Debbie has another great self-paced class up for grabs.

The focus of Be Real is making scrapbook pages from your everyday life and events photos that have meaning. Each lesson begins with a line from one of Jane Austen’s novels or personal letters–and this is because she is a writer who knew how to make a record of (imagined) life with humor and meaning. Her techniques and observations are a goldmine for memory keepers and memoirists today.

Specifically, these lessons show you have to make scrapbook pages that:

1. Take your everyday life and event photos beyond the obvious.
2. Tell truths that matter.

Be Real includes:
6 lessons in pdf form (filling 70 pages) with layout examples and detailed how-tos for adding meaning via journaling and design.

Topics covered:
1) Discovering Meaning
2) Revealing Character
3) Getting Perspective
4) Avoiding Sentimentality
5) Telling Stories
6) Expressing the Inexpressible

Visit the Be Real product page and you can even view a PDF sample of the book to see if it's for you!

Nicole's always got great new die cut designs available at her Etsy shop...and old favorites in new colors and textures as well.

This month, this scrapbooking scroll called "Queen" in black is what caught my eye. It would be a great element to add a little elegance to any layout!
