Up & Running with Photoshop goes Self-Paced!

So I’ve been thinking. Wouldn’t it be awesome if someone who was new to digital scrapbooking could just come and jump in to an Up & Running with Photoshop class at any time? And not have to wait 3-4 months for the next session to start? I’ve been hearing the same thing from you: you either refer your friends, who then have to get on a wait list, or you yourself are on the wait list. No more! You can scrap in your peej. You can register right now and go to class RIGHT NOW. Just like the world should be, right? If you can buy digital supplies at all hours of the night (and boy has this saved me a time or 10 the night before a project was due), then why the heck shouldn’t you be able to take a class at all hours too?

Up & Running has gone Self-Paced. So that’s the story. You can take Up & Running with Photoshop right now. Same great vids. Same awesome freebies. Same content available to you forever. Same lovin’ and attention on the General message board and gallery for questions and posting layouts. All the love, none of the wait.

Oh, and we knocked 4 bucks off the price. Oh yes.

Just for beginners. So if YOU or someone you love would like to dip a toe into digi, this is the chance. To see if this thing is REALLY for you, and worth it, and what all the craze/excitement/insanity is about, and why your digi friends (if you see them at all and not just chat with them online) have that pale face and glassy-eyed look about them, now you can know, too. Huh. I’m actually not making this sound that attractive. :P But seriously. You’re gonna love it.

Here are the answers to questions I often get.

1. If your computer is running any of the SUPPORTED versions of Photoshop, you’ll be great! These include:

  • Photoshop Elements 4, 5, or 6
  • Photoshop CS, CS2, or CS3

If you are running Photoshop 7, you will probably want to upgrade, or switch over to Elements. I only say that because PS7 is old. Really old. Adobe doesn’t support it anymore, and there are features that you’re totally missing. Basic ones.

2. You don’t have to be online at a certain time. Scrap in the middle of the night. Scrap on your couch while you pretend to pay attention to that sports/action movie with DH or Noggin with the kids. Scrap first thing in the morning, or on weekends. Anytime. :)

3. You don’t have to be a computer genius or even know anything about digital to get started. We start really, really basic. And if you’re not confident with your computer skills, you’ll be one of the ones that notices the very most improvement from the start to the finish of this class.

So if you’ve been hesitating, or on the wait list, or if you’ve been searching for the perfect gift to give to your mom/sister/babysitter/sister-in-law/grandma/wife/husband/friend, Up & Running is a gift of knowledge and skill that will last your loved one for the rest of their lives. 

It’s great being here at CKU. Seeing all the scrapbookers and hanging out with SO many people with such passion. That’s hard to get when you’re the only digital scrapbooker you know in real life, you know? It’s why so many of us spend so much time online, I think. :) So here’s a way to spread the love:

You can have 10% off of the class fee, from now until the end of August. It’ll be Back to School for everyone. :D

How’s that for lovin’ from the Spraguelab? :D

Have a wonderful Friday! I will spend the day with my lovely sister, Julie, who is taking my digital class tomorrow, along with several dozen other brave ladies and gents who took the risk to bring a laptop to CKU. Can’t wait! Wish us all luck! :D
