Sketch Support, Session #2

is now open for enrollment! Due to the quick sell out of session #1 of Sketch Support we have opened up a second session for those that missed out on the first one. Ali Edwards is doing a giveaway right now on her blog for two $25 scholarships towards the class of your choice at My Creative Classroom. This includes Sketch Support.

In case you missed it when I posted about the first session of the class here is all the information.


Sketches are, undeniably, a great tool for any scrapbooker to have in their stockpile of supplies. Design can often be the most frustrating part of creating a scrapbook layout. BUT it doesn't have to be! Sketches can save you time and take the headache out of trying to figure out where to put all the elements. Sketches get to do all the heavy lifting, allowing you to have all the fun.

In this five week course you'll learn to stop wasting valuable time on page design and how to use sketches to increase your productivity, expand your style, and multiply your personal satisfaction. Over the five weeks you'll create layouts and creative projects all using exclusive Allison Davis sketches. You'll see how easy it is to adapt a sketch to your own style or skill level and how to add simple to extreme variations to get multiple uses out of one sketch.

Each week will feature a new sketch that we'll use as our starting point for three different layouts or projects. You'll learn how to adapt the sketch to fit the photos you have, the theme you want, the journaling space you need, and how to add more or use less, whatever fits you. Throughout the course you'll also learn tips for picking out papers, Allison's easy design tricks for keeping the focus of your layout on the photos, and fun techniques to get the most out of your supplies.

Start Date: Wednesday, October 6
Fee: $30
Length: 5 weeks

One thing I want to point out is that there is no kit for this class. Why? Because I want you to use what you have on hand and the things you are comfortable with. This class is all about using sketches to benefit you. I don't want you to be stuck with papers or products that might not be your style. This way you get to pick out papers and embellishments that perfectly fit what you are working on. I will have a supply list of what I used just in case you do want to use exactly what I did.

So how does this class differ from Sketch Week here on my blog?

• you will get 5 new sketches that aren't in any of the Sketches for Scrapbooking books
• it's kind of like Sketch Week five weeks in a row!
• there will be lots of time with me so I can help you with areas you might be struggling with.
• most of the class is focusing on getting the most out of sketches but there will also be tips and tricks for design, techniques, finishing touches, picking out papers, and more.
• each week will focus on a specific area of the sketch like photos, papers, embellishments, title, etc.

Plus, everyone who signs up for the class will get 10% off any Sketches for Scrapbooking order!

For those of you that have signed up for the first session of this class, this is the same class just offered a second time. I don't want to confuse anyone and have someone sign up for both. It's the same content in both sessions. :)

I'm getting my computer fixed this week so hoping to sign up for the second class in oct. thanks so much for offering it again and congrats on it being a sellout.

I had a question about your layouts from the last sketch week. The layouts you do with both boys in it which album will it go into? I didn't know if you have a brother's album and each of their own or what? Have a good week.

Amy from KC said...

Ooooooo, good question Dawn! I was wondering if they went into a family album, or if you repliated them to put in each boy's album.

I am in taking this class right now and I highly recommend it. I was having some trouble with a layout and Allison provided 2 suggestions and what a difference in the layout. I can't wait until week 2.
