Giveway: Online Class by Karen Grunberg at AMM!

** This giveaway is now closed! **

A Million Memories and Karen Grunberg are giving away one spot in Karen’s new online class to a ScrapScene reader! The class is called, “The Book of Me” and begins on May 5th. Please read below for more information about the class as well as how to qualify for the giveaway.

Come join A Million Memories Design Team member Karen Grunberg in creating a memorable and unique album to celebrate yourself.

This album will guide you to make a minibook containing 6 easy and 6 not-so-easy facts about you. Each page of the minibook will be a list of six things on a particular topic, like songs you like or places you’ve been. There will be six pages of easy and fun facts about you and then six pages of deeper, more meaningful facts. A total of 14 classes will be spread across three weeks to give you plenty of time to catch up.

Each class will contain an example page from Karen’s minibook with alternate ideas, photography tips, journaling tips, and lot of other inspiration. You will have access to a private bulletin board where you can ask questions, show off your minibook pages and share the joy of creating a memorable and meaningful album for yourself and your loved ones.

The best thing about this class is that you can use your own stash and your own, unique style to create your book. It will be 100% authentic to you.

You can find a lot more information here and register for the class here.

To qualify for the giveaway, one free spot in Karen’s class, please comment to this post. We’d like to hear about scrapbooking you. Have you ever done a page or perhaps even a whole album or mini book about yourself? What are your thoughts on this? Comments will be taken until Monday, April 28th at midnight EST. A winner will be selected via an online random number generator and announced on Tuesday, April 29th.

    I honestly have not done any pages about myself unless it includes my children. I would love to take a class and learn how to do this! Thank you for the opportunity!

    I have a finished 11×8 1/2 album on 8 of my core beliefs. One page has the core belief and the other page has 4 to 5 pictures of me, anywhere from baby til present. Just peaking out of the top of each belief page is a tag tucked into a pocket behind the page giving more details of why this is one of my core beliefs. I enjoyed putting this album together.

    I would love to create another album just about me to give my children a deeper glimpse of my inner me.

    I’ve often thought about doing some pages about me but haven’t really had the time too. I think it’s a GREAT idea though!

    I’m working on pages about me as part of my New Year’s resolution and it’s been surprisingly enjoyable! I can’t wait to look back on them in 5 or 10 years time and see how much things have changed.

    I don’t do many layouts or books about myself but the few that I do I truly cherish. Looks like a neat class.

    I have done several layouts about myself and one mini album that Shimelle offered awhile back. They are very fun to do.

    I’ve never made a whole book of Me, but have scrapped a few old photos of myself from my childhood. I would really like to tackle a project like this, but have always found it hard knowing where to start. It would be a great prize to win. thanks for the chance

    Sounds like a wonderful class, I do a LO a week on different verses from the Bible and how they affect my life.

    I’ve never made a scrapbook solely based on me. I always have other people in it. I think this would be an awesome class and would love to win!

    I like to make things for others so I’ve never considered doing anything about me. I am currently working on a mini for my niece. This class would be a great motivator.

    My scrapbooks/pages have always centered on my family, children and their activities, but never anything solely about me. Thanks for the opportunity to win a spot for “me.”

    I’m always making things for other people and have NEVER made a complete book about myself. I just found your blog and love it!

    I’ve only attempted one ME page before – there is a fear of committing things about myself to paper. I want to create a real BOM, not blase and candy coated but the dark side too! I really need help with this one – with a new baby on the way, I’d like that one day they could look back over the person I was – rather then the mum that they knew.

    I’m fascinated with Book of Me classesd. I started a couple different albums but have yet to complete them. I’m queen of unfinished projects. This book of me class sounds small enough to be completeable. That’s what I need. I think it’s so important to share stuff about ourselves!

    I have never done any scrapbooking on me, although I have sat in front of the computer for hours just wondering how to start. I am a very newbie and have only completed a couple of pages but am not very happy with the results. Perhaps a class would get me out of this ” I am not game to start” phase, and set me on a path that could emulate some of the fine work I have seen on your web site.

    I’ve been planning an album about myself for the longest time. I did a few pages, and some section dividers, but never got around to more. Plus, with some job and family changes in the last couple of years, it looks like the finishing line just moved a bit further.

    I have always wanted to do a book of me, but i dont know where to start. And i have never tried an online class either, it would be so fun to try.

    I have done a couple of pages on myself, as I am rarely in any of the photos that I scrap. I found It makes you analyse aspects of yourself you might not normally think about. This class sounds fun.

    I have nover done a minibook or layout just about me, but I would really love to! I am sure my daughter would love it when she is older! I would have loved to seen such a book about what my Mom!

    I do not do very many layouts about me..I am usually the person behind the camera..I also do not really like the way the camera adds loads of unwanted pounds..humm funny about that eh? Self portraits seem to be hard to do and I find they always look goofy.. tee hee anywho! I would love to do a book about me and can prolly scrounge up some sassy photos of myself somewhere? LOL! :o)

    Well sort about me. One album, that I keep adding to, is about pictures of our funny faces. (or mishaps: ie: the one where the entire was not to get up from a posed picture). We looked soooo funny! I have titled the album ” Our Mishaps”. Oh..even the ones from birthday parties, Christmas, anniversaries, holidays,vacations etc. And anyone who comes to our house, loves to look at this book.

    Well this would mean a lot to me.My Dad died on yesterday.I had asked him to complete a book about his life for me and my Sister,as we knew he didn’t have long.But he never completed a page.I don’t want to make the same mistake for my children and would love to complete a project about ME.I always seem to scrapbook everyone else as I rarely like the pictures of myself.It woulg give me something to look forward to over the coming week and give me a focus.I would like to celebrate Me for a change.

    I haven’t done a book specifically about me, although I’ve thought about it for a couple of years now, but I have made a book about all the project I have stitched and I’m doing a book right now on “a year in my life” (this is my, I’m turning fifty year but don’t tell anyone)

    I have never created any scrapbook or mini book about myself. I do try to select pictures of myself in my scrapbooks. Its easy to focus on others.
