Sketch Class Highlight with Melissa Mann

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year! One of my Christmas traditions is to make a batch of my all time favorite cookie recipe: “Holiday Butter Cookies”. I started making these when I was in highschool and every year when I bake them, I always forget just how delicious they are until I pop one of them in my mouth! I found the picture I had taken last year when I made a batch for our Christmas family get-together and decided to create a layout featuring the recipe of these fabulous cookies!

I based my layout from the Bonus Sketch included in the most recent “From Sketch to Finish” class. I was honored to be a contributor to this edition that Elle’s Studio published and loved the opportunity to create another layout using one of these sketches. I have always been a fan of using sketches to create layouts and usually stick pretty close to the sketch. The only thing I modified on this sketch was to include a 4×6 journaling card above my picture to include my recipe!


Our From Sketch to Finish Vol. 2, which includes 30 sketches and 20 projects from 10 different contributors, is here to inspire you! Our class comes as a downloadable self-paced PDF file. Once you have purchased the class, you will receive a link, via email, to download the class.
