In today’s fast-paced world, shortcuts are always nice. And, when they result in beautifully complete scrapbook albums, that’s even better!

Just in case you’ve not yet discovered the joy you’ll experience when scrapbooking with Creative Memories Fast2Fab (short for Fast 2 Fabulous) Predesigned Pages, you’re missing out on a whole lot of goodness. Available in themes that showcase events like Baby, Birthday, Sport and more. And, with just a few tiny modifications, you can turn any page into something completely different.

Now, imagine if you had more photos than the designated spaces, but wanted to use these fab pages. NO problem. Simply cover up some of the design elements on the page with your own embellishments, paper or photos and presto – they’re totally customised. Easy peezy! Here are the same pages with just a few components added:

Our marketing/design whizz Kelly Batten put a totally fun twist on these travel pages, turning them into 4 and 3 photo scrapbook page layouts. She created borders to add some additional design elements to the page. She also covered up the globe design on the left page with a circle shape cut using the Custom Cutting System with Circle Patterns. It’s a great way to make a page layout title that packs a punch and fits your theme perfectly!

To create these pages, you’ll need:

Step 1: Cover the journalling box on the left hand page with a piece of the red plaid/leaves designer paper to measure 12” x 5”.

Step 2: Create a Crown Border from a sheet of beige designer paper and trim to measure 12” x 1-3/4” and adhere to the left side of the red plaid/leaves paper.

Step 3: Cut the camera embellishment from the deisgner paper sheet and adhere to the bottom left corner as shown. Trim photos to fit remaining space above the camera embellishment and adhere in place (approx 4″ x 4″ and 4″ x 5-1/4″).

Step 4: Adhere two 6″ x 4″ photos in the spaces provided.

Step 5: For the right hand page, create two Crown Borders from the remaining sheet of red plaid/leaves paper and trim both to measure 12” x 2” and adhere above and below the horizontal white stripes as shown.

Step 6: Adhere three 6” x 4” photos, one in the top space provided and two butted together across the page just above the lower crown border.

Step 7: Find the mustard yellow Slide In mat with the pennant shaped journalling box. Hand trim around the pennant shape, leaving a yellow border. Adhere as shown, tucked behind the top photo.

Step 11: Finish by adhering leaf embellishments and complete journalling.
