For years I had been dreaming of an annual photo book that still felt like a scrapbook. In 2021 I brought that vision to life using Lightroom Classic.
You may have heard me talk about my “Lightroom photo book” on the podcast over the past year. I knew I wanted to share more about this project, but that live and interactive support would definitely be necessary.
Registration has now opened for Scrapbooking with Lightroom, a 3-session Zoom workshop with 1 live webinar and 2 interactive meetings. The cost is just $20.
During the first session you’ll learn the fundamentals of building a photo book with Lightroom Classic that’s full of stories and creative touches. Then, in our two follow-up sessions we’ll make sure all your questions are answered.
For me, this project has been the solution to capturing the small moments of everyday life. It’s easy to create and incredibly satisfying to hold. Now I have more time, energy, and motivation to tell bigger stories with layouts and other projects.

What version of Lightroom is required for the workshop?
An active Adobe Creative Cloud subscription that includes Lightroom Classic is required.
The features used in the workshop were released with Lightroom 4, however Adobe is no longer supporting or providing updates for perpetual licenses (i.e. one time purchase versions.) We cannot guarantee project completion if older software is used.
Do I need to have experience with Lightroom Classic?
A basic understand of Lightroom Classic (including a catalog of your images) is recommended for workshop success. Eager beginners are certainly welcome, but this workshop will not cover the basics of the core photo management and photo editing features.
Can you use other photo software?
No, this workshop uses features that are unique to Lightroom Classic to create a photo book. Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, and the cloud-based Lightroom will not work.
What are the additional costs?
The workshop will cover ordering your completed book through Blurb. The total cost depends on the size, number of pages, and options selected. You may also wish to purchase digital artwork to include in your book.
Is this workshop included with Simple Scrapper membership?
No. Because of this niche nature of the topic, the workshop is being held outside of the membership. However, members who purchase will get access to a private group for ongoing support and encouragement.
