Tips for faster scrapping and Christmas Layout

With the arrival of my little sweetie, I need to budget my time carefully. Since I still want to get some srapping done, here is what works for me
  • use a kit
  • use a sketch (here I used #190 from Creative Scrappers)
  • switch off facebook, email, skype etc to really focus on the LO.
  • use fast embellishments such as stickers, brads, trinkets , rub ons, flower vines, etc
  • use glue, which does not have to dry
  • stay away from paint, stitching etc
  • use pre-made titles
  • journal by hand

This layout took 40 minutes to make. While it is not an amazing piece of art, it still preserves the memory of a special Christmas (aka the walrus Christmas) and I had some "me time" which I need for my mental health.

What are your tips for faster scrapping? I would love to read about them!!!

Thanks for stopping by.

All the best,



  1. Das Layout ist wunderschön und das Foto von deinem Kleinen zu süß.

    Ich verwende auch sehr gerne Sketches und Farben und nicht zu viel Material *g* ...
