    Default 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.


    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....


    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!

    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.

    Did the Father and all come premade on the page? I never saw how that got there.
