Layout Previews | Yesterday & Today

If you're curious about the kind of layouts we'll be making in my 12-week Yesterday & Today workshop at Big Picture, this post is for you.

One of the biggest things you'll likely notice - there's a lot of words. Bring on the words.

Here's a peek at some of the layouts (in this class there's one layout per week):

I hope you can join me! If you'd like to read more go here or here. Registration is open through January 5th here. Class begins December 30th.

Look for a class giveaway coming this weekend!

    Hi Ali
    I see you do a lot of graphic design type work with words in this course. You use different types, sizes and alignment as your embellishments... Would you be teaching/advising on how best to combine different fonts, etc. to create a visually pleasant page?

    Oh, and on that occasion, there is a CD on Amazon with your fonts but it doesn't show which fonts are included - could you help with a bit more info/images on that? Really thinking of buying it but am not sure what I'll get:-)

    Thanks!

      Morning! This class includes all the downloads and elements I use in the layouts (for both hybrid + digital scrapbookers). I don't really talk about design issues in this class as that's not really the focus - it's more on the storytelling perspective. You can definitely learn from the examples :).

      Let me take a look at that CD - it was made a number of years ago now.

    Oooohhh - this is "vintage" Ali! Reminiscent of the days of "ephemera of my life", etc. Lovely, for sure. :))

    I haven't decided to take your course yet. I already know "words" are important. I love journaling. My problem is getting my husband to journal. I am doing album for his 85th birthday. I want him to journal about the things he loves, clothes, pens (fountain, collector pens) and much more. He loves to tell stories but when I ask him to journal, he gets all solemn, serious and way to short.
    I think my work for this coming year will be "finish." I am working hard to go through family boxes, sort the data and scrap book the family history. Thank YOU, thank You, for telling me I do not have to scrap chronologically.

      Judy I had this problem with my grandad and decided to just tape him talking and transpose it to writing later. I conducted a mini interview - had a few questions ready to get him going and it worked a treat. Some people are just not writers and need a little help :)

      Judy, you will love this class. I took it last year, and I am still in the progress of working on the album. There are some pages, I used over and over. I read the comment from the other lady and yes, have him record the words. There is a software that will translate, it is voice recognize and will convert sound into type. The blind and some progressive offices use it. All is left is editing and check spelling for the correct usage of the word. But, get the stories recorded. This class makes you think about genealogy and the stories that go with it. Enjoy the class.

    Hmm, you have reminded me that some of these are still work in progress from when I took the class! Interesting that some of them I have done over and over though with different subjects. Loved this class, highly recommend it :)

    This look amazing! I am still on the fence since I have no pictures of childhood with me, they are all at my parents and they just not have a way to get them to me right now, even if I got them a scanner, they are pretty technologycaly challenged....
