{Big Picture Scrapbooking :: capture the first year}

This giveaway is now closed!

My friend Jessica Turner loves to scrapbook as much as I love to sew, and she recently started a fab scrapbooking class for new {or seasoned} moms. This blog is all about supporting the handmade industry along with finding new friends and shops to support. I’m super excited to share with you Jessica’s passion…


About the class:

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 nap-times, at night and whenever else you can squeeze in fifteen to thirty minutes to scrapbook!

    I’m due with my 2nd son in November. I’d love to do his baby book through Jessica’s class. I took a Big Picture Scrapbooking class by Talia Audenart for my 1st son’s baby book. I LOVED it, but want to do something else for the 2nd one. Thanks for the chance to win!

    I have a friend that just got into digital scrap-booking and vowed to do one page each day for a year to document her kids lives. She might scale back once she reaches her goal, cuz it’s proving to be a LOT of work. Ever since seeing her project progress I have wanted to learn how to do this. I have all of the programs, photoshop etc…but could use some guidance on where to start, tips and tricks! I’m definitely checking this out. :)

    Oo, what a great class! I’ve been saying I’m going to make a scrapbook for my little man since before he was born. He turned one in May…
