Five Easy Scrapbook Ideas

March 30, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 149

Looking for easy scrapbook ideas that won't take you hours to complete? Look no further! This article will present five simple scrapbooking layout suggestions to highlight your photos and make your family's stories shine.

1. Best Of. Create a scrapbook layout that highlights your family's "Best Of." For example, for a family vacation page, choose one photo that shows the highlight of the trip. Then have each family member list their favorite memory from the trip. (Bonus: Create a whole album based on this idea, with one page about favorite food, one page about favorite attraction, one page about favorite moment, etc.).

2. Top 5. Like the "Best Of" scrapbook layout, the "Top 5" page can focus on the top movies of the year, the top plays in a soccer season, or the top songs your teen listens to. Note: This approach is a great way to get your kids involved in your scrapbooking! They love lists and getting their opinions on paper.

3. Who/What/When/Where/Why. Go for "just the facts" on your scrapbooking layout by choosing a few photos and accompanying them with the basics. Tell who's in the photo, what they're doing, when and where the photos were taken, and why they were there. You can always go back later and add in additional stories to flesh out the details.

4. In a Word... What if you had to choose only one word or a phrase to summarize the event or moment you are documenting? Maybe a photo collage of your kids running through the summer sprinklers could be titled, "Showers of Fun." A picture of your mom snuggling her first grandchild could be headlined with, "Pure Love." Sometimes a word or two is all you need!

5. 1-2-3. If you're capturing an event that unfolds over time, three photos may be all you need to convey the whole story. For instance, for a wedding page, you could have one photo of the bride walking down the aisle with her father, one of the couple at the altar, and one of the happy newlyweds leaving the church. The story is told through a series of progressive photos on your scrapbook page.

Creating simple scrapbook layouts doesn't have to make your brain hurt or take hours and hours. In fact, I present a ton of different ideas for journaling, design, embellishing your scrapbooking layouts and more on my blog.
