Welcome to Journal Camp!

Journal Camp logo with dates


Are you one of many people who set out to create memory scrapbook pages to preserve those moments in time for your children or grandchildren and end up with a pretty piece of art that presents lots of unanswered questions? Every picture tells a story, but they all still need a few words to get their stories moving in the right direction. If you don't journal, if you don't share the story that you know goes with your photos, you're leaving your family history to be guessed by future generations!

If you have ever said "I don't journal" or "I can't journal" on scrapbook pages and really want to add this very important part of scrapbooking to your memories, then Journal Camp is for you! Journal Camp is a 5-week series that will make your scrapbook journaling better. At the end of five weeks, you'll have the tools that will enable you to tell your stories!

Can Journal Camp really help ME?

Journal Camp is designed to help you slowly wade into the word pool and increase your comfort with journaling. By the end of five weeks, you'll be swimming in things to say! We'll hold your hand as we work on the techniques together. Each week's layout challenges will concentrate on that week's new skill incorporated with the skills you've already learned!
