College Bound - Allison Davis Class Review

I know a few of you were wondering if the Allison Davis 6x6 paper pad class was worth it. In my honest opinion, yes!

First, let me say that I am NOT affiliated to them in any way. I just happened to see this class and wanted to give it a try. I own quite a few paper pads and I wanted to see if I could get my money's worth out of them. The class contains 11 double page sketches, plus samples. I downloaded the whole class handout as is to put in my online class binder. I also printed out just the sketches to go in my sketch binder. Yes, I have a lot of binders.

The layout below was created using one of the sketches from this class. As you can see, I only used one side of the sketch. I scrap mostly one page layouts and most all of her sketches from this month are conducive to turning into one pagers, which I love. I followed the sketch exactly as it is, even down to the stitching, so that you can get a feel for her layouts.


Like I said before, this is just my opinion of this class. If you were on the fence about getting this one, I hope this helps you a bit.

Thanks for visiting!
