Get My Photoshop for Kids class FREE!

I'm looking for a few volunteers to help me test and review my new album class called My Awesome Life: Photoshop for Kids class! If you have a child between the ages of 10-16, I'll provide you (both) with FREE permanent access to the class in exchange for photos or images of your completed album, plus feedback on the lessons and a review of the class itself.

Pages 2-3 of the 20-page album, all about them!

Pages 2-3 of the 20-page album, all about them!

What It Is

The class is divided into 11 lessons, which should take your child about 60 minutes each. It's recorded in Photoshop CC, with cut-scene video showing any differences in Photoshop Elements.

What They Do

Each lesson is centered on one two-page spread, and includes instruction on how to get the images in to the file, plus at least one BRAND NEW technique each lesson (including selecting, drawing, outlining, cutting from alphabets, type, and more). They'll cut their files apart and save them for print and the web. 

At the end of the course they'll upload all their album pages using PaperKiwi (although any book printer, such as Shutterfly or Blurb, will work great), and receive their precious album in the mail. 

Who It's For

This class is geared toward kids ages 10-16, and comes in two distinct colorways perfect for girls or boys - and they get to pick which one! 

All they'll need is a digital camera (a phone camera works just fine!), and a little guidance how to get their photos onto their computer ready to use, and I'll show them the rest!

I'm really excited about this class and about teaching kids how to use Photoshop. This is a GREAT way to develop skills that will last them a lifetime!

What They'll Get

In addition to the amazing end result (a 20-page album with details of their life as it is right now), they'll gain the confidence that comes with learning real-world skills, and applying their own photos and writing to a project they'll create from start to finish. 

The skills they'll learn in Photoshop are an incredible investment that will benefit them for life - not only way out there, but RIGHT NOW, as they work on projects for school, gifts, invitations, decorations for their room, and much more. Photoshop is a tool they'll use forever, and they can learn it right now. 

What I Need From You

Please drop an email to support@jessicasprague.zendesk.com to apply, plus tell me:

  • Age & gender of your child
  • Your own level of Photoshop experience, and

include a link to a portfolio, gallery, or other place we can see your work, plus links to your blog/facebook/twitter/other

Thank you so much! I can't wait to see what they make!

Free Halloween Banner Printable!

Halloween is my favorite time of year! I love decorating my house and yard, and getting dressed up! I love the color scheme too! Orange, black, gray, brown.. the fall colors come together so well.

In honor of October, I created this so-cute Halloween banner using the Chillingsworth Manor kit from Echo Park. It's my favorite Halloween kit. Seriously. 

So I created flag and coffin shapes, and you'll find lots of cute vintage-style ghoulies! The download comes with two .jpg files you can print onto letter-sized photo paper or presentation paper. Cut them out, hang them on baker's twine with little clothespins, or sew them together, or tape them, whatever you like! 

When you're done, take a pic and post it! I'd love to see what you make!

Here's a preview of the banner:

And here's what the pages look like when you download them (these are the low resolution images - be sure to click the download link to get the printables!)

Happy 12.12.12!

For the last time this century, we have a very auspicious triple date today! Luck will change, stars will align, the universe will smile on us.

And to get that started, we’ve cooked up a great deal on one of my very favorite projects this year - Photohsop Friday 2012! Every Friday this year (and for the next 3 weeks), I’ve created an awesome video tutorial showing a specific technique in Photoshop, and tossed in a digital scrapbook template, AND a printable PDF showing 6 ways to use the technique. The year-long subscription included a GIANT (350MB) kit of digital items (papers, brushes, embellishments) that can be used in all these templates and beyond.

At the beginning of the year, this collection of awesomenesswas $70.

Now that we are winding down what has been a year full of change for me, and in honor of this Day of the Smiling Universe, I’m putting the 2012 Photoshop Friday on sale for $24.

With 52 tutorials, templates, that is basically .50 a lesson, even without the 52 templates to help you complete the pages right along with me. Merry and bright? Oh, I think so.

Photoshop Friday 2012 disappears on December 31. It might resurface broken up and in other formats, we’ll see. 

But this is the last opportunity to grab this screaming deal, that will help YOU:

  • get more done
  • learn a whole lot of Photoshop, and
  • feed your digital supply collecting habit (ahem)

All in one shot. Seriously good.

Here is a little preview of some of the (52!) pages you can make:

You can purchase the entire Photoshop Friday tutorial set for instant, permanent access, OR you can tell someone you really, really love them by grabbing the gift version of Photoshop Friday!

FREE HOLIDAY TEMPLATE

AND just because the universe is smiling on YOU particularly for reading this far, how about a FREE HOLIDAY GIFT? I’ve created a free template to celebrate the season, and here it is:

Click here to download the template in a .zip file.

Pretty nice, no? I would love to see a linkback here, or in Pinterest (my board or the JS.com board), or on our Facebook page when you complete a layout with this template!

(If you aren’t sure how a template works, consider registering for my new upcoming digital scrapbooking class called Photoshop 1 for Digital Scrapbooking. You’ll love it!)
