I feel like I have butterflies fluttering around in my stomach right now. I present to you a clip of the DVD...
* Obviously the quality of the DVD will be much, much better than this clip. Our producer explained to us something about uploading a compressed file to a compressed site blah blah blah that proved to us why he is a producer and we are scrapbookers. The DVD was filmed in HD so believe me, it will be great!
I will admit that it is a little scary to put yourself out there. I sat at our computer the other day with Mike to watch this clip. I was so nervous for him to see it! A lot because he doesn't really know the dorky, scrapbooker side of me. He knows the smart ass, goofy, I-won't-annoy-my-hubby-with-my-super-dorky-scrapbooking-stuff side. The second the clip started I was picking myself apart. My voice, my clothes, my chin...seriously, everything! It got to the point that he made me leave the room so he could watch it.
I sat in the other room and worried that I was going to look like an idiot or sound stupid. I was starting to convince myself that this DVD was a bad idea and for all the wrong reasons. I was focusing on the things that don't really matter. All I want to come across on the DVD is my love for creating and sharing it with others. Who cares if I think I have a double chin or I was wishing I had not pulled my hair back.
It's not about that.
It's about getting the most out of your scrapbooking. It's about taking a sketch and using it over and over with each layout looking completely different. It's about using products in several different ways. It's about techniques that help to get the most out of those products. It's about helping a beginner to get started or give an advanced scrapbooker some ideas. And most important, it's about sharing a hobby that we all love, whether it's for the fun, creative escape or to preserve our memories for our families. :)
