hey fellow AS artist
Any other sort of decoration purely to make the sketchbook "more interesting" is irrelevant.
Because what is being marked is your ability to reproduce and develop your own artwork, it's a sketchbook not scrapbook.
Some of those examples on studentartguide.com are really bad examples and look amateur, something you would expect a GCSE student to produce. Last year on my previous course a former student came in (who has done a degree in art) and who got D*D*D* overall in BTEC extended diploma. They showed us all 6 of there sketchbooks at degree level and they were full of research, reproductions, process, relevant clippings/sources and photographs. The sketchbook was completely plain (undecorated). But it was all her own work and her understanding and commitment was clear and it was so much more interesting.
Decorating your sketchbook with scrap and stuff is such a waste of time, it doesn't count towards anything and definitely won't be relevant at university level.
Take scrapbooking as a hobby if you like to decorate pages
