Power Scrapping!

So anyone who reads the Daily Digi would have recently seen this post about Power Scrapping by Katie. As soon as I read this I was inspired and knew I just had to give it a go. Although I have much more time to scrap than the author, sometimes I just get 'stuck' and this looked like a good way to help me out. So a couple of days ago I tried it! As the article says I started out by picking the photos first - something that I hardly ever do, then as my creativity was lacking I went template searching for each of my pages (I thought I'd give just 2 pages a go to start with). Gradually I built up my pages & I was very pleased with the results these 2 pages below in one day!

I used one of my favourite kits from SuzyQ Scraps for the Piggies LO called 'In The Farmyard' (psssst...I hear she's also got a date for the grand opening of her new store ;) ). The template I used for this page was by Jen Yurko.

The Bridemaids page I was totally stoked about because I wouldn't have scrapped this page if I hadn't picked the photos out first. My daughter Caitlyn is the little sad one (bless her) and the other two girls in the middle are my nieces - I think they all look SOOOO pretty! (Proud Mummy/Auntie moment LOL). Instead of a full page template for this page I used a Photo Cluster template called a 'Scraplet' by Danielle Corbitt Designs (handy to just plonk on a background and customize to have a ready made page! And the kit is called 'Dusty Ponderosa' which is a collab between Danielle Corbitt Designs & Steel City Scraps.

So that's my show of Power Scrapping & I'll definitley be doing that again! Let me know your thoughts & the results if you give it a go - I'm interested to see how it works out for people :)

Thanks for reading & happy scrapping!
