Online Scrapbook Classes: “Move More Eat Well Jumpstart” by Cathy Zielske and Big Picture Classes

Hey scrappers! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas time and are enjoying your holiday break, if you get one.

We’ve had family visiting, a glorious day at the beach, meals at home and out, camping (brrrrr!), and are now home enjoying some immediate family time before everyone goes back to work and school. I got a lot of reading done on the trip and am now catching up on work, chores, and laundry.

No, I still haven’t had time to play with my new SILHOUETTE CAMEO, dangit! But soon, I hope!

I’ve been trying to watch what I eat throughout the holidays and, even while indulging a bit here and there (I mean, lasagna and Chinese food . . . what am I, made of iron??) – I’ve managed to lose 11 pounds in December. With the new year coming and wanting to stay motivated, I’ve been contemplating taking “Move More Eat Well Jumpstart” with Cathy Zielske through Big Picture Classes.

You can see a class synopsis, the price, and schedule at the link above ^^^.

There’s also a cool video by Cathy Z. where she tells more about the class and you can see some examples of the printable cards you’ll get. You can also see the pretty little album she uses that goes perfectly with all the cards.

{HINT: It’s THIS ONE but in Kiwi green, LOL!

I love to take online scrapbooking classes but I haven’t taken one through BPC before. I’ve heard good things about them, although some consider their classes a little pricey in general. To me, the price for this one seems reasonable . . . about $1/day. I figure I’ll be saving more than that just in food spending, bwahaha!

I love the idea of using the Project Life mini album because they’re easy to handle so I feel like I’d look through it a lot. Instead of this being a 1-month weight loss/health motivation, I figure I’ll reference back to it throughout the year. Who knows? If it goes well and I love the process, I can keep it going through 2014 and keep adding new PL mini albums. {I notice that they come in lots of cute colors which are on sale often – including now – and you get an extra 10% off at checkout}. Once I get the gist of what’s on all those cards, I can make my own to keep it going – or adapt some Project Life cards I already have.

I’m still thinking about this class. It’s being discussed on the message boards and all the reviews from past attendees have been positive. It starts in 2 days (on 01-01-14) so I need to make up my mind and SOON!

Have you taken “Move More, Eat Well” with Cathy Z in the past – or are you thinking about taking it now? Would love to hear your thoughts in Comments below!

Online Scrapbook Classes: Grab Some “True Scrap 5″ a la Carte Classes Before the Price Goes Up!

One last reminder that “True Scrap 5″ is for sale now as separate classes. You can find all the details in a blog entry HERE or go straight to the TS5 website HERE where you can see all of the class descriptions.

If you get them by Christmas 12-25-13, they are only $9.99. After that, the price increases to $12.95.

I didn’t get around to posting reviews this time but my 2 favorite classes were:

“Pick a Card, Any Card” by Layle Koncar

She showed lots of ways – other than just pocket page scrapbooking – to use all those 3×4 and 4×6 cards we’ve collected. Layle works for “Simple Stories” so she knows what she’s talkin’ ’bout. Plus, she’s fun and funny. I really enjoyed her class, the first I’ve taken from her.

“Design Your Story with Bits and Pieces” by Noell Hyman

She showed a great technique for using all those little bits and pieces we collect and making them look great on your layouts. I will definitely be using this technique again and again.

If you love Layle’s class or just pocket page scrapbooking in general {it’s about 90% of the scrapping I do these days}, make sure to check out “True Scrap Pocket Pages” coming 01-25-14! Save $50 if you sign up by 12-31-13. I will SO be there ;)

Merry Christmas Eve, my scrappy friends!

Last Chance to Sign Up for LOAD 513 … Layout a Day for May 2013

After attending my first LOAD event in February 2013 – see my post HERE – I’m a true believer. It’s the BEST online scrapbooking event I’ve ever attended. Well, okay, it’s tied for 1st place with TRUE SCRAP :P

I wasn’t able to keep up with blogging about LOAD 213 (Feb ’13) but I did get tons of layouts done that month. They are some of my favorite layouts I’ve ever done. I think it’s a combination of the prompts received from Lain and the supportive community who makes you feel like your ideas are valid and appreciated.

The gallery is EXTREMELY active so even if you’re like me and not able to physically do a layout every day, you can at least collapse on the couch at the end of every day and marvel at the layouts posted by other LOADers. Inspiration station, baby! And the message board was LOADs of fun, too (har har).

It’s time for LOAD again in May 2013 – so this one is called LOAD 513.

It runs during the entire month of May and here is what you get if you join:

31 days of brand-new video prompts and lessons, guaranteed to bust you out of any scrapbooking rut, bring a smile to your face, and make your hair shine!

Exclusive message board for LOAD members only where you can connect and chat with the coolest scrappers on the Web!

Private gallery for our members where you share your daily creations, win prizes, and strut your stuff!

31 never-before-seen sample layouts!

Random surPRIZES, Hugh* sightings, and fun for all!

*Lain may or may not have a serious thang for Hugh Jackman … See why?

Here is where to sign up for LOAD 513! Look at the bottom of this blog entry for a code you can enter to get $10 off the registration fee ;)

Participation is capped for all LOADs and there are only 50 spots left for this one – it’s a very popular event. The most awesome thing is that I have a special deal for you: $10 off the $50 price. Do the math: That’s only $1.29 a day for all the goodness listed above.

And after 31 days, how would it feel to have 31 layouts?!?!? I mean, that’s an entire album. A satisfying stack. A titling tower of layouts!

I’m a ScrapHappy.org member so I get all LOADs for free – I will be there! If I were you, I’d just go sign up for LOAD 513 right now. Because if you don’t, the end of April and them May 1st is going to be here, everyone will be talking about LOAD, you’ll get really jazzed about joining in … and it will be full.

Every LOAD has a theme. For the February session, it was ScrapHappy. This time it’s “Get a Clue! Investigating the Mysteries of Your Life.” Sounds like fun. I can’t wait to get started!

Speaking of which, there is no special prep you have to do for LOAD – no specific products to buy or pre-work to do. It would help to start May 1 with a clean desk and join the message board and gallery as soon as you sign up for LOAD. The message board actually gets hopping before the event starts. But that’s it! So if you need to make a big dent in your stash, LOAD is perfect for you. {Or if you need an excuse to scrapbook shop, we’ll encourage you there as well … bwahahahaha!}

Click here to sign up for LOAD 513!

True Scrap 4 Class Review: “The Art of Layering” by Nichol Magouirk

As I posted HERE, I’m very excited that “TRUE SCRAP 4″ individual classes are finally on sale.

I was especially excited (but somewhat apprehensive, honestly) to take this class: “THE ART OF LAYERING” by Nichol Magouirk (scroll down til you find it). I’m a pretty simple scrapper and layering? Yeah, not a talent I naturally posses. When I’ve tried to do layering before, my layout ends up looking like a red hot mess.

I’ve never taken a class by Nichol but I’ve always heard great things about her classes offered at Two Peas. I figured if anyone could teach me layering, Nichol could, LOL! So here is what’s included in the class, along with my random thoughts about it:

– A 38-minute video, which is on the longer side for a True Scrap class.

– Beautiful, long, and detailed handout with color photos, instructions, and supply lists.

– Great techniques Nichol uses to make her amazing layered layouts.

– I learned a great new way to computer journal on stickers (super happy about that one), a cool new way to use border stickers, and about the art of “tucking.”

– She made me want to buy a TINY ATTACHER by Tim Holtz.

– Nichol uses a lot of the embellishments I already have, adding them on to the page in ways I wouldn’t think of on my own – but I’ll be coming back to this video again and again to remind myself how to use what I have.

– As a bonus – because it’s a video – I finally learned how to properly say “Magouirk” . . . hee hee.

I have to say that one technique/layout was a bit too much for me. One attendee in Chat called it Extreme Diecutting. But if you’re into Silhouette, shadows, etc., you will LOVE it.

You know how scrapbook classes are so different, and different things appeal to different scrappers? This is not a class I would normally have taken. I’m a simple scrapper for a reason {well, other than the fact that I have as much design talent in my whole body as people like Nichol have in the tip of her pinky finger} . . . it’s because FOR ME it’s about the photos and journaling.

For others, it’s about making each page a work of art that stretches your talents and gives you a massive creative outlet. I’ll be honest and say that this class would be more geared toward the latter, if you intend to copy Nichol’s layouts or style very closely.

That said, I think it’s worth taking even for simple scrappers like me. I can take her overall concepts and pieces of her ideas to improve my own layouts, relax a little, and have more fun. Oh, and use product! ‘Cuz I’m a scrapbook product hoarder and lawdy knows I need to use up some product (so I can . . . . erm . . . shop some more).

I have mad respect for people who can scrapbook with layers and make layouts that are so gorgeous, I would want to frame them. It’s like a scrapbook isn’t good enough :) So overall, I do recommend you take Nichol’s class, “The Art of Layering.” She is an amazingly talented gal and now I see what all the fuss was about.

As much as I love Nichol now, and her amazing scrapbooking advice and techniques, even she is not going to get me machine stitching on my pages . . . not even with the cutest teal-colored Hello Kitty sewing machine ever! {There is a link to where you can buy one for yourself}.

Gosh, I look back at her layouts on the class handout and I’m just amazed at her talent. What an inspiring scrapbooker! Color me a Nichol Magouirk fan from now on :)

So if I’ve convinced you to take Nichol’s class, you can buy “TRUE SCRAP 4″ individual classes here.

If you have taken or do take Nichol’s class,please leave a comment and let me know what YOU thought about it! I’m sure readers would love all perspectives as they decide whether or not to take this class.

Don’t forget: Buy True Scrap 4 individual classes by 12/25/12 and save $3 per class {$9.95 instead of $12.95}.

Scrapbook Online Class: “The Perfect Collection” by Shimelle Laine – A Review

Sorry, I seem to have this class on the brain but, well, I have this class on my brain! And I posted on the Two Peas Message Board that I would write a review of “The Perfect Collection” by Shimelle Laine. … so here I am. I know many scrappers out there are contemplating taking the class but want to hear more about it before committing.

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, here is my post about TRUE SCRAP 3 CLASSES becoming available individually. And here is where I contemplate taking SHIMELLE LAINE’s CLASS, “The Perfect Collection”, with some details about it.

K, great. Now you’re all caught up!

I did sign up for the class this past weekend and was able to watch the video over a few sittings when I had time on Sunday {just love that about video classes ‘cuz I am a bizzy woman!}. The video is over 40 minutes long which I think is a great value for the mere $9.99 that the class costs. Included in the price, you also get a printable .pdf (or save it to your computer) that gives paper cutting diagrams and photos of all the layouts Shimelle created for this project.

This is my first {but I’m sure not last} class I’ve taken by Shimelle and I really enjoyed her. She has a very polished but casual presentation style. There are few “uhms” and “uhs” like some other instructors do. {Being in Britain, I do love how she says “ehm” instead of “uhm” anyway}. She wasn’t distracted, you could hear everything perfectly, and the video quality was great.

As for the information presented in the class itself, I found it super useful. She walks you through how to the get the most from your collection kits, using as much of the papers as possible and hopefully leaving just a few scraps when you’re all done. For “Collection Pack Queen” over here, I was loving it. I do tend to scrap by manufacturer because I like how everything coordinates and saves time. I also have many a collection kit. So this class was definitely made for me!

The layouts she assembles in the video are 12×12, both 1-pagers and 2-pagers. She completes 16 total pages, basically an album of 1 event in her life. However, you can also do them as individual layouts. It’s very flexible and easy to use no matter what you want to use the layouts for. It’s also flexible as to the size of layouts. I can see how this technique would be easily adapted for use with 8 1/2 x 11 and 8×8 layouts.

Not only does she tell you how to get tons of layouts without leaving much of your collection pack behind, she also shares techniques and principles from her scrapbooking style. She explains why she lays the pages out the way she does along with some inking, embellishment arrangement, “white space,” etc. I found this to be a nice surprise!

Once you’ve seen the video and downloaded the cheat sheet with cutting diagrams and sketches, you won’t be able to contain yourself! You’ll want to grab a collection pack, monthly kit, or handful of coordinating papers and get to work creating a stack of layouts. She makes it all very easy and accessible. Unlike some classes which show you how to complete one specific project, this is something I will use over and over and over again. For that alone, it was cost effective.

Another selling point: All True Scrap 3 classes once purchased are available for your viewing forever and always. Once your kids have grown and left you, your dog has died, and you’re living in the home with a roommate you can’t stand, you’ll STILL be able to watch eternally-youthful Shimelle showing you how to use up those collection kits … that you will still be working your way through when you’re 93, I promise.

I don’t want to give away any more about the class. Suffice it to say, I give this class a huge YES. As in, “Should I take this class?” YES!

Are you ready to sign up for Shimelle’s class? {C’mon, you know you want to …}. Or do you want to learn about all the other amazing True Scrap 3 classes? Just click here to view more details. You’ll have access to the class almost immediately. I think when I ordered it, it took a whole 3 minutes to arrive. I was like, “Jeez! Are they standing there with their finger on the button or what?” {I know, I know, it’s some automatic computer thing but let me be impressed anyway, mmm kay?}.

Don’t forget that you need to sign up ASAP. The price for True Scrap 3 classes is only $9.99 — for a limited time. On 7/7 the price will increase to $12.95 per class. Which is still a great price for what you get … but who wants to spend $3 extra? That’s money that can be spent on a package of bling or some scrappy paper, for gosh sakes. Get your priorities straight, gurl!

Would love to hear your reviews of this or any other True Scrap 3 classes!
