Summer of Sketches | 2019

Getting crafty and documenting your favorite memories is easier than you think! Join Kelly Noel and Lisa Truesdell, as well as their team of talented contributors, for a Traveler's-Notebook-style revamp of our popular Summer of Sketches class. Join in this summer-long session of “round robin” sketch inspiration and gain tons of new ideas to make memory keeping in your notebook fun and easy! From June through August, each week will bring you new lessons bursting with fresh sketches that provide the inspiration you need to pull out your kits and fill up your notebooks. Every Monday, students will have access to a new video and notebook layout from one of the instructors, two additional layouts from contributors, and four all-new sketches. That's a total of 48 sketches designed to help you maximize the small space available in your TN and get more photos and memories onto the page! 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! Class starts on June 3rd!

She found the online scrapbooking community in late 2004 and was totally obsessed from that time on. Kelly lives in Florida with her husband Tom and their three boys (Jackson, Brady, & Sawyer), and when she's not at one of her boys' baseball games, she's working with Studio Calico's teachers as the Education Content Coordinator.

What comes with this class

  • 6 start-to-finish videos each (12 total) from Kelly and Lisa showing how they went from sketch to finished project. Your teachers will be sharing tips and tricks for adapting sketches 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 memory keeper to another! We'll start each week's lesson with a sketch based on one teacher's work, then each contributor will work from a sketch of the project created by the person before them. 
  • 36 all new projects from Kelly, Lisa, and their contributors
  • 48 sketches - 12 sketches based on the teachers' past work, plus 36 more based on the class projects
