Scrapbook Coach: Criss Cross with a Coupon!

I'm really enjoying Debbie Hodge's series of Scrapbook Coach classes this summer. I recently did one of the lessons in her newest class, Criss Cross, which consisted of watching a video about 15 minutes long, and making my own page alongside the lesson.

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, here's a 3-minute peek at one of the videos. There are 4 videos and an accompanying PDF for each class.



I normally don't watch many videos to the end, but Debbie holds my attention because:





  • she explain not just what she's doing, but why
  • she encourages me to stop and think about choices
  • she focuses on one design task at a time, yet considers the whole
  • she challenges me to try things I normally would not think to do


  • Collection Featured: Simple Stories 24/Seven
    Here's the page I made based on Debbie's lesson. I think these video classes are especially great for summer scrapbooking. They are quick, easy, you get a layout done and go back to enjoying summer! I also love that I'm learning something in the process.

    You can purchase an individual class, or save money on a bundle. All classes come with a 30-day money-back guarantee, no questions asked. And from now through August 15th, I can offer you an additional 10% off the already discounted 6-class bundle, just because you are reading this post! Simply use the coupon code scraplifememories10 when you check out.

    2. What a great page. I really like the stitching around the edge. A subtle accent that is very effective. I bet you have a lot of fun doing weddings together.

    3. Your layout is great - I can just imagine you & Phil working together perfectly on those photo shoots! I've been watching lots of videos lately as I review class materials in some of my BPC classes - May Flaum did some great videos & kept my attention. Of course, I could watch Shimelle's videos all day & scrap along with her. This looks like a great class.
