There's a Better Way to Scrapbook

The weeks fly by. There's so much you want to document, but you can't keep up with it all. You wonder what your haphazard approach to scrapbooking is really adding up to. You're eager to have a clear plan for your memories that's fun, easy to follow, and that actually gets D-O-N-E.

Welcome to the 2018 Planning Party at Simple Scrapper. You will learn how to plan your scrapbooking year so that your hobby fills you up and fits your life. This will be the year you craft with intention.

My name is Jennifer Wilson and I'm your guide at Simple Scrapper.

I'm wife to a busy hydrologist, mom to a first grader, stepmom to two adult sons, and a passionate creative business owner. Wearing so many hats is certainly a juggle, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. I started Simple Scrapper in 2008 as a way to explore my own journey in scrapbooking, because I knew there had to be a better way.

The 2018 Planning Party is a free video series to help you get ready for a productive creative year. I'll be sharing what you can expect at Simple Scrapper in 2018 as well as a step-by-step roadmap for making this your best year yet. I've also opened up deeply-discounted annual memberships at a price you won't see again.


Free Planning Party

The 2018 Planning Party is a FREE event for the entire Simple Scrapper community in conjunction with our Annual Membership Launch. There are four live events, which will be recorded and shared here.

2018 Book Club Picks

What books will inspire you, shift your perspective, or change your life in the year ahead?

The Simple Scrapper Book Club is a community of smart women figuring out what works best for living a joyful, creative life. Each month we read a non-fiction selection and have a conversation connecting the ideas to scrapbooking. It's FREE to participate.

The choices for 2018 are revealed in this video. Hear why we're excited about each selection and how the Book Club can enrich your creative experience.

2018 Simple Scrapper Preview

One of my top values is to listen first and talk second. (It doesn't hurt that this comes naturally for me as an introvert.)

This year I've been leaning in close to hear what you really need from a community and online resources. I've conducted polls and small group discussions, all leading towards small shifts to make Simple Scrapper even better.

I'm excited to share what we have planned for the year ahead.

Recipe for a Playful and Productive 2018

I've got a secret recipe for this better way to scrapbook.

Since 2008 I've helped thousands of scrapbookers find their own simple path to more creative joy. It doesn't require buying new supplies or changing how you prefer to create. In fact, my recipe only uses ingredients you already have on hand.

In this session you will learn how to set yourself up for success in 2018, get a sneak peek at a brand new tool to keep you on track, and receive a bite-sized homework activity to get the ball rolling.

What Members Say About Us

"Simple Scrapper is helping me to balance my hobbies within the rest of my life. The practical aspects of looking at what I am doing and why am I doing it are very helpful. The mix of planning, organizing and creating works well for me. It feels more successful, productive, creative, and fun."


"Jennifer is a genius at creating an experience which allows and nudges one to be more aware and see new connections. LOVE!"


"The Simple Scrapper attitude has changed me over the past couple of years. I only have ONE unfinished project, and only a couple of things I want to start. I love knowing I am already doing what fills me up and does not overwhelm me."


"I just wanted to join in and thank you for providing so much inspiration, motivation, and a renewed sense of purpose. I had just been so unmotivated this past year. All I could think was, “I need to scrapbook.” But the amount of projects I wanted to start/complete was so enormous, I never felt motivated to even begin. But now, I feel so empowered. I also want to say how much I felt a part of the wonderful community you have created here."


"As much as I enjoy scrapbooking and documenting our family's adventures, at times I’ve felt super stressed and overwhelmed. That’s not the way I want to feel about something that’s supposed to be enjoyable. Thank you so much for getting me to think out of the box. I’m feeling relieved and at peace. I’m really looking forward to [the new year] and all that I’ll be able to accomplish. I’m excited to feel excited about my scrapbooking again, instead of feeling as though I’m going to slog my way through for another year."


"When I first started following you, I had almost stopped scrapbooking. I just couldn't give myself permission to take the time and I felt too overwhelmed by how many pictures I wanted to scrapbook. I'm happy to say you have helped me see it is an important priority that I have a right to make time for. You helped me see how I can take this "elephant" of a challenge one bite at a time. I just finished an album of my daughter's childhood pictures!"


"This year has been awesome and amazing at Simple Scrapper. I became a member because you spoke to me in every article or video. It was like you were getting into my head and designing Simple Scrapper around my needs and thinking. I loved scrapbooking, but I always felt something was missing. I frequently commented that I wasn't particularly crafty or artistic, but that my hobby brought me joy. This year I am doing it my way and that joy is greater than it has ever been."


"Jennifer I just wanted to send an email to thank you and let you know how much I appreciate everything you do for your members. This last couple of months since becoming a member I have been more productive than I have in the last few years creatively. Starting with [the member retreat], my creative life changed. I am focused and motivated. Even when I don't feel my mojo is there, I know where to look. I am so organised without feeling overwhelmed and I can close my planner at night knowing I have been productive in all areas of my life. I can now go to sleep feeling accomplished and content. I can't thank you enough, I have at last found creative peace."
