Winners and a Sketch Sale!

Wow. What a great bunch of comments you all left on Friday and over the weekend. It seriously made my weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing many more Life Documented sketches to with you!

I wish I could give every single one of you a book! I decided, because there were so many comments, to giveaway not just two but three copies of Scrapbook Generation's Sketch Fusion with Simple Stories.

The winners are:

What a great idea! The chalkboard title goes great with the colors you used here. I wasn't quite sure what I would do with the chalkboard embellishments.

So glad to see your take on Pocket Pages. Love it!

I love the idea of one side being a traditional scrapbooking layout, and the other side using the pocket pages!! The best of both worlds!! Of course I love that you will be creating a sketch each month too :)

If you all could email me at to let me know if you would like the digital version or the print version (plus your address if you want the print version.) that would be great!

Thank you everyone for making my Simple Stories debut so wonderful! :)

SG's Super Summer Sale

Scrapbook Generation is celebrating summer with a week long sale both in store and online. You can read all the details on the Scrapbook Generation blog.

All of my online classes and sketch bundles will be 20% off for the entire week! How awesome is that! 

Here's a look at the classes:

Online Classes

Sketch Support Class - $15.00 $12.00

The non-interactive class includes over 80 pages of instructional materials and sample layouts. Originally priced at $30 and now offered for half the price ($15), the class is exactly the same minus the online interaction with me. (However, if you have any questions about anything, don't hesitate to ask either here on my blog or by emailing me at

You can read more about Sketch Support, the class by clicking here and here and can purchase the class here.

6 x 6 Paper Pads Class - $15.00 $12.00

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.

Photo Arrangement Replay Class - $15.00 $12.00

When you think about it there are only so many photo arrangements that are possible with scrapbooking. Especially if you like to use the same size often or even exclusively (like 4 x 6"). This class focuses on using the same photo arrangement multiple times and getting different looks by changing up the designs around the photos. The idea is to get the most out of photo arrangements and save time without ending up with layouts that look exactly the same.

The class includes 20 new two-page sketches (that's a lot!) with four photo arrangements. Each photo arrangement has five sketches with completely different designs. Twelve of the sketches have layout examples (three for each photo arrangement) and then there are 8 "bonus" sketches (two for each photo arrangement) for a total of 20 new two-page sketches. There are also 5 bonus photo arrangements for you to practice with and an 11-page PDF of instructions filled with design tips and ideas.

That is a lot of sketches, layouts, and information for only $15.00!

You can purchase Photo Arrangement Replay by clicking here. 


All of the bundles include one-page sketches, two-page sketches, cards, embellishments sketches/ideas, quotes and titles that fit a specific theme. Even though the sketches fit a specific theme, they can be easily adapted to fit any theme.
