DIY Bundle is Back!

For a very limited time you can access the DIY Ultimate Bundle! This bundle is simply amazing with all the classes that are available. What I liked most about the bundle was the free bonus craftsy class and all the sewing ebooks. Sewing is a hobby that I really want to get good at but I am still a beginner and haven’t mastered my sewing machine as of yet.

By popular demand the DIY Ultimate Bundle has been brought back for two days only and once it’s gone it will really be gone so if I didn’t grab the bundle the first time now is the perfect time for you to grab the bundle and get your craft on. The bundle has everything from sewing to scrapbooking to photography to just plain crafting and so much more and is definitely worth the price of the bundle. To find out more about this awesome DIY bundle all you have to do is click here.

I just finished taking the Kelley Purkey class over at Craftsy (which was awesome by the way) and if you purchase this bundle you can grab her class for free as well as all the awesome bundle goodness. Remember the bundle is only available for a very limited time so make sure you grab it if you want to get your DIY on by clicking HERE.


Share Your Story

Let’s talk about the most difficult person to scrapbook… yourself!

First I’d like to ask you a question. Do you have a scrapbook all about yourself?

If you are like most scrappers I know the answer is probably, no.

Isn’t that strange?

Not really.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You are the person that documents memories for your family.
  • You often are the person behind the camera.
  • You don’t like many photos of yourself.
  • You feel selfish if you create pages about yourself instead of your loved ones.
  • You struggle to tell your story when you have events to scrapbook instead.
  • You’ve thought about telling your story but you don’t know where to start, or what to include.

If one or more of the things on this list feel familiar to you, you probably haven’t told your own story yet.

Let’s look at some tips that will help you tell your story.

Tell better stories on the pages you create.

Here’s a tip that will help your journaling: make connections. Make a comparison between the past and the present on a layout. This is a great way to scrapbook the present day and the past at the same time.

You can read more about this journaling technique in THIS POST.

Be in the photos.

You should include yourself in your scrapbooks, at least once in awhile! Many scrappers are the photographers of the family. Don’t let being behind the camera be the excuse that keeps you from being in front of the camera.

Here’s some ways to get photos of yourself.

  • Learn the art of the selfie.
  • Use your self-timer.
  • Hand off your camera to another person so you are in the photos too.
  • Get copies of photos from others.

Scrapbook YOU!

Scrapbook YOU! is a new class that will show you how to create an album about yourself. Capture the highlights of your life and finally share your story. Find the person that is missing from your scrapbooks!
