Fancy Up Your Countryside Comfort Fast2Fabulous

Fast2Fab Albums have quickly become my favorite way to scrapbook! I love how quickly and easily the pages come together, helping me stay caught up on my projects. Plus, with the matching papers and embellishments, I can add a little personalization and flexibility to the printed pages. Sometimes I’ll keep it super simple with just my photos and journaling; other times I’ll have more fun with it, adding borders, titles and stickers to spice it up.

Basic to Dressy Natural Elegance Fast2Fab Scrapbook Page Ideas

I love it that I can create an entire scrapbook album in just a few hours with Creative Memories Fast2Fab Predesigned Albums. I just adhere my photos to the pages, add some journaling and that’s it!

Today I’m going to share two scrapbook layouts from the Natural Elegance Fast2Fab album with you. One basic layout and one dressed up version.

One Memory, Three Ways – Wedding Edition!

Whether you are a simple scrapper, a pocket scrapper or a decorative scrapper, the beautiful Natural Elegance Collection will help you create gorgeous layouts that effortlessly highlight your wedding photos! I used the lovely papers, sticker, embellishments and slide-in cards from the collection with my own wedding photos to create an almost instant “naked” page on the beloved Black Scrapbook Pages, a slide-in page using the versatile Multi-Pocket Pages and a more traditional layout where I got to have fun with layering decorative papers & borders and making embellishments clusters.

Create The Perfect Wedding Guest Book With Creative Memories’ Natural Elegance Fast2Fab Album

With two weddings on my 2017 calendar, I’m already thinking about wedding shower gifts. My standard gift for a bride-to-be is a Creative Memories Fast2Fab album for the newlywed’s wedding and/or honeymoon photos. This time, though, I’m thinking of doing something a little different. Instead of handing each bride-to-be an unfinished scrapbook album, I plan to use their engagement photos to create the perfect wedding guest book. Creative Memories’ Natural Elegance Wedding Collection makes it so easy to create a guest book for your own wedding or to give as a gift.  Here are a few page ideas to get you started:

DSC_0426

Start with your cover page, add a photo and use a Natural Elegance slide-in to create a message for the wedding guests from the bride and groom. Embellishments from the Natural Elegance Embellishments Pack and Natural Elegance Sticker Pack were added to dress up the page.

Be sure to leave plenty of room for guests to write in your guest book. For this layout, I used Cloud cardstock to mat one photo and to create a notched strip. I then added embellishments and stickers from the Natural Elegance Wedding Collection.

I added a Natural Elegance slide-in, another photo of the engaged couple and one sticker to this scrapbook layout. The rest of the pre-designed photo boxes were left empty for guests to write in.

Patterned paper from the Natural Elegance paper pack was used to mat the photos in this layout. Natural Elegance embellishments and stickers were used to dress it up. Again, there is plenty of space left for guests to write on.

Although three photos were used for this layout there is still plenty of room left for guests to add their sentiments.
Here’s what you’ll need to create the perfect wedding guest book:
There you go! Have fun creating your own wedding guest book!

One Memory, Three Ways – Vacation Edition!

I’m happy to be sharing another example of how you can easily preserve your memories and stories wno matter how much time you have to scrapbook. you can create a lovely layout in only 10, 15 or 45 minutes! The new Cool Serenity Collection is full of great products that allow you to choose how you want to scrapbook: use the Fast 2 Fabulous Pre-designed Pages to achieve a gorgeous traditional look without spending too much time; use Multi-Pocket Pages and Slide-In Cards to document your stories without needing to cut and paste; or go full out and make beautiful, traditional pages using the Paper Pack, Cardsock, Embellishments and Stickers!

Pinterest Inspired Travel Scrapbook Layouts – Uncharted Collection

I instantly fell in love with our new Uncharted Collection! I love the color palette, the old-world and travel-related designs and most of all the embellishments!  As shown in my first layout, this collection is great for European vacations. But you don’t need to be a world traveler to love or use the Uncharted Collection. I found that it was just as great for photos from an Alaskan vacation. My assignment was to interpret layouts that I found on Pinterest. The first idea that I found  worked perfectly with our papers and embellishments. For my second layout, I made a few adaptations and started with ourFast2Fab Predesigned Pages. Make sure to follow Creative Memories on Pinterest for more page layout ideas and inspiration.
