Sponsored Giveaways | Big Picture Classes, Totally Rad

GIVEAWAY | Two (2) people will win a spot in Clean and Simple: The Workshop taught by Cathy Zielske

ABOUT | In Clean & Simple: The Workshop, you’ll learn to design and create scrapbook pages the Cathy Zielske way—clean, simple, timeless, story-rich, and full of heart.

Say goodbye to your rulers and hello to a solution that allows you to use Photoshop Elements (or Photoshop) to build scrapbook pages in the digital method, which you’ll print and piece together—using additional supplies from your stash—to create beautiful hybrid layouts. Digital sketching has been the core of Cathy’s approach since her very first layout, and it’s a key part of the Clean & Simple process. You’ll learn how to use Photoshop Elements to plan and design pages, just like Cathy does.

Each week you’ll receive a template assignment designed by Cathy-some 12″ x 12″, some 8 1/2″ x 11″, as well as receiving all of the custom-designed PNG files needed to complete the page. Along the way, you’ll receive thoughtful layout ideas, tips to improve your writing, some of Cathy’s trademark type tricks, and page design secrets. You’ll also get the best of Cathy’s graphic design knowledge as she outlines why each assignment works.

This 12 week workshop will run from  4/4/2013-6/26/2013 and is $99. Read the full description here.

    Oh? Am I the first person to comment? Anyway, thanks a lot Ali for these 2 awesome giveaways!!! I tried RadLab during 14 days, and I totally loved it! I was thinking of buying it! As for BPC, I’m participating in Tracey’s class (so great!) and I will participate in your class this summer for sure. I regret that I didn’t take the complete package with the 4-Experts classes at the beginning of the year. If I don’t win, I will probably buy Cathy’s class. Have a lovely week-end.

    I signed up for Cathy’s class last month with my paperclipping roundtable discount. I LOVE her style! And RadLab has been on my list but not something I have set the money aside for just yet (4 kids have many needs;)
    I would love to win either, thanks Ali!
