Part two of my series on how to scrap quickly and easily is all about what type of scrapper are you?
There is generally two types of scrapbookers. The first type of scrapbooker is the one that scrapbooks in a chronological manner. For example I scrapbook a yearly album for my family that starts with January and ends with December. Each month has a few layouts and some months more than others. The entire album is put together in this order though.
The second type of scrapbooker is the one who scrapbooks in a theme manner. This means that the person generally scraps events together. For example they would scrapbook holidays together and events together.
In order to scrapbook and be organized as I stated in part one you have to know how you want to scrapbook. This way you will have a general idea of how your pictures will be placed in your album. When organizing your photos you should organize them in the same general order that you would like to place them in the album.
Organizing your photos whether they are in a chronological order or in a theme order is key so that the layouts can be completed quickly.
The other part to this is to know what type of album you are going to use when you are done with your layouts. I always use strap hinge albums from creative memories. I don’t like the post hinge albums because I have never had success with them and I have never been intrigued enough to try a 3 ring binder because I always imagine my pages just flopping around in them.
All of these albums allow you to scrap your layouts and place them in the album in any order that you would like them to be in. So if you are one of those people who just scrap as it comes to you, you will still be able to go ahead and place your pictures in any order you want.
There is never a right or wrong way to scrapbook. The key point is to remember to organize your photos so that you can scrapbook them quickly and easily.
