Fast Pages: Create Fall and Winter-Themed Scrapbook Layouts in Just 45 Minutes or Less!

Tis' the season for saving time, so you're going to love how easy-to-create these scrapbook layouts are. Just 45 minutes from start to finish!

Get a Color Blended Look Using Spray Ink

Get this fun ombre, or blended look, on your layout by simply using two shades of spray ink on a white sheet of cardstock. Spray the lighter shade of ink first and then the darker shade of ink, making sure the lighter color looks like it gradually fades into the darker shade. Once the ink is dry, punch circle accents from your cardstock using punches in a variety of sizes.
