I love when we can all discuss topics and share ideas, both old and new. That exact thing happened this past week in the forums.
I had posted about my blog post 5 Ways to Get More Out of Your Kits, and everyone was chiming in on tips they use for working with their kits. Then, Kristina mentioned Power Scrapping. I knew of the term but wasn’t sure we were talking about the same thing. Much to my surprise, when I asked her, she shared a blog post I had written here two years ago about Power Scrapping. You can check out that post here:
Basically, Power Scrapping is batching tasks that you do when you complete a page. It often works for larger album projects like Project Life. So first you may choose and place all the photos, then you might put all the cards or paper on each page, etc. I had originally learned the technique from Katie the Scrapbook Lady and experimented and made it work for my own scrapping.
The real reason this is all too coincidental is that I have been struggling with completing the last part of my Disney 2016 Album. I have loved doing all of the pages for specific places or things, but now I am left with the pages that document each day. I have used this style page in all of my Disney albums, and don’t want to leave it behind…but I can’t find the motivation or mojo to get those pages done.
Enter Power Scrapping. I had never thought of using this approach to get these pages done. After rereading my article from 2015, I am currently working up a plan for how I can tackle these last 14 pages of my book. Over the next few weeks, I will share with you my process and finished results.
I urge you to read the article from two years ago and see if Power Scrapping is something you can make work for you!
