I am taking the Ordiments of Everyday Life class at Big Picture Classes. I have to say that the first couple days I hated it. The first few assignments are to gather specific products and put them aside and then gather specific photos and put them aside. You do not know which products go with which photos and how until the page ideas come later. This is totally different from the way I scrapbook (photos+color) and totally different from the way I want to scrapbook (photos+story), but after seeing my tray fill with color I got excited!
And realizing that I was pulling photos out that I would NEVER scrapbook if it weren't for this class (but that I would like scrapped) got me addicted. This is the first layout done for this class with this method...
Love it! Can not wait to see what else comes of this and I am actually quite enjoying being so far out of my comfort zone! Love BPC!!!


  1. Hi Kristie, I am taking Ali's OLW class with you and I found your blog though there. I had a question about using GIMP but it is on such an old post (in the message board) that I'm afraid no one will ever see it! Do you think you could take a look and respond? It is on the "question about overlay's" thread, way at the botton of page three under "Ask Ali".

    Thank you so much for any help you can provide!

  2. Alternately, you could email me:

  3. Kristie,
    For some reason I could not reply to your post on Ali's blog so posting here instead. How did you get an "old" Project Life album? I've been looking all over the internet for one since the new are sold out and I am dying to get started.
