I've gotten emails asking questions about the Soulology Project Online Scrapbooking Course so I thought I would answer them here.
*** Chris La Croix - if you're reading this, I've tried emailing you back through 3 different email addresses but it keeps getting bounced back. I hope you're reading this so you can get your questions answered. ***
QUESTION: Do you have any spaces left in the online course?
ANSWER: Yes! I do still have spaces, but there aren't many left and class starts on October 20th, so if you've been thinking about taking this course, NOW is the time to sign up! This course has limited amount of spaces available, so don't wait too long!
QUESTION: I'm a beginner scrapbooker. Is this a good course for a beginner to take?
ANSWER: Yes, this is something that a beginner could definitely handle. Especially with the layout sketch gallery that is put up each week of the sample layouts. I find that most people have trouble with the layout concept. The course is designed to get you to dig deep and think about your journaling and about scrapbooking about yourself, while the layout sketch gallery is designed to help you with the artistic concept. This course is two fold. It not only deals with the internal (probing deep to share your personal story) but the external, as well (the artistic part of putting your layout together).
QUESTION: Do I need to purchase special supplies to take this course?
ANSWER: You won't need any supplies other than the ones you're already using in your paper crafting. If you have cardstock, pictures, adhesive, markers, etc., you're already set. You can choose to stamp, use stickers, use pre-made embellishments....whatever you like. I wanted these online courses to be something that people didn't have to put a lot of money out on, which is why I really don't give a supply list. People can use what they already have. :)
QUESTION: I noticed the course is set up for 10 weeks, but I'll be busy for a couple weeks during that time. Will I miss out on all the action if I can't participate fully each week?
ANSWER: The course is set up so that, even though each week's assignment is uploaded to the site every week throughout the 10 weeks, they are archived there so that you can do this at your own pace. Right now, I have the Journaling 101 Online Course in progress and there are some women that are all caught up and others that are working as they can on it. The site will be up permanently and you'll have password access to it so that you can go on any time you like. I also upload the week's assignment by PDF file, as well, so if it works easier for you to print the assignments out and put them in a binder, you can do that, too. I wanted to make these courses as easy as possible for people to complete. I don't want people to rush through it simply for the sake of getting assignments done, but to actually grow and learn through the process.....and for some people, that works better when they're able to do it at their own pace. If you're going to be busy for a couple of weeks, you'll still be fine to pick up where you left off after you come home. And if you find that you're just really busy during to Christmas (as I know some people will), there's always time to catch up after the holidays since the site will be permanent. :)
