I don't do all my scrapbook pages digitally, but they sure are quick and easy to post online. I get all my free digital kits from www.twopeasinabucket.com.
I love to use sketches, even with a digital layout. I, of course, use Becky Higgins and I also have a spiral bound book called Layout Blueprints by Amy Elkins that I use often.
Like my card making, I am a simple scrapbooker too. I like the page to look nice, but I want to notice the pictures more than the decorations. A good source for page ideas is Scrapshare. The pages there range from super simple to artistic.
Now, get to scrappin'!
