My New Way to Scrapbook

OK, if you are like me you are behind on your scrap booking.  Normally this would not bother me, but this is my son's senior year.  I would really like to have his books done...at least his high school one.  So, I contemplated how to get caught up.  Well, after scrolling through my iPad and all the collages I create for different social media, I realized that I really had already scrap booked most of the pictures.  Why couldn't I use those collages in my traditional scrapbooks?  So I gave it a try and I love it!  I printed my collages at 8.25 x 8.25, the largest I can do on my home printer.  I still get to do the creative part but I spend less time on cutting/cropping my pictures.

This is one of my favorite layouts so far.  It is a flip layout that can feature 5 of the collages, so it is perfect for "events".  This is the one I created for homecoming.  The flip layout is so easy to create. For this one I used 4 12x12 sheets of black card stock and glitter papers.  I am going to make a tutorial when I create this one again as it is had to explain, but so easy to do.  

What have you scrap booked lately?

I like this idea a lot but I have to wrap my head around the lack of 3D embellishmebts to get on board. Meanwhile, a remain 13 months behind....
