Course description

The Holiday Project is a 4-week self-paced course where scrappers will be challenged to create 1 album that will feature 12 holiday stories. That's it...only 12 stories! Through creative story prompts, we will begin to explore a variety of stories that might not otherwise be told: childhood holiday memories, family traditions, events, experiences, recipes, stories told through multiple perspectives, loss, failure, celebrations, heritage stories, just to name a few.

Scrappers will be led through a series of lessons that will focus on storytelling, using creative prompts, exploring album styles, and how to commit to The Holiday Project process. By the end of this class, scrappers will have the tools needed to start and finish this project! All it takes is 12 stories...that's it! You can do this!

This course includes:

  • Weekly instructional content - available on Mondays (4 Weeks in November)
  • Instructional Study Guide PDFs
  • The Holiday Project Story Prompts PDF - to get your storytelling juices flowing!
  • Project Planner PDF - to help you plan and manage your project
  • Project Calendar PDF - to help you set a realistic timeframe for completing this project
  • Exclusive Sketches to inspire your creativity!
  • Access to the exclusive The Holiday Project Facebook Group - for support and inspiration!
  • FREE Victoria Marie YouTube Process Videos - a demonstration of my album set up and layout process.

Weekly Content:

  • Week 1: The Story - Includes reflective writing exercises, review of story prompts and ideas.
  • Week 2: The Album - Discussion of album options and styles, how to choose the right album for you.
  • Week 3: The Commitment - Developing a realistic plan to complete this process, setting a timeline and goals.
  • Week 4: The Process - How to develop and use a creative-flow process to help you complete this project.

After the class is finished, we will begin the documenting and storytelling process starting December 1st!

What a thoughtful project

by PLynn Harris
I truly enjoy how Victoria breaks things down to smaller 'chunks' so they do seem doable. I haven't completely finished all the project yet but I HAVE written most of the stories. It was so fun to remember so many things about my childhood and the holidays/Christmas' that I remember. When it's completely done it will be a very nice keepsake for my children. Thanks so much for your expertise and guidance Victoria!
