Big Picture Classes: 28 Days of Sketches: Round 2

I'm very happy to be a part of a fun class coming up at Big Picture Classes. The class is hosted by Lisa Day and is called 28 Days of Sketches: Round 2. With this class you'll receive 28 brand new sketches and 56 exclusive projects from Lisa and the seven guests contributing to the class. Sketches are a fabulous starting point for your projects, leaving you more time to focus on the fun products, photos and telling your stories. If you've followed my blog long then you know that I am a big fan of sketches. I used the ones for this class for card inspiration. Just because a sketch is intended for scrapbook layout, it doesn't mean that you can't interpret it for a smaller scale card too. I love thinking outside the box to find some fantastic new layouts for my cards.

Class details:
The class starts on July 19th and ends August 16th. Registration ends on July 25th. The class last 4 weeks. You'll get 28 daily emails, each containing a new sketch, 28 daily handouts, downloadable PDF sketches, a private posting gallery, a message board and 2 live chats with Lisa.

Here a sampling of what you'll see in class:
I can't wait to see all the completed layouts and sketches, starting on July 19th!
Win a spot:
Each guest designer, including me, will be giving away a free spot to the class. To enter for my free spot in the class, leave a comment on this post telling me why you like to use sketches for your cards or layouts. Comments will be closed for the drawing on July 16th, 8:00am Central Time.

Then check out all the other guest designer blogs for even more changes to win a free spot in the class:


Good luck and hope to see you in class!

Sketches are about the only way I can get started...would love to see all the great work by such great artists!

Lisa said...

Well, I'm in a scrapbooking slump. I have done a few pages lately but before that, it had been a year. I think using some sketches would jump start my creativity again and get me back into creating more consistently!!

I love sketches, they make it easy to organize my card or page. I think of them like recipes for papercrafting. I can't cook without a recipe and I am much happier with my pages and cards when I use a sketch. Thanks for offering the great prize!

Sketches always give you ideas for your project that you would have not thought of your self. Sketches are a starting point for your projects. I like the different contrast items that sketches have in them.

leanne said...

Mostly use sketches for layouts.....

Kayla said...

Thank you for the great opportunity, I hope I will be the lucky one. Only reently i learned to use sketches, before i thought they are like a "curb" for my creativity, but now i think it's like a spark starting the process.

Lorraine said...

Love to use sketches for layouts, but a good sketch that is used repeatedly in a mini album gives it a sense of unity, too! Sounds like a fabulous class!

Sheri said...

I've just started dabbling in sketches and love them because they give me a starting point. Some days I can just fumble along and not know what to have as my foundation, or use the same one all the time. Sketches inspire me to go out of my box.

Gail S. said...

Sounds like fun! I would love to win this - I have always enjoyed the sketches that you have shared :)

Mel said...

I love sketches, and I've taken one of Lisa's classes before, and it was fabulous!

Melinda said...

I would love to take this class but will be gone for one week during it on holidays, does this matter? The last time I did 28 layouts, it was great to get back to my layouts that were being neglected.

gail said...

This is definitely a class I need as sketches would help get me out of the scrapbooking slump I seem to currently be in.

Stacy Simpson said...

Sketches save time! I get to do the fun part of picking paper and embellies and then plug them in to the sketch!

Samantha said...

Looks like a fun class! I like to use sketches b/c they tend to jump start my own creative flow.

Andrea said...

I love using sketches to make cards - or scrapbook layouts because if I have a sketch in mind... then I can start thinking about colors and accessories etc and have the whole thing planned out in my mind before I hit the craft table. So when I do finally have some time to spend there I'm not floundering - I have purpose and can actually accomplish something - LOVE IT! Thanks for the chance to win and for all of the great inspiration and joy you bring us!

Patricia said...

I love using sketches because it gives my imagination a quick jump start on what I want to do. Thanks for the chance.

Kellie Groves said...

I have taken several sketch classes and they remain my favorite type of class. I tend to pull out a sketch when I am having trouble geting started. I am always surprised that one sketch can be interpreted in so many different ways. Thanks for a chance to win!

I love to use sketches. So often they provide a jumpstart to the creative process - even if the finished product looks nothing like the sketch.

I love sketches! They allow me to have a starting point, rules on some level that I have to follow. Makes me be a creative problem solver. I feel that I am more creative and gets me to try something that I have never done before. Would love a spot in this class! Thanks for the chance!

I love to use sketches. They help me get going on my layout. I tend to over think things and it takes me forever to complete a layout. Sketches give me one less thing to over think! Thanks for the chance to win a spot in this awesome class!

I love to use sketches because it speeds up the process. Plus the sketches are always better ideas than what I would come up with.

karennarelle said...

I always use sketches as i need a place for me to start. Since design isnt my strong point, i find sketches help with that and get me on my way .

cutiephinphin said...

Sketches help me to get started especially for scrapbooking as I sometimes feel lost on the placement and the design of a layout.

Thanks for the chance to win a spot in the class.

Kelly said...

Sketches help me get it done. With two little kiddos, I don't have enough time to be creative... and just want to document our memories since there are so many of them!

I'd love to try out this Big Picture class!

Melinda said...

I love using sketches because it makes it easier and quicker for me to scrap. I don't have to waste time trying to figure out what goes where or if it looks right!

Joanie3 said...

Would help me learn to follow sketches and accomplish more in less time!! always a good thing!!

Yvonne..... said...

What an awesome class. I always use sketches! A sketch is like a recipe and all I have to do is go to my "cupboard" and pick out my ingredients. You can use the sketch as it, turn it upside down, reverse it and your results always come out fresh and new. Sketches never go out of style! I would LOVE a chance to win this class! Keeping fingers and toes crossed!

Karen said...

I started scrapbooking using BeckyHiggins sketches ... they are my "go to" tool!

Kate aka stinkydudette said...

I use sketches regularly as a starting point. Sometimes, I go off on my own, and rarely looks like the sketch. But I love that it's my "map"..

ana-mama said...

Sketches make easy work when it comes to gift albums or themed albums. Pick a handful of sketches, rotate the design 90 degrees and repeat. No need to re-invent the wheel...

Thanks for the chance!

I want to win so that I can learn all that you all have to share! Thanks!

Sketches are time saving machines! -lol!! ;)
With kids, sports, church, daycare, carpools and a household to run...why reinvent the wheel my friends?! :)

Julia said...

Sketches take out the difficult part of scrapping and just leave the fun part, playing with paper and embellishments.

Jen said...

Usually my big hang up is the design - if I use a sketch, the hard part is done for me. I can then progress through product selection, journalling, photos, etc. to a finished LO more easily. Thanks for the chance to win!

oh I love sketches and keep a file both on my computer filled with them as well as a clip board at my craft table for some of my faves to reference.... they are great to fall back on when the mojo is a bit lacking. :)

Sketches help me to get a lot accomplished without having to tax my poor brain too much. I do enjoy coming up with my own ideas or put my own spin on the sketch, but it makes things move along nicely when I'm behind on my pages!!!

justasiam said...

It would be so wonderful to win a spot in this class, as I love to use sketches for all my layouts. And the addition of 8.5 x 11 size is great...that is what I scrap!

Connie said...

I like to use sketches for the same reasons I like to try new recipes - to try something new, to have a tested set of ingredients, to try a new technique, to expand my knowledge of cooking. Sketches and recipes are both great!

Jody Green said...

You do beautiful work. I'd love the inspiration!

Betty Sue said...
