In this rerun of her 2015 original class series, you'll find all twelve months of the series along with videos and sketches for each. In this series, Aly provides an endless supply of tips to help you record an entire year in an authentic, creative, and fun way. As we all know, life is busy, so finding time to scrapbook can be tough, but this series is a great way to set aside some time to get those stories told! At the end of this class, students will come away with their story for an entire year documented.
