Finding Photo Freedom

Ok, I guess I should let you all in on the mystery of my conference call photo from this post. Yes, Tuesday I was on a conference call with Stacy Julian about the upcoming Finding Photo Freedom workshop. I am totally excited to announce that I will be one of the coaches in this year's workshop, helping answer questions and sharing my adaptations of the Library of Memories system!

Big Picture Classes

Registration for the 2011 Finding Photo Freedom workshop at Big Picture Classes is now open. This is the updated and revised version of Library of Memories. The class starts June 2nd, but there's plenty of pre-class work to keep you busy, so be sure to sign up quickly.

I first learned about Stacy Julian's Library of Memories when I read her book Photo Freedom in the fall of 2009. I knew I wanted to take the online workshop and implement her system for processing, storing, and scrapping my photos. The workshop far exceeded my expectations and inspired me to switch from chronological scrapbooking (where I could never keep up) to inspirational scrapbooking (where I am having so much fun!). I love this system and am able to find a photo and/or story to scrap anytime the inspiration hits. I now have a system for processing my digital photos, a place to put my printed photos, and "permission" to share my photos and stories in numerous ways (not everything needs to be on a scrapbook page). You can read more about my experience with LOM here and here.

I hope you'll join me in the 2011 Finding Photo Freedom workshop.

If you've never signed up for a class at BPC, please click here to set up your account. This link will allow you and me to receive a discount after your first purchase - how fun would that be! And if you're undecided about purchasing a class right now, you can still set up an account and take advantage of the FREE classes offered at BPC. There were two new free classes for digital scrappers added this week.

LOM Alumni - you should have received an email from BPC announcing that Stacy is inviting ALL former LOMers to register for the new workshop for FREE. (If you did not receive this email, be sure to contact BPC about it.) You don't want to miss the new and updated information!

Congrats Melissa!

I got the alum email and have signed up. I first took LOM back in 2006 and while I have the albums, I still haven't fully implemented the "flow" of the system. Apparently the alum have a separate classroom and won't get interaction with the coaches. :(

Congratulations Melissa! I did LOM last year and have implemented a lot of it for older film photos, but I need to organise my digital stuff! Great to read what you've acheived:) BTW I have signed up for this year's free class:)

Congrats! I was so glad the get the alum email. I love going back and getting the refresher. I've been doing LOM since 2007. I love the philosophy behind it, it changed the way I scrapbook and I couldn't be happier. Looking forward to seeing the new format! :)
