True Scrap 6 in October - Special Discount!
Fall is in the air and October is just around the corner. October brings fall leaves, pumpkins and True Scrap 6 on October 17 and 18th. My friend Lain Ehmann, of Layout A Day, produces and hosts this live virtual paper crafting event where you can learn from some fabulous instructors from the comfort of your own home. There is no need to dress up or travel and you can chat with other participants live throughout the day. You log in to the virtual classroom from your computer and if you miss anything during the day you have full access to the recordings to replay at your convenience.
This is the fourth year for True Scrap and the format has been shortened from 2 days to 1 for this session. There will be 8 classes all on Saturday, the 18th, with a pre-event pajama party including short videos and virtual make-and-takes on Friday night (October 17th).
I have participated in several True Scrap events and they have been a lot of fun. The instructors prepare their class on video and everyone watches the video together with the option to chat. Then there is time to ask each instructor questions live and get answers about the class or other topics that come up.
Here are the details about the classes that are included - you can find more information about the event and register to attend HERE. Lain gave me a coupon code to share with you that will take $20 off the price making the classes less than $10 each, you'll find it at the end of this post, after the class descriptions.
