ScrapSmarter Experience is Back! Come Join the Fun!

I’m excited to tell you about an awesome event happening in January!

It’s a weekend of scrapbooking inspiration and education you won’t want to miss.

The ScrapSmarter Experience is bringing together 10 amazing scrapbooking instructors for an online virtual weekend of classes and inspiration.

Alice Boll from the ScrapHappy membership community is hosting this event with a brand new line up of instructors.

I was so lucky to be an instructor for the ScrapSmarter Experience this summer and let me tell you…it’s a BLAST!!! So much creative inspiration provided by some of the industry’s top designers!

How does it work?

The entire event will take place online using Zoom January 15-17, 2021.

The classes are short and are focused on teaching new skills, techniques, and concepts to help you create scrapbook pages you love.

Ali Edwards, the keynote speaker will help us kick off the party on Friday.

Saturday features 6 classes with each instructor sharing a pre-recorded class session and interacting in a live Q&A session.

Sunday will have 4 more classes and a wind up party with prizes.

Simon Hurley
Meghann Andrew
Krystal Iduñate
