Hi.

Welcome to my blog! I write, and take photos, and use Photoshop every day. I love learning and surprises and my sweet family and being a transplanted southerner.

Retiring Classes: Digital Scrapbooking Series

Well friend, I've been teaching digital scrapbooking for a long time: I started in the middle of 2007 with 240 students in my very first class, and have taught or remade almost a dozen month-long classes since then. Among all of the classes in all their iterations, tens of thousands of students have learned Photoshop and built their creative skills with me as their guide, and I have loved it. Right now (until December 31), you can take the entire four-class series, which includes intermediate, advanced, and expert techniques for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. January 1, the three more advanced courses will retire from sale.

Of course, the skills you learn in these classes go way, way beyond making pages to preserve the stories of your life. You'll learn all the important Photoshop tools, and techniques with type, brushwork, page composition, pattern, embellishment, and photo enhancement that will knock your socks off!

Digital Scrapbooking 1: Up & Running 

The series begins with Digital Scrapbooking 1: Up & Running with Photoshop, which is new from 2013 and is NOT retiring - you'll be able to register for this class after December 31 or give it as a gift - but right now it's on sale for 25% off.

Digital 1 is a really BIG class - containing TEN individual lessons and all the supplies you'll need to create these pages and dozens more. This class starts at the very basics with how to open and close files, how to add embellishments, paper, and type, and then progresses through creating various pages until you're making complete scrapbook pages on your own.

After you've finished the beginner class, you'll want to begin deepening your skills with the techniques I teach in Now We're Rockin' with Photoshop. This class is divided into four intense lessons, rather than ten smaller ones, and also includes midweek lessons and a huge exclusive bonus kit. If you're looking for an item for someone who is interested in furthering their digital education, this class is it!

We'll use custom shapes, create simple and complex selections, and of course - lots and lots of masking! We use gradients, adjustment layers, selections and shapes to create masks of every kind. You will LOVE the amazing art you can create with these techniques!

Digital Scrapbooking 4: Digi: In Deeper (Retiring)

Was $79

Now $39.50

The final class in my digital scrapbooking series is Digi: In Deeper, and if you are a Photoshop user with 1+ years of solid experience, this class is for you! In this challenging class we dive deep into Photoshop techniques of course, but we also explore design principles and different styles of making work. 

This class contains TWELVE awesome lessons divided into four different visual styles, including clean/graphic, freestyle, shabby, and whimsical. Each lesson begins with a sketch, which you'll be expected to complete before beginning the video lesson that demonstrates that layout's techniques. You'll love the independence you gain in this class format, speeding through the basics you already know and jumping right to the fun stuff!

The intermediate, advanced, and expert digital scrapbooking classes are all 50% off, and frankly, I am sad to see them retiring in their current formats. I'm so proud of these classes, and thousands of students have taken the entire series from beginning to end. I think learning how to get around in Photoshop is a life skill - one that has a learning curve, certainly, but this investment is one that you'll be grateful for and use for the rest of your life. Imagine being able to make that 50th anniversary album, or that special wall decor gift, or a poster for your kid's school, a flyer for your church meeting. These skills easily translate to anything you can imagine, and give you the creative tools to make those a reality. I believe that. 

As you can see, I love this too much to really be going anywhere. I'll be exploring and teaching and sharing digital scrapbooking, memory keeping, photo editing, storytelling, family history, and general geekdom forever, I think. But when it's time for renew and refresh, it's time. I hope you can take advantage of these classes while they're still available and 50% off - you can take them at your own pace forever after that!
