      Mary - Jen, a speed scrap is where there is a limited time frame in which to get a scrapbook page completed usually with some specific parameters set. I’ve never attended one before either. Have a great day!ReplyCancel

        Jackie - I participated in a speed scrap over at It was fun! They said what type of page it should be using 5 elements, 3-4 pictures and a text box (or something like that). It was fun because everyone posted their pages as soon as they were completed and you get to see a lot of ideas from some very creative people. I highly recommend doing a speed scrap at least once…it’s neat!ReplyCancel

    Ola - This says it’s instructor led. Is it phone calls? webinars? at a particular time/day? More info please. thanks.ReplyCancel

    • November 1, 2014 - 8:30 am

      Mary - Ola, instructor led means that we are emailing out the lessons and available for help via email and the private FB group during the duration of the class. Once the class goes self-paced you have access to the lessons all at once and you work at your own pace on your own. Thanks for asking.ReplyCancel
