Do You Hear What I Hear?

by Lain Ehmann on April 14, 2014

PennerPromo-670x446One of the biggest challenges I have in pocket page scrapbooking is that it’s so me-centric. It’s got photos I took, written from my perspective, in my “voice,” and put together by me. But if it’s supposed to be a story of our FAMILY, I’d like to include their words as well. But how?

Marcy Penner will show you how!

In this one-hour class from True Scrap Pocket Pages, Studio Calico design team member Marcy Penner goes through tips and techniques for including your family’s perspective and “voice” in your spreads (NOTE: These suggestions are great for “regular” scrapbook pages, too!). Here’s the info:

Do You Hear What I Hear? Including Your Family’s Perspectives in Your Pocket Spreads with Marcy Penner

Most scrapbookers realize that pretty soon, their scrapbooks become a reflection of their perspective on their life. And that’s great! But what about those other special people who inhabit your world? Is it possible to include more “voices” in your pocket pages? As Marcy Penner can attest, YES! Marcy will create a weekly spread in her Project Life album with a focus on adding other voices and perspectives. You’ll learn specific tips and ideas for including family members in your process, as well as where to find content that will add additional perspectives to your pages. After “Do You Hear What I Hear? Including Your Family’s Perspectives in Your Pocket Spreads,” you’ll be hearing voices – in a good way! Get this one-hour video class for only $12.95 $9 for a limited time!

Confession Time…

April 8, 2014

Confession time: Until this past spring, I totally did NOT get the pocket page trend. I am a dedicated big-page scrapbooker, and I couldn’t imagine sacrificing all that real estate for little itty-bitty pockets. Why? WHY? WHY?! But then I attended — well, I actually produced — True Scrap Pocket Pages this past January, and [...]

Why It’s Important to Capture YOUR Stories (Not Just Your Family’s)

April 1, 2014

Three years ago this week my mom passed away. We actually lost her long before her death, as she was diagnosed with early-onset dementia when she was only 69. (Ironic for the mom of a professional memory-keeper, eh?) Her death is hitting me hard right now, not just because of the anniversary, but because I’m [...]

What Do “The Walking Dead” and Jimmy Fallon Have in Common?

March 7, 2014

So, what DO “The Walking Dead” and Jimmy Fallon have in common? I’ve never watched either one. I also have never played Candy Crush, never tasted a macaroon, and don’t know who Neil Patrick what’s-his-name is. I know, I know, I’m missing out. But I hate following the crowd, and typically by the time something [...]
