Speed Scrapping

I have actually done a lot more scrapbooking lately. In fact, I've found a way to make things a little more fun. It's called "speed scrapping".

Lots of sites that sell digital scrapbooking kits host them & you usually get a prize like a discount or a free kit for completing your layout within the time limit. They start at a specific time and you get instructions every 10 minutes until the hour is up. After that hour is over, you usually get 1 more hour to complete your layout and post it to both the gallery and the forum thread where you got the directions. It was a challenge but it forced me to finish & not obsess if everything was in the right place. Even mild OCD tendencies are not good when digital scrapbooking!

I thought I'd share the results. Enjoy!

And I know it's a few days early but...

Happy Valentine's Day!

And One Of My Hobbies Finally Pays Off

I had a strange email in my inbox a few days ago. It was a $20 print credit from Persnickety Prints. I didn't get any other notification, just the credit. It couldn't be. Really? I actually won something?


I realized a few months ago, that I had been totally neglecting my digital scrapbooking. I had started out 2010 with the goal to scrap one page a week for the year. I think I stopped sometime in February. When it came time to make my Christmas cards, I realized I was out of practice. I'd forgotten all of my favorite Photoshop Elements shortcuts & quick keys and the cards took waaaay longer than they should have. So I decided I needed to practice. I knew of a site that ran contests every month with a template so I did a little downloading then went to work. I really wasn't impressed with my entry but I liked the sentiment behind it.


The journaling reads: "This year I resolve to not beat myself up when I don't accomplish all of the wonderful things that I plan to do this year. It's not about perfection, it's about progress!"

I actually won the challenge. If you don't believe me, you can see the winners post here... January 2011 Challenge winners

Talk about some nice motivation to make some more pages. I need to use that credit somehow!
