Cool Scrapbooking ideas

Gold Accents in ScrapbookTo me, scrapbooking is so much more than just making a really nicely crafted photo album. It’s time spent in much-needed solitude, or a time spent with a great group of friends sharing memories of our pasts.

It’s no secret that I have a few albums completed and some I aspire to complete someday. I am always looking for fresh, innovative ideas to create new pages. Today I want to show you a few scrapbooking ideas I have found that are fun and unique.DIY glossed embossing embelishments Perfect for completing that album you’ve been working on for ages!

1. Gold accents

Gold is in. Why not add a metallic touch to your scrapbook pages? Cocoa Daisy shares tips and tricks for accenting your scrapbooks with tiny touches of gold. It’s amazing how just the tiniest golden detail can enhance a page.

3. Cigar box scrapbook

I love this idea idea! A Beautiful Mess shares a wonderful tutorial on how to create a scrapbook out of a cigar box. This would be a fun scrapbook to make for a wedding gift or going away present. The best part about this project is the supplies are relatively inexpensive (cigar boxes typically go for less than $5 in a tobacco store or thrift shop) and the possibilities for customization are endless.
