Today I’m excited to announce that registration is open for Me: The Abridged Version for Project Life®.
It’s a new twist on an old idea: tell the story of you, from A to Z, in an encyclopedic format, and do it using the Project Life system.
We’re talking cards, pockets, stories and photos. And we’re talking about my favorite subject: you.
That’s right ladies (and, if I may be so bold, gentleman who scrapbook too), it’s all about telling your story. I know, I know… you might be thinking, “Okay, Cathy… I did a page about me once. I’m good.” Or maybe, “I LOVE this idea. Already did it once before. So, yeah… pass.” But I’m here to tell you, after having just completed this album (my 5th volume since 2005), I feel like this is one of the most important albums I make. I am never going to not preach the value and importance of the memory keeper who documents her own story.
In this four-week class, we’re going to brainstorm, we’re going to write and we’re going to take or gather photos. And when we’re done, we, or rather you, are going to have a truly authentic slice of your life. And even if you’ve done this before, I can tell you this: a lot can change in a few years. True, there were many constants, things that will always have a place in any CZ A to Z album, but things in my life are changing. Time brings things that are new. Some are joy filled. Some more bittersweet. But when I finished this album in preparation for creating this workshop, I just sighed and felt so grateful for the chance to share this story. My story.
Of course, no CZ Design class would be complete without some technical learning, right? In class, I’ll show you how to create your own journaling cards using the class templates if that’s your thing. Otherwise, every card is designed as a PDF printable so you can handwrite your entries. Easy peasy. And, you don’t have to write an epic volume for each entry. The key here is that it is an abridged version. Snippets tell the story.
BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE! Even though I’m really pushing for you to do an album all about you, I’m also offering all designs to create a You: The Abridged Version album (about someone you love) or an Us: The Abridged Version (about whoever comprises your ‘us’).
AND STILL THERE’S MORE! I am partnering with Studio Calico for this class and if you don’t want to print all of the class cards at home, you can purchase pre-printed card packs which feature the Title Cards, Closing Cards and Alphabet Cards for the album. The journaling cards will all be printed from class files. More information will be coming from Studio Calico soon! Learn more about the class supplies and card options here.
EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT: To save 15% off the workshop price, enter the code AtoZielske15 at checkout. Code expires on 9. Note: if you registered earlier this week, there was a discrepancy in the discount that I offered to the tune of .85 cents. I would recommend emailing Big Picture Classes and asking for the adjustment.

I would love to have you join me in October for Me: The Abridged Version for Project Life. If you have any questions or comments, let me know. I’m happy to answer. Email me or leave comment. A pre-class is available immediately upon sign-up including a video message from me plus access to a private Facebook group, so we can start talking about the workshop before the actual start date.
See you in October!
