I'm REALLY excited about my latest class at Get It Scrapped! I'm a huge fan of Shutterfly photo books ... there is nothing quite like ripping the packing material away from the postman's delivery and finding my layouts contained inside a professionally bound book. BUT, I remember the disappointment I experienced when I received my very first book with portions of the text cut off in the gutter and my carefully edited photos rendered in bright, garish colors.
At the time I didn't understand Shutterfly's size specifications or realize that I had to turn off Vivid Pics. Through no fault of Shutterfly, my album was less than what I had hoped for. Judging from the number of questions I see asked on a regular basis in the digi scrapping forums I participate in ... MANY scrappers are intimidated by the process of creating a photo book with their own layouts ... and there are LOTS of questions out there! My new class will walk you step by step through the entire process -- from creating and sizing your layouts to ordering your completed photo book.
AND (insert drum roll here) the gracious folks at Shutterfly have provided me with coupon codes for the participants! Sign up for the class and receive a FREE 8 x 8 hard cover photo book ... good until December 15th, 2009 ... while supplies last.
Here is some more detailed information about the class. I hope you'll consider joining me!
Would you like to make photo books 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, taught by Pattie Knox, takes you step-by-step through the process for installing the necessary software (a free trial copy of Photoshop Elements for PC and Mac), 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.
This class comes with more than lessons! It also includes 4 digital page kits from DesignerDigitals, 16 page templates by Pattie Knox, and one 8"x8" 20-page Shutterfly photobook (with a photo hard cover to be ordered by 12/15/09; shipping and handling not included).
Come on over check out out the many many details about what this class covers and includes and get ready to get not only "Shutterfly Savvy" but digi-scrapping savvy!
