I’m launching a new self-paced e-course this coming Friday, Scrapbook Your Year, designed to help memory keepers take a simplified approach to a year-long scrapbooking project. And maybe you’ve noticed (or rather, NOT noticed) any sharing of Project Life-style pages by yours truly in 2016. That wasn’t necessarily on purpose.
After finishing my book in 2015, I was fully planning on diving in and doing the exact same type of album for 2016. I really was. As January and February came and went with no completed pages, I thought, “No big deal! I have a system in place and I’ll come back to them and knock ’em out!” Then March came and went. Then April. And in May I said to myself, “You know what to do, so let’s put your system to the test and see if it really works.”
I sat down and designed a whole new series of templates (based on the same design as my Minimal Basics series, but with customizable month titles and journal cards dropped in.) And then I got an idea: I’m going to show people how I do this in real time and turn it into a workshop to truly demonstrate that you can be anywhere in your year and still get started in creating a timeless, elegant record of your life.
This process is the new workshop, Scrapbook Your Year, and in the course, you’ll get the materials and the inspiration to get started documenting this year, or any year. Whether you are a traditional pocket page scrapbooker or if you are creating a digital book like I am, this new class hopes to inspire you to worry less about saving it all and realize that a book like I am suggesting will truly serve as a highlight reel of your life.
I wanted to share my January pages today, in advance of the class launch, and I’ll continue sharing my pages in the coming weeks. The full course description will be live on Friday and the class will launch for 10% off.
For now, here’s a look at the first month from my album.
The class templates are set up to customize your month titles with whatever font you like, either in an outline style or solid style. These cards are included as printables for traditional pocket page scrapbookers.
In the workshop, after we learn all about organizing and getting set up for a year-long project, I show you in real time how I start with a month’s worth of photos and boil it down to the pages you see here.
This class is not about saving every last detail of life and yet the end result is something that I am so excited to see. I took this approach for my 2015 book and truly love the finished product.
Again, the full course description plus a course Q&A will be posted here on Friday.
This is how I am scrapbooking my year. I still will make stand-alone pages. I still will make other album projects. But these pages represent the beginning of my year-long, monthly document of life. It makes me geeky about scrapbooking again and that, my friends, is called sustainable memory keeping.
