I ordered this book right before I went on a Scrap Retreat. I LOVE IT! When scrapping for hours upon hours, I find I will get a "Creative Block" where the creative juices just stopped pumping....This book helps me get past the block and get back in the Creative Scapping Mojo!
This is one of the first Sketches for Scrapbooking books that I've purchased, and I love the concept-- it won't be the last, for sure.
The layout sketches are basic, but you can embellish them as much, or at little, as you want. The sketches give all the dimensions you need to put a scrapbook layout together, and all you need to do is choose the photos and the paper!
When I first got this book I was a little bit disappointed in it. I had expected a booklet with a spine. It is spiral bound, and the paper the sketches are printed on is marginally better than regular copy paper.
Now I appreciate that it's spiral bound because it is easy to flip the extra pages to the back and not do any damage to the book.
