Today at Bo Bunny, the team is focusing on layout that can be put together in under an hour.
When I saw the idea, I have to admit that I thought, "Are you KIDDING me?" Nope, they were serious! :) Amazingly to me, it can be done!
In all honesty, I struggled more than an hour to come up with an idea! Now that I've realized that it can actually be done, I'll be trying more fast layouts.
How I did it it...
First, I pulled out only papers and embellishments from one collection. I chose the Mama-razzi2 collection. Having everything already go together takes out the search and decide time that can sometimes take longer than making a page.
I cut several random widths of different papers. I kept the design super simple by just adding them vertically and varying the lengths of the strips.
Don't get bogged down in making your own shapes. Use the Noteworthy package and chipboard shapes to add to your design and embellish. The shapes are already made which makes your job easy! The only thing that I cut was the paper banner and it was already on one of the papers. No detailed cutting.
Finally, the little extras are quick and easy. A few brads, a sticker title and quick stitching completes the page. Don't forget the tip I've shared a few times. No need to make stitches when you're in a hurry! Just pierce at the corners and stopping spots to make quick borders and add a touch more detail!
