it's small business saturday, and studio calico is doing something it's never done before. we're re-opening enrollment in a handful of classes for a limited time. TRENDSPOTTING, the class kelly noel and i taught last august, is one of them. here's a bit more about the class :
Are you a trendspotter? Lisa Truesdell and Kelly Noel want you to give it a try. They're here to teach you to jump on the latest trends and incorporate them into your projects without losing your own personal style. You'll learn how to use trends in varying amounts to combine what's now with what's YOU.
in this class, kelly and i covered 12 different trends - and i have to tell you, i was SCARED of some of them (especially neon!). the ideas we worked through pushed me to try new things, and i still love the 12 layouts and 6 cards that i made for this class. here's a peek at a few :
for a limited time, you can sign up for this class for $12. since there's 48 projects included in the class lessons, that breaks down to a crazy good deal. you can see a sample of a lesson and sign up for this class here.
TRENDSPOTTINGisn't the only class being offered - there are six more!
