Summer of Sketches

Looking for some creative inspiration to get you through the summer? Join Jamie Waters and her team of talented contributors for a summer-long session of “round robin” sketch inspiration. From June to August, each week will bring you a new lesson bursting with fresh sketches that provide the ultimate starting point for any story you want to tell. Every Monday, students will have access to a new video and layout from Jamie, two additional layouts from contributors and four all new sketches. By the end of class, you’ll have access to a treasure trove of inspiration, ready for any time you need a little creative boost! 

Please note: This class originally ran in May of 2016. By enrolling now, you'll have access to all of the class material immediately and will be able to access the class message board to view previous comments. However, the message board and gallery will not be monitored by an instructor.

Jamie Waters

I took a break from scrapbooking after a very consistent ten years. After three years of my hiatus, I longed for the craft and the process. My children who were once young when I used to scrapbook are now teenagers - I have a 9-year-old, a 14-year-old, a 16-year-old and a 20-year-old. I love good food, pretty design, naps, romcoms and perfect 75 degree days.

What comes with this class

  • 12 start-to-finish videos from Jamie, showing how she went from sketch to finished layout. Jamie will be sharing tips and tricks for adapting layouts to fit the number and sizes of photos you have, and ideas for switching them up to keep your projects looking fresh, no matter how many times you use the same sketch.
  • Round robin inspiration : See how each sketch changes as it passes from one artist to another! We'll start each week's lesson with a sketch based on Jamie's work, then each scrapbooker will work from a sketch of the layout created by the person before them. 
  • 36 all new layouts from Jamie and her contributors
  • 48 sketches - 12 sketches based on Jamie's past work, plus 36 more based on the class projects.
  • A printable PDF of all of the class sketches
  • Access to a class message board and gallery, where you can share and learn with your teacher and fellow students
