Find out who is the Surprise Guest Blogger TODAY!


I know I told you guys about the Lain Ehmann's Layout A Day Class I am taking called Past Perfect.  Well, I contacted Lain Ehmann, who is teaching it, and asked her if she would write a little something-something for you guys.  I was so excited when she said "yes".

So, without further ado, here is the fabulous Lain Ehmann to tell us a bit more about the Layout A Day Class:
Do any of these describe you? 
It’s the new year, and the photos are piling up on your hard drive or your scrap desk. But you’re not really feeling the love. You’re a bit burnt-out and tired…
You’re raring to go, but making scrapbooking a priority has fallen by the wayside as you tackle “life:” Work, home, kids, friends… when are you going to get time to scrap?
You’re a new scrapbooker and are still trying to find your sea legs in this crazy, seemingly all-consuming hobby. 
If any of those sound like you, then the Layout A Day Class might be right up your street. 
In her effervescent and down-to-earth style, Lain invites you to spend February with her in Layout A Day-LOAD  212, creating 29 layouts in 29 days (it’s leap year!). Each day brings a new page prompt, layout example, and video to help inspire you. LOAD 212’s theme is Past Perfect, and participants will be mining recent (or ancient!) history for unique story-telling opportunities that share a little bit of themselves on their scrapbook pages. 
With a private Flickr gallery and message board, scrappers share inspiration and motivation with sister LOADsters in a safe and friendly internet community.

Thank you so much, Lain!

I am really excited to get started with this class.  Am I a little scared?  Sure - especially with the pressure of telling you guys that I'm doing it.  But, I really have some photos and stories to scrap and it's just not getting done.  So, with 29 videos, 29 prompts and 29 layout samples, I figure I can get a whole lot done in a short amount of time.  I'm going to beat back that monster of indecision (paper choices, cut choices, photo choices) and just "get 'er done".

I hope you will think about joining in - the more the merrier!  Class starts February 1 (Wednesday)!

  5. It sounds like a lot of fun! With my busy schedule these days it would be amazing to get a layout a day done! I'm gonna go and check it out! :o)

  6. Love all the new ideas!

  7. Wow, it sound like a dream! A LO a day, will put me up to date, hehe, Can't wait to see whatnew inspiration you kindly would share with us. TFS and make the best of it!

  8. That would be amazing. Can't wait to see the beautiful creations.

  11. Thanks for the info, Joy! I signed up and have 2 friends that are joining me. We're looking forward to a little "kick in the seat" to get us scrapping again!

  12. I can't wait! I signed up after reading your first post! This should help me get going again doing my scrapbooking. Got a lot of holiday photos... :~)

  13. So glad to see you're 'IN"! I'm also (simultaneously) doing Stacy Julian's TWELVE, (which only requires TWELVE layouts a month...HA!) and LOAD...killing two birds with one stone. Or maybe just wounding it...we'll see. IT's ON!

  14. That's exactly what it is for me! I've always pinpointed that I generate so much anxiety over whether I make those same choices perfectly. It absolutely prevents me from producing anything! Ironically, I don't have that blockage with card-making. I think it's the permanence of an album that's intimidating for me. Best of luck in slaying the "Monster". I hope you have tons of productive FUN!

  15. My most favorite used the most cartridge is Storybook. I love to weld together with my gypsy. I think it goes with so many things and just adds such beauty to a page.

  16. It sounds like fun and a kick in the paints is great. Thnaks for all you do and share, God bless you and yours.

  17. Can't wait to see the Layouts! :0)

  18. Exciting news! thank you for sharing! Love all the new things I learn!
