A few months ago, Forever had a sale on their Forever Boxes. I have many, many old Creative Memories Power Sort Boxes of photos. Most likely I won't scrapbook most of the photos, but I still want to be able to see them. However, I really don't want them crowding my space. So... with the boxes on sale for 50% off - I bought the big one. I paid full price of $519.99 and that will give me $1039.98 of digitization. Plus there is my club discount of 5% that is not even figured in there.
I have old photo books, movie reels, VHS tapes, printed photos and old family photos to fit in the box. I added three scrapbooks, two VHS, one movie reel and one power sort box full of photos. There was so much room left.
I went through three boxes of Scott's mom's family photos and there is still so much room. I will finish the fourth box and start adding in more photo albums my mom made.
So many cool photos. Can't wait to get them in my account.
Back in the 2nd half of 2015 we remodeled our basement. Did you know that I had a vision of having digital crops down there before the process began? I wanted both places at a table and recliner seats with lap pads for digital divas to come and work on their books. December 2015 I had my first Digital Café. We have been meeting monthly ever since.
I started out putting together small gifts for attendees of fonts and templates. Then gradually that morphed into digital art kits with papers, embellishments, shapes and usually 6 templates. I even launched my own art brand:
Digital Café Art.
Then in May 2020 I found out that Artisan page files are actually a proprietary file and not eligible for giveaways or to sell. Hence the birth of the page sketch. So, over the last 15 months I have been creating handouts and videos showing my digital scrapbooking peeps how to create my templates. This has been a fun process of learning how to make the handouts and the videos. My customers have missed the ease of just getting my templates, but also have learned so much more about the software. Check out my latest page sketch demo on YouTube by clicking below.
When we first started our Digital Cafes it was an extended time to work on our projects and I would be available to help when needed. Also, it started with snacks and morphed into two meals. All for just $15. Well, it's time to get back to basics. It's time to get our photo projects done.
My Digital Cafes will be streamlined to give us all time to work on our photo projects. Plus the fee will be more in line with what guests receive.
Digital Café Fee: $15
Includes 12 hour crop, professional help from me & snacks and drinks.
Page sketches will not be permanently going away, just on a hiatus for a few months. When I bring them back... some will be FREE and posted to YouTube and others will be in kits on my store for purchase. I will have Virtual Sketch parties and it will give us a time to get sketches done if that is your groove.
For now I will log off and get this posted. It will take me a few days to get my website updated so this information is shared there as well. Thank you for your business and your understanding and I worked to help my customers with their photo projects.
I've loved photography all my life. Have been making photo albums since high school. I love helping people do something memorable with their photos. Have so much fun planning workshops for people to get together and work on their photo projects, share stories and fellowship. Looking forward to making this even easier with new products that will make it a snap to finish.
