a scrapbook layout in less than 10 are my sunshine {a scrapbook layout}

How do you create a layout in less than 10 minutes? Let me explain...
Despite my serious and well documented Thickers addiction, sometimes I just don't want to spell a title out. I really love the Simple Stories 4x6 cards for just this reason. So many of them can be used for titles-they are super versatile and don't need a lot of work to make them look good.
For today's layout, I simply cut it out from the sheet (it was on a 12x12 sheet with 5 other 4x6 cards) and rounded the corners. Boom. I had my layout title.
Since I am using a collection kit, I just added 2 strips of  patterned paper with contrasting patterns and overlay on  my photo and this layout was literally done in minutes.
Clean, simple and fast. I'll be back Monday with a layout that wraps up a whole summer of fun in a double layout.


  1. And this is exactly why I love simple stories too! Great layout, love the paper!

  2. LOVE IT! Especially love that you made it in 10 minutes! Fabulous!!!
