I’ve put a lot of hours & love into my next class (as I always do!) and I can’t wait for it to get started. I’m very passionate about the classes I teach, and I believe that not only is that important in the materials I provide students, but also in making myself available during class to students. Skype, email, message boards… I’m available EVERY DAY in some form to students for the 4-week duration. Chatting is so my favorite part!! Anyhow – here’s more info on Creative Retreat:

This is a ONE TIME ONLY class – it will not be repeated!! So if you’re thinking about it I urge you to go ahead and sign up. BPC offers lifetime access to materials – so you truly can work at your own pace.
What is it? Well, I’ve designed this class to be highly customizable to what YOU want. You can use any supplies you like, make as many or as few layouts as you please. There’s no such thing as “required” assignments, so you can’t fall behind. Of course if you WANT mandatory assignments just email me, and I’ll give ’em to you. This is a very instructor and fellow student interactive course if you want it to be.
If you want it to be.
That’s key. In addition to the handout (that has layouts + how-to), you get a project (non-layout) tutorial, and at least 5 emails with ideas and inspiration too. Oh, and I have some FABULOUS prizes from wonderful sponsors! One of the ideas I had for this class was to keep an inspiration folder/journal/file. Some place where you can make notes & save ideas for future. I go into that in depth in the pre-class materials, as well as provide prompts on what to add to it throughout class. I also provide a weekly audio/visual presentation too designed to inspire & motivate.
It’s going to be up to each student what they want to focus on, how they treat class, and how they spend their time in retreat. Social? Off creating alone? Somewhere in the middle? It’s all up to you, the student. I *love* the format we’ve got going for this and that you can do what speaks to you, and skip (or return later) to the rest.
I can’t wait for class to start next month! I’ve got all the materials ready, and I’m looking forward to this lovely gathering of scrapbookers. Oh how I LOVE the community of BPC classes, and getting to know fellow crafters better. So fun!! I hope you’ll join me – and if you have any questions, concerns, comments – or anything at all you want to know about class feel free to email me (mflaum @ comcast . net) or leave a comment here.
