Layouts in under an hour

Sometimes you don't have a lot of time,
but you still want to get some scrapping in.

Today the girls have fun layouts they created in under an hour.
They have great tips for you too.

Robbie Herring
Tips: Use several strips for your basic design. I just cut several varied sized strips of different lengths and widths and layered them. It's a quick and easy way to add lots of layers in a jiffy.
~Use pre-cut embellishments and shaped papers. The tags are from the Noteworthy package. I only had to distress them since they were ready to go! 
~Don't forget that you can get the look of a stitched border by just piercing at the corners and 
stopping spots. So quick and easy!

 Tip: This may seem like a layout that took over an hour to create, but it wasn't! My tricks? 
~ First I started with a page design that I had created before and just followed the design for this page. For me what takes the longest is all the fussing about, moving pieces, deciding on what to put where....so using the a design that I created before really helps in cutting the time factor down.
~ Bo Bunny makes loads of amazing and beautiful coordinating embellishments that makes dressing up a page fast and easy! Chipboard, blooms, lace...all made to match your layout, just peel and stick!
~ and finally I gather together all the materials I'll need to make up my page, inks, paints, sewing machine, punches....and have them ready to go. So I don't spend a lot of time while I'm making my page look for stuff. Following a preset design helps make it easy to know what things you will need as well.
 Extra Tip: Another time saving thing I like to do is when I'm just sitting and watching TV I'll take some Clover Green Double Dot paper and just punch a whole lotta leaf designs from it and keep them in a little baggie ready to go for when I'm making up a bloom cluster for a page)
