The Studio Calico Classroom

May and June are going to be super busy months in the Studio Calico Classroom. I'm not sure if it's the first time ever, but I feel like it might be, Studio Calico are going to be running about 5 or so classes all at the same time. Pretty exciting if you love online classes taught by SC experts hey?! Let me tell you about a few of them.

Firstly, there's the Digital Basics Class, and one of the best things about this class is that it's FREE!!! Catherine Davis is going to teach everything you've ever wanted to know about how to use the digital products Studio Calico release each month such as the Printables, Digital Stamps, Templates and Cutting Files. As well as take you through some basics like how to organise your digital collection, how to trace files in Silhouette and a thousand other things. If you've never opened Photoshop and wouldn't know where to start.... this is your answer!! Like all these classes, you'll be given plenty of digital freebies along the way to test out your new skills too. 

But if you're a little more proficient in digital scrapping then you'll likely be really excited to hear that (finally!) Shanna Noel is going to be leading a class called Digital: Beyond the Basics. There'll be 10 videos and 10 PDF's to lead you through a whole range of exciting digital techniques. I'm super SUPER excited about this one.... 'cos if there's anyone whom I want to learn digital skills from, it's Shanna!

But if you're more of a touchy feely textural scrapper keen to learn a new trendy technique then you might want to check out Letterpress 2.0 being taught by Geralyn Sy. This is a mini-class (my words!) which is great for those a little short on time, and will take you through some fun techniques on how to use Letterpress.

Of course, if you were deducing that it's called Letterpress 2.0 because there was once a Letterpress 1.0 then you would be correct! Last year Tina Aszmus taught a more extensive class which will also cover all the basics of Letterpress, and you have the opportunity to enroll in both classes at the same time in the Letterpress Bundle option.

And lastly there's the Mini Book classes! Maggie Holmes is currently taking us through the creation of her layered and colourful eclectic album which uses the Excalibur Add On Kit from this months Camelot kits. But you can feel free to use whatever supplies you've got on hand. This class has already started, but is still taking enrollments until the end of the month, so you've still got plenty of time to sign up and get caught up!

You also have the option with the Mini Book classes to purchase the bundle of all four of them at once (for a discount), which is available here in the Mini Book Library.

Phew! Well that should be enough to keep you busy for the next couple of months shouldn't it?! But before I go, I just want to also draw your attention to a special subscription offer that's happening at the moment too. Until the end of the month, Studio Calico will let you sign up for a new subscription at no risk. Meaning, try it out for one month and if you want to cancel then you won't be hit with any extra fees! Great idea if you're sitting on the fence about signing up! I'm pretty tempted to do this myself and add a Project Life subscription to my cart. Subscription details are here.
