  1. Great layouts!! It can take me weeks to finish a layout, I have a tendency to put it down and come back to it later when I get into a design rutt!

  2. Those gears are really cool! Just finished a card using "another source's" and I like these so much more! How long for a layout? Too long! I think that's why I have gone more the way of cards. My family and friends love getting the immediate result of my work. I still do layouts, but have to be really "geared up" for it! LOL! Teresa's collection would certainly make it easier.

  3. Depending on where or not I have a layout in mind with whatever picture I am working with at times 30 minutes...or could be dragged out for several days. I enjoy it all. I have several friends trying to sway me towards digital I am truly a traditional scrapbooker and card maker! Love getting my "hands dirty" per say!:)

  4. Seriously - it takes me about 6 hours. I'm definitely a card-maker so when I did layouts for someone I was a complete perfectionist! I even used a ruler to measure the bottoms of the pictures and the sides to make sure they were straight! haha.

    FABULOUS layouts DT!!!

  5. Love both the layouts you shared today! Generally, a layout takes me a couple hours to do, mainly because it always seems I find somethin to "fancy cut" - a border, or flowers out of patterned paper. Deinitely goes faster when I use coordinating products :)

  6. Wow, how long to finish a LO, if there's no journalling and I'm really inspired, I'd say one hour... otherwise two (this of course means I'm scrapping at home and have everything on hand I want to do the LO) LOL!

  7. Great pages! I love the textures of the TC Core collection!

    Hmm, it can take me anywhere from 15 minutes to 2+ hours to finish a layout... really just depends on how involved it is!

  8. Love the layouts! If I have a plan for my layout, it doesn't usually take much time. However, if I don't have an idea, it could take a week to finish one!

  9. It totally depends on the layout! If I'm doing a book, I try to do some pages that are intricate and some that are simple / clean to mix it up. :)

  10. Depends on the layout and if I'm focused and by myself or chatting with my friends! I would say an average is one to two hours. Of course if I decide to make my own embellies or get detailed it can go up from there.

  11. Hmmm...that can vary from really quick...15 minutes up to hours!!! hugs, Margie Rowles

  12. I wish I were faster, but I really enjoy the process, so I'm pretty OK with that. It takes me from all day to do a one page lo to three hours to do a two page spread!

  13. Great pages! What an fun week of blog sharing!

  14. I have eyed the "On the Edge" paper all week during the swap, I would love to win it. Thanks for a week of great inspiration.

  15. I love these layouts! I usually take 1 hour or less depending on "distractions". :D

  16. When I have a sketch, I can complete one in 45 minutes up to about 3 hours!! Love the layouts here today! And, thanks for the chance to win!!! I'd be thrilled!

  17. Beautiful projects! Layouts vary, sometimes i get an idea and it falls into place within minutes. other times i just cant make it quite work and have to put it aside several times before finally putting it all together. If I do know what i want, it takes about 30 minutes.

  18. iv only done a dozen or so layouts i pretty new to this. most of the time it take 5 days. i just had back surgery so i cant sit for very long. ill get faster though

  19. Wow it can take up to an hour..depends on how much stuff I put on it. To me the time goes bt so fast...thanks for the awesome giveaway..
