How Long Does It Take You???

Post by jennaroo on Fri Mar 18, 2011 10:39 am

How does it take you on average for just a normal LO?


If I do a simple one it can take 15-30 minutes......but sometimes I have some that can take a whole day.

I was just curious after I'd been working on ONLY 1 page for the whole crop so far........I really hope after I clean house this morning that I can get more done than that, lol!!!!

Wow Alecia I'm thinking 45 minutes is awesome! It can leterally take me 8 hrs on more on some lo's thats ridic.!!!!! DH was watching last night and said that what I was doing was so detailed and too time consuming and there would be no way he'd do it! I was painted alphas and then inking the edges of each so they pop btw.....not a terrible job, but yeah things like that make my pages take so darn long!

See, I need to take more time with the details... I'm usually just in a hurry to feel like I have something tangible, and I always look back adn think something is missing...

it really depends on what i am scrapping and if i am distracted. generally anwhere from an hour to several hours to create a layout. cards are much quicker for me, sometimes 15 minutes for those.

It depends for me, too. I can agonize over a layout for hours and hours (or days sometimes). But I've really tried to get away from doing that. I have to remind myself that it's a scrapbook... MY art... it doesn't have to be perfect (and, really, what IS perfect???).

The last time I scrapped, I think I did two layouts in about an hour. That was like world record stuff for me, though. Usually, I'm much slower!!!

If I'm in the zone and already know what papers, embellies and photos I want to use then I can usually finish a page in less than 1 hour. There are days were I just push papers around and dig through my stash, creating nothing.

If I find the right pic(s) the lo will happen quickly...same with cards. I've taken up to 2 days to do a lo and as little as 30 mins. I guess sometimes the inspiration needs to be there to make it happen faster. But then some of the cards/los need time to 'set' so I can finish them!

I waste a lot of time digging around in my stash, too. I think I totally forget what I have b/c I don't scrap that often anymore... so I have to reacquaint myself with what I've got before I can actually DO anything! LOL

I spend a lot of time digging too. I would say on average it's about 2 hours per layout...give or take.

If I have a plan and get everything pulled a head of time in a page kit 1hour. If not a minimum of 2-3 hours. Especially if Im not in the zone, I get too distracted by TV and internets. I also tend not to do simple layouts anymore lol. I usually paint or sew or do something else that drives me nuts and eats a ton of time.

wow!! I don't feel bad now!!
Yesterday it seemed I worked on a LO all day!! And it still isn't finished... I moved the photos around for what seemed like hours.. even DH came and pushed the photos around trying to help me!!

Then I got all frustrated because I had spent nearly the entire day and still didn't have something I loved!! I said to DH "I am sure no one else takes this long... and they knock out awesome stuff... whats wrong with me??"

I left it for awhile and realized I had got stuck in the "trying to make it perfect" circle again... just go with it... do it as I think it... not all of them have to be perfect right?

I have this exact same problem. I get this image of what it should look like in my head and when I can't get it to work on paper I get super frustrated.

Im trying to learn to let go and just let the process be more organic rather than trying to force it. So far tonight its really working (though Im on hour 3 of a layout but its super detailed)

I think the fastest I've ever done a LO was 1 hour, but usually I think I'm in the 2-3 hour range. It is NOT because of some time-consuming technique (although that happens sometimes) it's just because I'm ridiculously undecided. And I'll let it sit for days on my table unfinished while I'm deciding.
