I know quite a few people that sort of doodle the layout before they make it but I've mainly gone "hm how does this look" and just moved everything around until I like it

I've only recently began to understand 'layouts' of pages and such. But I wanted to ask.

Is drawing it out easier? Is there any websites that show layouts for pages like this?

Layouts that you can download and look at are called "templates". just toss it into google, their everywhere.

Personaly, I prefer the "move it around and add shit till it looks cool" method. It just feels more..organic..more personal.

I'd rather swing on the moon than a star.

I have a few scrapbooking layout guide books and every once in a while I'll buy a scrapbooking magazine, but I, too, prefer the "let's see what I can do" style. I'll also check out stuff that other people have done and if I like their designs, I'll re-construct it in my own book. 

Some people rely on layout books more than their own ideas, and that's ok. My aunt uses a lot of layout book ideas and they look fabulous in her book...and some of the elements I've even borrowed for my own book. 

There's also a community on LJ called scrapbookers (i think?) and people post layout templates there.

Ifyou really need ideas  and don't want to buy the layout books, just talk to thoer scrapbookers, either online or at crops.  Ask to look at other people's books, too. 

Good luck!
