Digi Scrap from Scratch
Using technology, art, and design to create digital layouts in Photoshop Elements

Many different skills must come together before you can build a digital scrapbook layout. The first is a working knowledge of the most common software digital scrapbookers use. In Digi Scrap from Scratch, you'll not only learn the basics of how to use Photoshop Elements from Melissa Shanhun (of digitalscrapbookinghq.com), you'll also learn her top tips and tricks for creating digital layouts you'll love.

Through videos and downloadable handouts, Melissa will teach you to:

  • Shop for and unzip digital supplies
  • Understand file formats
  • Use the Photoshop Elements workspace
  • Understand the most-used Elements tools
  • Start a layout from scratch
  • Add supplies and embellishments to a layout in an eye-pleasing way
  • Add shadows to elements on your layout
  • Work with photos (black-and-white filters, adding frames, adjusting levels)

Beyond all the technical instruction, Melissa will share design principles that will take your layouts from "okay" to "wow"! Through a library of videos and written instruction, you'll learn how to create pages that you love—from scratch!—which you can share digitally, print, or include in a custom photo book.

*This class is great for beginner digital scrappers! Photoshop Elements is necessary. You can download a free version here.

Important information about Self-Paced Projects at Big Picture Classes!
Self-Paced Projects are instant download classes that allow you to participate at BPC anytime! These classes are different from our interactive workshops. There are no starting or ending dates -- you may enroll at any time. This flexibility also means, that there will not be the level of teacher and student interaction that we enjoy in our workshops. You will receive handouts to print and an audio file to listen to, but there are typically no message boards or chats.

Even though these classes offer less interaction, you are not alone! If you need help, email us at admin@bigpictureclasses.com. Enjoy!
