Power Scrapbooking - Stampin' Up! Style

A couple of weeks ago I did a Power Scrapbooking Class.  With only 6 hrs, 1/2 pack of Designer Series Paper, an assortment of white and solid colored cardstock, one 6x6 Linen Album and an assortment of matching embellishment, everyone completed a 20 page album.

Each person was required to bring 40 photos from one event or theme, a paper trimmer, adhesive and scissors.

I guided them through a "Power Scrapbooking" process of organizing, sorting, cropping, page assembly & embellishing, as well as decorating their album (which was inspired by an article in Simple Scrapbooking).  This class was great for both the experience and new-to-scrapbooking alike.  Here's Jane, Jill, Kris & Tricia with their finished books.

How Kris attached the Metal Edge Tag to her book?  She punch a hole in the album with the Crop-a-Dile!  Brave Kris!

Even I was able to complete some scrapbooking.  I got half-way done with my HAWAII scrapbook and finished it up the next day.  I can't remember when I actually finished a scrapbook.  Here's the cover of my book.

Here are some thoughts from some of the gals who attended:

"LOVED LOVED LOVED power scrapbooking!  I was so motivated the next day that I organized other projects to do.  When I get time, I'm going to use the same concept with a larger format because there's no way to do a Disney trip in a 6x6!  I don't think I'll scrapbook any other way from now on.  BRAVO - the "class" was a huge success!" - Kris

I had a good time and it was fun to bring it into work on Monday and show off what I accomplished in 6 hours.  I did pick up some tips which will be helpful when I do scrapbooking in the future.  When I do my next scrapbook, I will "try" to decide on which papers to use and gather my embellishments before I start.  That should help the process to go quicker!  I am certainly glad I did it! - Jane

I really liked power scrapbooking!  I can't believe we actually finished a full scrapbook!  It's nice because now I know how to organize a scrapbook....just time it and do it! - Tricia

Everyone's scrapbook turned out great!  Thanks Ladies for a fun night of scrapbooking!
