Design Star with Traci Reed
Are you an aspiring scrapbooking kit designer? Maybe you’ve been designing for a while and still question design basics or have yet to find your design voice? 9-year veteran kit designer Traci Reed understands exactly how you might feel. She shares, “When I started designing 9 years ago, no one was able to help or show me what to do!” But all that can be different for you!
Traci’s Design Star is an 8-week, mega-course packed with video lessons and guided assignments that will take you from beginner’s kit inspiration to outstanding kit completion. From color theory to typography, repeating patterns to extractions, you’ll learn how to use them all to craft gorgeous kit designs while using Adobe Photoshop Elements or Adobe Photoshop — Traci’s software of choice!
Design Star includes informative video tutorials, software demonstrations, PDF handouts, plus weekly question and answering sessions with Traci via video chat. At the end of class, you’ll sit down with Traci virtually in a one-on-one session identifying your strengths and skills with constructive criticism every aspiring designer desperately needs. This opportunity to talk privately with an industry insider does not come often!
With Traci as your mentor, you’ll find your design voice and learn all the right skills to create a portfolio of captivating kits and designs!

Q. I have Adobe Photoshop Elements. Can I take this class too?
A. The course material was recorded using Adobe Photoshop CS6; however, most of the techniques demonstrated can be recreated using Adobe Photoshop Elements version 9 and above. Traci will discuss PSE work-arounds during the weekly Q&A video chats but she strongly suggests signing up for the Creative Cloud to really start off on the right foot as a designer.
Q. How long will I have access to the class?
A. Scrapaneer workshops you have purchased will be available for the lifetime of site.
Q. Will Design Star be offered again?
A. Great question! Though we haven’t finalized our workshop schedule for 2014, Design Star will not be available again until sometime next year.
