Slowest Scrapbooker…Ever!


Seriously, I must be the slowest scrapbooker on the planet. These two pages took me 2 hours, and there is nothing to them! I forced myself to simplify and resisted the urge to stamp on these pages. Yes, finding the photos took a bit of time, but…still! Oh well, they are done, and I completed my challenge for the weekend. That makes me a happy camper!

The first LO is from the current Creative Scrappers sketch. I know…it wasn’t on my list, but I saw the sketch in my blog reader and was inspired. I’m really attracted to circles. The only problem I had with this LO is that my large Coluzzle circle is only 8″, but I went with it since my goal was to simplify.

Again, notice my love of circles! This time I went with sketch #5 over at 52 Sketches…52 Weeks; I’m a little behind! The beauty of being the world’s slowest scrapbooker is that I don’t put pressure on myself to keep up with a LO a week. 😉 That being said, I do want to finish my cruise album this summer, so I do need to pick up the pace. I also need to cut back on the number of pages I create–I’m already at 20 and I haven’t made a dent in my photos…uh…yeah…not a good sign. I’m fairly certain that I don’t want to look through a 50 pound scrapbook!

This LO reminds me that I really need to get a zoom lens for my camera. I also need to learn how to use the manual features of my SLR. I need more time in the day!

My adventures as a CTMH consultant began in April of 2007. My goal was simply to meet my minimums so that I could enjoy the consultant discount. Little did I know that my passion for the products and teaching scrapbooking and stamping techniques would lead me to so many new friendships. I've had the good fortune to travel to a variety of CTMH events and was even asked to teach at the Studio J Boot Camp in 2011, Convention Extravaganza in 2012, and on the main stage at Convention 2015.

    I’m right there with you in the slow department.

    But, both layouts are great!

    The layouts are great! If going slow produces layouts like these, then creep on!

    I love these layouts! I sometimes have that where it takes hours for the simplest LO and no time at all to do a complex one. And I NEVER get one finished in the first time I sit down with it – always leave my titles and journaling for another time!
