Learn the Art of Digital Design with Jessica Sprague | Giveaway

I have been recently introduced to a fabulous online learning site that I adore!! Many, many moons ago I was a scrapbooker. I hoarded paper and embellishment like they were life sustaining materials. I would pull out all of my supplies and my house would be over taken with buttons and brads, pens and chalk, stamps and ink… whatever the hot scrapbooking trend was at the time.  A few years later I discovered that you could digitally scrapbook and my life completely changed!! I loved that I could still create the same look with just a click of my mouse and a little digital creativity. I loved that my house no longer had to look like a craft store tornado and just come through every weekend.  The issue, there was a bit of a learning curve involved with figuring out this new digital medium.  I learned on Photoshop elements with the slow, trial by error method.  How happy I would have been if I would have had Jessica Sprague come to my rescue!!

What is JessicaSprague.com?

JessicaSprague.com is a fabulous online digital art classroom.  They teach classes in Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Adobe Illustrator and now they even have classes for the Silhouette!!!

 

Haven't you ALWAYS wanted to learn how to use these powerful tools? I know I have! Even though I feel pretty comfortable with some of these programs, I know that I don't use them to their full potential. This would be a great way to start from the beginning if you are new to the software or take some more advanced classes just to sharpen your skills. The classes are on your own time and self paced.  You can start and stop the video and practice the skill you've just learned so you know you've mastered it before you move on. Not only that, but if you have questions they have a fabulous forum that you can pop into and ask away, plus a fun gallery to share your work with others who have taken the class.

My Class Experience

I had the opportunity to take the Silhouette classes over the weekend and I LOVED them!! I was shocked that even in the very first lesson, an old Silhouette veteran like myself… LEARNED SOMETHING NEW!!

 

The class was so easy to follow with a very talented and knowledgeable instructor named Kerri Bradford…

Of Kerri Bradford Studio fame… She is one talented lady! She takes you step by step, on how to get to know your Silhouette. It doesn't matter if you have a CAMEO or an older version. She makes sure that everyone learns how to use their machine. The videos are clear and very well laid out, plus they are visually appealing {that's a big deal to me!}

Here is what Lesson One looks like and a brief overview of what you cover…

And a quick little snip of the beginning of the video… isn't it pretty?

The nice thing about these classes are that they are very affordable. The beginning class is $25 and the more advanced class is $30.  A steal really!  Think of all the wonderful things you can do with your Silhouette if you COULD JUST FIGURE OUT HOW!! I know I was in that boat… and YES, I'm a seasoned veteran.

    Would love to just learn how to use the whole machine better. Have had mine for a few years but still have trouble figuring out parts of what I am doing. I feel like every time I figure it out they change the software!

  2. Catherine a. says

    I’m new to the machine. I would love to learn how to make those really intricate cuts like words and frames for things like project life.

  3. says

    I would love how to make the little cute designs different colors. Do I have to cut all the pieces in out multiple colors of paper? Is there a way to fill in the design or only trace it using the sketch pens? I need help!
    Huge Fan!

    I am taking the advanced class now, but would love to take the beginning class!! Thanks for the chance!

  5. Kristine SCHNITTGEN says

    I love everything Jessica and her gang do. I haven’t been able to take the Silouette class yet so I would love to!!!

  6. Roberta says

    I’m currently learning Silhouette Studio the trial by error method. LOL! I would love to be able to really dig in and create knowing what each tools does without guessing.

  7. Melinda T says

    I have a silhouette and I don’t know how to properly use it! I would love to take the beginner’s class and learn how to do the basic stuff and work up from there and begin to make my own designs!

  8. says

    I would probably give it to my friend Cheryl for her upcoming birthday since she has a Silhouette and I don’t. Unless i win one soon!

  9. Krystal F says

    I have had my cameo for about six months, and though I love it, I know there is so much more that I could be doing if I just knew how to use it better.

  10. Paola says

    I would like to learn how to use all its functions. I just got my Cameo and can’t wait to start creating. Thanks for the shot at winning the class.

  11. says

    I feel lost with my Silhouette – I’m not sure all the things it can do so the very basics would be great and build from there.

  12. Terri Torrez says

    I really want to take both of these classes. I love my Silhouette but I know I’m not getting nearly as much out of it as I could be.

  13. Sarina says

    I have seen people build layouts, cards and projects with the software then cut out the various pieces. I would like to learn how to do that quickly and effeciently.
