Today I want to let you know about a fabulous new online class! My dear friend, Lisa, has recently published a series of 10 scrapbooking lessons called Creative Cardstock. If you're like me, you probably have a lot of plain cardstock in your stash, waiting for the muse to hit you so that you can use it up and move on to something more exciting! If so, Lisa's class can go a long way toward accomplishing that end. In fact, her tips show how to make the plain and ordinary much more appealing.
Lisa offers a great deal in her class. As a former Fortune 500 trainer, she knows how to showcase her scrapbooking process, providing clear, thoughtful video instruction and examples. She makes it simple and enjoyable. Lisa also provides a "handout" for each lesson that you can print out for later reference. This course is an exceptional value for what you learn.
Now, because I told you that Lisa's my friend, you may want additional information from others. So drop on over to Lisa's YouTube channel, where more than 1460 people have subscribed to her videos. You may also be interested in her blog.
In the interest of fairness, I disclose that Lisa asked me to help her test parts of her class before she made it available to the public. I can also tell you that I wouldn't endorse it if I didn't feel it was worth every penny. You can read the full course description here.
I used some of Lisa's ideas (and layout) to complete this two-page spread:
I have 20 pictures on this layout I titled "Girl Meets Ocean." (It was my niece's first encounter with the beach!) Thankfully, I was able to crop my pictures to show the main ideas and fully capture this vacation trip. I've used a number of products and techniques for this layout: cropping, die-cutting, stamping, journaling, composition, color-matching, layering, misting, and more. I hope you like it!
Well, that's it for today. Please be sure to drop back in on Tuesday for a live video on how to print on die cut paper. Thanks for stopping by - and happy scrappin'!
