First Practice | National Scrapbook Day 10k

AE_FirstPractice_CloseUp

Today I'm participating in Big Picture Classes National Scrapbook Day 10k.

They've got a goal to have 10,000 scrapbook layouts posted on Instagram today. Love that.

Here’s how to join the fun:


  • Register for our National Scrapbook Day “10k” for FREE here.

  • Log in to our private online classroom on Saturday, May 3, every hour from 9:00am PT to 6:00pm PT for a new quick-scrapbooking tip from one of our 10 amazing instructors.

  • Follow @bigpictureclasses on Instagram to keep up with the fun and be eligible for our sponsored prize giveaways.

  • Create as many pages as you can on National Scrapbook Day and post them to Instagram, using @bigpictureclasses tag and #NSD10k hashtag. Every full layout image you post (no close-ups or detail shots) is an entry into our random prize drawings.

  • If you don't have a smartphone or Instagram account, you can upload layout images to the classroom gallery instead for some alternate prizes.

  • Deadline for uploading layouts is Monday, May 5 at 11:00pm PT. Prize winners will be announced in the classroom and on our Instagram feed on Tuesday, May 6.


PLEASE NOTE | Your Instagram account must be set to public, at least for the duration of this event, in order for your posted layouts to be eligible for our prize giveaways. (We won't be able to see them otherwise.)

In addition Studio Calico has a fun kit available today. Here's a peek at that kit:

Here's a look at the layout I created for this event using the Sugar Rush kit from Studio Calico:

TIME SAVING TIPS



  1. Stick with one, 4x6 photo.

  2. Use number-based list journaling to help you tell the story.

  3. Include a grid to hold your content.

  4. Don't forget the date! One too many times I have looked back and forgotten to add the date and it always bums me out.


And one more: COPY YOURSELF.

Do you have a layout you've made before that you love? There are no police out there that are going to come after you if you use the same technique, idea, sketch/foundation, products, etc. again and again.

Here's another layout I created using the Sugar Rush kit from Studio Calico: Sweet Anna Girl
