a peek at my recipes class-

Guess what? In just 1 week my class recipes for scrapbook success starts!! If you’re thinking about joining us (and I sure hope you do!) let me share a bit about it –

First of all, yes, this is a re-run of the original class. I had a lot of people asking for this to be re-run, and we had such a good time (and positive feedback) the first time around that we’ve brought it back. The audio files are all new, but handouts are the same.

So that said, want to know a bit about it? You can see the details, hear an audio file, and register here: http://www.bigpicturescrapbooking.com/recipes.php  and I’ll share a bit about it myself here too. What exactly are ‘recipes’ in scrapbooking? It could be the way I use lines of buttons, a specific journaling format, a sketch for my photos, and so much more! I broke class down into 4 separate areas (paper, photos, journaling, embellishments) and I also give bonus content including a handout about combining recipes. Oh yes, you can combine these ideas!

All of my layouts in class are real. What I mean is, I scrapbook normally for my classes – I don’t use stock photos, set up special photo shoots, or otherwise stage events that aren’t real in my life. Not only do I prefer to scrap my own stuff, but I also find that my layouts tend to be more useful and adaptable for my students. I primarily work with 4×6 photos (both single and double page layouts) printed out from Costco, though I do something special once in a while.

What I love about this class – and recipes in general for scrapbooking is that you can cut down on think time and maximize the creative play. Also since students share in the gallery you get to see a TON of takes on the recipes and get even more ideas. Also I think it’s important to note that substitutions are expected and very easy to do in this class. Use that stash!!

Would you like to see a whole page? Here’s a layout featured in week 2 –

One of the few single page layouts, but one that I still like to look at and touch. So about class, I can also tell you that there are LOADS of scrapbook layouts. For every recipe there is a minimum of 2 samples… and there are 4-6 recipes a week. Oh yes, the total # of pages shared is well over 50 in this 4-week class!!!

Not only that but we have a gallery, message board, chats, and of course you can e-mail me too. I’d suggest this class for any level or style of scrapbooker really, because the ideas I share can be utilized in an infinite number of ways, and customized to any style or level of experience.

If you have any questions about the class, do feel free to ask them here or via e-mail. I’d be happy to help! I hope you enjoyed these sneaky peeks – and I hope to see you in class next week!!

  1. Happy to hear about the project now class. I took the recipes class last year – loved it!!! Use the binder I made from it all the time – would love to see a part 2 class – Happy crafting!

  2. I’m super excited about your class. My birthday is Saturday and I’ve asked for it for my birthday. But if I don’t get it, it’s going to be a birthday present to myself. The class sounds so helpful. Can’t wait!

  3. I’ve been signed up for a month now. Just finished The Challenge of Me at BPS – I’m so hooked. You gals do such a great job of packing a lot of content into the classes.

  4. I’m so glad I signed up for this class–and even more excited now that I’ve gotten a sneak peek! Looking forward to learning lots of new recipes for liftable, adaptable layouts that, as you said, reduce the think time and increase the creative play time!

  5. I’m convinced – just signed up this morning! I’ll be away for about half the class, so will have lots to catch up when I’m home.
