Creating a Scrapbook Page in 30 Minutes or Less

Hi everyone. It’s Robbie today. I am sharing a layout that I made with the Midday Medley Collection. I have been traveling lately and I’m behind on everything, so I thought today’s layout would be the perfect time to share how easily and quickly 3 Birds products make a layout come together.

This layout was done in less than 30 minutes! Actually probably closer to 20 if you really want to know the truth! It is important that you should know that I usually take FOREVER to commit to a final design. Not today!

With all the different kinds of stickers available in the Midday Medley Nestable Festival Sticker Kit and Sticker Flair Set, the design was easy.

So, when I was editing the photo, I realized that I still wanted a bit more. I pulled out another sticker, added a few quilling circles and took a new photo. This was more like it, however I still wasn’t quite happy with it.

Yes, a tiny detail, but it pulled the yellow that I loved into a few smaller places which made me happier with the balance. At this point, I also decided to add a title. Done! Still fast at under 40 minutes!

The small alphabets in the Sticker Flair Kit fit perfectly. A few more details and it’s finished!

  • Don’t use a lot of paper. Because 3 Birds does such a beautiful job with their stickers and embellishments, you can get away with this.
  • Stickers! They are already done for you. Shapes, words, layers, borders… 3 Birds does it all!
  • Stick with what you know. I almost always add ribbon and flowers, so I pulled them out at the beginning and didn’t spend forever searching for a lot of extras.
