Ultimate School Album
Got Sketch goes Back to School with the introduction of the "Ultimate School Album!" It's the “ultimate” because it covers Pre-K through 12th grade with lots of extras that can't be passed up.
If you missed this popular 5-week workshop, here's your chance to get everything that was covered -- all in an instant download format.
Hey Moms! Whether it's the beginning or end of a school year, what better time for us to get busy working on a school album? Get ahead of the class and complete your kids’ school albums now! Just add the photos, report cards, and other memorabilia later as each grade is completed! Wouldn't you like to be this organized? Let's do this before we get any more buried under the piles of school papers, photos, and artwork, and before we forget some key information. Are you game?
We're not talking about just your average school-themed pages. The goal is to have an entire school album completed, summarizing each school year from pre-school all the way up through 12th grade! That's FOURTEEN sketch-based 12x12 double-page spreads (28 pages), plus printable pdfs galore of forms and templates to give the entire album a unified look. Four main sketches will be used and cycled through the school year layouts. Oh, and let me add that each spread will feature a pocket page that will hold important academic paperwork, certificates, and other special mementos. Also, included are two additional single-page sketches for the album's title page and a graduation page to finalize the album. This means 30 total scrapbook pages in this program alone!
All the guess-work is done for you! Valerie has done all the planning to make your album personalized. Your homework right now: Just gather those class photos and favorite school memorabilia and get ready to finally document your child's momentous educational years!
The 2-page spreads will be based on our popular Got Sketch sketches - all NEW, and all double-pagers - geared towards putting together a cohesive album that will serve as a completed highlight of your child’s school years.
UPDATE: Due to popular request by some of our international friends, I have included one alternate pdf for the title page that will give you the ability to label whatever grade-level terminology your country uses. In addition, if you have Microsoft Word, you will be able to create basic circular text titles by using a document that is editable and customizable.
I was so excited about launching this class --- and I am happy to now offer it as an instant download. I have received numerous emails from folks waiting to snag this downloadable program. There no better time than now to start this huge project!
No matter what ages your kids are (or even if they're grown), it's not too late to get those stored memories out and get them organized. What a great project for grandmas and other family members, too! This program will have the inspiration and motivation you need to get those school albums finished in no time at all. Talk about a big checkmark off of the scrapbook “to do” list!
Here's what you can expect from the Ultimate School Album Download:
- SIX sketches (4 double-page sketches to use throughout the album + 2 single-page sketches) The sketches will include measurements!
- 14 double-page layout examples from pre-school to 12th grade -- that's 28 pages, designed by Valerie Salmon
- 16 Downloadable Class lesson pdfs for each grade, title page, and graduation page

- Printable pdfs galore! TWELVE pdfs to be exact. (such as grade titles, fact sheets, blank forms, journaling blocks, and others!)

All of the sketches have the flexibility to be used for other themes or events. However, please note that the printable pdfs are school-specific in theme. No other alternate themes will be provided.
Taking any past Got Sketch classes is not a pre-requisite.
Everyone is welcome, including our international friends.
This is a "Use your Stash" program. There will be no kits provided with your fee. We encourage everyone to use their existing supplies. We recommend having a Basic Tool List, your choice of 12x12 top-loading album (for each child), cardstock, patterned papers, and appropriate embellishments. It’s time to use your favorite school-themed papers and embellishments – even any previous kits you may have laying around.
