    • Love Becky Sketches?

      I love Becky's sketches books. Whenever I am in a rut I can look through these books and find something to do. This particular book I do really like because it is smaller than the other two and is hardback and will last longer. The books is tabbed so you can find layouts with a certain amount of picutres on them as Becky did in her previous books. I really like the new layouts that are in the boook as well. It seems to me there should be more sketches in the book if it really contains all of Becky's sketches, but there are well over 150 sketches so I just might be wrong.

    • LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

      I LOVE this book! I have both of her other books, Volume 1 & Volume 2, but I love this one as well! It's nice to have all of the sketches in the same book, and also nice to have even more examples of how other people have interpreted the sketch. I use this book SO MUCH! I love Becky's Sketches in the magazine and it's so convenient to have them all in a book to reference.

    • Becky Rocks!!!

      I was absolutely thrilled when my sketches book came in the mail! I already had Becky's first and second sketchbook, but what made me want this one was the fact that it has sketches from both of these previous books with NEW ideas and Becky has added brand new sketches to this super cute book. This size is awesome for taking along to a crop. You'll love it!

    • Can't get enough!

      I can't get enough of Becky's sketches and this book doesn't disappoint! I like that she has the sketch itself and then a sample layout to go with it. I've scrap-lifted so many already.

    • Lots of good ideas

      This is the only one of the Becky Higgins' sketch books that I own and I love it. I was a bit skeptical about getting it and actually didn't even crack the cover for a few days. However, the first time I got in a rut, I yanked it out and found just the right sketch to help me out. I love how the pages are tabbed and sorted by the number of pictures used. In addition to the sketches and examples, she provides little helpful "notes" at the bottom which give some suggestions and hints on ways to improvise on her sketches and/or improve your page. I love the size of this book, too, because it's small enough to haul to a crop and to store in a shallow drawer. The down side to the size is that it means the text and photos are small, too. I like that it's spiral bound so it stays open to the sketch I am referencing, but the spiral and hardback also mean it's not the lightest of books. I don't think this is a big deal, though, because the content far outweighs that little drawback. I have since referenced it several times. For me, her sketches give me inspiration and a starting point for the page. Mine rarely end up looking like the sketch, but that's okay. I use the book for inspiration and it works great! Love it!

    • Good to have if you love Becky Higgins' sketches

      I love Becky Higgins' sketches and wanted this book since it has all of her sketches in one place. (I waited and didn't buy the two creative sketches special issues). I like that fact that is is organized by the number of photos, with layouts showing for each sketch. I actually don't like how small it is, and how it is spiral bound. (Seems overpriced for such a book.) The sketches themselves are pretty small, with the focus being more on the layouts themselves. Overall I like the book, I just wish it was bigger and better made for the price. If you like Becky Higgins' sketches, it is a great resource to have.

      Beautiful Presentation, Disappointing Details

      I love and have used Becky Higgins Sketches for years. I have both of her previous sketch books and was excited for this one to come out so I could see fresh ideas using the older sketches.

      The book has some great points. It is well organized into sections based on the number of photos in a layout. The small, compact size makes it easy to carry without sacrificing content- the sketches and example layouts are plenty big enough for me to read. I also like that it has a spiral binding in addition to the hard binding, allowing it to lay flat on a table or desk.

      It also has some bad points. While the layouts are all new for this book, they seem very "plain" at times. I realized that Becky did them all herself for this book, but some of them do look rather rushed. Also, and this is the biggest gripe I have with the book, it does not include photo size information for most of the sketches. Through the years, Becky's sketches in CK magazine have evolved from not having size information to including it, and I was hoping that size information would be added to all the sketches for this book. It seems that this detail would not have taken much time and would have tremendously added to the book's value.

      Overall, I do like this book, but if you already have Becky's previous two books it doesn't really add anything new.

    • Huge fan

      I am a huge fan of Becky's layouts. I really love the sketches and the artwork in this book. I only have one complaint with this product and that is that picture sizes were not included in the layout ideas. It is really hard to recreate the layouts when you are guessing at picture sizes.

      Slightly disappointed

      The idea is great but there was only one sketch per product. Wish there had been more. What was there, however was excellent.
