Good Enough Scrapbooking

I've come up with a new category for many of my scrapbook layouts these days: "good enough". That means they are not a design team assignment, and likely will not be seen in any online galleries. It's more about the photos and story, but I also like the way it looks. No overthinking the process whatsoever. Like this layout I finished yesterday morning.

Now, I did give the page SOME thought. There's a Half and Half design foundation. I've got Color, Pattern, Texture and Shine. (thanks to this article by Lisa Dickinson) And a visual triangle of silver. But still no overthinking. I'll put this in an album and move on to the next layout.

I've been doing lots more "good enough" scrapbook layouts lately. And I love it.


  1. Isn't it a wonderful feeling to just get it done! This page still has your usual solid design and a pinch of pizzazz.

  2. That's a great way to scrapbook. This page turned out fantastic. I need to get moving on some "good enough" pages so I can finish up a few projects that have been on my list for a while.

  3. I like the buttons - I think photos + stories make for good pages. I like taking my time and pushing for some pages, while for others it is all about 'yep, that will do.'

  4. Love the good enough scrapbooking! That's how I try to be. Not always truly happy with my pages, but at least they are done, journaling and all and in an album! Popping in as part of my blog comment challenge 300 in 30 days.
