I hate to crop my photos. I am soooo the girl who slaps down the whole 4x6 without cutting. Some of my layouts are single photo, lots are multi, and I LOVE to journal. So who has sketch books/sites using 4x6 with no cropping?

Are those with no cropping? I do mostly one page layouts now, but I think she has a couple of those books. When I checked out some of the free sketches on her site, though, a lot of them used cropped photos.

I think one of the SG books (maybe the travel one?) is mostly uncropped 4x6 photos... I don't have that one. Maybe someone who has all or most of them can chime in.

Did you follow along with Shimelle's (free) 4x6 photo love class here at 2peas?? It was sometime in the last year or two. It has 12 videos- January's was one photos, and by December, it was making a layout that included 12 4x6 photos, iirc. She also had other scrappers 'play along' so you could get other people's take on her sketch for the month.

Have you watched Shimelle's 4x6 photo love? She scraps all 4x6 with no cropping. Check them out on her Youtube channel.

I have a book called Fast Scrapboking with 4X6 Photos. It was a Creating Keepsakes publication published Leisure Arts and I ordered it online just last summer. It has a lot of 1 page inspiration. I recommend it.

I use mostly 4x6 photos. I've started using a lot of the Scrapbook Generation books. I've easily adapted sketches using all either 4x6 or 4x4 photos. Shimelle's 4x6 Photo Love is great, too, and free.

I bought an ebook that I like called Easy Scrapbook Sketches for 4x6 Photos.

It is basic, and I have found myself using it frequently.

Shimelle also has sketches on her blog and you tube for 4x6 photo layouts.

Actually all of Shimmelle's layouts usually feature 4x6 photos, check out her alter ego Glitter Girl for inspiration

I need to come back and check out some of your suggestions. I am finding that I use more and more 4X6 photos (or the digital size that comes from the online store where I get them printed). I used to create collage prints with several photos together in a single print, but it takes so much thought and time and right now I just don't have those things. If I want to scrapbook I have to use plain old regular photos.

I use Scrapbook Generation sketches and I very rarely will crop a photo. If I am doing multiple layouts of one event I will just to fit more but generally, nope. I just either add more journaling or an embellishment where a smaller photo goes.

Allison's sketch support blog is live again and she has a bunch of one pagers there too and a bunch of the two pagers have one page examples.

They do have a sketch book with one pagers also.

Hilsmom, I have been getting the Super Sketch Club kit for almost two years now and I absolutely love it!

I have books 6-7-8 and the travel book and I just went and purchased and downloaded all of the sketches at the Scrapbook Generation store that were not the "kits", those will be my next treat!

I am having a great time playing with all of my new sketches!

I found this company by happening upon The Sketch Support blog one day and then finding the monster thread here on the board about it. I have ben hooked every since!

The sketches work for both clean and simple pages which I prefer or more decorated and fancy ones which I love but it just isn't really my style.

Mebarnet, I was at a crop this weekend, and a couple of the ladies (also peas) get that kit and love it. I looked at it, and I think it really suits my style. I am going to finish reorganizing the stuff in my room over the next week or so, and I think I will be subbing in Feb. I was going to order the book when I sub, because when I checked last night the shipping was the same for the book AND the kit as it was for just the book.

Have you checked out shimelle's 4x6 love series? It's not a book but lots of inspiration. Also, glitter girl uses a lot of 4x6 prints. Not sure if this is useful, if someone has already mentioned it or perhaps you have already seen all her videos!!

You can get the ebooks too!!

If you go to either the Sketch Support blog and the Scrapbook Generation site, there are sketches you can download and print for free. That is how I started. I honestly cannot scrap without them anymore. Not that I have tired but still!!

When I go to crops, I bring my kits with me and the pages just fly together. Penny and Scoobers can vouch for me on that one!

Hilsmom -
I agree with all the others...obviously I love love love the SG kits and sketches. I have found their sketches are easily adaptable to one page sketches if needed and most of the sketches use 4x6 with minimal cropping of other photos (but many times you could use 1 4x6 in the place of 2 cropped). After SG/Sketch Support and downloading all of the free sketches (there are a bunch) I was hooked. Their books now come in regular format or a digital file that you can download and print if wanted. I now have all their "regular books" mostly in digital format since I like seperating my sketches by number of photos. THe kits are also wonderful and fit a variety of scrappy pictures. Have fun!!!

Great post - I use 4x6 without cropping for most of my pages too so having new resources is very useful!

I downloaded about $50 worth of sketches from Scrapbook Generation the other day and printed them all out and organized them in my binders yesterday. There are a ton with uncropped 4 x 6 photos.

I also purchased some sketches that showcase 5x7 and 8x10 photos which I seem to have an issue with scrap wise. I have all these school and sports and dance pics and have an issue incorporating them into my pages. Hopefully the sketches will fix that issue!

I should have counted them up to see how many there were but I am pretty sure it was about 80 sketches. Great deal in my book! Some of them come with color photos for reference and I did also download the one pagers so help me with the framing I am currently doing.
