I’ve posted a few similar posts about my favorite creative ecourses over the years, but I figured I’d share an updated list of some of my most favorite classes of all time. This list consists of a mixture of journaling and scrapbooking classes that I’ve personally taken over the years, some of which are no longer available to purchase. But I wanted to share them with you anyway because they are my most favorite creative ecourses I’ve taken ever.
Summer of Love by Kara Haupt.
I loved this class when I took it the summer of 2013. In fact, it was my very first art journaling class that I ever took. I absolutely love Kara’s take on art journaling. This class is no longer available, but for $22 it was totally worth it. The class is full of art journaling and photography prompts. You even make your own journal from an old hardcover book.
Unravelling: Ways of Seeing Myself by Susannah Conway.
This was the second creative ecourse I’ve ever taken and it’s probably my favorite one to come back to again and again. Susannah’s course is a combination of photography and journaling to look at ones own life and unravel the many layers of the self to get to know and understand yourself better. While she no longer offers this course, Susannah has many other wonderful creative ecourses that all stem from the original ideas she offered in this one.
Tag Mini (Minibook Workshop 2015) by Maggie Holmes.
This was the first scrapbooking class that I ever took. It was one of the minibook workshops from Studio Calico back in 2015. I love Maggie Holmes. When she used to teach scrapbooking courses and actually share her scrapbooks, they were always my favorite! I just love her style and I learned a lot from her taking these classes. This class is currently unavailable for purchase. But keep an eye out on the Studio Calico website. They periodically put their old classes up for sale!
Art Journal Mini (Minibook Workshop 2016) by Caylee Grey.
This is another class from Caylee that I absolutely loved. It was one of the minibook workshops from Studio Calico back in 2016. She shows you how to make a simple pamphlet stitched journal and different ways you can fill it in. This class combines art journaling with scrapbooking, so it’s the perfect blend of artsy memory keeping. This class is currently unavailable for purchase. But keep an eye out on the Studio Calico website. They periodically put their old classes up for sale!
Happy Little Moments by Maggie Holmes.
Another Maggie Holmes class that I absolutely loved! This is an altered book scrapbooking class. In it Maggie shows how she alters an old hardcover book into a scrapbook. She incorporates a lot of her personal style into this course, which I love. This class originally ran on Studio Calico, where it’s currently unavailable for purchase. But you can find it on Big Picture Classes now; you just need an active subscription ($9.95 a month) or you can try out their two-week free trial. But keep an eye out on the Studio Calico website. They periodically put their old classes up for sale!
Paint. Plan. Play by Ashley Goldberg.
This is another class I took at Studio Calico. Pattern and mark maker extraordinaire, Ashley Goldberg teaches you how to create and keep a fun art journal in your planner. This class is definitely geared to scrapbookers (as are all Studio Calico classes are), but I learned a lot about how Ashley creates her fun patterns and the inspiration from her guest teachers are fantastic. This class is currently unavailable for purchase. But keep an eye out on the Studio Calico website. They periodically put their old classes up for sale!
The Minimalist Art Journal by Caylee Grey.
This class is absolutely amazing. And I’m not being biased here because I guest teach a lesson in it. I recently went through and did the entire class, and it’s truly wonderful. I made one of my favorite art journals from this class. Caylee’s lessons are so simple and easy, and all of the guest teachers are just great. The class is available to purchase for $55 and let me tell you, it’s worth every penny.
One Magical Mini by Andrea Bethke.
I was initially drawn to this class after watching Andrea’s Disney Days mini album videos on her Youtube channel. In this course, she shows you how she goes about putting together a Disney scrapbook. I got a lot of inspiration for my own Disney albums from this class. You can find this course on Big Picture Classes. You just need an active ($9.95 a month) or you can try out their two-week free trial.
The Minimalist Art Journal 2.0 by Caylee Grey.
The long awaited sequel to the first MAJ, 2.0 take minimalist art journaling to a whole new level. I haven’t actually finished the course, since it’s so new and I’m just beginning it, but from what I know of Caylee’s teaching and the awesome list of guest teachers, it’s going to be amazing! This is the most expensive class in this list at a hefty $75, but I’m sure it’s all worth it. If you’re keen on taking both Minimalist Art Journal classes, be sure to check out the course bundle option, where you can purchase both classes for $95.
Artist in Bloom Journal by Nazy from Amity Bloom.
This is the only junk journal course on this list, but it’s one of my favorite creative ecourses! I love everything Nazy creates and these little Artist in Bloom journals are just darling! In this course, she goes step by step and teaches you how to make your own Artist in Bloom journal. It’s just a fun thorough class. For only $60, I highly recommend it!
