Page sketches

Hi everyone! I'm totally addicted to page sketches! Sometimes I draw a blank on where to start on a page. There is this website called that you can print out monthly sketches. I have put together a binder with every months sketches in it. I'm so bad that I have a reminder on my outlook to "print out page maps" on the 1st of every month! LOL! Anyway- it's a great site and it helps to get your creativity flowing if you are stumped. You never have to follow the skecth completely. There are no rules to scrapbooking! :) Just wanted to share in case you haven't heard of them. They also have a magazine but the website is free and printable! :)

Fabulous! Thanks for that! I have printed January's and will use them for creative blocks!

I'll have to check out that site. I've never done a page layout, but am seriously behind in my kids' scrapbooks that I've resolved to make more time to scrapbook this year (amongst a couple other things), and I'm sure this will help me reach my goal!

Thanks for the tip. This sounds great! I set aside 8pm to 10pm to scrap on Tues. evenings and I plan on usinng sketches everytime. I really cranked through some pages at a retreat this way. The creating keepsakes site also lists some sketches. Their magazine is now adding 30 sketches every month.

Hi Heather,

I am an Food for Craft Independent Crafter with a company called Club Scrap. It is a membership club that sends out themed kits to its members each month. Included with each monthly kit is a set of Assembly Line Scrapbooking (ALSB) instructions. These are cutting and assembly instructions with a color visual of the completed layouts that you can use repeatedly with any paper. (Each month is different and usually includes 10-12 different layouts.) It is a method of scrapbooking without pictures. You can add your pictures later with very little cropping. A little different than most methods, but it is a quick way to get your pages completed and little waste of precious paper with the cutting instructions. Club Scrap also has a new item called the Idea Deck that is a deck of 52 cards with a two page ALSB layout on each card. Just thought you might be interested since you like the sketches. Check it out,

That's a really cool site! Had never heard of page "maps" before. Great idea! Thanks for sharing. :)
