Hello Story | 12-Week Online Workshop Registration Now Open


I’m excited to announce that my 12-week online workshop, Hello Story, is back again this spring for a second run at Big Picture Classes. This class will include the exact same content as when it ran last summer.

This is a live-class meaning that it has a start and an end date. It will run from April 3rd through June 25th. Registration is now open.

Here’s what I want you to know:

  • This is a layout class. I’ll be showing all new layouts and talking about the place where design + words meet. Each week I will also include an example for taking the story structure topic and using it in Project Life as an insert for those of you who are enjoying that memory keeping style at this time.

  • Each layout will include a how-to and ideas-to-note in the weekly handout. Most will include a video overview where I walk you through the creative process.

  • Each week there will be a printable or digital elements to go along with the story structure theme for the week.

  • This workshop is not solely focused on writing. It will definitely be a part of what is addressed but I’ve decided to approach the layouts in this workshop by starting with a design idea/theme first as a way to create a storytelling foundation. I’m branching out beyond some of my tried and true techniques and playing with a different approach by starting with these fun design concepts.

Here's a look at just a few of the layouts you will be introduced to in this workshop:


Feedback from people on my Facebook page who took this workshop last summer include:

    Take this class!!!! It is absolutely amazing! The class is filled with amazing, good stuff, each and every week. While I think everything Ali does is inspiring and worthy she really outdid herself on this class.

      You will love it. You get what you put in. This is my third year and the best yet.

    2. Karen says…

      Thanks so much for getting back with me right away today!! I don't know what happened because I emailed both of those email addys. Anyway, your prompt response has been fantastic today!! I look forward to participating.

    3. Ali says…

      I sent you an email Karen - please let me know if you didn't receive it!

    4. Ali says…

      Karen - what email are you using to reach us (use ali@aliedwards.com or katie@aliedwards.com)? I just checked the inbox and don't have anything from you. I do see that you purchased the class which means that the Welcome To Class PDF was sent automatically upon payment receipt to your paypal email address.

    Will the class from the summer still be available to those of us who took it then? I didn't get to finish it and was waiting for the transcripts for the last 3-4 weeks of videos to be uploaded. I loved this class and am looking forward to finishing it - if it is still available!

    2. Ali says…

      Absolutely Maureen! There is forever access for all Big Picture Classes.

    This was an awesome class that I refer back to often. The layouts and the options for story telling are well worth the price of admission!

    I took this class in the summer and LOVED it. I wrote my review in detail along with some of the layouts I made on my blog (link below), but in just a few words I'll say- "Hello Story" is full with content and inspired some of the most meaningful layouts I created in 2013. Highly recommended.

    I'm not a traditional scrapbooker (with 12x12 layouts) I do Project Life and love to make minibooks. Is this class also interesting for me or is the focus more on traditional layouts?
