Mini Challenge: Back to School!

Our first mini-challenge is going to be a fun one!  I am one of those geeks who LOVED school!  I would be a professional student if I could.  That also translates itself into my crafting!  I enjoy taking classes both in a LSS and online to learn new techniques and challenge myself. 

Going back to college can be pricey, but taking scrapbook classes is not at all!  There are so many great on-line classes you can take for little or no money at all!  We are going to focus this challenge on the free ones!


Mini Challenge: Class options for this challenge are free classes offered right now by 2 Peas:
Scrapbook Stamping with Nicole Magouirk


Products You Love Every Which Way with Shannon Tidwell


For this challenge:  Choose one of these classes and watch the video or look at the downloadable PDF handout.  Then use your kit to participate in the challenge!  Yep.  It is that easy!  And the best part is if you upload your project to 2 Peas and mark which challenge it is for, you will be entered to win a 2 Peas gift certificate!  Don't forget to go to the bottom of this post and add a link to your creation so we can all be inspired!

Here are some more free or inexpensive classes that you might like to know about!
Stash to Treasure
Big Picture Classes
Jessicasprague Digital Classes (some free)
Debbie Hodge Classes
My Creative Classroom
2 Peas Classes (Pay)
2 Peas Classes (Free)
Shimelle (Archived/Self Paced Class)

If you know of any other on-line classes, please post a link in the comments section and I will add them to our list!

  3. Hi all! I know the names are not showing up above the Mister Linky box/logo...once you click on the box, it will open a new window to view the names and links to everyone's layouts. It is because we accidently choose a different "version" of Mister Linky...next time we'll allow for the names to show again on the blog right above the Mister Linky logo...sorry about that :)

  4. Sorry. Never used a Mr. Linky before. I was confused, but I've added it now.
