Happy Mother’s Day weekend! How can we ever begin to thank our mothers (and mother figures)? They’re the ones who raise us, teach us right from wrong and provide support every step of the way. Being a mother is possibly the toughest job in the world (and the pay isn’t great either), which is why Mother’s Day is so important — it’s the one day of the year dedicated to those who have given up so much. It can be tricky to come up with a gift for mom that holds the value that she deserves. You’ve shared so many great memories with her — why not showcase and preserve these memories with a beautiful Mother’s Day scrapbook layout! Check out this awesome sketch you can use and then see three Home Office creations using the sketch to get inspired!
Why do we love sketches so much? Is it the fact that they help break us out of a scrapboooking rut? Maybe it’s the fact that although we all see the same sketch, what we do with it varies completely depending on our taste, our style and our own creative preferences. No matter what the reason is, we love sketches, and if you love sketches too, then you’ll love today’s Weekly Sketch Round-Up! Check it out!

Have you ever heard the phrase “doing something is better than doing nothing”? It’s an important phrase to remember in all aspects of life, but it’s especially true for scrapbookers. Sometimes, we feel a lack of motivation. But, when that happens, the best way to get out of that funk is to just sit down and create something, no matter how unfinished it looks or how little you do. Still need a push in the right direction? Check out the Weekly Sketch Round-Up for some ideas to get you started!
