I love sketches.

Have you checked out Becky Higgins pagemaps? They are in Creating Keepsakes magazine but there is a website full of the older sketches.

It inclues page maps for all sorts of sizes, tag maps, card maps, ect.

I printed most them off and have them in an old floppy disk case with tabs.

I also usually sketch from the magazines into a notebook to have available too.

When I have a ton of pics of the same event I make one large header across two pages and cut just enough off the top of other pages so the header shows. It is a great way to get a lot of pics done without coming up with new ideas for the same things. Happy Scrapping!!!

Thanks so much Ladies, now i just have to find the time :).

Amanda, I started out buying the scrapbooking packs and other little stickers.

sadly most of my pages look similar but ut does give a flowing look, i pretty much got a stack of coloured paper and what ever shape or size i was going to make the photo i cut the coloured paper a bit bigger and layered it. then depending on the picture i put stickers, beads with ribbon threaded through.

I hope this helps. let me know how you go.

With my kids I have pages for a big event like a trip to the zoo or christmas or birthday. Once I've run out of events and still have pictures I want to scrap I just do a generalized area and put those there. I hope this helps!

magazines are great, but Close to My Heart (as well as other catalog/consultant companies) have great paper packets with matching stamps, accessories, etc... Close to My Heart has 3 books full of layout 'templates' with instructions for cutting the paper, and the example pictures are very helpful and spur imagination!! Check into something like that if you get too stumped!!

When I need inspiration, I will either purchase a new scrapbooking magazine (or look at some that I have around the house) or browse online for layout ideas. One of the best resources, in my opinion, is
