PROJECT LIFE 101

I have finally got myself organised and prepared a class that I will be teaching at Tomorrow’s Memories on Saturday, 31st August 2013 at 1pm until 3pm.





I am running an introductory Project Life workshop-style class for anyone who is interested in finding out what all the fuss is about.

All you non-scrapbookers... this one is for YOU too!

If you have photos stuck on iPhones and hard drives that you want to get into an album to enjoy... this class is for you.

If you have school and childhood photos you are yet to organise... this class is for you.

If you have bought PL products and are overwhelmed about where to start... this class is for you.

If you used to scrapbook and lost your mojo (but still want to document your life)... this class is for you.

If you have never scrapbooked a page... this class is for you.

If you are interested but don't know if PL is for you... this class is DEFINITELY for you.

Even if you never, ever want to get into scrapbooking... this class is for you.

Come along and let me guide you through the basics of Project Life and Pocket Page style scrapbooking.  I have been using this style of scrapbooking for almost four years now to document our lives and I am very excited to be able to share my experience with you.

This workshop-style class will explain and outline everything you need to get started in this fabulous system for documenting your life.

I will talk about the various product lines suited to pocket page scrapbooking and give a demonstration of various examples that show how you can use this system. 

The class will also cover everything from how to set up a digital filing system and organise your photos to choosing a style of documenting your life that suits you best.

I will also demonstrate how to set up and get your own album started.

Finally, we will put a simple LO together and I will show you how a few simple embellishments can bring your pages to life.

Your class kit will include items from the Becky Higgins Project Life range and a sample of suitable embellishments.

For the class samples I have put together a blue toned layout suitable for boys and a pink toned layout suitable for girls. However, as class supplies will be varied, these are for illustration purposes only.  I will personally help you choose suitable cards to match your photos for your own individual layouts. 

Please bring a very basic tool kit... and I MEAN basic...  that’s part of the beauty of this system... you do not need an entire rolling scrap tote I promise!

Seriously, I am talking:
  •          scissors
  •          a craft knife and mat (the store has some mats you can borrow if you don’t have one)
  •          a pen for journaling (even if you hate your hand writing!)
  •          double sided tape
  •          glue (liquid scrap dots or similar)
  •          a stapler or Tim Holtz tiny attacher 
  •          a sanding block / tool if you have one. 


Basic, REALLY basic. ;)

Please also bring your own alpha stickers (Thickers, flat stickers or any brand of small chipboard alphas will be suitable) to complete your title. 

Please bring a selection of at least 8 to 10 6x4 photos to choose from including some that will be suitable for cropping or already reduced to 3x4 size.  These could be a series of photos of an event such as a birthday or family day out... or just a collection of your favourite photos of a child or several children.  Alternatively, if you would like to get started on a “photo-a-day” style project you are welcome to bring along a selection of photos that cover your life for a week or even a month and I will help you get started.  Coloured or black and white photos or even a mix of both will be suitable.

Please ring the store direct on (08) 9279 2183 to reserve your place.  

I hope you can join me.
