Ok so this is a question I get asked a lot. How do you create all these layouts without knowing what pictures go on them? Ill be honest and tell you I create both ways. Somedays I just want to copy other peoples beautiful layouts and somedays I have a specific project to work on. Two things I have found is that I always love to get the new items in the catalog and I am prone to be a Hoarder…shh dont tell my husband! I used to be so bad about buying an extra pack of my “favorite” paper only to have a new favorite come along and never again touch my stash. SO…a few years ago I began making as many layouts as possible out of the current paper packs even if I didnt have photos. (this is a layout I created several weeks ago)
How does this work? Well the trick is to leave your photo areas a common size i.e. 4×6, 4×4, 3×3. Most of the time I leave a title off and eventually I will go back and when I have a surplus of photos or events I just start searching my stash of pre-made pages. And if I have more photos than I have places enter in one of my most favorite products—-> Flip Flaps. With all of out sizes and varieties the amount of photos is endless!
Give it a try scrap an entire paper pack with or without photos. It cuts down on your stash and helps you get caught up!
