Scrapbook Lab Syllabus

We know it is important for you to get the most from your enrollment, and that includes the ability to plan ahead and prepare.

Understanding this, we have developed a schedule for our Creative College labs that will enable students to get the most during their craft time, and from our University.

Last updated on Oct 4, 2019 @ 7:43 pm

Each Scrapbook Lab is a month long series of classes that result in the creation of four unique 2-page 12”x 12” layouts using paper from a Close To My Heart scrapbooking kit. Classes are a mix of prerecorded videos, interactive guides, and live workshops. Students are welcomed to follow along or work at their own speed.

Scrapbook Lab Syllabus

The Classes

The Scrapbook Lab is one of our more complex lesson formats featuring multiple class types that span an entire month. Each month's classes are stored in a single lesson page that are found in our library.

To best facilitate your time, the intro and first two classes for each Scrapbook Lab are pre-recorded and posted on the 1st of every month. Classes 1 and 2 utilize our custom made interactive guide system paired with instructional videos to help make your life as a student as easy as possible. Pre-recording and releasing the videos as a group will give you a decent amount of time to get your work ready for the live labs. Below is more info on what is included with each class.

The Intro

A video where we go over the kit, the layouts, special requirements, and prepare for the next four steps. This is generally a very short class but it has a lot of valuable information.

Step 1: Prep & Cutting Guide
