Finally! I'm so proud to share the front cover of the soon-to-be-released Scrapbook Generation DVD with you! The complete title is "Stretch Your Scrapbooking with Allison Davis," and it is unlike anything you've seen before in the scrapbooking market. (And didn't sister Stacey do a great job on the cover design?)

Allison, with helper Stacey, teaches nine classes in about two hours on the DVD. There are three "chapters," each using a specific paper line: My Mind's Eye, Pink Paislee, and Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker. Each chapter has three layouts based on a sketch, and features three degrees of difficulty. There is a "simple" layout, an "enhanced" layout, and an "extreme" layout for each sketch and manufacturer.

Allison takes you through the steps of constructing the page, providing great tips on specific techniques. In addition to two cameras capturing the action from the front, there is a "bird's eye view" camera so that you can see her actually making the layout from an awesome vantage point -- looking directly down on the page. And another great feature is that you can follow along with her, using your own papers, at home! Just follow the suggested paper "key" that comes with each sketch.

In addition, the DVD has 25 printable double-page sketches -- all new -- so that you can have them on your computer screen while you are working at your scrapbooking table, or print them out to take with you to a crop or retreat!

To make the sketches even more usable, there is a layout gallery of 75 layouts, three for each of the 25 sketches! Some of the most beautiful pages Allison has ever made are featured on the DVD, and you'll be able to have them easily accessible, in full color, to use as inspiration.

Right now, you can pre-order the DVD by going to the SG website and providing your name and telephone number. Payment of $19.99 (great savings off the regular price of $24.99) isn't due until the DVD is released in about two-three weeks. By acting now, you can lock in the lower price. After the DVD is released, the regular price goes into effect.

The DVD will be available at SG, on our website, and also on In addition, our DVD project is getting notice from around the country. We've had inquiries from other retail stores, from major scrapbooking manufacturers, and from a major chain of craft stores about it, and also about our series of sketch books. This opens up a whole new set of opportunities for us, and we continue to believe that big things are getting ready to unfold for these products. Thanks so much to our Springfield area customers for being the ones to get us started on this exciting journey!
