Design Challenges
12 inspired scrapbooking prompts to cure creative block

Take the challenge(s)! Create twelve sensational scrapbook pages in four weeks, with Elizabeth Dillow, Erica Hernandez, and Stacy Julian as your creative muses. Design Challenges is back for its third run, and it's here to help you conquer creative block (and other artistic ailments).

Elizabeth Dillow was the force behind our summer blockbuster workshop, The Phone Photography Project. Now, in this month-long design journey, she'll help you tackle a dozen scrapbooking prompts that will have you scrapbooking with style, simplicity, and profound purpose.

In twelve downloadable handouts, Elizabeth will share two innovative scrapbook pages based on each of her twelve prompts, from "Challenge 1: Adapt a Familiar Form" to "Challenge 12: Embrace Fine Lines." A live classroom blog will include two bonus spins on each challenge, but with a fun new twist: these layouts will feature iPhone photos exclusively. (Just in case you need 24 excuses to get more of your photos off of your phone and into your scrapbooks!)

In addition, Big Picture Classes founder Stacy Julian will share a layout and a video of her own for each of the twelve design challenges, in a special section of the classroom called "Stacy's Spin."

If you're counting, that's 12 inspiring challenges, illustrated by 60 purposeful page examples, punctuated by 76 minutes of video instruction, taught by two veteran instructors at Big Picture Classes. And that adds up to BIG inspiration.
