30 days of showing up

Create accountability, document your life, and show up for yourself, for 30 days straight.

Right now you’re stuck in your house, scrolling on Instagram, looking at all the pretty things that everyone is making, and thinking about your to-do list of unfinished (un-started?) projects over in the corner. It’s cool. We’re in a crazy time, add whatever the holidays are going to bring to the mix, and who knows what we’re in for this year.

But that’s why it’s more important than ever for you to have your own creative habit.

Your story matters and it is essential for you to be documenting your life right now. We are in unprecedented times, and there isn’t anyone else who is going through it the same way that you are.

Scrapbooking Daily Pages are simultaneously an act of self-care, a self-discovery practice, and a simple way to show up for yourself.

Daily Pages can be created in conjunction with your favorite December project. So whatever you’re already creating, you can use the Daily Pages method to make sure that you’re getting those special projects crafted in the way that matters most to you. 

You might think that you need a ton of time, space, special supplies or products, to start scrapbooking your life.


The legit truth is you can scrapbook your life with just:

Whether you’ve never scrapbooked a day in your life or you’re ready to start making time for yourself, your stories and your creative habit, let the Scrapbook Daily Pages: 30 Days of Showing Up class help you.

Here is the full breakdown of Scrapbook Daily Pages: 30 Days of Showing Up

On Saturday, November 28th and Sunday, November 29th. We’re having a great two day mini prep weekend for you to get set up with your December project. rukristin will be sharing live tutorials (these will be recorded and placed in the classroom). There will be multiple open sessions each day for you to get your December project prepared. 

Whether you’re the kind of person that likes working with a group who likes to chat, a group who likes to listen to xmas music, or a group that likes to just put their head down and work with some accountability friends — we’ve got the space for you. 

Live Tutorials:

  • Setting Up Your Project Design Kit on Paper or Digitally
  • DIY Stamped Holiday Tags
  • Using Canva to Create Digital Printables for your December Project 

Workbooks are an rukristin favorite. As a paper person, and someone who loves filling out worksheets,  you can always expect a fun workbook to go along with a signature rukristin class.  I’ve designed this one specifically for Scrap Daily Pages: 30 Days of Showing Up .

It’ll help you out if you’ve never done Daily Pages before. If you’re brand new to this project, it’s a great introduction to the practice and to helping you pick out an album/notebook.

It’s also got prompts, worksheets, and rukristin’s favorite tips for making this habit work for you and your life. It’s an awesome companion piece to have with you throughout this month of investing in yourself. 

This one has ways for you to brainstorm and keep notes throughout the month of the various things you’re learning during this process of showing up.

  • Intro to Daily Pages
  • Top Tips from rukristin
  • 40+ Prompts
  • Brainstorming worksheets
  • and more

Every day at Noon ET rukristin will be online and creating a space for you to create that day’s Daily Page you’re invited!

You are encouraged to bring your album or notebook and scrapbook your Daily Page (or whatever project you’re working on) along with Kristin and the community.

Every Monday – Saturday at Noon ET rukristin will be creating her December Daily Page live on her overhead camera before we gather for a quick participant share session. On Sundays we’ll have ‘Small Group Sunday’ where rukristin will break everyone up into small groups and students will get a chance to work on projects and share 

You will learn how to show up each day, foster a daily creative habit, tell your stories, and craft your pages in a way that works for you.

Our video dates are about 35-40 minutes long for a welcome, rukristin’s teaching/creating, and quick show and tell at the end. We are going to have the best time. 

Every session will be recorded, placed into the classroom, and sent to your inbox each afternoon. This way, even if you can’t make the live recording, it’s very easy for you to participate in the course each day.

It also means that you can come back and watch your favorite Daily Pages videos over and over again. You will retain access to this course and these videos even after our December 30th end date!

Our community is here for you throughout the entire process, with galleries, forums, an unlimited video hangout spot and a kick-ass social media alternative space for a much healthier scroll.

So many of us are stuck at home right now, having a much different December than expected. The Awesome Ladies Project is a community that is a place that you can call home for the next month (or longer). This is a great way to get together with like-minded women who love and appreciate telling their own stories as well. You deserve a community that supports you in your creativity and your storytelling. The ALP is here for you. 

If you take this course, you will develop a habit of showing up for yourself, your stories, your creativity, and so much more.

Yeah, but who am I?

and why should you listen to me anyway?

rukristin welcome

Hi, I’m Kristin (aka rukristin: Feminist Scrapbooker) and I have been scrapbooking for more than twenty years. I’ve made hundreds of scrapbooks and tens of thousands of scrapbook pages.

But, scrapbooking has not always come easy. Throughout my journey, I’ve had people tell me that I have no business scrapbooking because I don’t have a proper family (kids or a husband), or that I shouldn’t bother scrapbooking my life because why would anyone ever care about that stuff anyway? Legitimate real-life trolls and haters. I kid you not, there were actually human beings who said this stuff to my face.

But I don’t scrapbook for them, I scrapbook for myself. I do it because I’m a paper person. I love playing with pretty paper. I’m a picture person, I love taking photos (even when all I had was a disposable camera in middle school). I love gathering up the bits of life and sticking them into notebooks.

Did it bother me when those randos were like, that thing that you’re passionate about? It’s stupid and it doesn’t matter. Sure, but only for a second. I’m never going to get validation from every single person in the world, and my time is so much better spent, seeking validation from myself. And so is yours.

INFJ Daily Page Notebook

My struggles haven’t always been external either. I have two overlapping headache disorders that have made my days pretty painful. Through a lot of hard work with the right doctor and figuring out a lifestyle that works for me. I can spend more days creating + longer hours at my desk. And through it all, scrapbooking was there for me when a lot of things no longer could be.

Even when I couldn’t get off the couch; I brought my supplies to the coffee table.

Even when I couldn’t go out as much as I used to, I started scrapbooking things like my favorite TV shows and the things I was making for dinner.

Even when my face was swollen from a migraine, I still snapped a selfie because this is my life and the struggle is part of the story.

I learned that when I documented the hard stuff:

  1. It made me more grateful for the good stuff
  2. While it was happening the hard stuff didn’t seem as hard
  3. Afterward, upon reflection, I realized just how strong and resilient I was during those hard times
  4. There is still so much joy & creativity during the hard times and I owed it to myself to practice that as much as possible

I have taught thousands of women how to scrapbook their stories. Whether you’re just starting out and only have a notebook and a pen, or you’ve got a room or two filled with supplies, there are a few things I know about women like us. We are capable women. We know that women’s stories have been sidelined for too long, even if we don’t know exactly where to start with our own.

We have awesome stories and we do really cool things with our lives. We are teachers, we are students, we craft, we swim, we read, we are people moms, we are plant moms, we live in New York, Kansas, Australia, and so many other amazing places on this planet. Whether we are world travelers or we love staying at home all the time or something in between, we all have lives worth documenting and I’m passionate about helping you document yours. 

I know that your story matters. I know that you are the best person to tell that
story. You are the only person who has been there the entire time, and that
makes you uniquely qualified to tell your stories.

You might say that you don’t have the time or you don’t have the talent or you don’t have the supplies.

None of that matters.

You can do this in just a few minutes a day.

It doesn’t take talent to start sticking paper into a notebook.

You don’t need a ton of supplies to get started. All you need is a notebook and whatever else you have at home.

The only thing that’s standing in your way is your misconception of what scrapbooking is and has to be.

Scrapbooking your story can be a badass empowering form of documenting your life where you choose the rules and I’m here to make it as easy + accessible as possible.

Right Now, More than Ever, You Need to Show Up For Yourself (let me help you with that)

The most important advice I have for you right now, to get through these crazy times is to show up. Not to set unrealistic goals that you can’t possibly meet and then beat yourself up when they don’t work out.

You need to show up in a way that works for your life.

Your life does not look like everyone else’s life, so it’s okay to find solutions that don’t look like everyone else’s. As long as you show up in a way that is authentic to who you are, you can move through periods of transition and struggle while keeping yourself grounded in what you know and love.
