Slow scrapbooker

I love to scrap, but I'm sooooo slow. Any suggestions for how I can speed up my pages? I even tried a pre-made scrapbook, but I still need to decorate it with my own embellishments. It's taking me forever to do my daughter's first scrapbook. Any ideas?

Idea books are a huge asset. I love the Creative Memories books- they have easy step by step ideas that you can change and make your own and the best thing is they're quick and easy.

I'm a planner, I took some of my favorite layouts from magazines and planned my pages based on them. Then when I actually sat down to do them, it seemed to go so much faster. I chose to cut back on embellishments due to bulk and expense and have loved my simple pages jazzed up with cool paper and die-cuts. I journal using Word and just print them rather than try to write it all by hand. You can end up with some grade journal boxes with fun fonts downloaded from the web.
