I Scrap Dead People, the title of the most recent podcast in Paperclipping Roundtable series is what caught my attention. The episode featured Ana Cabrera of FamilySearch.org and Jessica Sprague of JessicaSprague.com. They focused on finding ways to combine genealogy and family history research with scrapbooking to make our findings accessible for our family members and for our descendants. FamilySearch will be launching new family history and scrapbooking campaigns in the coming weeks and Jessica Sprague has a neat digital scrapbooking kit, Family History Album Class 1, to assist us with putting all of our hard work into an attractive format that will be cherished (we can only hope) for years to come.
Well, my friends, I have been wanting to take this class for quite a while. I have taken a class from Jessica before and it was top notch with clear instructions. Then I started wondering if other people have been thinking about doing something like this too. So, I started asking around on Twitter and lo and behold I got some takers. Now I am wondering if you might like to participate as well.
First go take a look at the Family History Album Class 1 and then I will tell you my plan.
Here is the plan; we sign up for the class, do a piece each week and post our results on Sundays, under the theme Scrapbook Sunday. If we have enough geneabloggers we can ask Thomas to list our theme under his Daily Blogging Prompts in the daily Genealogy Blogging Beat.
What do you think? Interested? I saved the best part for last. Jessica Sprague got wind that a group of us were thinking about doing this and she has offered us a twenty percent discount! Just use the coupon code: FHA385 at checkout. That brings the cost down to just $36. That's a great deal.
