What is Scrapbook with me?

I know I have referenced Scrapbook with me events over the past year here on my blog as well as on my Facebook and Instagram pages. If you are unfamiliar with these events, this post is for you!

My finished layout from a recent Scrapbook with me.

Sketch used as the basis for this layout.

With the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic and lockdowns happening many of my in-person scrapbooking events ended up being cancelled - day crops, retreats and vendor events. Everyone I know was stuck at home and looking for outlets to keep them "sane" during these times. I started doing twice weekly scrapbooking events through Zoom to keep myself working on my scrapbooks and to challenge my friends and customers to keep up with their scrapbooking. 

Of course, the biggest side benefit of these events has been the social interaction we have during our Zooms. We have visitors pop in to say hi as well as bark or meow a hello!

So what exactly is a Scrapbook with me? These events run on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:00pm to 5:00pm (EST) and are open to my friends and customers. I set up the events on my Facebook page each week for the following week. I provide a link to a downloadable PDF that contains the sketch as well as a supply list for what papers and tools you would need to do a layout from the sketch.

I send a Zoom link out to those who respond to the Facebook event. We meet for those 2 hours, work together and enjoy the social time! I have my setup so that I have 2 panels on Zoom - one with my face and the other with my work surface so attendees can see how I create my layouts. I always love to see everyone and seeing the different takes on the sketch that people create!

Here are a few behind the scenes pictures from my most recent event.

So I am sure you have some questions. I have some answers here but if you do not see your question answered please comment below or send me a message!

1. Do I need to scrapbook using the sketch during the Zoom? No, I have people who join me and work on other scrapbook layouts, cards and paper crafting projects during the event.

2. Do you need to follow the sketch exactly during the event? No, you can adjust the sketch however you want to fit your scrapbooking.

3. Do I need to be a customer of yours to join? No, my events are always open!

4. Do you teach any techniques during your events? Yes! I try and teach something new as often as I can during these events.

5. Do you record the event? No, since there are multiple people attending the event for their privacy I do not record the Zoom.

6. How can I join one of your events? Follow my Facebook page to get the notifications of upcoming events and then just respond Going or Interested to the event so I can send you the link. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you at one of my upcoming events!
