Two Views Album Project

Two Views Album Project:

Taught by Cathy Zielske

In Cathy Zielske's self-paced class, you will create an 8" x 8" album built around two perspectives--yours and someone else's. It could be a daughter or son, a sister, a best friend, a partner or a husband. Choose from 15 thoughtful prompts, ranging from "Who I am today" to "What I most admire in you" to "What are my dreams for the future" and begin to build a personal, meaningful album that celebrates the unique perspectives of two people.

Much More than a Simple Scrapbook of Photos...
This album project lets you explore topics that matter and share the experience with someone special in your life. It's really a chance to dig down, get personal, and make connections and discoveries about yourself and someone else.

Featuring Cathy's signature clean and simple design style, the album prompts are custom designed graphics that set the tone for the look and feel of this project. You choose the topics that you want to cover, the journaling fonts, the papers and of course, the photos to complete the album.

With simple, step-by-step instructions designed to let you use Word or Photoshop to complete the album, you will focus on capturing authentic answers to these thought-provoking prompts, and then create a 21-page (or more) finished album - one that combines the best of software and traditional scrapbooking products.

Note: Fully layered .PSD files and instruction are available for digital scrapbookers.
