Scrapbooking, like witnessing a gentleman chop down a tree so his date may cross a moat, is a wholesome reminder of the past. Lower the drawbridge for scrap-happy memories with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a digital scrapbooking class at Pictures with Purpose (a $30 value). Classes are held on the first Saturday of each month from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m and on the third Thursday of each month from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Pictures with Purpose’s digital scrapbooking classes eschew scissors and glue in favor of creative, computerized presentations. During each class, master scrapbooker Yolanda Ray teaches participants how to create their own paperless memory mélange. Attendees need only bring their laptops and six to eight digital photos, which they will then convert to online keepsakes via the company's intuitive Studio software. Digital images culled from hard drives, memory cards, and even cell phones can be dragged, dropped, and cropped to create heartwarming digital showcases. Although no previous scrapbooking experience is necessary, students are encouraged to bone up on their knowledge of scrapbook history, including the great construction-paper famine of 1986.
