New Class: Curated Scrapbook Albums

The following is from Debbie Hodge's newest online scrapbooking class, Curated Albums. I'll be taking this class in November. Hope you will consider being a part of the class!

With “Curated Albums,” revisit your body of scrapbooking work and pick out the very best pages and page combinations to tell overarching stories that compel you. This isn’t about re-ordering your current scrapbook albums. This isn’t about making new theme albums. This is about identifying recurring themes and compelling storylines in your past work, excerpting what you already have, filling in where needed, and making easy-to-hold and replicate personal story books.

The Curated Albums class includes:
  • Video and written lessons each week
  • One dozen curated album ideas
  • Four curated album story arcs
  • Design ideas for physical album, covers, dividers, and table of contents options
  • Print-, cut-, and digital-design files for curated album storytelling
  • Curation process walkthroughs including brainstorming ideas and digitizing paper pages with photography, scan-and-stitch, and send-out services
The Curated Albums class schedule is as follows:
The written and video lessons are made available on Tuesday mornings for 4 weeks. You access them at your convenience and then share in a private forum and gallery where your classmates respond at their convenience. You do not need to be anywhere at any specific time.
The office hours sessions are live and scheduled at several different hours. You can post your questions and links in the forum and gallery ahead of time if you cannot attend. A video recording of the office hours and chat log will be posted in your classroom area with 24 hours.
Lesson 1: Tues, Nov 4.
Lesson 2: Tues, Nov 11.
Lesson 3: Tues, Nov 18.
Lesson 4: Tues, Nov 25.
Office Hours: Thurs, Nov 6 at 8pm ET.
Office Hours: Weds, Nov 12 at 1pm ET.
Office Hours: Thurs, Nov 20 at 9pm ET.
Office Hours: Mon, Nov 24 at 4pm ET.


  1. This looks like a great class! I'm not signing up for anything new until after the first of this year, but I have to admit this one tempted me greatly. We'll be traveling a good deal in November, so I was able to stick to my plan! :)

  2. I was not agreeing to accept anything new until after the first of this current year, however I need to concede this one. Thanks for the share.
