Stick and Go Layouts

I was looking around for a new sketch or inspiration for some layouts when I came across this article : Stick and Go: Try super-fast composition with just one little rule . Needless to say I was curious and I read the article. Then I decided that it couldn't hurt to try it. I don't know about anyone else but I get bored of scrapping the same way after a while and like to mix it up a little bit. Here are the layouts I made today using that method.


This is the first one I did using up some Minds Eye scraps, paper, and cs embellies. I really liked the way this came out. It was really easy and took me only 45 minutes from start to finish. It worked out so well with this layout that I decided to try scrapping this method with my next layout.


I adore these fun pictures and I used more Minds Eye stuff with this one as well. I quickly decided where I wanted the pictures to go then just took more scraps and layered them on a piece of pattern cs paper. This one only took about 35 minutes.


What I've been needing to do is use up my old papers. I had some cute bobunny paper out for these pictures and thought, well I have some old stuff that matches, I should probably use that up first. I have a hard time using up my older papers lately because I've just been wanting to use my new papers, lol. It's the same thing with pictures too. I haven't wanted to scrap the old ones, just the new ones ^_~. But I did good. All these layouts are using up my 2006 pics and I started using up some of my old paper with this layout.


I used more old paper with this layout as well. I had a harder time liking these last two layouts just because it's old pattern papers and old pictures. But I'm happy with them. I'm catching up on my page a day goal and am using up my old stuff, yay! Next up is the color challenge ^_~

Just read the article...it's a good one! I loved her point about hoarding her embellishments for six years 'cause she loved them so much - now she's using them before she doesn't love them. Can't tell you how many times that has happened to me!

I love your layouts too. A page done in 45 min or less - woo hoo - I want to go there!! :-) Maybe tonight! Thanks for the inspiration, yet again, Marjorie!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who had their scrapbook mojo stirred up by this article. I read it in February, forced myself to try a layout (actually five), hyperventilating all the time I was gluing items crooked on my paper. But in the end, I not only loved the layouts, I would say my scrapbooking self has been changed permanently. I don't find myself making layouts the old way anymore. I don't have a blog I can link you to, but if you're curious to see another scrapbooker's first attempts at "stick and go" scrapbooking, shoot me an e-mail and I'll be glad to upload to a photoserver and grant you access. Oh, and why not shoot an e-mail to Shimelle also? I did, and she wrote me back and told me I just made her day. Fun, huh? Also, search her blog for "The Story of the Special Paper". I think you'll get a kick out of that one, too!
