Scrapbook Scribbles 6: Trying to Find Time

Do you feel as if you don’t have time to scrapbook?  All of that gathering of tools and supplies, cutting and cropping, assembling and gluing, and writing?  Well, just do little bits at a time.  Almost anyone can find just 15 minutes in a day.

First, choose your photos you want to do a layout for.  Then you can write the journaling for those photos while the thoughts are still fresh in your mind.   Then, you can pick out your papers to coordinate with your pictures.  Then, you can play with how you want everything arranged on your page.  Some people like to use sketches for their layouts, but I prefer to use the actual items laid all out and then I paperclip where I want things to go.  There also is a handy-dandy item out on the market that is a magnetic box that is for your “page in progress”. (  Then, you can pick out your embellishments.  Then, when you’ve figured out what you want your page to look like, you can adhere everything down.

So, you see, a scrapbook page does not have to be completed in one sitting.  You can do each of these little tidbits in 15 minutes or less at a time and have the feeling of accomplishment.  Before you know it, you’ll have an entire album done!
