56 pages in 13 days
Let's get 246 photos of people we do not know personally onto 56 pages in roughly 35 hours over 13 days. Let's use the client's miscellaneous accent and paper supply box and several dozen brads and several dozen pop dots. Toss in about 10-12 tape runners and some simple, classic designs. Oh yes and please label these family events and make captions for 90% of the photos. It's all written on the backs of the photos so just transpose that info to computer or write it out by hand for the journaling.
What you say? No way?
Well I am here to say that by using the speed scrapping page kitting techniques we share on Scrapperschallenge, I am DONE! Hurray-- and I did not have any help. Yes indeed, I did it myself!
I will be handing off this childhood-to-adult gift album to the client in the next few days. It was a fun project. This family sure went to some amazing spots in the USA over the years which resulted in some AMAZING photos of our natural wonders. The young man and his family climbed a total of 14 summits in the USA so far and he is only 23! Amazing accomplishments and photos. But boy, am I glad to be done in plenty of time now to work on my own holiday preparations!
Enjoy the slideshow! Sorry the pics are not superb. I took them with my phone. But you can see enough to get the idea. My fave layout is the Tailgating Party one above featuring some Cricut cut shapes. Most of these pages are super classic and simple. One or two medium accents per layout with some kind of simple dimensionality added with brads, pop dots, ribbon, pleating, or folding. Remember I had to use her supplies and get creative with what was in the box!

To answer the most commonly asked question it averaged me about 30-40 minutes per 12x12 page. The most time consuming thing was the journaling. Some pages took more time and some took less. To answer the second most asked question, yes the clients pay me to do this for them. :)
