Default Qotd: How long does it take for you to scrap a layout?

Hello everyone.
Did you see the new releases go live in the store? Doesn't it make you want to scrap?

I keep my next question quick and simple.
How long does it normally take for you to scrap a layout?

In my case... It depends. If I have a lot of inspiration and I know which kit and template I want to use, I can create a layout in an hour.
But if I can't find the right kit or template, it can take me 3 to 5 hours. I even redo a lot of my layouts that I want to print later on.

How about you? Are you a speed or a slow scrapper?

I work on many layouts at the same time over the course of a week. I get tons of ideas all at once it seems, then I open up a few papers and get the basics down and tweak all week until the next weekend. Ends up being around a layout a day but its lots of hours of 5 min here, ten there.

Haha no, Sarah, by the time new releases go live I'm excited to be done for the week! :P But I always go shopping and add stuff to my wishlist for when my mojo is back!

As far as how long it takes me to scrap.... it depends on if I have 'just the right photo' in mind or not! I spend more time looking for photos than actually scrapping I think! It used to take me 2+ hours to scrap a page, and I thought it was because I'm a cluster-er/layer-er but it turns out it was my slow and dying hard drive. HAHA... now I have a new, super fast solid state drive iMac and it takes me about 45 minutes to scrap a page.

Probably between an hour and 2 hours. Having a template makes it go a lot faster usually.

3-4 hours. I'm the slowest scrapper out there.

3-4 hours for me, too. The more photos a layout has, the longer it takes me.

Depends on if I am in the mood and things are working for me. If the mojo isn't flowing it can take me many, many attempts and lots of hours. When I am in the mood and have all the right things that make my mojo happy to be doing it's thing about 30-40 minutes or so, if I don't get distracted.

Do I need to include the hours I spend mindlessly surfing social media and Pinterest? Without those, probably like 2ish hours each. Including those, like 3 days.

Yes. This. I've often amazed how much faster I scrap when I turn the Internet off!

Normally a layout takes me 2 hours, but lately it's taking me a few days. I think I use all my brain power on real life, so when I sit down to scrap, it stresses me out to have to make decisions, like which flowers to use or where to put my papers.

I have a really wide variance. Some pages I can whip together pretty quickly - 30 minutes, but others I work on for days and spend hours on. It really depends on whether I have a vision and how complex the design is. My average is probably 2 hours (but while multi-tasking).

Half an hour up to hour and a half, it mostly depends on how many pics I use as it takes me more time to edit them than the LO itself.

It depends but it's no less than an hour. Some of my layouts I start and then set aside because I need time to think about the composition...then I return to them with my mind made up and I finish them so it all depends!

It depends if I can sit down and scrap or if I'm hopping up from the computer doing other things around the house.

If I'm sitting down and focused on scrapping, I can scrap a layout in less than 30-minutes. If I'm bouncing around, it can take me several hours or even several days!
