Welcome! In celebration of March being National Craft Month, I’m giving away a free seat in my online class with Craftsy called Inventive Ink: Colorful Mixed Media Effects. In this class I share loads of tips and techniques using Distress Inks, Distress Stains, Dylusions Ink Sprays, and more while working in art journals, on tags, and on scrapbook layouts. Leave a comment on this blog post between now and March 14 for a chance to win. A winner will be announced March 14. If you have already taken the class (thank you) and your name is pulled, you may ‘gift’ the class to a friend or family member.
Are you familiar with Craftsy? It’s a fabulous online education platform. They offer money-back guarantees on all classes, and they offer classes in stamping, painting, drawing, cooking, cake decorating, knitting, photography and more. In fact, they just released their 1,000th class! Learn new skills and ask questions of instructors in the online forum. It’s a wonderful set-up. My class is broken into seven video segments so it’s easy to watch in stages or all at once. You can place an electronic bookmark anywhere in the videos that you want to revisit, and you can even slow down or fast forward the speed of the lessons.
Please click the image below to see a 2-minute preview of my class:
The class has lifetime access and you can watch it as many times as you like, whenever and wherever you like. I check in several times each week and I’m happy to answer any questions posted in the forum. I also love seeing students post their work in the Forum and enjoy sharing it on Pinterest (see Student Work on Pinterest.)
Now let me fill you on something Craftsy is doing for National Crafting Month. Anyone who purchases a class through an instructor link (like those in blue below) from March 1-13 will be entered to win a $1,000 donation to a craft-focused charity of your choice! And depending on the number of instructors who participate, the amount may be doubled! Think of the good this could do for so many people. I’m excited and hope you are, too. What a great time to treat yourself to a class and possibly have the ability to treat a group in your community as well.
With that in mind, may I suggest these 4 classes that may appeal to readers of my blog:
Lovely Layered Cards with Shari Carroll = Shari is very well known in the paper crafts world for her artistic talent and relaxed teaching style. This class is a great way to start using mixed media materials in your paper projects.
Radiant Stamping Techniques with Mayuri P.. = Mayuri’s voice is so soothing and her class looks amazing! Lots of great techniques and tips on using the stamps you may already have in your stash.
Wild Cards: 21 Techniques with Favorite Supplies with Catherine Pooler = Catherine Pooler is the founder of Stamp Nation and she’s packed this class with wonderful ways to use what you have to create beautiful projects.
40 Techniques Every Stamper Should Know with Carrie Avery = Carrie covers loads of techniques in this class. A great starting place for beginners and a refresher for those who’ve been stamping for years.
HEADS UP: You may want to pop over to my March 3rd blog post because I am giving away a second seat in class and linking to three other instructors who are ALSO giving away free seats!
