The Inspiration University: Design Principles class is now ready as a self-paced class! Join Britta Swiderski as she walks you through the Design Principles and shows dozens of methods and techniques for applying them to your own projects. 

The class consists of 10 complete lessons with additional introduction and review, over 5 hours of exclusive video content.

There are more than two dozen never-before-seen cards from Britta and a wonderful group of guest designers, all helping you understand and learn about the Design Principles. It's like going to college for card making and design all at the same time! 

Included with this self-paced class is a refined, printable ebook to guide you through the lessons and supplement each lesson with more tips and tricks. All class material is accessed through the portal at brittaswiderski.com and Google Drive; class participants have lifetime access to all class material.
