Scrapbook Class – Explore

I’m still a bit lost with my scrapbooking so when I saw Shimelle had a new class called EXPLORE I thought it might be just what I needed to get the creative juices and inspiration flowing again.


Best thing is that it’s a class you work on at your own pace – so it’s not to late to join in if you want. I found an old pink mini album and decorated it. It already had some pages, but I added others and added some photos which inspire explorations as instructed.


The first task, after setting up an album, was t0 take a self portrait. For the album I did crop out the shower stuff :-). We then had to write about where we were “creativity” wise at the moment. As you probably know I’m just not feeling it at the moment. I want to scrapbook. I love scrapbooking. It just seems I’m repeating what I’ve already blogged. But when I was writing in the album I realized that in years to come no-one (besides possibly me) is going to read through all my of blog posts, but they might pick up a scrapbook album.


The next prompt involved writing on a postcard about our most adventurous moment. Amazingly enough I had a postcard of a whale shark in Exmouth and wrote about how I was adventurous enough to swim with one – even though I didn’t as none showed up that day. It’s funny. I don’t really think of myself as adventurous but people are always telling me I am. I guess I’m willing to get out there and give a lot of things a try, as long as it’s on the safe side :-).

Shimelle then had us playing with maps. It really is a fun class so far and I look forward to seeing where it takes me.


Let me know if you sign up, or are already doing the class.

  1. Sounds interesting Libby. Even though I had made packs up for this weekend I did nothing, being sick didnt help. Im just finishing off some layouts tonight. One needs a title the other needed something glued etc. I want to scrap I just cant get started, maybe I need to go back to the local scrapbooking shop on a Friday night, I always got a few layouts done and the good thing is you can stay until 3 or 4 in the morning. Im doing Ali Edwards “week in my life” that starts tomorrow are you doing that one? I hope my mojo returns soon as I miss not scrapping.
