I really enjoy creating scrapbook layouts from scratch but, like many of us, I don't have a lot of time to scrapbook. I find myself turning to Fast2Fab albums more and more these days to help get my pictures into albums. I used the Look On The Bright Side Fast2Fab pages for the pictures I took on Easter Sunday, 2014. Today I'm going to share three of the scrapbook layouts I created with you. 

Layout 1:

Layout 2:

Layout 3:

To create each of these layouts you will need:

Layout 1:
  • For this layout I used the preprinted horizontal photo mats on the left page and the vertical photo mat on the right page as is. I covered one vertical photo mat on the right page with two horizontal photos as shown.
  • To create the journal box, cut a slide-in card to 1 1/4" x 6" and adhere to page as shown.
  • Trim another slide-in card to 3/4" x 6" to create a title mat and adhere to page as shown. Using sharp scissors, fussy cut a camera from slide-in card. Use a foam square to adhere to page.
Layout 2:
  • For each page, cut two horizontal photos to 4 1/2 x 6 inches. Group with two 4" x 6" photos as shown.
  • Use the personal trimmer and sharp scissors to cut "Favorite photos" and the large camera from slide-in cards. Use foam squares to adhere to page as shown.
Layout 3:
  • Adhere photos to the mat-less predesigned pages as shown.
  • Use the personal trimmer to trim the horizontal "Love this" slide-in card to 3 x 4 1/4 inches. Adhere to layout as shown.
  • Use the personal trimmer to cut a 1 1/4" x 4" piece from yellow slide-in card. Use the border maker and chevron cartridge to cut a short 4" border from green paper or slide-in card. Trim as shown. Adhere to yellow piece then to layout as shown.
