There are so many fun things heading our way.
First up, on January 31st is the next True Scrap production, Truth Scrap! This one day online, live event will focus on the hows and whys of scrapbooking your faith. I’ve seen a couple previews of class samples, and they look amazing! If you are into art journaling or faith-booking, this is the event for you.
This will be the first True Scrap production I won’t be able to attend. Which I am rather bummed about. But I’ll keep my ear to the ground and let you know which ones my scrappy friends really love!
Also coming up real fast is the next Layout a Day challenge, which starts February 1st. The theme of this year’s LOAD is “Once Upon a Time… Celebrating the Stories and Books of Our Youth.” As an avowed book nerd from a very early age, I’m excited to see where February’s month of prompts will take us. Lain usually comes up with some great, thought provoking ideas. I’ll be posting my daily layouts here, as well as on Flickr, so you’ll get to see how creating a page a day works. I think you’ll be surprised at how quickly you start to scrapbook once you’ve gotten into the groove of creating a page daily.
My book is almost done. I’m doing one final edit to check for errors and unclear sentences. I want beginning scrapbookers to understand what I’m trying to tell them! This book is intended specifically for the beginning scrapbooker; it lays out the process for creating a page from start to finish based on three common starting points. It’s very definitely process based, rather than project based.
By the end of February, I should have a class based on the book ready for sale. That will include three process videos, worksheets and printable PDFs, and possibly layered photoshop templates for the digitally inclined. If I do include the layered templates, I’ll probably include another video on how to use them. Maybe. I’m still finalizing details on the class. Also, there will be a bit of instructor interaction, with review of up to three layouts that the student produces.
That’s a lot of excitement for one day, don’t you think? I think I’m going to go calm down by doing my December Project Life pages. Yep. I do find scrapbooking therapeutic, don’t you?
