Woohoo! Finally! Now we can pick and choose among the TS 4 classes. I've commented on the classes on my blog today.

ETA: Remember, this is the last day to get $3 off each class!

Love your post, Margreta! Great comprehensive look at what classes are available and what they're about.

I just posted a review of the first class I took and will be continuing to post reviews in the coming week or two on my blog.

I'm loving all the classes so far!

It really is a great way to get the classes you're most interested in. Be sure to check them out. Currently they are on sale for this week ONLY so the savings are even greater! (More details on my blog as well.)

Do you girls have links to your blogs somewhere?

I really want to purchase, but only have budget for two or three.
Any recommendations are appreciated...

I am practical, still creative, but not artsy....I like meaty classes with content and not the stuff where you look at magazine photos to inspire you or journal about your Grandmas jewelry box (I get it though, no offense). Jennifer's online card classes are my fav on the web for being inspiring, so that type of thing. Don't philosophize too much, just get crafty. And digital is over my head, plus I like touching my stuff, lol.

So I was thinking stretch your sketch, and then I was wondering about Nichol Magourik, Noel Hyman and Kelli Crowe (unless it is too esoteric).

Thank you.

Usually, you'll find blog links in the signatures but maybe you got those turned off?

Anyway, here's the link to my blog if you'd like to visit.

As for the classes, it's always hard to make a recommendation since people's interests and likings are so diverse. That said, Nichol is always very hands on. Definitely no fluff in her class. She's a favorite!

Here's my blog: Scrapbook Obsession Blog

So far, I've posted entries about True Scrap classes in general, and a review of Gretchen Schmidt's class, "Stretch Your Sketch." I'll be posting reviews of all the other classes soon.

First up: "The Art of Layering" by Nichol Magouirk

I have been posting about these classes on my blog as well! They are all fabulous but it is a great way to try out classes and see which ones really interest you or are specific to where you would like to learn and grow more in your craft. You really can't go wrong

Does anyone have a review on: TRY HYBRID: GO-TO DIGITAL TECHNIQUES FOR PAPER SCRAPBOOKERS WITH JENNIFER WILSON class?

I have signed up for a few other ones but this one interested me as well. Thanks!

Carolyn, I just took that class and will post a review on my blog soon. But briefly I would say it's very beginner level (which was perfect for ME!). If you are an experienced digi scrapper, I don't know that you would learn anything new. Great class tho - I learned new things I was afraid to try but she walks you through AND provides a step-by-step worksheet.

Sorry, I had promised to post a bunch of class reviews, hoping to do so before the 12/25 deadline for $9.95 a class (they go up to $12.95 each on 12/26).

I posted an explanation on my blog

Anyhow, I'm going to start posting reviews again ... but there are still about 3 hours tonight until the special price expires.

I bit the bullet and bought 2 last night - an extra Christmas present to me!

i got the Nichol Magourik one and the Noel Hyman one. I'm really excited - I haven't taken classes from either before! Something to jump-start my post-holiday mojo!

I missed this when the sale was on, but seriously $12.95, isn't going to break my scrapping budget. However, having said that, I took a class a few months ago that promised to be amazing and I was seriously disappointed in it. I didn't find that I learned a single new thing and in the end I felt that I wasted $25. So now I wanted to see what people think of Nichol Magourik's Art of Layering class (and I did read the review posted above). For those of you who are more detailed scrappers (because I'd consider myself to be in that category), I'm wondering if you really learned much in this class. Nichol is so detailed in her Youtube videos and even if you follow her blog she really sets out a lot of information that has made me wonder if I should take this class. I love her style but am curious as to whether or not this class actually offers tips that I wouldn't know...

I definitely got a lot out of the Art of Layering class. I now layer on almost every page where as before I was intimidated by layering. I felt it was informative and full of information.

Honestly, I didn't find that this class had a lot of new information. I have gained as much info from watching her videos here and mercytiara's videos on YouTube.
