Turning a Little Lamb Fast2Fab™ into a Maritime Fast2Fab™

Have you ever had an excess of products from one scrapbook collection but needed more supplies from another collection for the project you want to make? Or maybe you purchased a Fast2Fab™ album with the intent to make one kind of themed album but then it fell through and now you don’t know what to do? These aren’t solution-less problems! With a few modifications and a little bit of creativity, you can easily transform a Fast2Fab™ and make it work for a completely different theme. Check out how blog contributor Meg was able to take the Little Lamb Baby Boy Fast2Fab™ and turn it into a Maritime Fast2Fab™ in today’s post!

Blog Contributor Megs’s Inspiration:

I love the Fast2Fab™ albums and was sad that the Maritime collection didn’t come with Fast2Fab™ pages. Then, I started thinking that the cover would look good with the Little Lamb Baby Boy Fast2Fab™ pages. I had looked at those pages when they came out and thought they would work for lots of things in addition to babies. And it was true! With a few modifications, the Little Lamb Baby Boy Fast2Fab™ pages were perfect in the Maritime album for my family’s cruise vacation from Boston to Bermuda.

Here are a few ways to help turn your Little Lamb Baby Boy Fast2Fab™ pages into Maritime Fast2Fab™ pages!

  1. Creating a border to put at the bottom of the page.
  2. Wallpapering the whole page with a decorative piece of paper.
  3. Cutting strips of paper from the Maritime Paper Pack to cover up non-related icons such as the cows.
  4. Covering up any coloured elements that don’t fit your theme, such as the colours yellow or pink.
  5. Using stickers or mats to add little touches of Maritime feel to each page.
