Scrapbook Design ideas

Scrapbook Page With Heart CutoutsDo you ever feel uninspired when scrapbooking? With so many letters, decals, die cuts and stickers, sometimes it feels like every scrapbook page looks the same. When we fall into that rut, sometimes we just need a bit of inspiration. We’ve rounded up our favorite scrapbook page design ideas for those times you could use some help coming with new, creative ideas!

1. Find one of your favorite quotes and run with it

I always find so many quotes that I just love, but I never know where to put them — your scrapbook is an ideal place to showcase some of these. I love what Sam of Happie Scrappie did here, using a classic quote as a way to showcase her love.

This is great with song lyrics, too — including a few of your favorite lines from your first dance as bride and groom on your wedding scrapbook page is so sweet!

2. Illuminate a favorite specific memory

New and creative scrapbook inspirationsRemember that craft ice cream shop that was to die for? Or that museum that you and the hubs spent hours in playing around like little kids? Devote an entire page to these little memories so you are sure not to forget. I love how Allison of All for the Memories took Polaroids and glued them into this page — it totally creates an even more authentic experience. I mean, who doesn’t love snapping photos the old-fashioned way? For a modern way to make this nostalgic look happen, print your photos through Polaroid Fotobar.

3. Re-live old memories

In light of the #throwbackthursdays, old photos are truly a way to vamp up your scrapbook pages with a little vintage love. Find classic pictures of loved ones from the past and watch the nostalgia come flooding in. One of my favorite objects to put together are pictures of parents and their kids at the same age to see the similarities — sometimes it’s like looking in the mirror!

4. Have a few pages with indirect or candid photos

No one loves the idea of feet, however when those feet are of your littlest one who are not so little anymore, it can truly be something you cherish for a lifetime! Don’t be afraid to put indirect shots where a smiling face is not the main focus — shake it up a little bit and be bold with some risky shots.

A simple way to do this is to think about a part of a loved one’s body you adore, or a part of a favorite place you want to remember. Intentionally focus in on this as you are shooting and write up a page about why that specific seat at the coffee shop (or why your husband’s bicep) means so much to you.

5. Be animated

Let your creativity run wild with thematic pages. You don’t have to follow the books and put photos on every page, but you can be super lighthearted like Craftsy member Design on Cloud 9 was when she created this adorable monster page. Create a specific themed page with colorings, images, tickets, etc., for whatever stage you are wanting to remember. The spreads will give your scrapbook such a fun, whimsical style.
