How long does it take you to make one scrapbook page? (I assume LO means layout? ) There is so much to choose from and so much you can do with one page! I am overwhelmed and I'm just digital scrapbooking. I wish I could do paper but I don't have the space or the time and patience to do paper My goal is to make one page a day and hopefully it will go by faster than todays did because I spent alot of time downloading freebies from different websites.
I'm a paper girl and it takes me about 3 hours a layout. A lot of ladies here can whip them out, but I can get stuck pretty easy. I am going to start a scraplift folder and try to use it when I get stuck. I find when the first one takes me 3 hours, I can usually do a couple in the next 3 hours. It's just really hard for me to find that chunk of time. Luckily, Daytona is Sunday so I fully intend to barricade myself in the office and get some scrapping done.
I'm a paper girl myself, but I've found it's taking me a lot less time on a LO than it used to. I used to spend about 3 hours on one page, but I'm more comfortable with using just one or two pics per page and I found they take me less time...usually an hour. But that could be spread out all day, with little 10 minute increments here and there. Scrapping with a 16 month old can be challenging!
Yep, "LO" stands for layout on here. Or "Little one" on the birth boards. lol

I mostly do paper as well. I really have no idea it takes me, since at any given time I am "working" on several different lo's at once. My current count is 30 lo's in various stages of completion (oh yes I really have that many) depending on what supplies I have it can take an hour or so to do one, or days.
It usually takes me about 3 hours from start to finish to do a double layout (I'm a paper scrapper). It's crazy to look at the finished product and realize how much time was spent on it... that's ok - it's all for the good!

i find that they go much faster if u have an outline for what you want to do or something. i have a whole outline of what i want to do for ds' baby book in an excel file... i have the topic of the page in one column and then what i want on there in the next column and any embellishments i want to use etc
also creating kits and putting the pps and embies and stuff u are certain u want to use together ahead of time helps alot.... helps save time and u can usually get a few kits made up during a nap or whatever
Good question. Most pages take me about an hour each. Sometimes my system just gets overwhelmed with all the pictures and I have to have patience while it thinks about everything.
No, downloading freebies is a whole different story. I spend lots of time just downloading and unzipping those files.
