One year ago, the phenomenal Tiffany Tillman launched Scrapaneers.com – a welcoming and educational site filled with classes geared specifically towards digital scrapbookers and digital scrapbook designers. Most recently, she welcomed Yours Truly as a resident instructor of Adobe Illustrator. My first class, Pocket Pop, was released earlier this summer and it has been amazing to see what students have created and said about their newly acquired skills.
Thank you Danielle for your great teaching techniques! I have learned so much in a very short time! I never used illustrator before and feel so comfortable using it now!
I have just completed all the lessons and am very happy with how they were presented. The teaching was great and very clear. You have now made me feel able to take Illustrator seriously. I am really not into Pocket scrapping, I normally just scrap layouts for my family and love learning how to create new items to include on the layouts. Thanks for wetting my appetite I am now so ready to move forward with Illustrator!
I just wanted to give you a HUGE shout out as to how GREAT this class is! Even though I am formally trained in Illustrator, I have always used Photoshop as my go-to software to create filler cards for my kits. The way you set up your files/artboards have already proven to be a BIG time-saver for me! Illustrator is now my number one choice when it comes to creating papers, cards, etc. You’re a great instructor!
Who doesn’t love feeling empowered by a new technique, new program, new KNOWLEDGE?! If you’ve been waiting to take this class, strike now! The iron is hot, my friends. August 4 – 11th, we’re celebrating with 20 – 25% off all self-paced classes. That includes Pocket Pop!
Already taken Pocket Pop, and can’t wait for more? Never fear, Pocket Pop 2 is in development!
With the birthday celebration, Scrapaneers is introducing a whole new, brilliant videocast concept called The Digital Coffee Break. I am SO excited about this one…
You’re in a coffee bar taking a much needed break and you run into your favorite digital crafter — the one with designs that always inspire you. You both sit down, she whips out her laptop, and gives you the ultimate tour into her creative, digital brain as you sip your favorite drink.
She shares her digital secrets AND gives you a glimpse into her world, how she gets things done, and still has time to appreciate life around her.
That’d be one heck of a coffee break!
We Invite You to Take a Coffee Break With Us!
The Digital Coffee Break is a new videocast (think podcast + video) that invites you to the coffee bar with your favorite digital creatives. Yes, we geek out and discuss digital scrapbooking but we also share big and small techniques, dive inside layered layouts, photos, projects, and more right inside the software during the show.
We’ll play in Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, Storybook Creator and more. And you can watch it all on your schedule! Woot!!!
