10-Minute Layout Class

I promise, this page took 10 minutes. (actually a little less!) I wanted to do a class on a simplified scrapbook page. Of course you can take this and embellish it more and create a more advanced page, but sometimes I like sticking to the basics. I also did not use a Cricut on this, so anyone can do it.
Finished product

To start, get a 12x12 sheet of scrapbook paper, 3 coordinating scrap strips (one about 7 inches wide), some buttons and embellishments (optional), an ink pen and adhesive. I chose 2 4"x6" vertical photos and 1 2"x3" horizontal photo for this layout. Of course if you're a digital scrapbooker, then ignore that and gather your chair and keyboard and computer. Wink

I started by creating a white outline on the border of the 12x12 sheet. By using a "busy" paper, I can keep this page simple and create a quick layout.

Then I took the largest coordinating piece and glued it to the 12x12 first. Off center it a little. This makes it easier on the eyes.... Smile

Then add the two other strips

Next is the photos! Place the 2 larger photos a little slanted in the center. Then glue the little photo straight a little off-center to the left.

Next, the embellishment. I chose a chipboard accent and some buttons

I finished the layout with hand writing the words "these are the moments..." in white ink across the top of the page.

Hope this will inspire you to create a simple 10 minute page. I'd love to see them! Smile

I love it! I always like when you do the white lines around the edges...is that just a white gel pen?

Wow. I wish I could put something that good together in 10 minutes! I love it. Why don't my un-matted photos look that good though.

Yes, it's a "Gelly Roll" medium tip white gel pen. I found it at a scrapbook store. I actually have 3 different white gel pens and love them all! I pick them up when I see they're on sale. The other brand I like is "Y&C Gel Xtreme GX101W White"...they are easier to find and work great. Always, always test out the pen before leaving the store with it as I've bought many that don't work. Nothing more frusterating than that!

Yes, the Father wording was already on the page. When doing "quick pages" it's easiest if you choose a busy paper or one with wording already on it. Then you are just working around that. Smile

THANK YOU ALL!
