The Stampin' Mama Journaling 101 Online Scrapbook Course
You've asked for it....It's BACK....
and it starts on October 19th!

Register for class by Saturday, October 3rd, and receive a FREE copy of The Stampin' Mama Artwork Inspiration CD

One of the things that I hear most often about my scrapbook layouts is that people connect with the journaling. They feel that, even if they don't know me, they can connect with me and feel like they know me simply by reading the journaling that I've included on my layouts. They feel like they understand the story I'm trying to tell by reading my journaling.

The next thing that I hear most often is that journaling is really hard for most people to include on their layouts. There are many reasons that people don't include journaling on their layouts.

  • They feel like they don't have anything to say.
  • They don't know where to start.
  • They feel like they're not a writer.
  • They hate their own handwriting.

Do any of these sound familiar to you? Do you feel this way?

The truth is, there's a writer in all of us. Our photos have stories to tell. Some people just need a little help to bring that writer out to tell the story.

"The Journaling 101 Online Scrapbook Course"
is tailored for people just like you!

"A picture is worth a thousand words." We all know the saying......but do we put the words with our pictures? If you're putting your pictures in scrapbook albums but aren't telling the stories that go with them, you're missing the other half of the photos.....the words that tell the story!

If you're looking to create artistic and creative albums and want to tell the stories but need some help to get started, then I know you'll enjoy the upcoming 12 week course that I've created.

"The Journaling 101 Online Scrapbook Course" starts October 19th!

All of the classes will be archived on the site for 3 months after the course finishes so if you can't get to the challenges and homework right away, you can always go back to it. The archives and galleries for the class will be up through March 4th, 2010, so there's plenty of time to get caught up.

Each week's class will include:

  • ALL NEW never-before-seen layouts!
  • Techniques, tips and ideas to stimulate your creative process
  • Tasks to complete
  • Challenges
  • Sample pages each week from me (Erika Martin) and 3 other amazingly talented scrapbook artists (one of those is {me} 'Shazza"................ lol)
  • A gallery for you to upload your pages to so that we can all share with each other
  • An interactive forum with discussions on each week's work
  • PDF files with all of the course outlines so that you can print them out or save them to your computer for future use
  • One-on-one email correspondence with me (Erika Martin) if you need help with any of the tasks

If you're already a scrapbooker or even if you've never scrapbooked before.....this course has something for everyone! It doesn't matter where you live or what you scrapbook with, this course has been created for everyone!
