during the month of march i'm teaching a seminar over at masterful scrapbook design.

here are the details!


We’ve heard a lot about  ”finding inspiration” for your pages from store shelves, magazines, fashion, websites and many other resources. It’s time to get specific about just how we can show YOU resources and methods for finding, gathering, and specifically translating inspiration to the scrapbook page.


about ideas and inspiration. Do ideas just “arrive” if you think hard enough? What’s the role of past experiences and inspiration from other sources? What are the aspects of a piece that can inspire?
finding and organizing inspiration. In this section we talk about the many sources there are for inspiration and methods (digital and hard-copy) for organizing your inspiration pieces.
viewing an inspiration piece. Go beyond passive viewing of your inspiration pieces with the techniques described here for apprehending and translating inspiration to the page.
applying inspiration to the scrapbook page. Just as you can take inspiration from various elements of a piece, so, too, can you apply inspiration to individual elements of the page. We’ll look at titles, journaling, layout, photo treatments, and embellishments and how inspiration can be directly applied to them.

Guest teachers

Teachers contribute to the seminar, participate in live webinars, write “designer notes” and annotate layouts for inspiration galleries. This month, learn with  Paula Gilarde, Celeste Smith, Lisa Dickinson, and Anna Aspnes.
