It’s clear that many of you are entering the digital scrapbooking arena for the first time. We know it can be intimidating with so many tools and techniques to master. In my beginning self-paced workshop, Back to Basics, I offer a painless way to learn while producing your own projects. In four fun modules, you’ll discover how to use quick pages, templates and digital kits, how to create your own templates and lots more.
To encourage you to get started, we’re taking $10 off our regular $35 price for this weekend only! The price goes back on Monday, so don’t delay.
We’re also giving away one free registration if you comment today completing the following sentence:
I need Back to Basics because…

Last time, I shared my process for conceiving a new class. The mind mapping exercise was fun for my right-brain. Now it’s time for my left-brain to turn it into something I can actually deliver as a class. It’s time to organize those thoughts into a cohesive curriculum. That’s where we’re going next. (more…)
A question I get a lot from both students and other designers is, “How do you create and organize a brand new class?” My reply, “It’s a mystery wrapped in an enigma.” (Insert your own version of a smiley or LOL here.)
Actually, I do use an organized process while still allowing myself the creative freedom to follow new paths that open up. I’ve been working on a follow-up to Collage 101 for several months. The hold-up hasn’t been the lack of ideas. It’s the lack of time that has put this pet project on a back burner more times than I care to admit.
I have to confess there’s an ulterior motive to my sharing the development of this new class with you here. If I move the ball forward to tell you about it, then the ball is…well…moving forward! Sound like a plan, yes?
Let me bring you up to date on where I am now. (more…)
