My sister gifted me a scrapbook when I first started crafting scrapbooks. She had made the cover and I slowly added pages of girls trips and events- that we had pictures of us together. Down the road it will be a gift to someone and I will keep adding to it little by little as I get more pictures of us. The tricky part is keeping it in a timeline if possible.
When I had finally printed out pictures I had a group of pictures from Fall festival activities and Halloween that I wanted to make a layout for. I chose Halloween colors, cut the pictures down with wavy scissors and added a boarder. I played with the layout of where I would position them before gluing the pictures down. I had a group of stickers to accent the pages and labeled each side for Fall/Halloween.
The summer leading up to my son starting preschool we did lots of things and in the scrapbook I was putting together I needed these two pages to line up together so I used the same colors on them for background and accent colors. I lined up the pictures on one side from an amusement park trip and then the other side from his first day of school.
Birthdays are perfect things to scrapbook throughout the years! I took a few pictures from my sons fourth birthday and double framed them in colors that would accent the background paper I chose. I did them in varying patterns and sizes and arranged them, then added stickers in the birthday theme.
When my son joined a soccer lesson for the first time I wanted to scrapbook a page for him to remember. I already had a page that was decorated in a soccer theme, so I framed some pictures from the season and the award ceremony with an accent color. I arranged the pictures on an angle so that you could still see the detail of the background paper and then I found some soccer stickers.
Our Wedding scrapbook is one of the first full scrapbooks I did and it took me many hours to finish. I used a lot of stickers for the letters which is hard, because you have to line them up and fit them in spaces trying to keep them centered. Spacing it hard to do, but it gives it a more custom look I guess.
