summer templates workshop

Summer Templates is now open for registration! Summer Templates will teach you how to create more intuitive, personalized, eye-catching scrapbook layouts using templates as the foundation. I'll show you how to craft digital templates from a pre-existing design or from scratch. And you'll discover ways to deconstruct the templates you love and create fantastic new looks.
Yup, you'll fall in love with templates all over again!

Class supplies include 25 brand-new, fresh, fun, cool, and funky templates in my favorite graphic, trendy, and artistic styles. Plus each student also receives a coordinating summer mega-kit created by Paislee Press & Taylormade Designs, and mini kits by One Little Bird, and Karla Dudley Designs.

Want more details? Visit my blog for sneak peeks, more templates and layout inspiration and a FAQ for the workshop. Don't forget to visit the Summer Templates registration page to sign up and get that $10.00 discount before May 4th!

Oh My, I am so excited about this workshop, and can't wait til May 3rd (that's payday lol)
