If you google Allison Kimball, you’ll find…
her blog which proves she is a superwoman (check out all the photo albums at the right side for heaps of inspiration),
her handwriting as a font,
her name on the list of Hall of Fame scrapbookers,
pictures of her hanging out with other fabulous scrapping superstars,
her take on a CK kit of the month,
and a hilarious birthday wish.
I’m so excited to share some of Allison’s work as part of There’s No Place Like Home. She’s created a fab book and a whole stack of resources that just made me itchy to create as soon as I started looking! Up above is a little sneak shot of Allison’s project, but there’s plenty more to see of course.
I know this has come up a few times so let me address the question of Just how much is there to do? All told, you’ll receive full instructions for twenty-five projects. Ten of them are bigger projects, like Allison’s book. Fifteen of them are smaller projects, like things to photograph, something creative to display, or a single layout for your scrapbook. There is absolutely no obligation to keep up and do every project every day! When something really hits you as something you want to do now, then do that one. Some you may really want to make but they won’t fit in your schedule right now, so it’s perfect to save for a rainy day. The community stays up and running permanently, so you can keep checking in on projects when they do fit into your schedule. Or if you actually have a fair bit of free time right now, you could carry right on with each project every day and have tons of stuff completed (and tons of stash used up!) by the end of the class. I firmly believe there should be no stress in scrapbooking so don’t worry about there being any pressure. With the extra snippets of projects over the next few days, it will start to have a fuller picture, but in the meantime, think of it like an idea book: do you instantly make something inspired by everything in there, all at once? So it’s a bit like that, except every project has a full set of instructions and the ten larger projects have printable resources to help complete everything. I’m getting too wordy now, so just know there is no reason to stress.
And if you’d like a little extra help with photography…thinking creatively about composing shots, getting to know your camera and the light and improving pictures from so-so to a new personal best…Cheryl of Feel Good Photos is running her Painting with Light workshop again now that there is some light in this part of the world! It’s a great place to make a real start so you can talk the talk and get the shot. It covers shots both inside and outside, so you could even put your new skills to use when photographing your kitchen for Allison’s project!
