Last month, Tracie Claiborne and I launched our first collaborative class, Ready, Sketch, Go! As you can probably guess from the title, it is a class all about sketches. Here's what people are saying about the class:
"I have taken dozens and dozens of scrapbooking classes over the years. I’ve never taken a class that has as such quality content as well as a huge volume of content as I’ve found in Ready, Sketch Go. This class is jam packed with fantastic sketches and not just one or two ideas for each sketch but many ideas for each sketch. I love that Tracie and Jen explain their process as well as explain why they have chosen the product or design element with each layout. Another thing that makes this class fabulous is the wide variety of sketch styles, as in they provide sketches with varying numbers of photos, journaling space, titles, and embellishment areas. There is a sketch for any type of scrapbook layout you want to create in this class. The videos in this class make it well worth the price but in addition to the videos They provide a bonus audio portion to the class as well as a massive PDF that you can print and use as a reference guide right at your desk. Thank you, Jen and Tracie for such fabulous class that has quickly made it’s way to the top of my favorite scrapbooking classes list." - Becki Adams
When I signed up for this class, I liked that it would include a pdf I could print out and take with me or just to browse through. What I didn't expect, was to love the videos that Tracie and Jen put out, then being so inspired to get creating right away! The sketches have really made my layouts come together quickly and easily, while still enjoying the process. I'm finding this class to be one of my most used classes ever, and I can definitely see myself going back to it all the time. I highly recommend this invaluable class! - Emily Muto
"I just finished the course and I can honestly say I've never had more fun with an online scrapbooking course ever. I can totally recommend this!! Beyond the enormous amount of class content (15 sketches, 2 videos of instruction on two unique takes for each sketch, a beautiful set of cut files, the class gallery, etc.. ) you get actual scrapbooking instruction on techniques. So many courses out there today have you follow a recipe to make a particular layout. The training Crafty Jen Schow and Tracie Claiborne give you in this course will help you in all your future scrapbooking. You learn how to be inspired by sketches to make them your own. You learn about embellishments, layering, colors, products and more. I had a blast. I learned a lot. I made 15 layouts I am proud of and I am enjoying seeing what the other students are coming up with. I am so happy to hear there will be future courses. I will be among the first to sign up." -Patti Wnek
"I am absolutely loving this class. I watch a video and then can't wait to grab my supplies and get to the sketch. I used to look at a sketch and not know where to start. This class has got me past that. I love seeing everyone's interpretation of the sketch as well. I would love to see another series like this. It's even worth the US exchange LOL." - Laura Laforest
"I have bought a lot of classes over time and I have to say this has been the best. I found myself getting stale. So many of my pages looked similar and I was getting bored with the same approach. I have been interested in using sketches but just looking at a sketch didn't inspire me because I didn't know what to do with it. This class has given me inspiration to go on for awhile. Having two teachers showed variations on how to approach a sketch and both teachers have been awesome. The sketches have ranged from simple to more complicated so I have ideas for quick pages and ones I want to spend more time on. There has been practical advice on choosing colors, arranging embellishments and so much more. Can you tell I loved it yet? This is a class that will continue to inspire for a long time. Thanks!" - Kathy RoheThese reviews are very humbling and we are so glad that people are loving Ready, Sketch, Go!
