Pin It I absolutely love seeing other people's scrapbooking creations. I love looking at blogs, reading magazines and books, and searching for other great ideas. When it comes to making my own layouts, though, I generally wait for some sort of inspiration before beginning. I may borrow others' techniques or ideas, but I very rarely scraplift. Why? I never have the right size pictures!! I almost always print up pictures in 4x6 and often they are already closeups, so I don't have room to crop them down.
