Scrap Faster

A Solution to Scrapbooking your Photos

In Featured, Other Goodies!, Tips and Tricks of the Trade by Lynn Como

If you have photos that are just waiting to be put on a page, I have a solution for you!  If you get stuck in a rut and are perplexed about creating layouts, I can definitely help solve your problem.  It’s what I do each month:  I create layouts and then ADD my photos after I have made the pages.  There are great advantages to this style of scrapbooking.  Here’s a few ideas to help you consider this method of scrapbooking.

This was a layout I created awhile ago using our Hawthorne Collection.  I knew I would eventually use it for a masculine layout at some point in time.  I love this one and I found the perfect photos to put on this design.

I took this 5×7 photo of Rick this summer.  He so enjoys fishing, ice fishing, hiking (window glare), our dog Jack, and IPA’s.  These photos are a collection over time and I decided to make this layout of the good times or things in his life.  I loved the idea of 2×2 sizes so I could highlight a few details.  Under this you’ll see I did add a 6×4 flip flap and journaling.

Adding photos to these pages were a breeze since the artwork was already done.  I use (not an app) to create the sizes I want and need.  I do have a class on showing you how to do this, so if interested, it’s $20.  You can find the details here on this link.

This past winter, we created the artwork for Wonderland.  this was a BONUS Layout for crop attendees.  I love the subtle colors in this page. The stamping of the trees in  a soft tone of Rosemary and the glacier blue cardstock worked well.

When I was going through my photos for 2022, I found I had these saved in a file for Ice Fishing. Each year in February, Rick goes to the Ice Fishing Derby on Lake Winnipesaukee in NH.  This year, our son Scott joined him and it looks like they had a good catch this time round.

Since I had a few more photos, I pulled out my scraps and created a Pocket Plus page.  I so do enjoy adding this insert in between these two pages so I can add even more photos as well as journal.  Did you know we sell this Pocket Plus page for those that use strap hinge albums?  You can find the product here on this link.
