Scrapbook Layouts

Every scrapbook deserves a great opening page.

For this opening page, Stephanie cut a focal point out of her patterned paper (the Statue of Liberty), matted it on a contrasting color of cardstock, and used pop dots to adhere it over another piece of the same patterned paper to give it a 3D effect.

Cindy used a Cricut Expression to cut many different sized circles for this layout.  The circles echo the rings in the olympic symbol.

More pages of the same event. The doodles were made with Inque Boutique's "Nightingale" stamp collection and black Staz-On ink.  I then highlighted portions of the doodle with a white Uniball pen.


In keeping with the pink and black theme, Cindy used Staz-On "Brilliance" ink and then restamped a little off-set and embossed in light pink.

Stephanie created this mosaic to showcase her many photographs of the Bronx.  Mosaics are a great option when you have a lot of pictures.  Wish in the Wind is just one company that offers paper, tools, and easy tutorials for creating awesome looking mosaics.

Freehand doodling around flowers cut out of patterned paper renders a unique perspective.

Doodles created with stamps and stencils accentuate a single 4x6 photograph.

More of Christen's doodling.  The stars in the background originated from a stencil and were embellished freehand.

Layers of busy patterned paper, flowers, and ribbons reflect the colorful look of the markets in Mexico.

No photos? Use a movie poster! Pages about movies, music, and sporting events add personality and a glimpse of everyday life.

The focus of a page doens't have to be a photograph.  In this layout, Stephanie wanted to show off a guitar pick and autograph she gotafter a concert.  Extensive journaling tells the story behind the memorabilia, and a die cut microphone as well as the band's photo and logo (found on the internet) make colorful and unique embellishments.

Don't forget to make pages chronicalling achievements and to display certificates and other memorabilia.

A sign of the times...include pages about your real life and your lifestyle in your albums. Events alone don't tell your story.

Be sure to caption your photos. Kids grow and change quickly, and others may not recognize the people in your photos.

Two-page layouts are great when you have lots of photos!

Here's another great way to use lots of pictures -- make a collage!

Cindy wanted to poke a little fun at her son's second trip to a popular Boy Scout site.  This digital layout captures the essence of a website hawking software upgrades.
