    How did I miss this?? I’m all about learning new things. Dang.
    What I’s like to learn? I’m not even sure right now. I am in a bit of a rut and doing only clean lined, faster pages at the moment. I was super artsy a year ago. I guess life changes make a difference in your art, too, huh?

    I’d love to learn more about shadowing, like how to warp shadows in order to make digital elements look more 3-D.
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I have all the products you mentioned but I feel like I don’t even scratch the surface with Lightroom. I would definitely like to expand my knowledge on that program!

    Great giveaway!

    This is so amazing. What a great way to learn new techniques. I am open to learning anything and everything. I am really needing a jolt to get my creative fire burning again. Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway.

  6. #9

    Thanks for letting us know about this. I guess there isn’t one technique I want to learn…I just want to learn! Thanks again, and merry merry.

  7. #10

    I’d like to learn all things Photoshop Elements. Thanks for your generosity and wishing your family a Blessed and Merry Christmas.

  8. #11

    i would love this! I have considered subscribing multiple times! I would like to be exposed to different styles without the burden of a full class. I have “taken” so many classes I haven’t finished-I think this is just what I need.

  9. #12

    I love learning new techniques and perhaps digging in deeper with Photoshop’s tools. I guess I would like to learn everything I don’t already know. 😉 Thanks for the chance, and Merry Christmas!

  10. #13

    I love watching over the shoulder of “the experts” to see how they do things as they create their beautiful pages. So I guess I’d just like to watch and learn new techniques as they share them in Photoshop (elements).

  11. #15

    I love to learn – everything!
    Is it ok if I say two instead of one?
    #1 most needed right now: I would love to learn shadows – how to make good ones, best place to put them ……
    #2 really want to do this better: I would love to learn how to make my own designs – especially how to make beautiful pocket cards.

    Thank you for the chance and have a wonderful holiday season!

    I would love to learn to do things in PSE that right now I don’t even know are possible. I had never heard of Digital Coffee Break, so will be checking them out. Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. #19

    This sounds great! I think I’d benefit from learning more about photo editing… I feel pretty comfortable in Photoshop, but I know I’m only scratching the surface of what it can do.

    I need more help with layers. I want to use photo shop elements to tweak my photos….but using layers is a challenge for me to comprehend

    Jocelyn Thompson

    I love my Photoshop but I am still very much a beginner. I have taken your Simple Scrapbook class and learned a lot but I would still like to go deeper! How to make my own elements and/or take elements from another template and save to use elsewhere. Thanks Cathy!

    Dawn McF

    Learning Lightroom is the new thing for me since I just got it recently. And brushes and digital stamps creating PL cards. Wonderful giveaway!

  17. #26

    January 1, 2015 … I’m going digital! Have a new computer, elements 12… A workshop would be PERFECT! I’m always confused by layers … So that would be a great start!

    Abby P

    After years of begging, my husband bought me a new camera and lens similar to what you and Ali Edwards use. So, now I want to move to full manual mode and eventually RAW. Learning Lightroom would be GREAT! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  19. #32

    How to work more efficiently in PSE. I seem to always take the long way around and make the most simple job complex.

  20. #34

    I’d like to learn more about how to make some of my own digi stuff – patterned paper and whatnot. Thanks for the chance to win!

  21. #35

    This is new to me. Very excited to find out about it. Dipping my toe into digital scrapbooking is on the list for 2015. So kindergarten. That’s what I need. Thanks!

    May jump into the Adobe cloud subscription w Lightroom & PS, both new to me, so visual learner that I am … Videocasts would be perfecto mundo!! Thanks for the opportunity (which is a therapist friend’s slang really meaning ‘no f$&#ing way’) BUT I really do means thanks for the chance! 🙂

  24. #40

    What an awesome giveaway! It will be so helpful to actually see how the digital magic happens. I’d love to learn more about using brushes and overlays.

  27. #45

    Hmm — I’m pretty comfortable with digital, but perhaps I am in a rut. I guess I need to learn how to use brushes. Took a class quite a while ago about Brushes, but didn’t really use them afterward. I am sure there are times I could use them if I had a clue.

  28. #46

    I have always wanted to try digital scrapbooking. I have a few friends that love digital and all the cute things that u can do with all the brushes and bits and pieces. I love their layouts and projects, so I will have to try it. PLUS I know one of the artist in this group personally. It’s so nice to see her getting out there in the scrapbooking world of creativeness.

  29. #47

    I have always wanted to try digital scrapbooking. I love all the things that you can do with all the brushes and bits and pieces. I have a few friends that have gone from hands on scrapping to digital, and their work is so nice. Maybe its time for me to try it. PLUS I know one of these amazing ladies that is offering this coffee break personally. She is a dear friend and super creative. Way to go girl!

    There is so much that I want to learn with photoshop Elements that I don’t even know where to begin! Thanks for the chance win! Happy Holidays!

  33. #53

    I have a million ideas for LO’s both paper and digital. Getting motivated to actually do them is what I need. Last few years have been rough and I need a boost to actually DO pages!

  34. #55

    I’d like to learn how to make realistic shadows for unique items. I’d love to use brushes better, and I really want to learn how to simplify and speed up the scrapping process.

  35. #56

    Always interested in Digi Scrapping; Love learning EVERYTHING. I love Scrapaneers – it’s the best website ever!

    Thanks, Cathy (and Scrapaneers). I have been digi- and hybrid scrapping for years, but there’s still so much to learn. I’ve dabbled with blending, but would like to learn more, and some of the seemingly hidden techniques of PSE that would help me to be more efficient.

  37. #58

    Love the idea of video podcasts, especially while I am scrapbooking! Like a lot of others, creating realistic shadows is one of the many things I would like to learn. Thank you for the opportunity to win a great prize…

    My dad passed a short time ago and I was given custody of his photograph and document collection, which I’m almost done digitizing. I would love to learn about general layout design to tell a story.

    Melanie Sheman

    I’d love to learn how industry digital scrappers use techniques that I’ve been working to master. I’ve taken a number of Tiffany’s classes through the years, brushes, blending, clustering, and shadowing. that have really improved my skills. I would love to see in process how a technique was used by known talent to make a layout a standout.

  40. #64

    I’m just now learning about this Digital Coffee Shop. It sounds awesome! I feel like I’ve only scratched the surfaces of PS and Lightroom. I still remember the day I learned how to resize a brad in PSElements 7 years ago. I’ve learned so much since that day but I know there’s so much more to learn.

  41. #67

    I would like to learn how to put together a page from scratch using clipping masks, shadowing and everything in between. I usually give up in frustration because I can’t get things to go where I want them to! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  42. #68

    Lightroom remains a bit of a mystery to me and shadowing techniques. Thanks for the opportunity and Merry Christmas!

    Valerie W

    I always learn from watching others use PS, would love to learn more about shortcuts, shadows, brushes (I just cannot figure them out!), and, well, everything else! Thx for the offer, sweet!

    Gradients. I think they are way cool and would like to see a whole class on them. There is one video (I think it’s in one of the all star classes) that just kind of teased me for more. No question, the gradient tool is awesome, and for me, way underused because I just don’t what all I can do with it!

  45. #72

    I would like to learn more about Lightroom. It seems to do so much, but difficult for me to learn. Thanks for all you do for us!
