Each of us collective members gets the opportunity to share a little about about her “specialty.” Now, I'm not a photographer at the level of, say, Melanie Louette or Rebecca Cooper. I can't rock the digi like Ann Costen or Celeste Smith. I don't create journaling that makes the page sing like Elizabeth Dillow. But you know what I can do really, really well?
I scrap fast.
Somedays, you have four hours to spend on a single layout, hand-sewing each sequin and detailing your journaling with gold leaf and a horsehair paintbrush. And somedays? Well, somedays you just don't. The dog is sick, the kids are due at the groomer's (or maybe it's the reverse – but you've lost your planner, so you're not sure). You need to get dinner on the table, and the laundry! The laundry is EVERYWHERE. But you still want to scrapbook. And you can!
This week, I'm going to share one of my very favorite ways to jumpstart my scrapbooking. My mantra is, if it doesn't get done in the length of one “Barney” video, it isn't getting done. And if you follow my advice, you'll be well on your way to beating the clock, too.
Whatever your scrapbooking roadblock, I promise I'll have the answers. But in the meantime, fess up: What gets in the way of your scrapbooking? Product selection? Page ideas? Design? Journaling? Do tell!
