  9. I like sketches because they help to jump start my layouts. I used to spend ALOT of time just trying to figure out the placement of my photos. With sketches, I can get down to the fun part of selecting paper and embellishments!

  12. I love sketches! They help me work outside of my comfort zone. I used to space my pictures out all over the 12x12 page, and sketches really helped me to see how cute it was to cluster my pictures so I had more space to embellish!

  17. I use sketches all the time. I don't have alot of time to scrapbook and I find with sketches I can grab a few pictures, grab a sketch and get started almost immediately instead of trying to decide how big the pics should be or how to arrange them etc.

  18. using sketches are like decorating - if everything balances then you are free to be creative with the colors and prints and embellishments and not have to worry about the basic structure (because unless you are an architect that ain't the fun part). (signed up for the newsletter)

  19. Sounds like a great deal. I use my pagemaps book as well as the site especially when I'm needing some type of inspiration. I even like to turn the sketches all around and use them.

  20. Sketches are great for inspiration. They can be used again and again and the projects can all look different from each other, they're very versatile.

  22. I've been using a lot of sketches recently to 1. jump in on some challenges that definitely keep me moving and 2. to remove one layer of complexity from my projects. I still do quite a bit from scratch but sketches have been a fun addition to my arsenal.

  23. I love that your sketches make me scrap more often. When i have such a great jumping point the rest of the page just flies together! Thanks for the inspiration and sharing of creativity :)

  24. I almost always use one of the sketches that I have collected in every layout; it provides the basic "skeleton" which frees me up to focus on the other fun details that make a page pop!

  25. I love sketches for the jumping off point. The hard design work is done or it provides the inspiration I need to come up with my own modification. And using sketches regularly have made my own designs better when I do decide to do it on my own! Thanks for the giveaway!

  28. When I first started scrapping, I never used sketches. I started using them when I started blogging a year ago, and I am addicted now. It makes it so easy to do a great looking layout! Thanks!! :-)

  29. A blank page can seem so overwhelming and a blank page can't be edited - a sketch takes away all the stress and leaves only the joy of scrapping. Thanks for the chance to win such a great prize.

  30. I love using your sketches. A sketch makes my layouts 100% better, I just have to find papers and embellies that work with the sketch and my photos. Using your sketches helps me with the balance of the page and the rule of 3's.

  31. I love using sketches because it helps me set the mood for my creation. I can either go all out with embellishments or keep it really clean and simple.

    Thanks for the chance at this marvelous prize.

  32. Sketches are easy to follow as all proportions are already thought out for you. What I particularly like in your sketches are the little extra ideas regarding embellishments, always up to date with latest fashions, easy to follow. Well done!

  33. I love using sketches to jumpstart layouts. There are times I just am staring at a bunch of pictures and have no idea which direction I want to take them. I always know that a sketch will lead me in a great direction. Having PageMaps right at my fingertips online makes my scrap time flow smoothly.

  34. Oh let me count the ways.....I love PageMaps sketches.....it takes a ton of the pressure off to be "originally" creative with every layout (especially when you are catching up from 2001)!!!

  35. Sketches help me complete layouts faster and keep focused.

  36. I am a perfectionist and I already have lots of trouble picking papers to get started with so using a sketch gives me one less thing to worry about! Even if the paper choices aren't the best I know that my layout will at least be balanced and well laid out.
