Quick and easy is a good thing when you don't have a lot of time to scrapbook. However, quick and easy doesn't mean boring. When you're pressed for time, you can put a page together quickly by concentrating on a few elements that make your page feel special -- not rushed.
On this first layout, I had a kit from Polka Dot Whimsy that included lots of ribbon and fabric strips. I hadn't yet used them on a layout, so I decided to go all out and use them all on a single page. I just stitched each ribbon or fabric piece down on cardstock, matted my photo and added a few simple embellishments.
Love that fabric flower -- it was a premade element in the kit.
Quick and easy -- but definitely not boring.
Next, I created this layout very quickly with a collection kit from Echo Park. I simply used strips of paper for the background, a large focal photo, and sticker embellishments from the kit.
The kit included some cute star stickers, so I created a few more with my paper punches.
Again, quick and easy, but also fun and heart-felt.
When you don't have a lot of time to scrapbook, you can still create great pages quickly. Just concentrate on putting a few special elements together to get a look you love.
