One of the best things about scrapbooking as a hobby is that you can take as little or as much time as you like. On those days when you have plenty of time, you can while away the hours creating your scrapbook masterpieces. However, when you don’t have as much time to spend, you can still create quick and easy scrapbook layouts you can be proud of.
If you’ve spent any time looking at scrapbook supplies (and it’s hard to believe anyone who does scrapping not doing so), you’ll know that you can buy pre-printed pages. These are the some of the quickest ways to complete a scrapbook layout in ten minutes or less.
You choose the page you would like to create, match the photos that will fit the theme, and then write a little bit of explanation in the journal box. How much easier can it be than this? In fact, if you’re using the pre-printed pages you may be able to complete more than one page in ten minutes.
Scrapbook theme kits are another way to create great pages without a lot of effort. Kits include the themed paper, die cuts, stickers, journal boxes, and even photo boxes. You pick and choose what you want and put your pictures with it. It’s so easy, and so much fun!
What if you have a few minutes while you’re waiting in line at the grocery store? Take along a notebook that you can use to sketch out layout ideas. Instead of having to completely create the page, you’ll be using those few minutes to put some ideas down on paper. That way, when you have more time and all of your supplies with you, you’ll be able to complete that idea that you captured earlier.
Did you just get back from vacation, have a party, or has a holiday passed? Use items from these events to create quick and easy scrapbook layouts. How do you do that? Here are some ideas:
* Vacations – Most likely when you were on vacation you picked up something to remember your time there. Whether it’s postcards or pamphlets from someplace you visited, you can include those on the page with your pictures of you there. These items will take up extra space on your page, so they won’t take as long to complete.
* Parties – Did you have a themed party for someone in your family? If so, you may have napkins or other party goods left. Incorporate those items into the page with pictures you took at the party.
* Holidays – There are so many die cuts and stickers available for the holidays, no matter which one you’ve just celebrated. Take advantage of the supplies that are available to you to make creating your scrapbook pages a snap.
You don’t have to labor over your scrapbook to make it look colorful, fun, and enjoyable. It is possible to create quick and easy scrapbook layouts in less time that are just as good. Use some of these ideas and see what you can create in a short amount of time.
