    Default Just curious...how long does it take...

    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.

    LOL I had this same q when I discovered this board......cause man, sometimes it takes me days!!! LOL I could end up utilizing Tyler's 2 naps (3 hours total), but it can vary a lot for me especially when I get stuck!!!

    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.

    30 layouts at one time??!? Holy smokes!! That's unbelievable.. that must be some sort of record!

    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!

    lol, it really isn't as bad as it looks. Most of those are ones where I know what lo I am going to do, and have the papers, and some ribbon, etc all ready for them, I just need to start them.

    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.
