Few pastimes now are as popular as scrapbooking. Now, scrapbooks go beyond just pasting photographs into blank binders; instead, elaborate pages, designs, and borders go into turning your photographs into a work of art.
If you would like to learn new scrapbooking techniques, you may want to take a class. Depending on the level, a scrapbooking class will teach everything from the very basics to more advanced techniques and designs. A class is also an excellent way to learn how to incorporate quotes. Learning new methods, techniques, and mediums from teachers as well as classmates can give you new insight and ideas and allow you to freshen up your scrapbook pages with quotes.
If you would like to take a class but are not sure where to find one, the following are all places you can go to take a scrapbook class:
Hobby and craft stores are excellent resources for affordable scrapbooking classes. These classes typically last several hours, and usually come in a variety of levels. In several hours, which is how long most classes are, you can expect to learn not only quotes but some of the basics of scrapbooking, like papers, borders, die cuts, and so forth, or you can learn more advanced scrapbooking techniques, like embossing, paper coloring and more.
These classes are usually inexpensive, and will provide the materials needed to make a page for you to take home with you. Contact craft stores in your area, like Michael’s or Jo-Ann Fabrics, to see if they offer any type of scrapbooking class.
Community colleges / civic centers
Often times, local colleges and civic centers will have classes that cover a wide variety of topics. As scrapbooking has become so widely popular, many of them also have scrapbook classes. These classes are often more in-depth than those provided in a craft store and typically meet once or twice a week for several weeks. Some materials may be provided, but sometimes you will have to bring your own, or you may want to bring your own.
If you have scrapbook clubs in your area, these are a greatâ€”and often freeâ€”resource for scrapbooking tools and techniques to learn from other scrap book enthusiasts. These clubs meet frequently and allow you to learn from your peers design ideas and other tips and tools of the trade.
If you don’t have a community center or craft store nearby, there’s no need to worry. You can get scrapbook classes online at an inexpensive price. Websites such as www.scraptutor.com provide classes online at about $1 a class. These are a convenient alternative to scrapbooking classes, since you can learn from the comfort of your own home and at your own pace. Most online scrapbook classes feature such things as video scrapbook lessons you can watch on your computer.
Online classes are also nice because you can pick and choose the topic you’d like to learn, instead of sitting through a class in which you are only interested in a subject or two that is covered.
Scrapbooking is a fun hobby for all ages and can turn a boring photo album into a work of art to be cherished for years to come. Incorporating quotes into your Scrapbooking classes will help you to learn how to scrapbook while learning important things like papers to use and how to make your scrapbook last. Local craft stores, the Internet, clubs, and community colleges are all good places to find scrapbook classes.
