This project has evolved! Continue the comments on Evolution 3!

I am just going to post this here as a little thing to think about → To this point, we are 4 people interested in being part of this project. If each one of us have the resources (maybe time being the top one...) to create 2 different projects/concepts, we will be just 2 projects short of making the book a reality. What does everybody thinks about this? :-)

There were 2-3 others interested in the project and I'm waiting for them to get on board. If it ends up just being us, I have no problem doing extra projects. I've been thinking about this more and would like to be able to release the eBook in April to celebrate Earth Day.

That sounds great! To be honest with you, I love the idea of having a deadline to work towards to. That is a thing that I really need to make it "real" on the emotional level.

Are we making chapters? or simply making projects & sharing? I have been thinking about this project & have come up with some ideas. I will be sharing some tips/ projects about stretching out kits and using up lots of bits. I also want to share some tutorials about how to use unexpected things (i.e. accents out of product packaging). Should I just set these blog posts up and then share them here? Sorry, I guess this turned in to a brain dump.

The initial idea was to include 10 or so scrapbook layouts and I didn't think of incorporating chapters, but... I do like the idea of adding tips and elaborating on the various ways to become a green scrapbooker. This is great. It's all about collaboration and that's what we're doing. I think we might need to "evolve" this project.

I guess brain drops are good in this case! I saw that earlier Danielle told Cathy that an already posted project was good for the book, so I'm guessing it is ok. I don't think Danielle is thinking about chapters, but just 10 projects... even when she may like the idea, either for this book or for a future one! Let's see what she says...

Also, I want to share some projects about resurfacing older products to use them on current projects. Like embossing older chipboard to bring up the metallic trend.

Danielle Hunter November 12, 2012 at 10:42am

Sure! You did this on a card, right? And I liked it!

Cathy Sanders November 2, 2012 at 6:40am

I've posted a project to my blog which show how I did some "recycling" on a layout... is this the sort of thing you want for the "book"?

Z. I. Sierra November 8, 2012 at 7:21pm

Cathy, would you mind to share the link to that post? I'd love to see your concept!

Z. I. Sierra November 12, 2012 at 12:51pm


Danielle Hunter November 2, 2012 at 2:32pm

I spotted your layout this morning and it's so creative! Yes! This will work for the eBook!

Z. I. Sierra October 25, 2012 at 10:09pm

QUESTION FOR EVERYBODY: Hey y'all! How are we coming along with our eco-friendly project for the book? I'd love to know how many of us are interested in participating, and what do each one of us propose for the project.

Danielle Hunter October 31, 2012 at 10:15am

We're still in the gathering of Collaborators phase. I'd like to get a few more people before we "Evolve" the project.

Z. I. Sierra October 12, 2012 at 10:47pm

Do you want all projects to be presented on a tutorial format? Or would you prefer a variety of formats to show the projects?

Danielle Hunter October 22, 2012 at 10:29am

Each project will have the basics: supply list + a paragraph about why you created the layout. If there are special techniques, yes, I think we should do tutorials too.

Z. I. Sierra October 4, 2012 at 6:45am

Ahem, ahem... Did I mention that, to distribute the ebook on my blog, I'd need to translate it into Spanish? It will generate a virtually unexisting interest if it is in English... I mean, I am volunteering to work on the translation. Are you ok with that?

Danielle Hunter October 4, 2012 at 9:44am

Yes! Of course!

Danielle Hunter October 1, 2012 at 10:34am

Z.I. - As of right now, there is no deadline for proposals either. What I would like to happen, is as Collaborators, we all work together and share our ideas and projects here. Once we have enough Collaborators who want to work on this e-book, we can decide whether or not to keep this project public or make it restricted.

Z. I. Sierra September 29, 2012 at 7:33pm

Even when you already stated on your blog that you don't have a deadline for the full project, do you have any sort of deadline for the proposals? Are you even checking proposals?

Danielle Hunter October 4, 2012 at 9:46am

No deadline. People interested in the project will need to work here.

Danielle Hunter September 29, 2012 at 3:47pm

Z.I.Sierra - Yes to minimalism. I don't want you to go out and buy new eco-friendly supplies for this project, but if you already own Jillibean Soup, Basic Grey or items from another "green" scrapbook company, go ahead and use those. Also, look at the things you normally throw away or recycle - how can you use these items in a scrapbook project?

Z. I. Sierra September 29, 2012 at 9:02am

I have a question, Danielle.

What if my approach is towards minimalism? You know not about having eco-conscious materials, but just heavily cutting on the supplies altogether. Would that be along the lines of your project?

Mindy Adams September 28, 2012 at 8:07am

I like The Eco-Conscious Scrapbooker's Guide to Memory Keeping for the title.
