Home Decor inspired scrapbooking: Week 3

We hope you had a good time watching all the CHA sneaks rolling in!  While at CHA, I loved seeing all of the home décor projects designers had created with scrappy supplies.  Which brings us to today’s topic—more on home décor and scrapbooking!

Today, we’re sitting down with the queen of vintage chic, Becky Novacek, to find out how she marries her home décor and scrapbook skills!

We asked Becky to tell us more about her home décor and scrappy skills:

  1. How would you describe your scrapbooking style?

Very imperfect, homespun, usually simple. Always focused on the photo/s and a brief thought that is usually directed to my family or friends.

  1. What is your creative process for decorating? Is it similar or different to your process for scrapbooking?

Absolutely! I start with a basic idea of what I want the finished product to look/feel like. Colors and textures are a big part of my process. But I guess when it comes down to it, it's all about the feeling or vibe.

  1. How do you transfer design concepts in scrapbooking to home décor?

 I think color and texture are huge, but I think another big part of it is expression and personal style. Allowing your personal style to come through, whether it be a little worn and well loved, or clean and simple, it can be expressed in crafting, scrapbooking, home decor and your wardrobe. For me, there are definite common threads throughout.

  1. Are there any items you’re coveting in home décor? How about scrapbooking?

Right now, I'm coveting a new farmhouse sink for my kitchen. Countertops too. But, I've learned that pacing myself with home improvements is very important! I am loving the new JBS products. I have a little box of goodies waiting for me and I can't wait to dive in!

Here’s a project that represent Becky’s signature style:

And check out how that style appears in Becky’s beautiful home:

She was always drawn to paper and photos, so when Becky Novacek was first exposed to scrapbooking, she was hooked. In 2004, life changed and paper crafts became much more than a hobby, it became a daily creative endeavor. Although life has changed yet again, and now photography plays an important role in her life, she still finds time to scrapbook and play with paper. Becky has been published in BHG Scrapbooks Etc, Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbook Trends, Memory Makers, Cards, Legacy, Somerset and back in the day, Autumn Leaves Books. Currently, Becky serves on the design teams for Jenni Bowlin Studios and Fiskars. And she co-authored Picture Perfect: 129 expert tips for shooting stellar portraits with fellow photographers Elisha Snow and Kelly Noel.

Becky lives in Fremont, Nebraska with her husband Tom. They have 4 grown, married children and 8 grandchildren. She enjoys photography, paper crafts, flea marketing, reading, lunching with friends and spending Sunday afternoons in the summer around the pool with her whole family.
