    OHMYGOSH what an opportunity. I would love a chance to learn more advanced techniques. I just started digiscrapping last year and love it, but feel like my work is inferior to what I see out there in digiland. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • I would love to learn anything and everything. I am just kind of teaching myself with the help on a lot of online helps. So some basics and fun tricks would be wonderful.

  • downtheroad says:

    Yes! I have a lot of pictures online and it is such a hassle to have them printed and crop them. I used to think I knew how to operate Photoshop but it is too overwhelming. I still would love to try. Thanks!

  • Grrr! I just wrote a looong comment about how much I need this! I just started digiscrapping and am halfway through my trial of PSE9. I can't figure out simple things like how to put a picture into a frame in a template. I also can't find a tutorial anywhere on how to make a style. I have a good grasp on the program bc I used it a lot 13 years ago in highschool. Soooo yes please! I need these classes and would love to win!!! Thanks for the chance!

  • Moodyjudy says:

  • Giseli Freitas says:

    Oh I would love to win this! Thanks for the chance. I've tried to switch from PSP to PS many MANY MAAAAAAAAANY times now and couldn't so far. I guess I'm too comfortable w/ scrappin' in PSP. I do know how to make some things on PS, but it takes me so much more time to do, to find the right tools. I guess if I just could improve my ways on PS… IDK.

  • A little bit of each. I'm starting with digitalscrapbooking, I try to learn by myself PS but I need more advanced tricks (maybe the simple one also) and refresh all I learned and haven't use all the times…
    Thank you for the chance, it's a cool giveaway.
    Wish you all a very blessed xmas time !

  • What a great giveaway. Thanks for the chance. I would love to improve my knowledge of PSE.

  • I'd LOVE to win this…I have adobe elements, but I'm stuck! what a give-away [hope it's me}

  • I would guess that I'm mostly a beginner – although I've been working on my 'fix that pic' skills. Now I just need to learn to do the rest! 😀

  • MJ-AJ Designs says:

    Awesome! Yes, I'd love to learn more. I've got PSE7 and there are so many tools that I'm NOT using!!

  • roxanamdm says:

    Great prize! I would love to learn more advanced tricks, I use CS5 and there are some tools I´ve never tried! Thanks for the opportunity!!!

  • I am always looking for ways to learn more! I am presently taking Linda's first class that started 2 weeks ago. She is a magnificent teacher. I pick up tips with things I already knew how to do and she always includes extras for those who are more advanced.

  • I want to be a digital scrapper so bad. We have adobe photoshop and I have made a few things by trial and error. I am excited to see what I can do when I actually know what I am doing.

  • I've made a few layouts using another program, but downloaded a trial version of PSE as some templates are exclusive to photoshop. I find it so much harder to use and like someone else mentioned, quite intimidating. Its catch 22 – cant justify buying the program (and they charge us $150) when I find it hard to use and cant afford a training program if Im not going to buy the software. Dilemmas, dilemmas. Thanks for the chance, it would help heaps!

  • I'd love to learn some more advanced tips! I could also use a kick start to my creativity.

  • I would love to have a refresher and to learn basic tips that I don't know!

  • I would love to learn more advanced tips and shortcuts to allow me to complete pages quicker. THanks!!

  • StampinGranny says:

    I would love to learn more advanced things even though I am an intermediate PSE user.

  • I would love to learn more advanced tricks! Wow what a great giveaway!

  • I've been digitally scrapping for a long time but have used another program until recently and am trying to learn photoshop elements 8. This would be a timely gift! You're awesome, Krista.

  • Okay, gonna test my luck here! Hope I win! I have been trying to learn PS on my own… maybe a formal class would help. 🙂

  • I love digital scrapbooking. I would love to learn some fun new tricks. Thanks for the chance to win!!

  • I can use all the help I can get!! I know the basics but need to learn the more advance things.

  • I would love to learn more advanced tricks along with a refresher along the way.

  • So~Inkin~Cute says:

    Okay, I must admit… I am a beginner. While although I have been in the digi-community for a LONG time, I have really only managed to spend a LOT of money on products I can't use! I have over 1 terabyte full of amazing products, but everytime I sit down and try to scrap a page, I am never pleased with the results!! I don't intend to be an elete scrapper or anything, I'd just like to know how to create a FULL page without the desire to rip my hair out! I have a few tutorials, and a book or two, but they all say the same thing and still provide no results. I have heard of these classes and I would just DIE if I won! Thank you so much for the chace!
