You know all those old photos you have?

Well - you need to scrap them!  Join us tomorrow at for the newest instructor-led class (with the amazing Jessica herself!) - the Family History Album Class!  Capture all the precious memories - the funny stories, the history of you & yours, the big events and the tiny details that make life so special - now's the time to do it!

For many of us, family history can be intimidating. It's a heavy phrase that has a lot of meaning and typically connotes a lot of work, research, effort, and - for most of us - TIME that we don't necessarily have to commit to a huge project.

That's where this class comes in. If you've never started a family history album, or you don't know WHERE to start in recording your own family history, you've come to the right place!

In this first album, you'll focus on details and a few stories about your parents, grandparents, and other ancestors. Nothing too overwhelming, right? :) This is THE place to start if you've been "meaning to get to those old photos" you inherited! You'll find space for dozens of your vintage photos in the categories of "Parents", "Grandparents", and "Great-Grandparents", plus space for other photos you'd like to include. Other albums in the series will focus on extended family members, as well as dive into lots more details about those closest: parents and grandparents. Consider this our OVERVIEW album! The album format is flexible enough to accommodate you whether you've got lots of photos or very few.

In addition to creating the album, Jessica will discuss strategies for digitizing and organizing documents, memorabilia, photos, stories, and more so that you can begin a larger-scale, ongoing family history project as well.

Can't wait to see you in class!

Meg, I'm new to digital scrapbooking. Do you keep the pages and albums digital (on a flash drive, etc.), or do you actually print each page and make a paper album?
