Cut Your Scrap Time in Half

Pinnable Graphic

Hello again!

 One of the biggest roadblocks scrapbookers seem to encounter (besides missing mojo - ha!) is a crowded schedule that leaves little time to actually scrap. Today I've got an easy solution for you to try the next time you have a few minutes and want to crank out a page.
All you'll need is three different patterned papers cut into 2 rectangles and 1 square. Scraps are fine - you may recognize these pieces from my "Killer Stash Kit."

You'll also need one piece of 12 x 12 solid cardstock or tone-on-tone patterned paper. From these, you can create at least 5 different layout variations, and from each of those, you can get four slightly different looks by simply rotating the page.

Note: These are only examples. There are MANY ways these pieces could be combined to make the basic layout.
I chose Variation 1 to create this layout about my bestie:

And used the corners created by the paper layers to guide the placement of my embellishments.

There you go - a super-easy, super FAST way to scrap a page. I'd love to see your creations using this process. Please leave me a comment below linking to your work.
