I’m sure by now most of you have tried using sketches to boost your creativity, get your scrap mojo back, or cure scrapper’s block.  I love sketches!  Links to some of the web sites I have found to be full of great sketch ideas are at the end of this post. 

Sometimes, you may start out with a sketch and your layout in the end will look either exactly like it or nothing at all like what you started with.  Either way is just fine because the sketch did what it’s supposed to: help you create a layout. 

Here are some layouts I’ve created using sketches.  You can click on them for a larger view.


This is my son Jake all dressed up for Easter.


My sister and me in some very itchy evening gowns.  I’m itchy just thinking about them!


My grandmother, 85 years old this year, who played guard on her high school team.

This is one of my favorite layouts.


A sketch from the Basic Grey Newsletter.  I cut a circle out of a box for the journaling.


A round sketch from PageMaps.  It was my first time trying to scan, crop, and stitch a round layout so the edges look rough, but really an old record album helps to cut a perfect 12 inch circle!

YAYA Princess Blog (This lady is a fellow TallyScrapper.  If you have not checked out this one-of-a-kind web store and scrapping community you are really missing out!)

The layouts “HoopSkirts” and “Nicknames” were both challenge winners on TallyScrapper! 

Let me know if you use sketches!  Do you find them helpful?  What sketch sites to you visit?
