How many days does it take for you to complete a LO? I think what use to frustrate me was it takes me usually 3 days. I get most of it done in a day then I kinda sit on it and look at it for the next 2 days to see if I should add anything and then I finally adhere everything down.

Usually 1-3 days per layout. Sometimes I have multiple layouts going at once so I can work on one while I think on the other.

It depends. I can usually finish off page in one day if I have a couple of hours to scrap, but occasionally when I'm doing a more complex page I have to let it sit overnight.

Just one day. I never leave projects and pages unfinished, it's just a personal thing. I do that with other things to, like if I start organizing the filing cabinet or something I have to finish it that day.

If I have all day to scrap, I can usually finish 2-3 LOs a day. It's finding a day to do nothing but scrap that is the problem

I can usually finish 4 or 5 layouts if I have most of the day to scrapbook. But that is one of the many ways this hobby provides diversity. What works as a process for one person, doesn't for another person. Don't be discouraged about the length of time it takes for you to complete a layout. Try to embrace your process and go with it.

My method usually involves starting a layout at night and then finishing it in the morning. I like to walk away from it for a while.

It usually takes me one day. Sometimes I'll come back to it and change it up a little in a day or so.

Definitely not a day. I think I must fall into 'super simple scrapper' territory, because I rarely spend even an hour.

I am in awe of the beautiful pages others create, but I can't seem to make that work for me. Even when I scraplift or use a kit, I can't seem to make something I'm happy with.

And perhaps I've fallen into a rut, too.

It takes me between 15 - 30 minutes to complete a page. The longest was probably an hour, for the pages I really want to be special. I'm quick with everything I do, I'm a speed demon.

OMG, it takes me that long just to figure out a title and cut the letters.

I take on average about 2-3 hours to complete a layout.

I never leave the layout laying around to "think on"; when it's done it is DONE and into the book it goes.

I usually take between 2-3 hours to complete a LO. But I find for me the defining factor is whether or not I start with a clear plan (or even just an inkling) of what I want the LO to be or look like and often that takes me a few days to mull over in my head before I'm ready to really start.

I'm sloooow. I can get a layout done in a few hours, but I dont' glue things down. The next day I change things up and move things around, ditto with the next day and the next. After about a week I glue it all down. Crazy, i know.

It depends. Some can take really long and I have made layouts in 30-45 minutes.

It varies, but at least an hour. It depends on how many times I am interupted or how clear the design is in my head!

It usually takes me between 1.5 and 2 hours to complete a layout. Occasionally it takes longer and sometimes not quite that long.

Depends. Sometimes an hour, other times three. Within the last weeks I enjoyed working on pages over a few days, always adding a bit here and there.

If I have time to think about a layout usually with a challenge or sketch, I'll be done in less than 2 hours. (and that's with family interruptions) Otherwise 2 days.

I'm all over the map on time--sometimes it takes me daaaaaays. Other times I can whip something out in 20 minutes. There are so many variables for me:

- have I pondered the LO in advance? did I print the pics already?
- did I buy paper specifically for the LO?
- is it a recent event?
- is it for a specific challenge?
- am I scrap lifting? (Clearly the fastest way!)
- how many pages have I done in the past week (juices flowing helps a lot)
- is any part of the page a new technique/idea for me?

I just never know how long it will take 'til its done!

Between 20 minutes and weeks! Sometimes I get on a roll and can make several layouts quickly and other times I get stuck and I just can't get a layout to work. Usually putting it away for a bit and coming back to it fixes the problem.

This is exactly what works for me. I can get it almost all done in one night. The next morning all of the little details it is missing seem to just work themselves out for me. If I tried to finish it the same day, it would take me hours and hours to figure it out.

My average time per layout is probably 1-2 hours. I do not like leaving a layout out on my desk unfinished so it may take me all day to get it completed, but all total the time is probably about 1-2 hours.

that's a lot like me. it all depends on the pictures, if I have the supplies already, or if its a scraplift.

And I never do a whole layout from beginning to end. Usually I select a few photos, browse the gallery/pinterest/page maps for inspiration. Ponder the story/title. Then pull out supplies. That might all be on one day or over a few days as I have time.
Then the sit down and scrap, that part might take from 1 hour to 3 hours depending on how much time I spent on the above process.

If I have to pull out my silhouette and cut/design titles it could take even longer.

I have noticed the more I do throughout the week the faster I get. I have to have the mojo flowin'!

1-3 days for me also. I don't have very large chunks of time to scrap so I tend to go back to the layout and add bits & pieces or move things around before I can commit to the placements.

If I have all day to scrap, I can get 2 - 3 layouts done depending on the page design.
