Hello. This is Jana. My passion for documenting life started a LOOOOOONG time ago. Life is precious. I wanted to do everything that I could to capture and record our family’s memories. In this day and age, we are lucky to be able to record our memories in lots of different ways. I was a traditional scrapbooker for many, many years but switched to digital scrapbooking about 8 years ago and haven’t looked back.
I made the switch for several reasons. Each of my three children have their own albums. I found myself recreating the same page for each of their albums and it was very time consuming. Digital scrapbooking allowed me to create the page once and print it off three times for each of them. Having children in our house, always meant that I needed to put everything away after each creative session because they would get into my “stash”. I love being able to open up a document on computer, work on it for a few minutes and then come back to it later. There is no clean-up involved.
When I first started dipping my toes into the digital scrapbooking world, I was a little skeptical. However, I learned a few basic tools and was immediately hooked. Digital scrapbooking has allowed me to be a more efficient scrapbooker while still fulfilling my need for creativity. It has become my favorite way of memory-keeping and I love escaping into my own little creative world.
I am excited to be offering a brand new class Digital Scrapbooking 101 at Creative Passion. I have loved teaching digital scrapbooking for the last two years and this is my first introductory class. I am SO excited to share my passion with others who are looking to try digital scrapbooking or who would just like some more tools in their digital toolbelt.
Digital Scrapbooking 101 starts on Monday, September 30th and will run for three weeks. There will be six lessons. In each lesson, students will be able to look over my shoulder and watch as I explain how I create a page from the ground up. At the completion of this course, students will have the tools they need to enjoy a lifetime of digital scrapbooking.
I would love to have you join me in class. You can read about all of the details here. I am also excited to give away a spot in Digital Scrapbooking 101. Please leave a comment below before Monday, September 23rd for a chance to win.
I hope you join me in class and we can escape together into a creative world of digital memory-keeping.
