Becky graciously answered a few questions for us.
1.How do you organize your layouts and cards?
Cards are a bit easier to store and I keep them in an oversized recipe box, separated into categories. For me, organization is all about finding the time, something I seem to seriously lack these days!
2.Do you follow a schedule for creating? Is there a time during the day you prefer?
Since I work full-time for BasicGrey, my creating schedule is pretty much limited to booth work twice a year. But when I have time to create for myself, early mornings are my best time.
3.What is your process?
I start out by selecting my photos and writing my journaling. I think these two components are the most important and essential parts of a layout. Then I select or create a sketch that works with the photos and start choosing papers and embellishments. After that, the layout comes together pretty quickly.
Thank you so much Becky, for honoring us :)
