Layout a Day 211

Inspiration. It’s Everywhere!

What does inspiration mean to you?



Unlimited ideas?

GREAT ideas?

In the Layout a Day challenge for February 211, we’ll be discussing what inspiration is, where it comes from, what feeds our own individual creative process, and how we can see the ordinary through a new lens (literally!)

Along the way, we’ll have daily prompts (follow or not, up to you!), challenges, prizes, our Flickr gallery, and special guest stars including:

  • Julie Comstock, the visionary behind Cosmo Cricket!

  • Anna Aspnes, digital diva and instructor extraordinaire!

  • Stacy Julian, the coolest of the cool!

  • Becky Fleck, without whose PageMaps many of us would never be able to scrap!

I hope you’ll join me in this fantastic 28-day voyage. It will change your scrapping — and maybe even your life!

Sign up now! Registration for 28 days of fantasmagorical fun is only $30.

LOAD is NOT your typical scrapbooking “class.” You’ll receive daily prompts and lessons on the topic of inspiration, and a lot of interaction and information in the form of blog posts, audios, videos, and interviews. During the month we will focus on the process of scrapbooking and how to enhance our own individual styles. The daily prompt might encourage you to use a particular product or sketch, or to document a specific topic, but we’re not all working on the same project — some people ignore the prompts or pick and choose among them, and that is OKAY!

In other words, if you are looking for the “cut a piece of patterned paper to 2×4″ and adhere it to the left side of the page” type of instruction, LOAD is NOT for you. Email me and I can suggest some alternate classes.

JUST ADDED! LOAD Q&A Call on Friday, 1/21 at 1 PM Eastern. (Click on link for more info).

    this will be exciting. I have been doing a LO every other day in January and on weekends I do a few a day. This has already helped my style evolve and shine thru. I can’t wait to see what turns out here.
