HDG: Don’t Blink


How many of you love to scrapbook?

How many of you WISH you loved to scrapbook?

How many of you would love to scrapbook if you weren’t so dang overwhelmed with knowing where to start?

Oh, people. I have a solution for you. :)

My friend Jessica has an online class through Big Picture Scrapbooking called Don’t Blink: Scrapbooking Your Baby’s First Year. Here’s the awesome thing about this class... you download it and review it on your own time. You don’t have to schedule a time at your computer or get a sitter or feel pressured to meet at a big scrapbooking crop. You just get to discover her ideas, her methods, find out her favorite products and figure out how scrapbooking can best fit into your life.

Now, I have no children of my own – other than Riley, obviously – but I have five godchildren who I have made scrapbooks for. Godchildren who I plan to continue to make scrapbooks for even though I’m super far behind on them. And when I started out, in those babies’ first years, I was constantly telling their moms to remember to take pictures of the big events so I’d have something to scrapbook.

This class helps you figure out what kind of things you may want for your child’s scrapbook and what kind of things you may just want to put in photo sleeves. If you have boxes of photos in your closet and your baby somehow has turned into a ten year old, you can still take this class and figure out how to sift through that box and decide how to create the album you always wanted to start.

Sometimes all we need is a good kick start to get us going. This is just that.

Here's the class description:
Finding time to scrapbook amidst milestones and diaper changes can be a challenge, but it is possible! In the self-paced class Don't Blink: Scrapbooking Your Baby's First Year, you will receive tips, tricks and inspiration to complete your baby's first year album - while he or she is still a baby. And don't despair, if your baby is walking and talking, Don't Blink will still inspire you to complete his album before he graduates high school.
As a new mommy who works full-time, writes The Mom Creative blog and loves to scrapbook, Jessica Turner's life is a constant juggling act. After not finding any baby scrapbooking resources she loved and with a commitment to completing her son's first year album while he was still a baby, she developed Don't Blink: Scrapbooking Your Baby's First Year.


After taking Don't Blink, you will be inspired to create dozens of layouts for your baby's scrapbook. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by the amount of pictures you have taken and the layouts you could make, you will have the tools needed to create a scrapbook that will be cherished for generations by your child. AND, you will be able to get it done during naptimes, at night and whenever else you can squeeze in fifteen to thirty minutes to scrapbook!
