I love sketches! They are great when you're stuck but want to scrap.

I've printed up all the ones Pagemaps has on their website. lol. I agree with Becky, they're great when you're stuck, and for a while I was so braindead I couldn't scrap without them. But I think I'm starting to get out of that a little, so yay for getting creativity back!

Once upon a time about a decade ago i wouldn't even use store bought embellies because I didn't want anyones Lay Outs to look like mine. Now I am all about cheap fast adn easy and Sketches really do it for me. When I used to come up with everything origonal it would take me HOURS to create a page. Now I use sketches are scraplift exclusively and I can get a page done in 1 hour or less.

Life is full of seasons and this seans for me is about babies and their needs so i am glad to just eak out a tiny bit of time in the scraproom and if I prescrap (pick out pictures, sketch adn paper) then i can get things done quickly!

This works for me because I like to scrap freash picture even a picture a month old is not as much fun as scrapping a picture taken TODAY!

I love sketches. For my first book, I used no sketches and I swear every page looked the same. I started using sketches when I got back into it in 2008 and that's the only way to go. I don't understand how people have so many new ideas. It doesn't usually really look like the sketch in the end, but it's a start. I have a huge binder that I print and put all my sketches in.

i don't really use sketches. I might glance at them for some inspriation or pick up something from them here and there. but i usually just wing it.
I do like to look at galleries like on scrapbooks etc or just google images and get inspriation and ideas from peoples pages.

I love mine, and refer to them often. Most of the time, my pages don't turn out like them, but they are a great start to get my brain working. And I am so much faster now in making the pages too.

I didn't know about sketches until I joined this board. And now I am totally hooked!! I can get pages done soooooo much faster now. I usually just use the sketch as a starting point - my pages never turn out exactly like the sketch. I will still do some pages without - they just take me longer.
