We had a fabulous class!

We had great time sharing layouts and inspiring one another in our latest Weekend Warrior Sketch Class! If you missed it, watch for another class in early August! I will be posting those dates soon.

The class members posted well over 100 layouts in this class! AWESOME!! I can’t possibly share all of the amazing pages here, but I want to share a few. Here are some member layouts (based on the sketches from class) that I loved. I hope these inspire you as they inspire me. (There are so many more I loved in class!!!! If I didn’t get to share one of your pages, I will in the future.)

June Weekend Warriors!

We are gearing up for another Weekend Warrior class!

The classroom will open Wednesday, June, 18th with a pre-class warm-up sketch. Then we will have the sketches, tips and tutorials presented Friday-Sunday. You will have another whole week to finish up your layouts for a chance to win a fun prize. 🙂

Here are the photo sizes on the sketches. Of course, you can use your own judgment and change the photos as needed…these are just suggestions.

Pre class sketch- two 4×4’s
Sketch #1- DPS- six 4×6’s (H) (you could use an 8×10 H collage instead of four of the 4×6’s)
Sketch #2- three 3×3’s
Sketch #3- DPS- two 4×6’s (H), four 3×4’s (V) (or, you could use an 8×10 H collage and a couple of 3×4’s)
Sketch #4- two 4×6’s (V) (or you could substitute a 5×7 H here)
Sketch #5- DPS- four 4×6’s (H), two 4×4’s
Sketch #6- two 4×4’s (a 5×7 V would work great instead)

I hope to see you in class!! Register here-

A little “Fabulousness” for this Friday!

Between the class that just ended and all the challenges we have has so far this year there are TONS of FABULOUS layouts in the gallery.  The creativity of all our members is so inspiring!

I was so delighted when I saw some of the new layouts that have been posted in the last month.  Why not stop by the gallery and check them out and while you are there leave a little “love” for some of the fabulous layouts?

Here are a few I just had to share:

A little sunshine from daiva!

Check out this FABULOUS card by angiejon from the March envelope swap!

And this lovely page by Stacey also using some of her March swap elements. So pretty!

And there are so many more!!! Take a look for yourself.  You never know what you may find that will help inspire your next layout or card.

Have a great weekend!

The Class Gallery is full of new INSPIRATION!

We wrapped up another wonderful Weekend Warriors Sketch Class this last week. Seven new sketches by our very own Stacey and many samples from the design team were presented.

I am always amazed at how much inspiration Stacey provides in each one of the tips and techniques she presents in class. Look at this watercolor technique that she introduced us to on her sample for Sketch #1. Stacey used just the left side of this double page sketch. Aren’t those watercolor circles wonderful?

When asked what her favorite sketch was our Guest Designer, Lori, couldn’t choose just one. So, I chose this adorable one of her brand new granddaughter! Lori provided us with this too cute sample for the Pre-class Sketch. Adorable, right???

I fell in love with Sketch #6! I’m a huge fan of the one page, one picture layout so this was right up my alley. If you are looking for more one page, one picture layout inspiration you can view my challenges from the beginning of the year here, here and here. Did I mention I adore this sketch???

With all these fabulous samples, it’s no wonder our class gallery is busting at the seams! There are so many great layouts it’s hard to just showcase a few. Check out the gallery when you have a few minutes to browse. You can see the gallery here.

Here are a few of my favorites!

I love Nola’s take on Sketch #4. Aren’t those papers she used darling?

How about this one by Lolis? She did a great job with Sketch #6.

I absolute adore this version of Sketch #1 by Megan. Her little guy is sooo cute!!!

And look at this one by Desiree! I’m not sure what’s more adorable, her layout or that kiddo? Great job on the Pre-class Sketch!

Sketch #3 turned spring by Wendi! What fun colors she used!!!

We even had some great digital layouts this class too! Don’t forget that the templates for SBC and Panstoria are available for each sketch.

Here’s an awesome layout showcasing Sketch #2 by Tricia. Her colors are really fun and her layout is a perfect example of how you can change up each sketch to suit your layout!

And finally a digital layout from our Template Designer, Angie. How fun is this one? Angie did a great job with Sketch #5.

If you happened to miss the April class (or any previous class) you can still purchase it here. Taking a previous class is a great way to get more pages done between Inspired to Scrap classes.

Our next class will be in June. Hope you can join us!!!

Class is open!

We have a brand new class starting at Inspired to Scrap!

As always, we base the class around NEW, never before seen, sketches. Then we add sample layouts based on the sketches, tips and a special tutorial. We throw in a couple of prizes, some chatting and lots of encouragement and support.

Coming up in this class, we have several ideas for 3×4 Project Life cards as well as some new uses for old scrappy products that might be sitting around in your home.

And here’s a little sneak of one of our prizes this month-

I hope you will consider joining us in class! We have a great time completing more pages together!
