My Foolproof Method for Easy Scrapbook Layouts

by | Jun 6, 2012 | Productivity Advice | 2 comments

For over three years, I’ve used a specific five step method for scrapbooking with less stress. Following this step-by-step approach makes it possible to scrapbook when I have pockets of time, since I always know what is next. Scrapbooking should be fun and easy!

Sometimes I’ll deviate from this method because I’m feeling creatively inspired, but I always return to it for easy scrapbook layouts when my mojo isn’t cooperating.

Five Steps for Creating a Scrapbook LayoutΒ 

  1. Choose 2-5 images that tell a story and make you happy.
  2. Find a sketch or template that fits the number of photos selected.
  3. Select a non-thematic digital or paper kit that goes-with-anything.
  4. Assemble the layout without adhesive, layering from the bottom up.
  5. Rearrange if needed, adhere and embellish the layout.

Each of these steps can be completed in a separate sitting and should take no more than 15 minutes. Set a timer if you need help making decisions. Focus on moving forward over perfection.

    Mine’s 4 steps – all digital, so no need to go back and glue everything down! When it looks right, it’s done. The template speeds things up tremendously too.

    I agree with most of your steps, but I do enjoy thematic kits and embellishments πŸ™‚
