|EcoScrapbooking: Crafty Ideas for Eco-Conscious Scrapbookers|
What began as an idea nine months ago, blossomed into a collaborative eBook focusing on eco-friendly scrapbooking. Nine scrapbookers from around the world joined me as we developed a free scrapbooking eBook jam packed with creative and "green" inspiration.
Join us today as we celebrate the launch of EcoScrapbooking: Crafty Ideas for Eco-Conscious Scrapbookers.
Before you run off to check out the eBook, I'd like for you to meet all the wonderfully talented designers who I appreciate more than words can express. Visit their blogs for more eco-friendly ideas not featured in our scrapbooking eBook:

What takes this project to the next level were the efforts of Zaira and Lisa who volunteered their time to translate the eBook into other languages. Zaira took over the Spanish translations, while Lisa tackled Dutch. Both of these eBooks will also be available for download in the near future.
You have two options to view EcoScrapbooking: Crafty Ideas for Eco-Conscious Scrapbookers: visit the EcoScrapbook Pressbooks site to view it online or click here for the PDF (preferably not to print, just to view and download...we're trying to be environmentally conscious today).
This eBook is free for you to view and you may share the link within your own scrapbooking community. Let's change how the world scrapbooks!
