giveaway | learn something new every day with shimelle laine

Shimelle Laine announced today that it's time for another session of her popular "Learn Something New Every Day" class, and I'm so excited to be able to give away a seat to one lucky reader!

Shimelle is a stellar teacher, and every class I've taken from her has been absolutely top-notch and packed with inspiration. This particular class is really something special- just look at everything it includes!
Now it its sixth year, this online scrapbooking class encourages you to observe the world around you and learn from your daily experiences and surroundings. We work with a small format album to make thirty daily entries, and we adopt a few short cuts and techniques to make those daily entries possible in even the busiest of weeks. And once you’ve joined, you’re welcome to participate for as many years as you like at no extra cost.

The class includes:
…preparation notes delivered next week
…thirty daily full-colour pdf prompts delivered to your inbox
…printables for paper scrapbookers and a digital kit for digi scrappers
…technique tutorials and other crafty inspiration to keep you creative
…access to a private class forum at to chat and share your work
…permanent file archive so you can come back to the materials at any time

Plus new additions for 2011:
…revamped prompts with a fresh perspective
…a printable mini-book you can create in no time
…two live chat sessions – one to start the class and another to celebrate the end of September
…a few little surprises along the way, of course!
Each of the daily prompts includes full colour photos of pages from a range of albums so you can see a variety in styles, from simple scrapbook pages to looks that use more layers to art journals. There are also hundreds of additional samples to view in the members’ forum, so no matter what your creative style you can always find something right up your street.

All you have to do to enter to win a spot in this amazing class is to leave a comment on this post by midnight CST on August 27, 2011. I'll be using to choose a winner and will post the results on Sunday, August 28.

If you'd like to simply purchase access to the class, you can do that here at any time. At just $15 US it's an absolute steal!

Thanks to Shimelle for offering this giveaway, and good luck to everyone!
