Back by INCREDIBLY POPULAR DEMAND, Heidi Swapp and Jessica Sprague have teamed up again to bring you an incredible class-with-a-kit for the second time in 2011. In this TWO WEEK (actually 2 1/2 weeks!) instructor-led class, we'll dive in to incredible projects spanning everything from an amazing giftable calendar to a gorgeous inch-deep shadowbox you can personalize for your recipient (who just MAY be YOU - we won't tell!). With ideas you can reproduce and personalize (with the magic of Photoshop!) in countless ways, this class is sure to get your gift-giving fire going! You'll love a set of quick-and-easy projects with the 'wow' factor you crave, plus FIVE in-depth projects complete with both video instruction from Jessica to create the project in Photoshop, and video instruction from Heidi on how to assemble and finish each project with the contents of the kit we're shipping to your house!

How You'll Learn

Heidi Swapp (here is her blog) is one of the best in the world at what she does - make magic with printer, paper and embellishments. And I'm here (that's me, Jessica!) to start each of the class projects with solid Photoshop instruction including typography, photo editing, pattern-making, and MORE. With your printed pieces and the KIT components in hand, Heidi will guide you step-by-step through streaming video how to assemble and embellish each project using the latest crafting techniques, PLUS she'll show you variations on each project, for dozens of great ideas!

We'll create FIVE major projects you can then reproduce as gifts, including:

  • An incredible frame for your wall, with customizable quotes in a scrollwork shadowbox that will take your breath away (see part of it in the preview up there? ok. keep breathing.)
  • So-cute, so-handy, so-giftable glass magnets in an adorable tin
  • A subway-style frameable poster you can customize with addresses, quotes, or special words
  • Bookmarks bookmarks bookmarks (you are going to love these bookmarks)
  • A keepsake calendar-in-a-box complete with photo collages

But these are no ordinary projects. Designed by Jessica and Heidi, we combine the BEST of design and crafting with easy and amazing Photoshop techniques to take your skills (and your projects!) to the next level.

Best of all, we'll ship the paper, decor & embellishment kit directly to your house before class begins! (over $55 value). The kit contains

It's All About GIVING

The class has an overall theme of "Giving" - which can be expressed lots of ways! We include "doubles" of some of the kit items for automatic giveability, but you'll also want to consider (and you will definitely consider!) gifting a few of these projects to your fabulous, one-of-a-kind self! Regardless of whether you keep the projects themselves, or make duplicates and give, you'll be GIVING YOURSELF skills and knowledge in your crafting and Photoshop arsenal that you can use for the rest of your life. Now THAT is a gift that keeps on giving!

We personally invite you to take the leap into mouse-and-paper crafting, and gather ideas for GIVING! Are you ready? Register now!
