Free “Imperfect” Scrapbooking Class Coming Right to YOU!

by Lain Ehmann on March 18, 2014

photo 2 copyI love teaching.
I love video.
I love scrapbooking.
I love imperfection.
And I love FREE!

Combine all those together and you can bet that I’m in seventh heaven.

Yeah, the rumors are true… I’ll be teaching a two-day FREE scrapbooking class on May 19-20 on CreativeLIVE.com.

If you’re not familiar with the site, CreativeLIVE broadcasts awesome business, photography, and now crafting classes to an international audience, for free, LIVE (get that from the name — LIVE?) over the internet. They kicked off their scrapbooking classes with Becky Higgins last fall, and I’m absolutely thrilled to have been asked to teach on one of my favorite topics… imperfection. :)

Actually, they asked me what I wanted to teach and that’s what I chose. It’s a topic I feel passionate about — we hamper ourselves so much when we strive for perfection and then hold ourselves in low regard when we can’t live up to the air-brushed pseudo-reality we see around us. And this is just as true in scrapbooking as it is in other areas of our lives. So, let me introduce:

Scrapbook YOUR Story by Lain Ehmann for CreativeLive!

On May 19-20, I’ll teach you how to:

-Uncover your true motivations for scrapbooking (it’s usually not about the products — or the photos!)

-Practice story-based scrapbooking

-Use your smart phone camera to get photos you love AND that reflect REAL LIFE

-Embrace the craziness of your life that makes you and your family unique — and that breathes spirit and energy into your scrapbook pages

After spending two days with me, you’ll love your pages and your albums — and your memories — even more!

Are you ready to sign up to join us? (Did I say it’s free?) Just go here –> YES, I’M IN!

The photo above was taken last week when an amazing photographer Andrew and my CL producer, Elizabeth, came to visit on a very snowy day. We laughed and laughed – it was so very fun! I kind of like being a diva and have them check the lighting and make sure my hair is all in place (good luck with that one – at one point Andrew was tempted to use some gaffer’s tape to hold down my curls that kept springing free!).

photo 1 smallThe funniest part was when they moved the sofa to get better light and underneath we discovered five marbles, a Skittles wrapper, and some popcorn. So much for the perfect housekeeping! (They told me about one teacher they went to film who had her husband re-grout the kitchen before they arrived. I said, “Re-grouting, and I couldn’t even be bothered to vacuum under the couch! Although I did make sure the guest bathroom had toilet paper…”) Such is my life. :)

Anyway, I would love to have you join us in May. It’s fun. It’s free. It’s inspirational. And there will quite possibly be popcorn.

    Lain, is the broadcasting of this class nonstop for 8 hours on both days? If it is, is it possible to pause the broadcast? The class sounds like perfectly great fun and perfectly informative, but I need more info before I sign up. Thank you.

    Hi Barb – This is Kelli, Lain’s assistant. The Creative Live class is livestreaming so I’m not sure if it can be paused on the user’s end. You can contact Creative Live directly at support@creativelive.com. They will run replays so you can see what you may have missed. It is free to watch live and the scheduled replays, so hopefully you will be able to join us even if for just a little while. Hope to “see” you there.
