You are awesome. Project Life® is awesome. I'll show you how to make (and finish!) your own digital Project Life® album with a few simple techniques in Photoshop.
Project Life® is more than a way of scrapbooking. It's an entire approach to memory keeping, even a way of looking at, photographing, savoring, and saving the bits and pieces of your life. Becky Higgins has developed a method that makes recording your weekly events EASY, so you can complete an entire gorgeous, detailed album in a year, every year. As a revolutionary new take on the traditional paper Project Life® approach, Becky has devised a series of templates and digital materials designed to create Project Life® pages in Photoshop. She's given me EXCLUSIVE permission to teach you how to use the Project Life® digital materials to create your own album for 2013. If you're a beginner to Photoshop, but want to learn how to create a Project Life® album in Photoshop that you can share online with friends and family AND print to put in an album, then I can't wait to see you in class!
This self-paced class is open for registration! You'll have access to all your course materials FOREVER. No need to be online at a specific time - complete the class at your own pace!
In this video-based course, you'll learn the basic Photoshop tools to create Project Life®
pages that integrate several of the materials of our craft: photographs

NOTE: This class covers the basics of Photoshop as it relates to Project Life® and using the digital materials. It is not a full course on the ins and outs of digital scrapbooking. If you are interested in pursuing your Photoshop journey after this course, I recommend enrolling in my Photo Editing 1 or Digital Scrapbooking 1 courses.
