As the year comes to a close, we’re taking stock of our blessings and gearing up for a fresh start. As part of our plans for 2019, I’m excited to announce a new initiative at Simple Scrapper: #ScrapbookYourWay.
#ScrapbookYourWay celebrates writing your own rules for scrapbooking in a world where a camera is always within reach and creative options are abundant. It means choosing the memory-keeping formats and processes that feel simple and work best for you. “Your Way” is the approach that fills you up and fits your life right now.
We’ve long encouraged the use of #SimpleScrapper for sharing photos, pages, and projects inspired by our community, but it’s time to add a new hashtag into the mix. You are invited to use #ScrapbookYourWay whenever you share how you made something work for you. Whether you used a time-saving shortcut, made a project course correction, or managed to eek out extra time by getting a Roomba, let us know how you #ScrapbookYourWay.
You can use hashtags on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, but we’ll be primarily watching Instagram to see how you are personalizing your creative process.
The first major effort of the #ScrapbookYourWay initiative is our new free workbook. The Scrapbook Your Way Workbook is an undated tool you can use to get your creative plans in order and keep them moving forward throughout the year. It’s not a one-and-done worksheet, nor is it a planner you need to keep up with every day. Consider it your sidekick for twelve months of happy, productive scrapbooking!
The workbook contains practical and eye-opening exercises to ensure you stay motivated and focused season after season. It is available in three formats: printable PDF, editable Google Doc, and professionally printed volume shipped to your home.
Reminder: Pre-orders for our January shipment of printed workbooks close December 28.
Next up is perhaps the most exciting news I have to share. We’re launching a free scrapbooking podcast in early 2019!
I got the hang of podcasting over the past three years, creating 77 episodes for our member community. It’s time to shake things up and bring that conversation to the wider creative community. The Scrapbook Your Way Podcast will celebrate the breadth of ways to be a memory keeper today. Our format will vary week to week, with a healthy mix of teaching, listener Q&A, roundtable discussions, and interviews with everyday scrapbookers.
After a decade of serving the scrapbooking community, our team is ready to take things up a notch. We’re leaning in to our strongest values of creative inclusivity, flexible productivity, and joyful simplicity. We’re also evolving to serve our biggest fans and our soon-to-be fans even more effectively.
I’m so glad you’re along for the ride and can’t wait to share more in the new year. Happy Holidays!
