Yearbook Boot Camp - preserving a year's worth of pictures in 8 weeks!

Have you preserved your photos and memories from last year yet?  What about 2016?  Or 2012, for that matter.  If it's been a while, or if you feel a little lost about the best way to go about preserving the myriad pictures you've got on your phone, camera, cloud, computer, etc., do yourself a favor and come to Yearbook Boot Camp.   It's all online!  And it makes {a fantastic gift that is meaningful for decades to come}.  

UPDATE:  Yearbook Boot Camp runs in the following 8-week sessions, so you can RSVP/register for upcoming YBCs at any time.  (Minimum 4 attendees in order to hold the session.)
Session 1:  September 16 - November 4, 2019
Session 2:  January 27 - March 16, 2020 REGISTRATION DUE JANUARY 24, 2020
Session 3:  fall 2020, dates TBA

Here's a little 1-minute teaser about Yearbook Boot Camp, then you can keep reading to find out details.  

In 8 weeks you will preserve one year's worth of photos and memories in a high-quality, well-organized hardbound book that you can gift your family for the holidays if you like.

Every Monday morning of Boot Camp, we'll "meet" at a 10-20 minute video call where you'll receive your assignment for the week and plenty of resources to help you complete it.  (And each video call will be recorded and emailed to you to watch later in the day if you can't make the call live.)  Then you'll set aside approximately 1-3 hours per week to complete your assignments.

Look at what you could have in just 8 weeks!  And I'm not talking about bargain bin "photo books," either--these are heirloom quality, fully editable books!!

"Jennifer is so professional and knowledgeable.  It was an excellent experience start to finish and the best part is you actually finish a family yearbook!  It's something my family will always treasure."  -Candace, Washington

There are 3 Yearbook sizes and many styles to choose from.  Using a template makes it go quickly, and EDITABLE templates by Heritage Makers give you lots of freedom and flexibility to make the pages exactly what you want.  There are 2 pages dedicated to each month of the year, but you have the option to add more pages if you like.

"Thank you for the workshop.  I have been scrapbooking for years but appreciate the format in which you broke it down in small chunks.  Never thought of that!  I'm happy to work with you." -Brenda

REGISTERING FOR YEARBOOK BOOT CAMP IS SO EASY!  Just email ASAP.  You'll receive an email with Venmo payment information.  Yearbook Boot Camp is only $20!  Once you're registered and paid, you'll receive an email with a link to our first video call (via Zoom).  

"This was a great boot camp!  I committed 3 hours a week (sometimes less) and I have a whole year of memories done for my kids.  This is super doable for anyone.  Jennifer was always super fast at responding and helping when I needed it."  -Elnora, New York

During Yearbook Boot Camp, I'll walk you right through all the steps of getting your pictures into something you can hold (and love!  and gift!).  The calls will only be about 10-20 minutes, depending on what we're talking about, and the assignments and helps (including step-by-step video tutorials) can be done whenever it's most convenient for you during the week.

Nothing better than that.

"Thank you Jennifer for doing the Yearbook Boot Camp.  As you know, I've done several calendars and storybooks with you, but you taught even this old dog some great new tricks that I will be able to use for years to come."  -Radeen, Colorado

Although this is (or can be) a physical gift you can give your family, it's also a personal gift that will keep on giving right back to you because you'll have the skills and knowledge you need to keep creating and preserving your precious photos and memories!

There's absolutely no time like the present, so don't delay!  (To register, all you have to do is email and tell me you're in.)  

See you soon at Yearbook Boot Camp!

"I love the way you have broken everything down.  I have ADHD and it's hard for me to keep up with things sometimes, but not this.  Your explanations are very clear.  I really appreciate it."  -anonymous


  1. Sounds interesting! Thanks so much for linking up at the #UnlimitedMonthlyLinkParty 4. Shared.

    1. Thanks for sharing this post, Dee! Much appreciated. Yes, I've been so pleased at the response to this Yearbook Boot Camp I'm running that I'm going to run it again in January. And probably again and again. Coming out with an heirloom-quality book at the end of 8 weeks with a whole year's worth of pictures in it is pretty great. :) I'm excited to lead people through it.
