FAST + FABULOUS FRIDAY NO. 37

SAVING TIME WITH A PATTERN OVERHAUL

THIS WEEK'S FAST + FABULOUS SPREAD IS TITLED 'HELLO HELLO, HI" AND WAS SUPER QUICK TO CREATE BECAUSE I GAVE THE SPREAD A PATTERN OVERHAUL, BUT LET THAT BE THE REAL SHINING POINT OF THE SPREAD! I ONLY USED ONE PIECE OF PATTERNED PAPER FOR THIS PAGE AND BY SIMPLY TRIMMING OUT PIECES FROM THE PAPER AND RE-ARRANGING THE LAYOUT - I WAS ABLE TO CREATE A BEAUTIFUL LAYERED LOOK WITH MAXIMUM IMPACT AND MINIMAL TIME! KEEP READING TO SEE EVEN MORE OF THIS SPREAD, AND HOW YOU TOO CAN GIVE YOUR LAYOUTS A PATTERN OVERHAUL AND SAVE SOME TIME!

TIME SAVING TIP NO. 1

WITH MY WONDERFUL PRINTED CARDSTOCK IN HAND, I SIMPLY TRIMMED AROUND DIFFERENT SIZES AND GROUPINGS OF THE FLORAL. I KEPT SOME WITH THE STRAIGHT EDGE OF THE PAPER AND PLACED THOSE AROUND THE SPREAD FIRST. I THEN USED POP DOTS BENEATH  OTHER GROUPINGS FOR ADDED DIMENSION AND INTEREST. IN THE END, THIS WAS A SUPER FUN AND QUICK WAY TO GIVE THIS SPREAD THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF PATTERN OVERHAUL!

TIME SAVING TIP NO. 2

THE OTHER REASON THIS SPREAD WAS SUPER QUICK WAS THAT I GRABBED READY TO GO TITLE PIECES AND SIMPLY LAYERED THEM FOR A FUN AND ATTRACTIVE WAY TO ADD TYPOGRAPHY TO THE PAGE. I KEPT THE PATTERN THE SHINING STAR BY STICKING WITH A QUICK 2" X 2" PHOTO NESTLED IN WITH THE FLORAL SO THAT I HAVE ALL THE MEMORIES OF THE MOMENT, BUT IT DOESN'T TAKE ANYTHING AWAY FROM THE PAGE. WITH A QUICK SWITCH IN PHOTOSHOP, I TOOK THIS PHOTO TO BLACK AND WHITE AS WELL SO THERE WOULD BE ONE COHESIVE COLOR PALETTE THROUGHOUT THE SPREAD.
