Stress-Free Scrapbooking #01: Go to Press

Shimelle's number one rule for creating? There is no stress in scrapbooking. So many times we can get caught up in the right way, the right look, the right products that we forget this is something we do for fun! In her series of Stress-Free Scrapbooking classes, there are always plenty of ideas to try and projects to inspire while always encouraging you to do things your way for the perfect end result.

Over the course of this four week class, you'll bring one of your biggest scrapbooking investments to life: your printer! With a full page of printables included with each prompt, you'll have dozens of new accents to stretch your stash. Each of the twenty PDF prompts walks you through a new technique with a scrapbook page plus variations to get your mind going. You'll also see other twists as the Garden Girls put their unique spin on the techniques. With step-by-step techniques for putting the power of the printer in your hands, it's time to make your ideas go to press.

Better still, the twenty pages are designed to become an album in their own right, so you'll finish the class with a completed album documenting the Simple Pleasures for you and your family. Most exemplar pages are 12x12, but you can easily follow along and adapt to 8.5x11, 8x8 or any other size you love. The class starts with a photo preparation sheet (available for download from Tuesday, July 21st) so you can gather the pictures you want to use from the beginning -- the majority of the pages will use 4x6 prints of photos you have already taken and are needing to scrap!

So join Shimelle for four weeks filled with new life for your printer, balancing new techniques with perfect storytelling and the promise of absolutely no stress at all.

Class starts Monday, August 3rd, with prompts delivered by email Monday to Friday. Class members are also able to chat on a private message board and share their work in the class gallery for the chance to win prizes along the way.
