Scrapbooking can consume quite the amount of time. You don’t need to spend hours upon hours to create a beautiful scrapbook; sometimes the quick and easy techniques allow you to build upon your existing creative ideas and inspirations to make a book that’s simply stunning. Below are some fabulous tips for those scrapbookers who are pressed for time but still want a beautiful book to show off.
Tip #1 – Don’t mat every single photo among your page layout. Only mat the picture that you want to be the focal point on the page.
Tip #2 – If you need to spread your adhesive glue over a large surface area, use the phony credit cards and old calling cards to spread the glue easy and much faster across the surface.
Tip #3 – Cut out designs from patterned papers for fast page accents. Adhere the piece right to the page for instant beauty.
Tip #4 – Rather than adding a single mat to each photo, save time by requesting a mat be added to your picture at the photo lab.
Tip #5 – Use staples to fasten pictures and other page elements that will give your book a more edger look as well as save time.
