Remember when we would take film into a store and wait a few days and see what developed. Depending on your age you might not have any idea what I am talking about, if so be happy and enjoy your youth! For the rest of us, including me, do you remember the joy of opening that envelope and seeing how those pictures turned out? It’s funny how much we do digitally that we take for granted, we take photos digitally, we print them out at home, and maybe even send e-cards to friends and family. (It’s ok … I won’t tell anyone.)
But there is still joy in breaking out the scissors and touching the textured paper. I still get excited when I hold prints in my hands, even though I’ve seen them hundreds of times before on the screen. There’s just something about real versus virtual that is well “real, tangible, touchable and slightly exotic.” If you consider yourself a traditional scrapbooker chances are you cross over into the digital world more than you realize and if you are a digital scrapbooker I’m just guessing you print things out from time to time.
May Flaum is teaching Adventures in Scrapbooking: Go Hybrid starting February 25th. This class is for you! Whatever your comfort level scrapbooking in the digital world, May will show you tips and techniques to fully use the digital tools you have to make your scrapbooking experience more creative, colorful and fun!
We are happy to have a special giveaway for this class. One lucky student will win a Wacom Bamboo Craft tablet. Creative types have used these tablets for years. The Bamboo Craft uses both a pen and Multi-Touch input to navigate and work on your scrapbooking projects. The pressure sensitive pen lets you create your own art, edit photos, and use your own handwriting.
So, I know you’re ready to sign up but… you’re waiting for the challenge. Yes, we are giving away one seat in May’s Adventures in Scrapbooking: Go Hybrid. For your chance to win the free seat please tell us how you use technology in your scrapbooking (taking BPS classes counts) and what you’d most like to learn from May’s workshop. The winner will be announced this Wednesday February 17th, in the introduction of May’s guest blog.
