Do you plan pages ahead of time, like pick out pictures, paper, embellishments, etc and put them away for later?
If not, is it something you would be interested in doing?
I like to plan pages on my Gypsy/draw them out in my page planning binder. I then pick out the pics and paper and put them in a page planning folder that is labeled with a number that corresponds to the sketch in my page planning binder (so I can remember what I was going to do with all that stuff). Makes it so much easier to scrap with my mom (who lives 3 hours away) when I don't have to take all of my scrappy stuff. I can just grab my planned pages, my gypsy and my page planning binder and go. I am also able to kick out 4 or more pages pretty quickly that way.
NNot really. Sometimes an idea for a page pops into my head and I remember it or write it down or sketch it out for later. But I very rarely go so far as choosing all the papers ahead of time. Once I've done that I may as well just put the page together.
I always start with a page sketch usually drawn by someone else. Then I pick out pictures and paper and just assemble. Once uponj a time everythong i did was origonal but then i need to get my pages done faster than that...
I will sometimes, usually when I'm preparing for a LOAD or a crop. Oftentimes though, I usually pick when I sit down which does take so long. I would probably be more efficient if I pre-planned more often.
