I used to do 4 or 5 layouts in a month, on average. But for the past few months I find myself doing one or two. I've been working art journaling and mixed media much more. What about you?

I'm a very slow scrapper. At the very best I can do 4 layouts a month. Since my daughter was born, I'm lucky if I can do 1 a month.

Not as many as I would like to. I've done 4 so far this month, but all in the same day.

This year is prolific for me. I'm doing between 5 and 12 each month.

I'm a real slow scrapper. My goal is at least 1 a week...that doesn't always happen though

I am on about the same time frame as you all... Last month it was 6, this month so far 3. I'm fine with that though, it wouldn't be fun if I had to pressure myself.

This month, I haven't even finished one 2 pager, it's waiting though!

I'm slow too and simple, but I'm okay with that

I host a compliment corner thread, no challenges just layouts..we are all slow and don't chat much. Still have openings if anyone is interested. Yes I know, shameless plug!!

Depends on what's going on. I haven't done any layouts in a couple months, but I'm going on a trip soon so I'll be cranking out a few dozen layouts in the next month or so. Just depends on when scrap-worthy stuff happens (I don't have kids or pets, so I'm not generating adorable pictures on a regular basis).

I'm not slow - when I have stuff to work on I'm pretty fast - but because I don't have a backlog of stuff, I go long periods between scrappable events where the lack of output has nothing to do with my speed or free time and everything to do with already being done with the most recent vacation or baseball game or other fun thing. (I do do projects about myself and my childhood, that's largely all I've done this year, but now I'm in a holding pattern waiting to be able to scrap the trip I'm taking next week.)

I'm a slow scrapper too. I can pull off about 5 or 6 a month when I'm not super busy with work. I go in spurts.

We are out of town a lot and I'm not able to scrap so many months there are none.

When I'm home, an average month is about 60-75.

I usually have about 400 at the end of a year and considering we are gone about 6 months of the year - the 6 months I'm home that is 60-70 a month.

I do travel layouts - or at least 95% travel layouts and I have a basic formula I work with and I do my journaling in the computer while I'm on the trip so they usually come together pretty easy for me.

Not nearly as many as I would like to. If a spend a whole day with few interuptions, I can do 10 or so. Otherwise only 1 or 2 a month.

Not enough! I'd love to do more, but I think I've done 10 or 15 so far......this year!!

Busy playing in mixed media and art journaling. I'm going to start combining them all. I have so many pics I can't wait to scrap!

Ditto. been too busy playing with mixed media and cards and not enough scrapping. We just moved though and I finally have a room so I'm hoping to be able to complete an album by end of year.

It depends on time. I used to do 20 a month. However the kids don't nap anymore and we have more activities during the day so i'm down to 5ish a month.

Not as many as I use to do because I am really trying to improve my layout style. If I go to a crop however, I'll do up to 20 there. It all depends. I don't like pressure, but this month I joined 2 challenges which inspired me. Yay!

I used to do a lot more, but the past year has seen a lot of changes in our family and time just hasn't been available. But I am hoping to finish my first lo in over a year, this month. Then maybe I will get back on track and do at least 4 per month, maybe more.

Not as many as I would like. I usually only get a few done evey month if I get to the crop. If I wind up not going then none. My craft room is a disater area and I am doing good to keep up on the rest of the house. My craft room doesn't even get touched in terms of going through all of the junk that has been stashed in it since it became a collect all room. :-(

This month....only one!
Usually, I do a few....I've been busy lately and also not had a lot of inspiration....
I went to a weekend crop in April and finished 12 layouts, starting my BOM...
I've been buying a lot of supplies, just not using them! I need to stop the buying until I get more pages done!

It depends on many factors. I can't scrap unless I am home and I'm spending a lot of time with my mom who is in a nursing home. Also a lot of my time is focused on genealogy research...which goes along with my scraping.

My 8.5x11 genealogy pages are fast, I can do those pretty quickly, they are two dimensional.

My 12x12 detailed ones take 3 to 4 days.

I like mixing my projects because I don't get "bored".

Also, when football season starts......I can promise you there will be a slow down of scraping! Can't help it!

So I guess I'm saying it varies.

I have a ton of things to catch up on and hoping with the money we are saving this year that I can get 20 a month done!

I can knock out four or five each month. I try to do more, but it's just not fun after the fourth or fifth.

It really depends for me some months I do about 10 to 15 and other months I might only get about 5 done. It's all about how much time I can steal away
