This class was a great reminder of why I started scrapbooking in the first place. The layouts I usually see online are definitely product driven so this was fresh inspiration. I'm a huge fan of Tracie's teaching style. Thanks!

This is an outstandingly good class. So well done. The beautifully done videos make her points stick and the handouts are simple, short but rock with utility. She doesnt knock any scrapbooking approach and covers them well. Her case for Story first is entirely compelling for anyone who scrapbooks for legacy more than prettiness or product. Love Tracie's beautifully clean & simple style with great balance of white space and crisp contrast. This is probably my favorite new BPC class to date.

This class really got my wheels turning. I've considered myself a story-based scrapbooker for a long time now, but the videos and lessons included in this class really got me thinking about which stories I want to record and I am finishing it feeling very inspired. I will refer back to it for sure!

Love Tracie Claiborne! One of my favorite people in the industry. So glad she's here at BPC. I hope she will do more classes in the future. In this class I'm learning that I'm a product based scrapper. I want to tell my stories but always get stuck. Tracie is making me realize that I'm the one making it hard on myself. I just need to switch my process around in order to achieve my goals of more of my important stories being told in my scrapbooks.
