Hey, you, with your photos in the cloud!

Scrapbook page by Debbie Hodge

Are you recording the stories of those photos you’re taking?  Are you noting the details that will trigger rich memories later on? Or are the photos piling up, unculled and unlabeled, in your ever-growing cloud drive?

I’m Debbie Hodge, the owner of Get It Scrapped, and I want you to make sure future generations aren’t left guessing whose house that is in the picture, or what kind of car is parked behind the kids playing on the sidewalk, or who those kids even are.

Take a look at this scrapbook page—> That’s my niece and my son in 2013, tasting nasturtiums for the first time. See how easy that was? I gave my photos (and my family) a story. You can do this, too, and I can show you how.

headshot_2014_dh_1x1_500pxRecording memories–and breaking down and making that process accessible–is a passion for me.

Here at Get It Scrapped, I’ve combined my skills (an MBA  concentration in operations management and 20+ years of study and practice of creative writing) with my passion (telling personal stories) to make a business of  showing you how to organize your memories and photos and use writing and design to record the stories and events of your life. 

You can get started right away getting the stories that go with your photos noted and understanding the basics of putting together scrapbook pages with a Get It Scrapped Free Membership. It includes two classes with everything you need to know about the parts of a scrapbook page and the design tools that help you choose and place those parts. The great thing about learning these basic design principles is that you’ll use them in other pursuits: setting a holiday table, laying out a fundraiser poster, and decorating your mantel.

If you’re looking for more advanced lessons in design and visual storytelling, the Get It Scrapped Full Membership  is a well-organized, beautifully-illustrated compilation of design lessons and creative ideas. There are 48 classes (with 36 eBooks and 200+ hours of audio/video) in the library now, and we add a new class the first Wednesday of every month. And we have live events in our virtual meeting room almost every week. Over 50 designers from the scrapbook industry have contributed to the membership library.

Still want to know more about Get It Scrapped and my work with all those photographers who are giving their photos stories?
