TIME SAVING TIP NO. 1

USE PROJECT LIFE CARDS EFFECTIVELY

HERE, I'VE LAYERED SOME FUN ELEMENTS THAT, ALTHOUGH INTENDED FOR PROJECT LIFE, MAKE GREAT ADDITIONS TO ANY SCRAPBOOK LAYOUT! THIS 'BE YOUTIFUL' CARD FROM STUDIO CALICO WAS THE PERFECT TITLE ELEMENT TO INCLUDE, AND THE WATERCOLORED STRIPES JUTTING OUT FROM BEHIND MY IMAGE WAS A QUICK PAINTING PROJECT I DID A WHILE AGO TO MAKE SOME OF MY OWN PL CARDS. I SAVED ANY I DIDN'T USE AT THE TIME AND NOW HAVE THEM TO INCLUDE WHEN I WANT TO!

USE VARYING STITCH LENGTHS TO MAKE EMBROIERDY QUICKER

I KNEW I WANTED TO EMBROIDER ONE FERN TO MAKE THE BACKGROUND REALLY POP, BUT TO SAVE MYSELF A LITTLE TIME, I USED LONGER STITCHES WHEN I COULD. THIS REALLY SPED UP THE STITCHING PROCESS AND KEPT MAKING THIS PAGE AROUND 30-40 MINUTES IN TOTAL!

TIME SAVING TIP NO. 3

RE-USE ELEMENTS FOR QUICKER COORDINATION

THE PINK AND YELLOW STRIPS I USED TO DECORATE THE TOP OF MY LAYOUT WERE TAKEN FROM THE BOTTOM OF DECORATIVE PAPERS (THE FERN ONE USED FOR THIS LAYOUT AND ANOTHER ONE). I TRIMMED OFF A STRIP OF THE PINK STRIPES AND TUCKED IT IN BEHIND MY PHOTO AS WELL FOR A QUICK WAY TO USE COLOR REPETITION AND COORDINATE MY COLOR PALETTE THROUGHOUT THE SPREAD. USING ELEMENTS FROM THE SAME PIECE, OR EMBELLISHMENT PACK MAKE IT SUPER QUICK TO COORDINATE THIGNS THROUGHOUT YOUR SPREAD!
