Sketch Solutions Sneak Peeks and a Giveaway!!


It's just two weeks until the beginning of my workshop, Sketch Solutions, and I thought it might be fun to share a few sneak peeks of some of the layouts I created. 


Just a very few. I created several new layouts for the lessons and am in the process of making more for the class blog. Lots of new layouts! Which I hope will make for a fun and inspiring workshop. 


For the 28 days of the workshop, you'll get a new sketch every other day, accompanied by two layouts and a useful lesson in creative adaptation. With this foundation, you'll learn why and how to harness the power of sketches to truly simplify your scrapbooking process. This interactive online workshop includes 14 main sketches, 14 bonus sketches, and a free copy of my eBook, Stretch Your Sketches.


A sketch provides a solid foundation for a scrapbook page layout, so you can create a well-balanced design in less time—every time. With that piece of the puzzle covered, you can let your creativity soar in the areas of color, photo selection, product combinations, techniques, and journaling.


And now the exciting news, I have two free spots to give away to Sketch Solutions! To enter, leave a comment telling me what you'd like to learn most about using sketches. Comments will remain open until Monday May 19th at 11:59 pm PST. Please be sure to leave your email address so that I can contact you if you win! I will select two winners at random and they will be contacted with instructions on how to register for class. 

Good luck!!

  7. I would love to learn how to interpret sketches more loosely so they don't look so linear or exactly like the sketch (although I do love doing that too). It would be great to be able to use the same sketch on different layouts and have them look different.

  13. i like sketches b/c they help me to get layouts done quickly--so i esp like it when they include dimensions (which i can alter as i need to). i also think it's helpful when there are a few finished layouts with the sketch to show the different directions/looks a sketch can take. i would love to win the class and ebook! thanks for inspiring sneak peaks and blog!

  16. I love sketches! I would love to learn how to put them together well! I mean, its great if the sketch shows striped paper, polka dots or whatever, but if I don't have that, then I'm lost. Do I change the pattern? the colour? I would love to learn more about that.

  23. Hi! I love sketches but so many of them are 12 x 12 and I often scrap 8.5 x 11. I'd like to get better at turning a 12 x 12 sketch into an 8.5 x 11 page. I really like your style and I think your sketches would work well for me. If needed, you can contact me at ejmaus at comcast.net and thanks!

  40. Donna, this is not just a comment to win but a serious question. I'm a hybrid scrapper. Is there a chapter on how to adapt sketches/templates to a smaller size? i don't scrap 12x12 but 7x9 i would like to learn how to adapt all available sketches to that size so that white space around is the same size and all and look balanced. It's not just a matter of resize the available sketch, that doesn't work. I like to keep photo the same size and not resize them.
    Thanks.

    1. Hi Tink, in both eBooks there are examples on how to adapt sketches from 12x12 to 8.5x11 and vice versa. I also include additional tips that can be used with other designs/sketches and I will be covering this concept in the workshop.

      As to adapting a sketch from 12x12 to 7x9 and keeping the same photo size - that is going to be hard to do in most cases since that is a fairly significant change in page size. I do share my approach for maintaining the feel of a design and give tips for how to best do that, but it is in the context of going from 12x12 to 8.5x11 or the reverse.

      I don't know if that answer is helpful or not. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask!

  42. This looks fantastic! I would love to learn how to simplify my process and still have a balanced, finished look to my pages . Thanks for the chance!

  43. I love working with sketches - it always gives me a great starting point for most of my pages, even though the final outcome may be very different. I primarily still scrap 8.5x11 so if the sketches are 12x12, it's always nice to have tips on how to shrink them to 8.5x11. Thanks so much!
