international scrapbooking day
I think it’s officially National Scrapbooking Day, but to that I would say … what about the rest of the world?? We have scrapbookers spanning this entire planet! So… Happy International Scrapbooking Day, friends! This is the official holiday that we celebrate the coolest hobby on the planet. A hobby that is SO fun, rewarding, meaningful, therapeutic, important … all wrapped into one activity.
Obviously we have a few things up our sleeves to celebrate with YOU! Here’s a quick overview, and I invite you to partake in any or all of these exciting things!
Project Photo Rescue
For the first time ever, we have produced a video … that’s honestly more like a reality show you’d see on TV. Minus the commercials. We found a military wife who felt so overwhelmed, behind, confused on “where to go from here” with her scrapbooking. I went to her house, spent a couple days helping her to make sense of this hot mess she was feeling (just 5 days before the arrival of baby #3) and … well, you’ll just have to see it for yourself. Check out the blog post, and please share the video with ANYone who might relate to Jaime’s struggles or have any interest at all in scrapbooking.

Free Scrapbooking Themed Cards
Once you have purchased the app (and for those who already own the app), our most recent update (which will go live any day now) includes an amazing set of free scrapbooking themed cards designed by Shawna Clingerman called Capture Life. These cards are gorgeous and so versatile and made especially for scrapbookers! These are also available as a free download in our Digital Shop and can be found here. We are also including some free teacher appreciation cards by Liz Tamanaha in this month’s app update and there are SO many fantastic new collections being added as well. It’s going to be an epic app update this month.

You may have noticed something I’ve been sprinkling throughout my Facebook and Instagram sharing this week. Each person on our team has taken a moment to share how / when / where / why WE use Project Life personally! I hope this has inspired you to think about this for yourself.
We want to see YOUR photos holding up an “I Use Project Life” sign. Download that sign here, print it, and finish that sentence with a bold marker. Then take a photo with your sign and post it on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #IUseProjectLife. In one week we will randomly select one person to receive a 30-minute Skype with me where I will do a mini Project Photo Rescue session with you!
Friends, I have overwhelmingly strong opinions about why this hobby of memory keeping is such a beautiful thing. I have a feeling that you feel similarly. You’re here because you have an interest in scrapbooking or you’re very much involved in preserving memories in one form or another. Regardless of your approach or style or longevity or experience … I applaud you for your efforts in cultivating a good life and recording it.
Thank you so much for being here, and we’re so happy to be celebrating with you!
