I got a peek at “Your December Story” and I’m giving away a free pass

I checked out lesson 1 of Debbie Hodge’s Your December Story this weekend, and I want to tell you about the class and give you a peek at how it’s inspired me. And I’m giving away one pass to the class. (If you already purchased the class, you’ll get a $24 gift card good for any other GIS/MSD classes.)

Your December Story is shaped around the Hero’s Journey

This December, like Dorothy dropped into Oz or Alice tumbled into Wonderland, you will receive a call to adventure. You will move from the ordinary world into a one of magic and tests as the holiday season arrives.

Many of the most-loved and best remembered stories play out in a story form described by Joseph Campbell as “the hero’s journey.” This class has prompts and page ideas for visual storytelling that have you telling Your December Journey, from the heralds, to the challenges, mentors, special tools and the return to the known world and what you take forward.

You can take the journey and get a $10 gift card . . .

but only through midnight Wednesday, November 20th. When you purchase “Your December Story” by midnight PT, Wednesday, November 20, you also get a $10 gift card that you can use for Get It Scrapped and Masterful Scrapbook Design classes. Click here to purchase Your December Story and get the $10 gift card.

This is what I think of the class and how it inspired me

Debbie has such a unique way of looking at scrapbooking, and recording your story. I had decided earlier that I wanted to do a special project this December but wasn’t sure what form it would take. I tried a December Daily one year but to be honest, we don’t really do Christmassy things every day in December – some days are full of holiday activities, some days are just well, Wednesdays. 🙂 But there are definitely things to record and this class of Debbie’s provides a huge amount of inspiration for many, many layouts to record the season. I particularly enjoyed the section on the “Heralds of the Season” – what marks the entry into the holiday season for you. I was inspired to create a layout about my first pass at Christmas cards this year — I’m actually hoping to create another version of the card when I get a photo of my kids together but now that I had one already to go, the pressure is off. This is what I made:
