Divide & Conquer giveaway

Today is a giveaway day. Yay!
I love a mini. I love working one pocket at a time because often a small pocket of time is all I have! I was super happy to be asked to contribute a tiny bit to this workshop. Love the theme I was given and how it turned out. Lisa did an amazing job, as always, and she and Two Peas in a Bucket have offered one of you a spot in it! (If you win and have already paid, no problem! Two Peas will refund your money OR you can give the spot away to a friend.)

So, what kind of class is Divide & Conquer? I'm so glad you asked :)

If you have the best intentions with mini albums – but not the best follow through – then it’s time to Divide and Conquer! Garden Girl Lisa Truesdell will walk you through the steps of using divided page protectors to turn a hodge podge of memorabilia and photos into a beautifully finished mini album. We’ll explore putting together a kit to work from, selecting what photos and keepsakes will make the cut, and fun techniques perfect for this style of book. Lisa also has lots of tips on keeping your motivation up & making the process fun until the last embellishment is in place, and will be sharing a peek at additional sample layouts from three other contributors, each working with a different themed album.

This self -paced workshop will let you work at your own speed through the chapters – each chapter is accompanied by a helpful PDF walking you through the process and a 10-minute video sharing a closer look at how Lisa’s album came together.  These videos are technique-based and will explore creating a die-cut cover, working with transparencies to build a two-sided layout, 
 custom sized page protectors and techniques for working with pockets. 
Lisa is using the Simple Stories Documented 6x8 Mix & Match Mini Album available for purchase separately, however, these same principles may be applied to an album of any size using divided page protectors.
The content of this workshop will be available immediately upon purchase. The lessons are available for you to work at your own pace and upon purchase can be accessed in the "Workshops" section under "Classes & Events." A private message board forum is also available to ask questions for Lisa and to connect with other participants. Enjoy! 


Just leave a comment for your chance to win! If you want something specific to comment about, how about what kind of mini you might make if you win a spot. Good Luck!

  14. Would LOVE the opportunity! I especially like the part about picking the photos that will make the cut and if I were to win, I would probably purchase the album to get it all right! I think it would make it easier to follow along. I've never made my own album, only instructions from pre-designed albums. This would be a super fun class to take!
