Join Kelly Purkey in another installment of her popular Sketchbook class! Sketchbook 4 is a four week class filled with fresh sketches, easy instructions, beautiful examples, and lots of fun. This class is designed to be used at any time and over + over again when you need inspiration.
Sketchbook is different from any other sketch class out there because Kelly and the contributors offer design tips and detailed explanation of what makes a page work. It's more than sketches - they’ll deliver valuable pointers for creating great layouts.

By the end of the class, you'll have a complete sketchbook of 12 original sketches, 38 layouts, and an ADDITIONAL 38 sketches based on those creative pages. All the examples are brand new layouts, exclusive to this class... you won't see them anywhere else! You will be receiving an example layout from Kelly for each of the sketches, along with two example layouts from a Studio Calico Design Team member and some of your favorite SC Guest Designers.

I have a spot in the class to give away! Please leave a comment and tell me what are your favorite types of paper crafting classes you've taken, or what kind of classes you are most interested in?

I'd be interested in a more extensive (in other words-not just getting started) Silhouette Class. ;)
Thanks for the chance to win!

I took a class by Suzie Ratto (back in the day) on Creative Lettering and it was a great class because she had a great manner of teaching. I've also taken classes on paste embossing that I really enjoyeed.
I like taking classes where I learn a new technique, not just get a packet of pre-made items to put together. I can do that at home. There are so many techniques that I don't know how to do and would love to learn@!

I love technique classes the most!

Sherry Eckblad said...

First I have to say I love your blog header. I don't think I ever noticed it before.

Oh this class sounds like exactly something I need to take. i love sketches but really need to learn all the ins and outs of them and how to create my own look.

Sharyn said...

I've seen this class mentioned before and it definitely appeals to me. I love classes that talk about structure or design tips, and I love classes that inspire me to get a whole lot of pages completed!

cutiephinphin said...

I took Sketchpad with Kelly and it was really inspiring to see how different designers work with the sketches.

Sketchbook is different as it has interactive and forum session. I believe it'll be even more inspiring to see the takes of the sketches from the other members in the class.

Well I'm still a newbie at scrapbooking so I'm currently absorbing techniques and tips to know my style and to scrap more efficiently so any of the scrapbook classes would be helpful.

Thanks for the chance to win.

susan said...

This is the inspiration I need! My fingers are crossed :)

Jennifer said...

Ilove and use sketches often. I'd like to take a class on making different kinds of flowers.

cassie said...

I just took Clean and Simple Card class with Kristina Werner and am now taking Creative Chemistry with Tim Holtz. I would like a card class with techniques.

Margie said...

I took Shimelle's Pretty Paper Party, and I loved it! Favorite class so far!

Myoriah said...

Although I haven't done a scrapbook yet I would love to get design tips. I'm sure many of the ideas presented could be used on cards. Who knows it might even inspire me to dig out the photos and start scrapping.

Belinda Langner said...

I love classes that inspire and get me crafting! Thanks for the chance to win!

Jen said...

I took Debee Ruiz Lovely class and it was really inspiring. Classes make you think and stretch your own style. It refreshes you as an artist. Thanks for the chance to win! Hugs!

Little Pink Bike said...

I really struggle with scrapbooking. A class with the fabulous Kelly Purkey might just get me jump-started. Thanks for a chance to win a spot!

angel1990 said...

I missed the monthly round up class & really hope to see another one offered!! This concept seems so doable for me!!

pattylt said...

What an interesting concept for classes! Just what I would love. Is this for cardmaking or scrapbooking (I do both)? Will it work for either? Luv KP's stuff.

Lydia said...

I would love to win this class. Thanksk for this chance.

Nilsa said...

I have a hard time designing my pages where to put pictures and embellishments! This class sounds like fun and inspiring! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Melissa said...

I love any kind of technique classes! Thanks for the chance to win.

Miriam Prantner said...

This class sounds great! Thanks for the chance to win!

Karen said...

I would love to win a spot in this class! I'm finally back to scrapbooking regularly and could use some new inspiration!

Alex Design said...

I find this opportunity amazing! I would love to win very much.

TenSGal said...

Ooooohhhh....thanks for the chance to win! I'd love to learn some new "how to spiff your pages up" techniques...cute new embellishments to hand make, new ways to use supplies on hand, ways to incorporate stamping into scrapbooking, etc.
Basically I just want a "How to Copy Everything Danielle Flanders Does" Class. That would work for me. ;)

Susan

Kellie Groves said...

Thanks for a chance to win a spot in Kelly's upcoming Sketchbook 4 Class. I would love to take a Silhouette class...how to get the most out of it.

Patricia said...

My favorite type of papercrafting classes have been some I've taken by Doris Sanders over Masterful Scrapbook Design. Thanks so much for the chance at this one - it sounds great!

The Mize of Texas said...

I've only taken online classes. My LSS is very far away:) I would love to some basic Copic instruction online.

Rebecca Ednie said...

I loved Jennifer McGuires Inspiration Showcase class and IMHO it was perfect. Lots of great techniques combined with several takes on how to use them. So theory and practice combined. Which is what this class sounds like so I am eager to join! Especially since I haven't scrapped in ages and I have a brand new baby to scrap for.

Linda said...

This looks like a fabulous class! Thanks for the chance!

bessie said...

I would love a spot in the class. Taking a tim Holtz class now that is just choc full of techniques.

Pendra said...

I think this sounds like an amazing class. I would love to take any class that shows you techniques you can use over and over and inspiration to change it up! Thanks for the opportunity!

Carol Mc said...

Right now I'm taking the online class with Tim Holtz, it would have to be my favorite so far. Or maybe it was the classes I took with Wendy Vechhi. No two classes are the same, so it's hard to pic a fave. Thanks for the chance to win.

Velvet said...

I'm taking a mixed media class starting tomorrow to make an art journal, but I am really happy it is focused on techniques. I'm loving Tim's class, but my favorite class I've already finished was Jennifer McGuire's Inspiration Showcase online class because it also focused on techniques, which is my favorite thing to learn!

sophie said...

I would love to take this class!! I am so in need of inspiration right now!!!thank you for the chance!

Dulce Silva said...

oooh, any chance to you pick me! I so need to do this class! ;)

Kate aka stinkydudette said...

I love classes based on sketches and techniques. I've taken KP's class before, and know that this will be an awesome one!! Thanks for the chance to win!

Karen said...

I would love to learn why some layouts work and others don't. I love learning techniques and how to use the products I have or why I need them (don't usually need much persuasion that I need more stuff though). I am loving Tim's class and learning so much at the moment.

Maria Therese said...

My favourite must be sketch classes as they give the room to make the layout your own, but I'd also love to take a class learning neat techniques to embellish layouts and cards, would love to win a spot in this class ♥

Rebecca said...

Thank you so much for the chance to win Kelly's class - I love her's! My favorite kind of classes are ones that encourage me to use what I have. I also love technique driven classes - I love to learn new things!

Kathy Martin said...

I would really enjoy taking Kelly's class...thanks for the chance!

andie librandi. said...

thanks for the chance to win a spot! i took 2 studio calico classes at cku in louisville last year and they were great! miss kp herself was the teacher! :)

Erin and Billy said...

I have been taking 'online card classes' with Kristina Werner, but would love to get more details and start doing my own sketches. I usually start a LO with only a semblance of an idea in my mind.

Sheri said...

I've just started taking classes, starting with the last Trues Scrap, (AMAZING!), and one by Latrice Murphy on technique. I am now hooked on classes.

debbie said...

i am interested in taking this class because i am at a stand still in my scrapbooking skills and am hoping that sketches will help me out. thanks for the chance.

Samantha said...

Studio Calico classes are the only ones Ive ever taken. I am so excited for this one, and would love to win a spot!

Jen said...

I took a great class at Scrapfest from Maya Road, we made a mini & they were super generous with our supply kits, enough to make the mini & then some. Like making minis in a class, but I really think sketchbook would be a great class for making lots of great layouts! Thanks for the chance to win.

Donna said...

this is sure to be a great class. thanks for the chance

I'm in such a funk with my scrapbooking. I'm ready for some inspiration to make me want to dive in again!

Hey Dani,
I like classes that you learn fun new techniques. I'd love to learn more about stamping on my pages, so that's the kind of class I'd most like to see.

Jette Gad said...

I have a feeling this is not a class to miss.. I have yet to try a sketchclass but everyone who has done one speaks so good about it... would love to try one... thanks for the chance...

Theresa said...

I love sketches. my favorite classes are project based, lots of examples, and at your own pace. I have a hard time keeping up with time lines. =)

jeffandjess said...

I have loved the classes i've taken at various CKCs, including a few studio calico ones!

mrsjrcrobins said...

I enjoy classes that share techniques. I have paid for classess before not your site where the classes ended up being an email that didn't last 3 minutes......and no instructions I am excited about the SKETCH class if I win I can spend extra on supplies.....

Marie-Eve said...

I have never taken online classes so I would love to take this one! Thanks for the chance to win

Caroline said...

thanks so much for this chance :)

GVtexas said...

Love the giveaway !

Paulette Still said...

I go to a monthly Stampin up class with my local demonstrator, the other ladies are a lot of fun. I do love video tutorials where the tutor tells about their thought process rather than playing music with subtitles of what they are doing. Thanks for a chance to win a spot in class.

ColoradoCropper said...

I took one of her classes and it was awesome. I still refer to those sketches! Thanks for the chance to win!

Tinkerbeth said...

I am so hoping to win a spot in this class! Thanks for a chance! My favorite types of classes are the ones that involve plenty of video instruction, such as those at Online Card Classes by Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Werner. I absolutely loved the Stretch your Kit Class over at SC. That was the first "scrapbook" class I have taken—all the rest have been "card" classes. Planning to take Kerry Bradford's Sihouette class, too.

zgagi said...

Thanks for the chance to win a spot in Kelly's class. I took it last year and it was great.

Would love a class on making full use of the Cameo! :)

Thanks for a chance to win a spot in the class. I really liked taking classes teaching new techniques or using sketches. When I start a new LO I ususally start with a sketch...love sketches:)

Mernin said...

I love KP's sketchbook. I've done the past two. It's great to get th sketch and see a few different takes on it.

Rachel said...

I love classes that focus on one product-I took one from BPC where each week focused on one thing-using buttons, using diecuts, etc.-was a great way to use up my stash!

Linda said...

I love technique classes!

Beth said...

Love sketch classes!

Keianna said...

Honestly, I love sketch classes. I get the most layouts done during them and I love the inspiration. I have also taken a lot of PS classes and enjoy learning more about the system. Thanks for a chance to win.

A spot in Kelly's class would make me a very happy girl!

Christie said...

My fav kind of class are definitely sketch classes.....as they can be uswd over and over again!
Thanks for the chance.

Nitasha said...

I love classes that teach how to stretch supplies or use them in a new or inventive way! Also like classes that teach techniques that can be applied to a variety of different projects! The Sketchbook class sounds fun and just what I need to start using up my SC kits instead of hoarding them!

Liv said...

I've only ever taken one scrapbooking class. I'm intrigued by sketch classes because I've never done a layout from a sketch before. I'm wondering if it might make me a bit quicker! lol.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Kimberly said...

I would love to take this class as I have soo many SC kits to use up!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

Laci J said...

I would love any mini album classes, and anything with lots of videos & tutorials... I'd gladly pay for a class if I knew I was learning new things.

Ash Kay said...

I've never taken a single scrapping class, online or otherwise! I really would like to, the more I look into them, the more intrigued I am. Thanks for the opportunity to win a spot, I think Kelly's class may be the best to start with!

Cheryl Leong said...

I loved a series of Tim Holtz classes that I took - I learned all different distress and alcohol ink techniques, I also liked a card and layout inspiration class I took! Thanks for the chance Dani!

Thanks so much for the chance to win!

Scrapidea said...

My favorite class is Happy Little Moments with Maggie Holmes, such inspiration fun in a same class, just LOVE it!
Thanks for the chance to win!

Magdalena said...

I've only taken one class before - Amy's Stretch your kit class. I'm most interested in learning about how to think when placing things on my layout. A sketch class is great!

Jen said...

I haven't really taken many paper crafting classes - most of the classes I've taken have been more artsy types of classes - art journaling, canvas art, that sort of thing. I really do need some help in my scrapbooking though!!

justasiam said...

I have taken a number of different classes but most of them have been to enhance my knowledge of my PSE and digital templates, even though I am predominantly a paper scrapper. Loved the font and typography classes the most, also took Kristina's summer card camp so I guess that qualifies under paper crafting!

Jill said...

I love classes that help you be you... so something that teaches you a principle or a concept... or even a technique that you can add to your go to style. I don't want to just do what someone else is doing, but improve on me! Thanks for the chance.

AllyW said...

I love kelly and would love to win a spot in her class! I took a mini album class by Rahel Menig and loved it but with a sketch class, i could use the sketches over and over. More bang for my buck! haha

Sabrina said...

Mini album classes are definitely my fave! Been attending so many of them

Agus :) said...
