I wanted to do something that would help better organize these pages, and I decided on the following:
I went out and bought a little notebook thing from walmart. I went through all my magazines and I cut out everything that inspired me. When I did this, I was so happy because you get rid of all the pointless advertisements and you just have what inspires you. I tore out all the sketches that come with the magazines. I put them in my little book of sketches.
I have all my inspiration right at my fingertips. Now, I don't feel so overwhelmed with magazines and trying to find that layout to lift or technique that I wanted to try.
You can end up putting these sketches, layouts and tips anywhere, such as a 3 ringed binder.
When you are going through the layouts, most scrapbooks have neat, large fonts. This is a plus, because you can not only collect the LO's, but also cut the letters you think are cute for future use!
