Need ideas for using small scrapbooking bits and scraps, AND a jumping off point for layouts?
Here’s why you don’t need to use up time and space (including digital space) gathering, collecting, and searching for sketches. All you need are a few basic hidden “structures” in your mind, which will lead to unique pages every single time.
This works for any timeless style or new trend. These few structures are so simple to remember they don’t need to be sketched.
This is how I come up with my Flexible Templates. And the reason I don’t make new flexible template videos as often anymore is because I really only use a few basic ideas for how I lay out a page.
I use these same ideas over and over again, but you would never guess that by looking at the pages.
The key is to have an underlying hidden structure — a shape. This shape gives you a very general idea of where you can place things on a page to create a balanced look. There’s all kinds of room for creativity and individuality from that one shape and it’s so simple and easy because the shape guides your placement.
I wanted to demonstrate this so I made a video where I take one of my Flexible Templates, which I shared over a year ago, and use it to make three pages in an updated style using scraps and and small pieces.
Do you want help with small scraps? Do you wonder what you can do with all those small pieces so common in today’s newest product collections and kits? Each of the three pages is made completely with cardstock and lots of those little bits and scraps.
But the cool thing is you’ll get to see how this works whether you’re using small scraps or big pieces of paper, too. No matter what products you have or what style you like, you could scrap a lifetime of pages off this one simple concept.
