A new class and new downloadable sketches

Last month we kicked off the first of our downloadable sketches and classes at Scrapbook Generation. Well, it's that time again and this month we've got a whole new round of sketches to download, including another online class. (I've added an easy to access list of sketches and class on the right sidebar)

Here's a little peek at the newest class:


The non-interactive class is offered in PDF format and focuses on using 6 x 6 paper pads on full-size two-page layouts. There are 11 new sketches and 11 layout examples by me. The 16-page PDF instructions include tips for using the papers uncut, as they are, as squares in different sizes, and as strips. In separate PDFs there are full-size sketches, large pictures of the layout examples, and up-close pictures of the details on each layout. I think it totals around 49 pages.

I have to say, this class was a lot of fun to put together. If you haven't used 6 x 6 paper pads on full-size layouts you really are missing out. It's quick, it's easy, and it's inexpensive. I was often surprised at just how quickly these layouts went together. Plus, the sketches for this class not only work great with 6 x 6 paper pads but also with any size of paper you are using.

The class is non-interactive which means that it isn't instructor led. The class is simply PDFs that you can download and use at your own pace. Don't let the fact that it's not instructor led turn you away. As always, if you ever have any questions about anything in these classes you are welcome to email me at allison@scrapbookgeneration.com and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

You can purchase the class by clicking here.

Don't forget that Sketch Support, the popular online class I taught through My Creative Classroom is available in PDF form at Scrapbook Generation. You can read more about it or purchase it by clicking here.

I've also added another round of sketches to our online store. Here's some more information on those:

Oh Awesome!! I wanted to try the travel one but when I didn't see one this morning I thought I had missed the boat! Can't wait to give this a go! TFS Ali!! :D

I'm very intrigued by the concept of sketches all around the idea of using a 6x6 paper pad. I have so many of those that I need to start using up! I wish they were single page layouts, but maybe I can consider doing the class and just focusing on one side of the layout. :)

Wow! So many NEW sketches to choose from. This is great! I downloaded Sketch Support last month and could not be happier. I have enjoyed all the different tips along with the varous ways to alter each layout. You got my creative juices flowing and I'm having lots of fun. I may actually finish scrapping our last vacation before we head out on the next! Yeah! Glad to see that "support" is still available. Thank you!

I purchased the 6x6 paper class last night...love, love, love! If I didn't have a little scrapbooking crush on Allison before, I certainly do now!!

I purchased the 6x6 class and it is just what I needed to give me more ideas for using my 6x6 papers and will be great for working with scraps, too. Thank you for continuing to share your gift of creativity, Allison!

I am so happy to hear that you all are enjoying the downloads! I'm really enjoying putting together these classes and it makes my days to hear that others are enjoying them too! :)

I made my first page using a sketch from the 6x6 class. I even sent it to your sister. It was fun and fast. I am anxious to start another.
