Life Studies Class project is posted now........

Announcing a project has been posted to the Life Studies class at TSoS. Join me!

Click HERE

This class is Life Studies and one thing we all need to continue our life is food.

Where do you keep your food?

A pantry? A cupbord? A box? Stacked in the garage? Bomb shelter?


Now that you are thinking..... grab your camera and snap some photos of your food storage area.

I will have some journaling prompts and ideas for shooting interesting photos at the end of this post.

Your assignment for this class is to create a layout to document YOUR PANTRY.

Let us stop time by capturing an easily overlooked place in our homes that really speak to WHO we are and WHY we are the way we are. Our kitchens!

This layout will require lots of journaling. WHATEVER that means to you... a few sentences or a page full of journaling and tucked away like a recipe card. This is yours... your style... your preferences.

Any color............ Any size............ Due... end of this month!

Prize...... [here is where this will get interesting]

if 10 students take this class and finish this project and upload into their galleries and post the LINK here in this class forum I will go into the School Store and pull a special kit for a winner of my chosing. Winner will be randomly drawn from all entries.

So talk to your friends, neighbors, checkout girls at the grocery store and have them sign up for this class. Each time another student enrolls after the original 10, I will add ONE MORE PRIZE to the prize booty for the Star Student!!!!!

Journaling prompts and Photo prompt ideas:
Why do you keep it there?

Why do you arrange the boxes / cans in the way that you do?

What are you never without in your pantry?

What are you always OUT of?

How far is your grocery store?

Do you stockpile using coupons to stockpile or shop sales?

** I can't wait to see your class projects.

Here are some of the projects that the Design Team did with the GREAT Page kits from Memories By The Page!

These page kits come with everything to put together a wonderfully designed layout quickly and easily! You will NEVER be able to say you just don't have time to scrapbook anymore!!! These put the phrase "Made In Minutes" to the test and they PASSED!

Just add photos and drop them in your album! You can add embellishments and journaling or leave it as is - either way... perfection!!!!!

Be sure to visit them at and tell them you saw their Kits at The School of Scrap!

We all have friends/family that always say they would LOVE to scrapbook if they just had the time and knew how... well, the Holiday season is almost here and these would make the PERFECT gift. I was amazed at the value for these, and you will be to.

Thanks to the Folks at Memories By The Page for supporting The School of Scrap! I will be a lifelong fan now!

August makes the Faculty at TSoS start to think about winding down summer and getting ready for all the Back To School hubbalou that will start up before we know it! For some families, school starts back in August and for others it is September.

We have had a couple really GREAT months of Summer and we should spend this month looking back and celebrate this season... the End O'Summer.

Our theme for all the classrooms and contests in August is "End O'Summer". Be sure to check out the Classrooms and join in the challenges and let's put some end o'summer in your layouts!!!!
