Do you plan your layouts?



Amazing-boy

Does it seem like I plan my layouts? Because I don't. *LOL*I usually start with a sketch from a challenge blog to aid me in the placement of the core elements.

Then I just add little bits and pieces on my desk or from my "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" stash.


How to create a supply list tutorial.

What about you? Do you plan your layouts?

Inspired by the sketch at My Mind's Eye.

Another wonderful creation! I don't usually plan other than like you I use a sketch as a starting point then go from there.

After reading the title of your blog I was readying myself to admit that I go to my craft room, twiddle my thumbs and go with the first idea that comes to mind, it is usually a paper I have been wanting to use...then I see what you had to say, LOL...Phew I am relieved, hahahaha..... Your layout is absolutely beautiful!!!!! I love the combo of papers and the big letters in boy.. I love all the embellies and that banner is amazing..lets not forget your gorgeous newphew...is that a bottle cap with the smaller image?? hugs

I totally thought you planned them out, lol. I don't plan mine either, I start with a sketch, an image and some paper and it just goes from there. This is so cute!!! Love the layout and the fabulous colors you put together.

Oh yes, I do and I always plan my layout before I start. If I don't, it will take me endless hours to finish a layout. No kidding. I love your layout! So beautiful and colorful!

Hussena said...

There goes one more misconception of mine !!! I always thought you had to plan out a LO before working on it ...but reading your post has been an eye opener :) ...As always your LO is just Gorgeous ....I love those MME papers and the different embellies you have used it all look so beautiful !!

Annette said...

so cute Yvonne.. I love that little train at the bottom...girl you are just so creative...love it

Sandie Edwards said...

Love the inspiration from the My Mind's Eye sketch, and the gorgeous elements you added to make it a 'whole'. I can never plan a layout, if I try it turns out 'nothing like it was meant to' - at first this frustrated me, now I go with the flow and like the fact. Like yourself, find bits and pieces laying about (actually I have a little box on my desk I dip into) and add. How adorable is the little fellow in the photo!

Lizzy Hill said...

Same....LOVe sketches as a starting point....that train is awesomely cute here:):):)

JulieJ said...

Great LO. I do a lot of planning in my head before I start - but that's generally because I have limited time to actually scrap.

Sharon Fritchey said...

Hi Yvonne! I love how your layout turned out - so darn cute and very creative! I usually think I have a plan, then my page turns into something else altogether! LOL!!!

Ali said...

Thank goodness for sketches, LOL Another beautiful lo and what a delightful photo :0)

Tone-Lill said...

This is Awsome Yvonne, you always manage to fill your happy LO with so much fun colourful stash like this one.
I'm like you not a great planner, often start with a sketch and the rest just come by it self.
Happy scrap and wish you a great day :)

Izzy Anderson said...

I love all the textures and layers you created. Makes for such an interesting page! Beautiful!

sandi said...

This is sooooooooooo cute! Love the 'large' title, the banner and that sweet train at the bottom.....allltogether they look fantastic!

Linda R said...

What a happy page. You know I used to do scrap-booking all the time. I have 5 books full of pages. Then kinda got burned out and switched to cards. And I never planned any of them out. I am the type that usually looks of a challenge to give me some inspiration.

Hugs~

i can't believe you don't plan your layout! it looks so well-planned as usual. How long does it take for you to complete a 12x12?
i don't normally plan my layout too... and it normally takes at least 3~5 hours to complete a page =)

chillin with Quillin said...

I havent scrapbooked in a long time ,but when I did I didnt makes scetches or planed, just sat down and tinkered around till I thought it looked good !!

Love it! No, I don't usually plan my layouts. I just keep moving things around until I like them.

lisa said...

Gorgeous Yvonne. I love how you finished off the word 'boy' with pen x

Miae said...

Most of the time I have to plan something! I wish I could just put stuff down but whether it's a sketch or colors, I usually start in my head first...!

Tracey Sabella said...

Fabulous boy page!! I do not plan most of my pages. They are works in progress. LOL! ~ Blessings, Tracey

This is a really lovely layout Yvonne! I hope you submit it!! I do plan my layouts to a certain degree. I usually start with a sketch like you, and/or a challenge in mind too, and I have some ispirational ideas pinned to a private board on Pinterest to remind me about new techniques etc that I want to try :)

Naddy said...

Beautiful LO... Love all the pretty embellishments you used here.

Keren Tamir said...
