One of the points that really makes your content have so much value is that I can learn the principles and apply them to digital or paper or hybrid work. And not just in scrapbooking, but cards and even sewing. — Linda Lapichak

Designing awesome–even masterful–scrapbook pages is not difficult when experienced designers lay out the terrain and then share proven techniques for navigating that terrain.

When you’ve got a passion for a hobby, you want to go deeper in, refining your skills, learning, talking and thinking about what you love. You need the company and advice of others with the same passion.

“I have been a subscriber from the very first issue and have loved it…each change you make is an improvement in my mind (though how it can get any better is beyond me!!) You have an amazing product and it is among the most useful and creative out there. I am inspired each month…” -Suzan Tiemroth-Zavala

At MSD in 2013 we bring you 6 top-notch ezines (which are really in-depth classes), 30 designer interviews and 24 chances to get feedback and join the conversation at our new “office hours.”

I have continued my membership with Debbie Hodge’s Masterful Scrapbook Design. At some point I referred to this as a class, but I’m wrong. Debbie calls it a seminar. I’m calling it the best online publication you can purchase.” -Gayl Staffler

200+ page interactive e-zine

Each class delves into one aspect of scrapbooking with our team and guest teachers. A comprehensive seminar and designer lessons provide both straight-forward instruction AND deeper insights. We synthesize the approaches of guest teachers to explain things in a way that will make “design light bulbs” go off.

annotated layouts

Each class includes 50+ paper and digital scrapbook pages made by the guest teachers and our base team. Teachers are selected for their ability to address the focus topic as well as for the variety of styles and techniques they use as a team in order to expose you to a range of ideas and looks. Every layout is annotated to provide insight into how the designers choose photos and product, as well as their process for putting pages together.

 style-lifting guides with templates and sketches

“Style lifting” guides include sketches and templates and analysis that makes it possible for you to get the look of each of our teachers. Copying the masters is a great way to grow and develop your own style.

teacher interviews

In-depth webinar interviews with guest teachers are broadcast live so that you can show up and ask questions on the spot. They’re also recorded and presented in video and audio formats so that you can view or listen to  them later. This is when your assumptions are challenged, your understanding of process deepened, and unexpected inspiration flows.

office hours for feedback on your own work

Attend live or leave questions and layouts in the forums that you’d like feedback on and we’ll talk about them in our live GoToMeeting webinars. Join us live with earbuds and a microphone and chat about your thoughts and questions on the class. Share and, if you want, get feedback and guidance on your own pages.
