Organize, Document, Display: A Celebration Album

Isn’t it ironic that the busiest times of year are also the times we wish we had a chance to scrapbook MORE? The holidays in particular are crazy-busy, crazy-making time. How in the heck are you expected to scrapbook and document as well? The key to staying sane is organization, and in “Organize, Document, Display: A Celebration Album” popular scrapbook designer and Heidi Swapp design team member Maggie Massey will walk you step-by-step through creating a fun – and useful! – holiday organizer/album. At the end of class you will have a place to keep things like addresses, card and gift lists, receipts and recipes as well as photos, memorabilia and memories. And this album is easily adaptable to any event or holiday…weddings, birthdays, family reunions, and more. Get ready to get organized!

Memory Minutes: Documenting Your Stories in Bite-Sized Chunks

Not all memories are big, two-page, 12×12-scrapbook kind of moments. Some are just quick snaps from your phone or small bits of ephemera and mementos. So what do you do when the memories are big in your heart but the page content is small? Tammy has the answer! In “Memory Minutes,” she’ll show you ways to preserve those memories in quick mini formats that are great alternatives to traditional, full-page scrapbooking. You can incorporate your Memory Minutes projects into larger pages or keep them as a fun alternative memory project.
