    Default Do you ever scrap first and add photos later?

    I never have done it that way…but yesterday and today I made three layouts with photos "to be determined" LOL I have an idea of what photo I want like, do I want my son or daughter, but not specifics. I guess I was feeling the creative scrapping mojo, but not the hunt for the picture mojo! LOL

    I did once for a speed scrap, as I was at work and didn't have any photos. ( I bought a kit that day, LOL)
    i do have to think a page thru photos plus the kit.

    I actually used to scrap that way all the time, before I found out that most others do the opposite. I think its easier to scrap with photos already placed, but its good for creative juices to mix things up from time to time.

    Oh, yeah, about a third of the time. It's because the bulk of my photos are on a desktop computer, but I like to scrap on my laptop.

    I do sometimes when I have a specific kit in mind and then have trouble finding the pictures I thought I had or just pictures for that specific kit. Sometimes a kit just screams YOU MUST USE ME!!! lol

    I hardly ever do mostly because I like to have the picture there so that I know everything is exactly the way I want it. The few times I have done it, once I placed the picture(s) in, I ended up rearranging things. Saves me time to just put the picture there to begin with!

    Oh yes, think that´s 50/50 in my case. Sometimes I wanna scrap the kit and don´t have the "perfect" photo - and sometimes I remember a special photo I wanna use, but I cannot find it. My photos are sorted by month, and sometimes I don´t know when I took it

    Yes, I normally do not scrap this way and I got three layouts inane realized I was on a roll with no photos, LOL But I knew I could plop them in and just didn't feel like searching through them all at the moment.

    Yeah, I guess most often I know the photos I'm going to use, I pick a template and start doing the fun "decorating" part first. Then I got and weed photos and plop them in, so its sort of like scrapping w/o photos! ;)

    But I'm changing up the way I scrap, I'm sorting through an entire month's worth of photos and weeding out photos and grouping them by the event or type of page I'm scrapping. Then I can label the folder (which is already in a folder called Feb 2012) "Valentines_4) then I know I need to make a valentine's type LO with 4 photos on it.
