Summer of Sketches | 2018

Looking for some creative inspiration to get you through the summer? Join Kelly NoelLisa Truesdell and Pam Baldwin, as well as their team of talented contributors for a revamp of this popular class featuring a summer-long session of “round robin” sketch inspiration. From June through August, each week will bring you new lessons bursting with fresh sketches that provide the ultimate starting point for any story you want to tell. Every Monday, students will have access to a new video and layout from one of the instructors, two additional layouts from contributors, and four all new sketches. That's a total of 48 sketches over 12 weeks! By the end of class, you’ll have access to a treasure trove of inspiration, ready for any time you need a little creative boost! 

Please note: This class originally ran in summer of 2018. By enrolling now, you'll have access to all of the class material immediately and will be able to access the class message board to view previous comments. However, the message board and gallery will not be monitored by an instructor.

She found the online scrapbooking community in late 2004 and was totally obsessed from that time on. Kelly lives in Florida with her husband Tom and their three boys (Jackson, Brady, & Sawyer), and when she's not at one of her boys' baseball games, she's working with Studio Calico's teachers as the Education Content Coordinator.

What comes with this class

  • 4 start-to-finish videos each (12 total) from Kelly, Lisa and Pam showing how they went from sketch to finished layout. Your teachers will be sharing tips and tricks for adapting layouts to fit the number and sizes of photos you have, and ideas for switching them up to keep your projects looking fresh, no matter how many times you use the same sketch.
  • Round robin inspiration: See how each sketch changes as it passes from one artist to another! We'll start each week's lesson with a sketch based on one teacher's work, then each scrapbooker will work from a sketch of the layout created by the person before them. 
  • 36 all new layouts from Kelly, Lisa, Pam and their contributors
  • 48 sketches - 12 sketches based on the teachers' past work, plus 36 more based on the class projects.
  • A printable PDF of all of the class sketches
  • Access to a class message board and gallery, where you can share and learn with your teachers and fellow students
  • Challenges to inspire you to use what you've learned
