I picked this up at the grocery store the other day & I thought I'd share my two cents with you. I'm a huge fan of scraplifting. Why try to re-invent the wheel for each and every layout? Sometimes it is easier to play off of someone else's idea. If you're an avid scraplifter or a fan of sketches, you'll love this book/mag.
This special issue of Better Homes & Gardens' Scrapbooks Etc. offers over 133 sketches with several variations on each. Their original sketch has an original layout to go with it. Several different scrappers then provide their take on that original layout, so you can see numerous ways to run with it. I particularly loved seeing how they take a one page layout and "stretch" it into a two page layout.
I judge a good scrapbooking magazine by how many pages I tear out of it (I keep the ideas in a binder and refer to it later). Ladies, I tore 34 pages out of this 144 page mag! That's almost 1/4 of the pages!
The magazine retails for $12.95, but there is a 1 year subscription to Ladies Home Journal included in the price. If you opt out of the subscription, you can return the card for a $6.00 refund. That's worth it!
Go get yourself the new BH&G Page Planner. You'll love it!
