Today is Thursday and I know you are excited for
but I might be just as excited because we have something very special, not to mention incredibly helpful, to give to you today. But before I tell you what it is, let me introduce our giveaway sponsor,
The Get It Scrapped! website, begun in April 2008, shares its name with the book Get It Scrapped! written by site owner Debbie Hodge. The goal of both is to help scrapbookers, journalers, photographers, and all manner of diarists get their stories onto the page efficiently and well.
At Get It Scrapped!, over a dozen experienced teachers offer online classes covering scrapbook page design and technique, photo editing, art journaling, digital techniques, stamping, photography, and more. Classes concentrate on teaching skills rather than specific projects.
The two things central to every class at Get It Scrapped! are: 1) extensive written and illustrated lessons suitable for printing and future reference; and 2) active participation by teachers in the private class forums. Many classes are supplemented with video and live chats.
Even self-paced classes at Get It Scrapped! have a strong support component. As you will see if you are the lucky number in today's giveaway.
Today, you can leave a comment for a chance to be selected for a pass to the newest self-paced class on the Get It Scrapped! roster: Shutterfly Savvy
with Pattie Knox. This class includes 6 detailed lessons, 4 digital page kits from the designers at DesignerDigitals, 16 page templates by teacher Pattie Knox, extensive forum support, and one 8”x8” Shutterfly photo book with a photo hard cover (not soft, not padded) to be ordered by 12/15/09.
Would you like to make photo books that are laid out to suit your photos? Would you like to use backgrounds, frames, and other charming details that are tailored to your album subject? Shutterfly Savvy, takes you step-by-step through the process for installing the necessary software, using digital templates to arrange your photos on the page in ways standard photobook formats don't allow, adding digital papers and embellishments of your choice, and getting all of this uploaded and laid out at the popular photobook service Shutterfly. Create your photo book once, and order as many copies as you like for friends and family.
Our Write. Click. Scrapbook. team loves to use minialbums as an effective way to not only preserve memories, but also burn through a stack of photos. And with Pattie's guidance to learn the in's and out's of Shutterfly, you will soon have a very effective tool in your box of tricks for making cool and delightful minialbums. (And the best part of Shutterfly albums? the "how many" button. With just the click of a button, you can print one for you, another for your mom, and a third for your mother-in-law. With the click of just one button. One little button. For familial and marital bliss. Try it. You'll see!)
If you would like to take this class you may sign up here. Or you may leave a comment telling us what kind of class you find most helpful (such as technique, tool, design, product...) and we will select one of you to get it for free! Comments will close at 8:00 pm PST and the lucky number will be drawn at random thereafter.
Don't forget it is the responsibility of the person behind the number to contact us at writeclickscrapbook at gmail dot com by midnight Saturday to claim their gift!
