When I'm stumped for ideas on how to start a page, sketches are the first place I look for inspiration. And no one does sketches better than PageMaps! I always love how my pages evolve from these starting points. Whether the end result closely matches the sketch or just draws inspiration from its elements, I invariably end up with a design I love.
If you love sketches too then you should definitely check out PageMaps University. These classes include fantastic layouts, lots of sketches, plus instruction sheets (with dimensions & photo sizes), free cut files, and more! Last summer, I contributed to a class, and this was one of my pages:
S U P P L I E S :
The latest offering from PageMaps U is a new layout class loaded with 18 layouts, sketches, techniques and how-to's, full-color instructions, complete supply lists (including paper names!) and free die cutting files, all created by some of your favorite artists. It's four-week, self-paced, online class begins Monday, February 16. Stop by PageMaps to see all of the sneak peeks, try out a freebie class, and register for this one. It’s going to be so much fun!
I'm thrilled to again be contributing to the class with two new projects (including a two-pager that I just love!) Here's a quick sneak of each!
Today I'm offering my readers a chance to win a free spot into this first class of the year. Just leave a comment on this post and tell me what project is on your desk right now. I’ll draw a random winner on Wednesday, February 11 and post it here. Good luck!
