We're Moving the Live Classes to KathrynScraps.com!

I have been doing live USTREAM broadcasts since August 2009. Over the years, I have recorded over 600 live paper crafting classes, chatted with memory keepers from all over the world and made some truly amazing friendships. It has been a wonderful experience, but it is time to move on to something even better.

Goodbye, USTREAM

USTREAM has announced that beginning January 6, 2014, they will delete all videos older than 30 days from basic accounts (like mine). Because of this, Mr. Lifeguard and I had to find a new solution for archiving my hundreds of USTREAM videos.
Since so many viewers have also been struggling with USTREAM's quality control issues, we decided it was time to move away from their service and switch to professional, paid services for hosting our own live web broadcasts.

Hello, New Classroom! 

Beginning Thursday, January 2, 2014, I will be broadcasting live from our new online classroom at www.kathrynscraps.com!
I am so excited to be bringing you commercial-free broadcasting, higher quality videos and fewer technical difficulties! With your membership to the online classroom, you not only get access to the video archives, but also continued access to my live web broadcasts.
That's 96 shows a year for just $5.00/month - that's less than $0.60 a show! Or pay just $55.00 for the whole year - that's one month free!
Use the PayPal buttons below to subscribe to either yearly or monthly access, or click here to go to my shop:

Monthly Subscription





Once you have checked out through PayPal, you will be directed to the new classroom where you can create a user id and password. Memberships are typically approved within 24 hours of cleared payment.
Thank you so much for your support over the years - it's been a blast. I can't wait to scrap with you again in our new classroom. See you there in 2014!
Kathryn :D

  4. Kathryn, Have you moved all your old U-stream classes over to your new classroom? I still have a line up of projects that I have not gotten to yet or is it not just 'good bye u-stream' or is it 'good bye u-stream and all old classes'
    Just asking??? I will be ever so happy to donate just to be able to learn from you.
    Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you and Your Family
