Happy Saturday SCT friends! Our art director Cathy Zielske has just launched a brand new self-paced e-course called Message to My… and today we are giving away two spots to this amazing class!

This class is designed to help you create a book of messages for someone you love. Whether it’s your child’s first year in school, or an album celebrating many years of marriage, or just a weekly document of your life, you can create a mini album with heart by following Cathy’s simple approach to documenting.

Cathy’s class will provide you with the templates (and printables) needed to create either a digital book or a more traditional mini album of messages. A self-paced e-course, you’ll have immediate access to all of the lessons and can get to work on planning your project.


  • More than 2.5 hours of video instruction
  • 2 complete digital template PSD file packages, featuring my classic and modern designs (each a $9.99 standalone value)
  • 1 set of blank, lined printable PDF pages (6 x 6 and 8 x 8), ready to add photos and your handwritten journaling, and a set of printable album title embellishments in multiple colors and sizes for a traditional scrapbook album approach
  • Album project planner PDF download
  • Immediate access to all five lessons of this class
  • Step-by-step beginner level instructional videos in Photoshop Elements to help with both digital or hybrid completion of the album
  • PDF handout for the step-by-step digital instruction
  • Email access to me for questions and support
  • An invitation to join our closed Facebook community to share and connect with other students


  • A 6 x 6 (or larger, or smaller, your choice!) mini book/album of personal messages combined with photos for someone or something you love that spans a defined period. Whether you create an album of messages to your student during the school year or an album of messages documenting a remodeling project, there are so many ways you can take this album format to create a really cool record of life.


  • How to plan for success with an ongoing album project
  • Ideas for photos and journaling content
  • Digital tips and processing using Photoshop Elements to complete your pages
  • How to organize and upload for digital book printing
