Here's a self-paced course from Get it Scrapped that I am taking right now and will be reviewing for you soon. So far, I can tell you that I'm LOVING it. It already has me thinking differently about my journaling and I took some of the lessons to heart with some layouts that I created this weekend.

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!
