Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for creating an amazing site. I love the way you’ve structured the learning environment and appreciate your focus on design rather than product. I really do only a minimal amount of “scrapbooking” for my memory keeping, instead using a mix of photography, videography, art journaling and photo artistry, and heavy use of Facebook as a mini-journaling repository (with pics and journaling). You’d think the site wouldn’t be useful for someone like me who doesn’t crank out 100’s of layouts, but even something such as the layout design principles inform my other artistic pursuits. I also really appreciate the community. They are kind, helpful, never snarky or mean and there’s a reasonable number of people so you don’t feel awash in a sea of a thousand anonymous voices. – Katherine M.

I seldom get to all the content you give subscribers but I am bowled over by the quality and quantity of the content. I think this several times a month. Thank you for giving me $1.20+ for each of my dollars- just like my dad cautioned his kids to do in life. He said if we did – we’d seldom be unemployed. It worked for me in life and for you too! – Simona

I am BLOWN AWAY by the volume of content in the members area and the quality of the class materials is so fantastic. Thank you for everything you do and for keeping memory keeping and story telling alive. – Julie Cannon

With all that I’m learning I will definitely be a life-long member of GIS. I have been valiantly searching for someplace that will teach design, and I finally found it in GIS. Thank you for teaching me how to take my scrapbooking to the next level. – Laurie C

You guys are amazing! Such a plethora of knowledge and deep insight on memory keeping. Every time you have a new e-book come out I am mesmerized and can not be bothered for about 3 hours as I inhale every last piece of info!! I finish it up with so much inspiration for designing and scrapping. I absolute love it!! – Summer Christensen

I love it! SO much information and inspiration all organized, detailed, and explained so well. I absolutely love the office hours for learning about good design and how to improve. Interviews provide interesting insight into the contributor’s thoughts and process. MSD is the best deal in scrapbook education around! – Laura Kaplan

I must tell you that although at this point I am just a lurker (listening and watching without posting any layouts) I am loving and learning so much! THANK YOU to EVERYONE that contributes to making this one of the best scrapbooking investments I have made. I don’t know why I ever hesitated to join. – Cathy Roark

Masterful Scrapbook Design has the best content in the industry. Their webinars, classes, and ebooks are professional, well-written, and fun. If you are just starting out, or if you’ve been scrapbooking for years, you can always find something that will help you expand your knowledge, skill, and creativity. – Jennifer Kellogg

I love the inspiration and the product is the best value out there, much better than any of the magazines on the market currently. With the magazine industry fading quickly I see MSD filling the gap for those of us who loved our magazines coming in the mail each month. LOVE this product!! – Amy Sotolongo

I have to tell you that once a scrapper spends much time at GIS, many other sites fall by the wayside in comparison.  – Susanne Brauer

LOVE Debbie and all she does. What an amazingly creative and genuine and approachable person! – Lori Pohlman

Interesting, educational and inspirational. I love the varied viewpoints and styles of different artists and I like that it’s for both paper and digital. – Sandie Conry

Being able to interact in the office hours is what makes them so worthwhile and sets you apart from others. Others have online classes with content, but no way to participate other than a gallery and an occasional chat. you do it all. – Devra Hunt

I attend both the interview and office hours webinars and find them invaluable. I love the insight they provide and the ability to ask questions of the instructors. I also like the feedback from the office hours sessions and the friendships I’ve made there. – Marcia Fortunato

Debbie, you and your team put in so much effort to MSD and I truly appreciate it. The ebooks are extremely professional and well-written, and the webinars are informative and great fun. I think MSD is worth every cent of my monthly subscription. – Julia Colli

I love the volcano of ideas that come from MSD each week. I’m able to learn hot little tidbits that you share. They settle out and as I study them I find more bits and pieces to try. – Colleen H

I have enjoyed this hobby for many years (actually ten) but it has only been in the last year of consistent participation in the webinars that I have really grown in my design and ventured beyond the lift. Thank you. – Sue Mealiea

I think that a place where folk can get some great analysis of design is very helpful. A place where there is not a lot of hype and no popularity contest. I feel safer at MSD than anywhere, even when a piece is critiqued. I like hearing about how things could be better and I feel that people really care about that. I do not feel compelled to follow the advice, if I do not want to do so, though I often do. It’s just fun to learn and hear different opinions. Karen Poirier-Brode

I have subscribed from the beginning and have loved taking the journey with you. Thank you so much for all your ideas, support and hard work to bring us such wonderful, in depth, creative issues. I really enjoy getting to know the designers over the months and love getting to see, firsthand, their approaches and hear their and your opinions on scrapbooking topics. I love that you bring some of the same designers back again on different topics and always enjoy getting to know new ones to Masterful Scrapbook Design. – Louise Jeffries

“One of the points that really makes your content have so much value is that I can learn the principles and apply them to digital or paper or hybrid work. And not just in scrapbooking, but cards and even sewing.— Linda Lapichak

“I have been a subscriber from the very first issue and have loved it…each change you make is an improvement in my mind (though how it can get any better is beyond me!!) You have an amazing product and it is among the most useful and creative out there. I am inspired each month…” -Suzan Tiemroth-Zavala

“I have continued my membership with Debbie Hodge’s Masterful Scrapbook Design. At some point I referred to this as a class, but I’m wrong. Debbie calls it a seminar. I’m calling it the best online publication you can purchase.” -Gayl Staffler

“I am impressed by the quality and quantity of material that is available each month. It is quite a bargain, really! You have really done amazing work with your website and class offerings.” – Laura Harvatine

I love your site, really love it! I have all the PDFs on my iPad and read them while I travel. The journaling content was amazing and I’ve scrapbooked more meaningful pages in the last week than I have in a long time.- Kimberly Kalil

I have been a member of MSD since almost the start and I just wanted to tell you that you really do an amazing job each month. I love your seminars and all your classes are amazing…you love what you do, and it is apparent in the quality products you provide to us. Thank you! – Nicole Lamarche

This is absolutely amazing stuff! Thanks a million for all the effort and hard work! – Antoinette Naude

“Dear Debbie, I absolutely love your site. I have purchased your Building Pages Class, read everything free I could find here, and now I’m participating in Masterful Scrapook Design. I love your style and explanations of why. You guys are doing a bang up job of customer service and this is a really great business model. Thanks.” –Mary Nelson

“Debbie, Thank you so much for all your efforts to make this a great learning and creative experience. What I have always valued so much in your classes and website is your sincerity in wanting to help us learn what will make us better scrappers and enjoy doing it.” -Marcia Deignan

1. Canvas + 2. Photos + 3. Journaling +
4. Titles + 5. Embellishments 

These are the basic pieces. For each there are many options for choosing, editing, placing, and combining. There are go-to steps to take and break-out approaches for jazzing things up. When you have the big list of options and design implications, you can pick and choose and combine with ease.

At Get It Scrapped, a lot of the teaching we do is breaking down great pages from guest designers into implementation steps that can be replicated and recombined.


With JOURNALING, it's useful to understand 3 aspects of journaling (and within those aspects there are several subtopics). In the compendium you get details and layout examples on every subtopic. We start with JOURNALING FORMS (i.e., incident report, list, letter, prompt, quiz, story . . . ), COMPOSITIONAL TECHNIQUES (i.e., point of view, narrative and scene, dialogue, detail. . .), and JOURNALING RENDERING AND PLACEMENT (i.e., materials options, placement possibilities, and rendering techniques). Over 30 scrapbook pages by several different scrapbookers illustrate JUST THIS SECTION of the compendium. . . .

. . . And then we do it again for canvas and for photos and for title and for embellisment.

The "Scrapbook Page Parts Idea & Design Compendium" is your design how-to and idea guide to five page parts with 150+ scrapbook page examples created by over a dozen paper and digital guest designers.
