As part of our Simple Tip Saturday series this year, I’m inviting fresh voices into the mix. Today we’re hearing from Simple Scrapper team member Aimee Maddern with her simple tip.
What is one way you simplify scrapbooking?
Using sketches, like the ones in the Simple Scrapper membership.
What problem does it solve for you?
Lately I have been a little to burnt out to scrapbook. Life has been going non-stop for sometime now and I just have the creative energy that I use to. I see all the new supplies and want to use them, but my creative juices have gone on vacation.
Why do you think it works so well?
When I see a sketch that intrigues me I want to play with it. I want to see what I can do with it. Just last week I found a sketch that used triangles. It looked fun and interesting, and it was. I like to find sketches that challenge me. I’m also drawn to large photo sketches.
How can others get started with it?
Find a sketch that speaks to you and flips the creative switch – or find one that challenges you. Remember you can follow a sketch to the letter or tweak it a little bit to fit your scrapbooking style.
Simple Tip Saturdays are for sharing easy ideas to grab and run.
Awesome tips! I’ve been using sketches and templates it seems forever……and really have no problem re-using the same ones because they’re flexible. You can rotate, flip, mirror image your templates as well as turn off some layers or even combine layers with another template. You can create templates from your sketches, to have them ready to use for your layouts. Sketches and templates provide us with tons of inspiration!
