Fairly recently, I stumbled upon a blog written by the Scrappy Genealogist, Jennifer Shoer, in which she shared her work as she completed the “Family History Album Class offered at JessicaSprague.com. I really enjoy digital scrapbooking and after reflecting on the template of week two of Sprague’s class I signed up for the course — The basic templates for the family tree and pedigree were worth the premium I needed to pay. I rarely use quick pages or templates provided by others, but these were worth it. Sure, I could have produced something similar, but it would have taken me several hours, at best.
Now, before you rush out to get purchase this class, let me make a comment or two. This is not something something for the first time scrap booker If you don’t have a nice graphic software, say Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, this isn’t for you. If you don’t have a good basic knowledge of using your graphic software including layers, masks, etc., this isn’t for you. Although I applaud the work of Sprague and the combined concept of genealogy and digital scrapbooking, the genealogy side of the course is very basic. Don’t purchase the product hoping to learn new genealogy skills.
