How long does it take you to create a page?

I don't think I've ever finished a page under 1 1/2 hours and then there are those pages that take days! Not like 24/7 working on them, but I could sit in front of a page and go through all kinds of embellishments for hours (each day) before I might find something I like. I can be so unsure of something and work on it for days! I have noticed though as I continue to work on each page, my pace gets faster and faster. So I guess its something that will improve w/ time.

That's funny you posted this, because I was just thinking about this. It used to take me 2-3 hours to come up with ONE page. or more! And lately I can do 5 in that time. Like I did all my christmas pages last night and they didn't take but an hour or so. (Granted they were simple, without embellies and stuff) But I agree, as I get to scrappin' more, pages are taking a lot less time. I guess I just get an idea in my head of how I want to do it before I even get the pic printed a lot of times, so they page just comes together.

it depends on what I'm doing. if I'm scrapbooking "regular pictures", it's about an hour for me to do a page. it used to take me a lot longer, and some pages still can take me a couple of days from start to finish because I'm indecisive about it. and 2 page layouts tend to take me closer to 90 minutes. if I'm doing one of the professional pictures, I'm usually done in 15-20 minutes because it's simple and I'm not trying to do anything fancy at all.

It depends....do I have a computer in front of me or not!? Lol I need the computer to find layouts. I can't think of neat ones on my own. My favorite site to find layouts from is this one. If I have a layout in front of me, it takes about .5-1 hour or so if it's an easy one, 1.5-2 hours if it's a hard one.

hmm it varies for me
sometimes I just know what I'm gonna do and where to put stuff and can make a page in 15-20 min.

and other times it may take me hours to get everything just right

Totally depends on the inspiration for me. Once I get an idea...it doesn't take long at all, but sometimes I sit and stare at the pics and can't even come up with what color background I want to use.
