My husband thinks I’m a little bit weird when it comes to scrapbooking. It probably has something to do with the fact that when I receive the latest CTMH idea book, I hunker down on the couch for the night and ooooh and ahhh over paper and stamps and stickers all night. And I may growl at anyone who bothers me. I’ve even been known to make everyone in the house look at some of the layouts in the book and recite “Isn’t it per-tie!?” with me.
So I just got the Fall idea book about two weeks ago, and OH MY LORD, Jeanette Lynton has created another how-to book on scrapbooking layouts. It’s called Magic, and my copy is coming to my house tomorrow. I’m so excited that I’ll probably be standing at the end of the driveway waiting for the UPS man at 3:15 pm. I might even make him look at a few layouts with me and recite “Ooooh, aren’t they per-tie!?”
Anyway, the reason I’m going on and on (and on) about this is because I’d like to ask my fellow scrapbookers a question. I adore Jeanette’s how-to books because they make creating the layouts so easy, and they are so chock-full of gorgeous ideas. Plus, the books are just so darn beautiful! I really could page through them every single day and never get bored (refer to first paragraph).
So tell me, my fellow scrappers, where do you get your layout ideas from? Online? From friends? Scrapping books, magazines, websites (be specific, please!)? I’d love to hear your comments – I’m always looking for great ideas!
