What is the fastest way to a fabulous, complete scrapbook album? Fast2Fabs™ Albums of course! If you haven’t tried them for yourself, you will want to take a look at this post to see how one of our contributors, Karen, creatively integrated traditional pages with Fast2Fab™ pages.
With New Year’s around the corner, it is time to start thinking out of the box! With traditional scrapbooking there is lots of creativity and fun! What if we simplified things to get an extra album or two created in 2018?
I love the Fast2Fab™ albums for just that reason. For that vacation or gift album that would be impossible to do along with my chronological albums so, I turn to the Fast2Fab™ albums!
Imagine. Love. Dreams. Wish. Family. Moments.
The words in the Imagine Laser Cut Embellishments speak to me. They make me want to gather my family close and reminisce over photos and memories, old and new.
Poring over a bunch of old, seemingly random photos the other day got me thinking about how connected everything in my life really is. The circle of life and all that. How fun would it be to create a little coffee table book, connecting the old with the new, Then and Now? What if I could pull it out when the family is gathered and journal memories in it as the photos are talked about and stories are remembered?
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.
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! It’s great when I want to finish an album quickly. The cool thing is that there are coordinating embellishments, stickers and papers available when I want to dress my pages up. 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.
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:
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.

Wedding photos capture a beautiful moment in time. The way you arrange them in your album will help you share the love story in a simple, meaningful way.
For some folks, the thought of completing an entire scrapbook album can be overwhelming. Like, really overwhelming.
Enter the Fast2Fab Album. The hard work and planning is complete with these predesigned pages – simply add a little Tape Runner to your photos and in no time at all, you’ll have a completed photo album. See? Look how easy this looks:
In fact, to see for myself just how incredibly quick and easy creating one of these scrapbook albums really can be, I brought my personal wedding photos to the office and sat down this afternoon with the It’s A Love Thing Fast2Fab Album. It’s just a few hours later and not only do I now have a completed wedding album, I was able to get a tiny bit creative and added in some extra bonus fun things to some of my pages and photos, too. Oh, and by the way – you may notice that my wedding colors were charcoal and sunflower yellow. The fact that I had an outdoor wedding made this album with a green color focus the perfect choice for me! The way it complements the greenery in the photos is totally amazing. Click to read full post
