Cards: Beautifully Handmade.....FAQs.

I've had several emails asking questions about my Cards: Beautifully Handmade Class that is starting July 13 over at Get It Scrapped! so I thought creating a blog entry with the frequently asked questions & answers would be appropriate in case other's are on the fence about registering because you just aren't sure how it all works.

Q: How do i register?
You'll need to go to the Cards: Beautifully Handmade registration page at debbiehodge.com and register there. The class fee is $25.

Q: What does the $25 cost include?
The class includes 6 lessons, available in PDF form AND access to a private class message board and gallery where you can talk and share with myself and the other students enrolled. There will be a lesson posted every Monday & Thursday for 3 weeks. You will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer. If you do not already have it installed on your computer, it's available for a free download.

Q: How does an online class work, i'm confused?
As mentioned, the class is available in PDF form. The PDFs include VERY detailed instructions along with supporting photographs to walk you through step-by-step of every process. The PDFs are loaded with tons of samples to reinforce each concept being taught. ALSO, i am available on the private message board to supply you with even more additional samples of beautifully handmade cards. The classes are posted once a twice a week as mentioned above. You will come to the Blackboard area of our private board to download the PDF directly to your computer. You can view it directly on your computer, OR print it and take it with you, AND you can save it to your computer to refer to over and over and over again. They are posted by 9AM, EDT on class days.

Q: Do I have to be there on the exact day the class is posted to be able to get that day's lesson?
NO. the beauty of an online class is that you can make it fit YOUR schedule. no leaving the house. :o) The lessons are posted and will remain posted on the private forum for AT LEAST 3 months.

Q: What if i get confused and have questions once i'm in the class?
We have a private message board for you to talk and communicate with me through the entire 3 weeks....and beyond. You will also be able to share and communicate with the other students in the class. I also welcome questions through email.

Q: What if i have dial-up service? Can i still take the class?
Absolutely. If the files are too large to load online or loading is too slow, we will accomodate and email you the files instead. Then you can still come over to the message board for all the chatter.

Q: What other perks are there to your online class?
There will also be GIVEAWAYS. If you've taken any of my classes before (or read my blog for long) you know how much i love giveaways! :o)

Q: What supplies will i need?
The supplies used are mostly likely basic supplies you already have in your supply of scrapbooking products. Things we will use in EVERY lesson (other than cardstock, patterned paper and miscellaneous embellishments) are: 12" paper trimmer, scissors, adhesive, bone folder, and a paper piercing tool.

If that doesn't answer everything, please email me using that link under my photo in the sidebar and I'll be sure to get back to you right away!
