One of my goals in 2018 is to see a few more scrapbook albums & projects finished. To kick it off I’m working on a New York City 6×8 album that I started about 6 months ago.
At this point I had placed all photos inside, it just needs journaling, stickers, etc. So I got out my supplies and got to work!
A few notes when going for speed/simple:
- Work as inspired. Flip through, if the journaling comes to you then add it. Jot it down. If you’ve got a sticker book in your hand, add stickers where you see appropriate spots.
- Don’t sweat “fancy” ideas. If they happen – cool! But honestly a vacation album most especially the photos are going to be the stars.
- Something in a corner, or along an edge is always a good idea!
- Work in batches. Get photos in place, then add journaling, then stickers, etc.
Above all – make use of your time whether big or small amounts!
To share some of my quick tips & tricks I made this YouTube video:
I’ll be back all throughout National Craft month with more ideas, tips, projects, and all kinds of crafting!
My biggest tip? If possible, leave a few things out to enjoy and play with so that you are better able to make more out of smaller bits of time. This style of scrapbooking is absolutely perfect for people who need to work in small increments of time.
